PIC: Derrick Rose’s updated list of injuries is pretty sad reading for NBA fans

Will the 2011 MVP ever play at an MVP level again?

Back in 2011, after Derrick Rose became the youngest ever winner of the NBA’s coveted MVP award, the question was just how good could the then 22-year old be?

But when the guard tore the ACL in his left knee in the very first play-off game of the 2011-12 season in April 2012, it all changed. Rose was out of action until October 2013, when he returned for the Chicago Bulls against the Heat. Less than a month later, he was out for the season again, this time after he tore the meniscus in his right knee.

After promising us in the off season he was feeling great, Rose has struggled with repeated knocks since his return, and his minutes have been sparse to say the least.

Last night, Rose hurt his hamstring against the Nuggets, and he had to leave the game. It is being described as a strain but when you stack it up against all the other injuries he has had this season, it looks bleak for Rose right now.

We dearly hope he can get completely fit again as a fully healthy Derrick Rose is one of the greatest players in the world.
