Derrick Rose leaves game with right knee injury (Video)
Rose’s knee appeared to give out after he made a cut. He went to the bench before being helped to the locker room. Bulls reporter K.C. Johnson says Rose did not put any weight on his leg as he was helped off.

The Bulls later announced that Rose had a right knee injury and that he would not return to the game. The torn ACL injury Rose has come back from was in his left knee, so this injury is to his other knee.
Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau expressed concern over Rose after the game.
“He has pain and he said he feels like he can’t push off it. I’m concerned. Anytime anyone goes down you’re concerned. I don’t want to speculate.”
Thibodeau also said Rose will have an MRI on his right knee on Saturday in Los Angeles.
