MIAMI - Miami guard Dwyane Wade got the news during the middle of his game Saturday afternoon, and he was shaken.
Bulls guard Derrick Rose, like Wade a native of Chicago, had been seriously hurt earlier in the day against Philadelphia. He later was ruled out for the rest of the playoffs due to a torn ACL in his left knee.
Its very unfortunate, Wade said after his teams 100-67 win over New York in Game 1 of an East first-round series. When I heard about it, actually during the game, I said a prayer for him and his family. You never want to see anyone get injured, especially a player his caliber. Very unfortunate. The only thing you hope is hell do his best to rehab and get back to being the D-Rose that everyone loves.
The loss of Rose might have shaken up the East playoff race significantly considering the Bulls are the No. 1 seed and Miami is No. 2. But Heat forward LeBron James didnt want to look at it that way.
Im worried about the Knicks, James said. Its unfortunate that injury has happened for him and that team. But Im worried about the Knicks. Im not worried about the Bulls.
Rose won last years MVP while James is expected to be handed this years trophy. Rose went down in a heap with 1:22 left in Chicagos 103-91 playoff win.
It is unfortunate, said Miami forward Chris Bosh. You never want to see anybody go down... Hopefully, he can heal properly and play another day.
That day wont be until next season.
As for this campaign, the Heat cant run into the Bulls into the Eastern Conference finals. It should be noted Chicago went 1-1 against Miami this season without Rose. And the Bulls beat the Heat 96-86 April 12 in Chicago when Rose shot just 1-of-13 and was benched for the night late in regulation and during an overtime.
They played without him all year, they have a comfort zone, Wade said of Rose having missed 27 regular-season games and the Bulls going 18-9. Obviously, when you dont have the MVP of the league, a dynamic player like D-Rose, it changes things. But its not our concern right now.
Interestingly, the NBA recently announced the two biggest selling jerseys during the regular season belonged to Rose and New York guard Jeremy Lin. The Heat wont see Lin this series because of a knee injury and now have no chance of running into Rose.

Derrick Rose was forced to leave Game 1 of the NBA Playoffs early due to a left leg injury. The injury occured with just over a minute to play in the game with the Bulls leading comfortably. Chicago will be holding their collective breaths until they hear the extent of the injury. I am no doctor, but it did not look good. Rose is scheduled to have a MRI immediately.

Eastern Conference#1 Chicago Bulls vs. #8 Philadelphia 76ers Sources say while Derrick Rose was rehabbing his injury he actually took the SAT himself and passed. Just kidding.

The Miami Heat were dismantling the New York Knicks again in Game 2 of their playoff series thanks mostly to Dwyane Wade who had 19 first half points. However Wade was not able to convert on this missed dunk attempt that bounced all the way back to the three-point line. Pat Riley was none too pleased.

As someone who has torn his ACL, I know what lies ahead for D. Rose. You never want to see a star player go down in playoff time. You want to see a team compete with their best. With that said, the Bulls are done.
