Forman added that he should be on the floor in a week to start rehab and said that it was a relatively minor procedure compared to his previous knee surgery. Forman also said that Rose was able to walk out of the hospital on Friday after the surgery. For most fantasy basketball leagues, he probably will not come into play especially with Rose's history of being diligent in returning from injuries.

Rose (knee) will undergo surgery Friday, after which the Bulls will release a timetable, Nick Friedell of ESPN reports.
It's still too early to speculate how much time Rose will miss, but the situation should become much more clear after Friday morning's announcement. While there is a slight chance Rose could return later this season, it seems likely he'll be ruled out for the remainder of 2014-15, and the Bulls are already reportedly interested in adding help at the point guard spot.

Rose has a medial meniscus tear of the right knee and will need surgery, USA Today's Sam Amick reports.
This is just awful news, as Rose has become the poster child for fragility this decade, and it sounds like his season will be cut short by yet another knee surgery. This is Rose's second medial meniscus tear in his right knee, and he previously tore the ACL in his left knee. It is not clear when Rose will undergo surgery and the team has not yet announced if he will miss the remainder of the season, but that seems extremely likely. Kirk Hinrich and Aaron Brooks will have to shoulder the load at point guard with Rose out.

Rose had 30 points and seven rebounds in 43 minutes Tuesday against the Warriors. However, he also had a career-high 11 turnovers compared to one assist and it took a 13-for-33 shooting performance to reach those 30 points.
While Rose does tend to be a bit turnover prone, having 11 of them in one game is a total anomaly. As for his shooting, a 13-for-33 mark from the field that included a 4-for-12 performance from beyond the arc, was also out of the ordinary. He clearly didn't have his legs under him on some of his outside shots late in the game, which has to be at least partially attributable to him being on the floor for over 40 minutes. Don't expect a stat-line like this from him, or anyone, for a while.
