Rose has only played in 100 regular season games during the Bulls' last four seasons due to injuries.
But he's struggled to stay healthy since the start of his NBA career in 2008. (Video via Adidas)
2008-2010: Misses 5 games total due to 2 wrist injuries and a stiff neck.
2011-12 season: The real injuries start to set in.
January: Misses 5 games with a sprained left big toe.
February: Back issues force him out of 5 more games.
March: Sits out 12 games with groin injury.
April: Misses 4 games due to minor ankle and foot issues.
His season ended after tearing his ACL April 29.
"It was very hard, very difficult. I mean, I love the game so much," Rose told CNN.
Rose finally returned for the 2013-14 season.
But not for long.
"Derrick Rose injured his right knee Friday in Portland. And now, an MRI has revealed a tear in his right meniscus," NBA TV reporter Jared Greenberg said. (Video via Adidas)
He missed the rest of the 2013-14 season.

And on Feb. 24, he tore his right meniscus again.
"So here we go again. Poor guy, right? This is the same injury that he suffered during the 2013-14 season," Fox Sports Live anchor Charissa Thompson said.
It's unclear if Rose will be ready for the Bulls' season opener against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
But his teammates have faith he'll bounce back.
"I hope he'll be OK," Taj Gibson told CLTV.
