Derrick Rose may miss a year

Posted:
CHICAGO (KWWL) -

Tom Thibodeau will remain the Chicago Bulls' head coach next season, although he could spend the upcoming campaign without his best player.

Bulls general manager Gar Forman says the team will exercise its contract option on Thibodeau while trying to negotiate a new deal. The Bulls have gone 112-36 in two seasons under Thibodeau, tying San Antonio for the NBA's top record this year after winning a league-high 62 games in his rookie season as head coach. But the Bulls were first-round losers to the Philadelphia 76ers this month.

Meanwhile, the Bulls say guard Derrick Rose will be out at least eight months and could miss the entire 2012-13 season following knee surgery.

Dr. Brian Cole says there is a chance Rose could be back sooner, but they aren't going to rush the 2011 league MVP.

Rose suffered a torn ligament and cartilage damage in Game 1 of the Bulls' playoff series with Philadelphia.
