Rose and his agent, B.J. Armstrong, have both said publicly that Rose would like to return to NY as a free agent.
The injury news was surprising, as coach Jeff Hornacek said shortly before the game that while Rose had been bothered by swelling in the knee, he believed he could play again this season.
Rose, 28, had played in 64 of the Knicks' 76 games this season, but this is another knee injury for the three-time All-Star and 2010-11 MVP.
You would figure this would spell the end of Rose's time in NY, considering the fact that he walked away from the team at one point this year without informing them. "I really can't think about or see how it's going to go while I'm still playing here".
"He will be out for the remaining five games of season", the Knicks said. "You can look at it that way", teammate Courtney Lee said.
Rose tore his left ACL in the 2012 playoffs and missed the entire next season. Rose will miss the remainder of the season with a torn meniscus, per Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.
The latest injury is likely to weaken Rose's attempts to secure a lucrative new contract when free agency begins in June. Rose averaged 18.0 points, 4.4 assists and 3.8 rebounds this season. "Again, the way the season has gone, to have something like that happen towards the end is a bad break for us".
