The ACL injury to Derrick Rose is unfortunate

Derrick Rose out for the playoffs, some of next year with the ACL. A shame.

This reminds me of when Joshua Morgan suffered a broken leg late in a game that was decided. But this is a little bit different. It’s the playoffs and Rose has been battling injuries all year. And the fact that it’s a shortened season, keeping players rested is a must.

It’s a shame that Rose got hurt and part of this is the product of a shortened season where players are forced to play back to backs all year long. I do wish that the lockout remained and that the league can go to a full season instead of this.

There have been so many injuries this year and I know a part of it is due to the compacted schedule. Rose shouldn’t have been in the game to begin with. But still, this might have been avoided all together.
