Awful news for the Chicago Bulls as Derek Rose reportedly has torn the ACL and MCL in his left knee after landing awkwardly in garbage time of the Bulls win over the Sixers on Saturday.
UPDATE: As SBNation has pointed out, the NBC Miami and subsequent Breaking News tweets may have been fooled by a hoax.
UPDATE2: NBC Miami has now retracted their original tweet, saying it was premature.
