New York Knicks star Derrick Rose will miss the remainder of the season after suffering a fresh knee injury, the National Basketball Association team confirmed Sunday.
Rose, who has missed the New York Knicks' last two games with soreness in the knee, may well be finished after one season in Manhattan. He will be a free agent this summer.
This is a developing story. He has had multiple knee problems since his 2010-11 MVP season with the Chicago Bulls.
After a strong start to his career which saw Rose winning league MVP in 2010/11 season, Rose has been pestered by knee problems for the better part of his National Basketball Association career, suffering a torn ACL in the 2011/12 season and then a torn MCL in the 2013/14 season.

Speaking from the Rashtrapati Bhavan, PM Modi said the two countries have built a thriving economic partnership. Mr Mukherjee thanked Malaysia for the close cooperation on counter-terrorism issues.
"He will be out for the remaining five games of season", the Knicks said. He tore his left ACL in 2012, and underwent two surgeries on his right meniscus.
Derrick Rose is done for the season after an MRI discovered a small tear in his meniscus.
The inability to stay healthy forced the Bulls to deal Rose to the Knicks during the 2016 draft. Rose averaged 18.0 points, 4.4 assists and 3.8 rebounds this season.
The 28-year-old will require surgery that should take six to eight weeks to heal, per Wojnarowski, which means many teams might not approach him until at least mid-May. Between Joakim Noah's suspension for performance enhancing drugs, Charles Oakley's ejection from a game, and the constant speculation surrounding Phil Jackson and Carmelo Anthony, it's a wonder how anyone still cheers for this team.
