Derrick Rose's season and presumably his New York Knicks career seem to be over thanks to a torn meniscus.

Rose missed the Knicks' last two games in what was originally described as knee soreness.

Rose tore the ACL in his left knee during the 2012 playoffs and missed the entire following season. This injury will require arthroscopic surgery (his fourth knee surgery) at the worst possible time as he's set to hit free agency this summer.

The 28-year-old last appeared in a game Monday against the Detroit Pistons, scoring 27 points in a win.

Off-court legal issues and a sudden, random disappearance threw unexpected wrenches into his season, but Rose was generally productive for the Knicks in 64 games as he averaged 18 points and six assists per night. Since the 2011-12 season Rose has not averaged more than 20 points per game in a season.

Comey: I know when I'm going to cause a 'storm'
According to Newsweek , Comey had considered drafting an op-ed, and he presented the idea to top White House officials of the Obama administration last summer.

It's likely going to end with a one-year, make-good contract for Rose, which doesn't fit into New York's long-term plans.

Knee injuries have plagued the three-time All-Star and 2010-11 MVP while he was with the Bulls.

The inability to stay healthy forced the Bulls to deal Rose to the Knicks during the 2016 draft.

Rose and his agent, B.J. Armstrong, have both said publicly that Rose would like to return to NY as a free agent. "I'll be a free agent".
