Derrick Rose leaves game with potentially serious knee injury (VIDEO)

Nov 23, 2013, 1:03 AM EDT

This is potentially bad news, not just for Bulls fans but also for fans of the game of basketball.

With 3:20 left in the third quarter in Portland Friday night Derrick Rose made a back cut and Joakim Noah tried to hit him with a bounce pass, but Nicolas Batum defended it well, stole the pass and headed upcourt.

Rose tries to plant, cut up court to chase the play and in the process injured his right knee.

He left the game not to return. He later came through the locker room on crutches.

It’s hard to tell from the video the severity and there is no preliminary word on what happened, only speculation. Rose will get an MRI on Saturday to determine the severity of the injury, reports Aggrey Sam of CSNChicago.com. The Blazers went on to win the game 98-95.

This is not the knee he had surgically repaired after a torn ACL, an injury that caused him to miss all of last season. However, players compensating after an ACL surgery then injuring the other leg has been known to happen.

Let’s hope it’s nothing serious.

CSN Northwest’s Isaac Ropp tweeted this out.
