Breaking: Chicago's Rose out 8-12 months!

CHICAGO (AP) Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose faces a recovery of eight months to a year in his recovery from knee surgery.

The assessment by Dr. Brian Cole on Tuesday means the star point guard could return around Feb. 1 or miss next season. The doctor adds there is a chance Rose could be back sooner, but ''we're not going to rush it.''

The Bulls had already said Rose has a torn ligament in his left knee. Cole says there is there is also a small cartilage tear. He says Rose is ''doing great'' and surgery went ''extremely well.''

Wow. That is devastating.

Like the 2012 season never happened for them.

You never want to see anyone injured and he seems like one of the good guys who you love to watch play.

Wonder if he's gonna make it all the way back. He's been a special player, and it would be a shame to lose him.

Why is this breaking news?
A torn ACL usually takes 8-12 months of recovery.

Best of luck to the dude, but if he makes any type of impact before '13-'14, he's ahead of the curve.

Chicago may as well tank next season and get a lottery pick to compliment Rose when/if he returns.

How long is he under contract there anyway?
