Rose is no stranger to the operating table. He tore his left ACL in the first round of the playoffs in 2012, which forced him to miss the entire 2012-13 season. 

After returning for the 2013-14 season, Rose tore his right meniscus in an early-season game against the Trail Blazers. He missed t

he rest of that season after playing in just 10 games.

Last season, Rose reinjured the right meniscus in February and was out until early April. He was limited to 51 games.

In all, Rose has played in just 100 regular-season games the past four years.
