Rose battling tendinitis in right knee
By K.C. Johnson, 7:00 p.m.

Derrick Rose participated in the night practice of Saturdayís double sessions for Bullsí summer-league mini-camp despite battling tendinitis in his right knee.

The No. 1 pick limped noticeably following the morning practice, his knee wrapped in ice, but vowed not to miss games at the Orlando Pro Summer League beginning Monday.

"Iíve been coming 90 minutes early every day to get treatment," Rose said. "Iíll be fine."

Rose said the condition dates to his one season at Memphis and developed for noble reasons.

"I was scared I wouldnít have a good season, so I would stay in the gym for like four hours until I got tendinitis," he said. "Coach (John Calipari) had to tell the managers donít let me in no more because I was tearing up my knees and I had to keep getting MRIs. I just wanted to prove people wrong and let them know that I was going to play hard. Thatís just the way I think."

eh, as usual, there is always every tedious report about some injury. every year same thing, the top picks are always under the microscope. hell, everyone freaked abotu beasley, when he's now perfectly fine :rolleyes:
I'll tell you one thing, expect a mob of rose bashers and beas fans rampage this thread. I saw this article before, and didnt post it just for this reason.
It is a no biggie, but every beas lover will make it a HUGE deal :rolleyes:

im gonna be honest, I love derrick rose, but this legitimately concerns me. I had tendinitis in my knee my senior year of HS and at times it isnt a big deal at all, but at times it was really bad I had a hard time it especially when I sat for a couple minutes and I got a little cold. Now that being said the NBA will have great physicians to help him better that my HS had, and I am alot taller that Derrick Rose, so my knees do take a pounding running up and down the floor but im still concerned if it hurts his explosiveness that will be a major detriment to his game. Like I said earlier tho, thier have great physicians working for him and you look at a guy like steve nash who has Spondylolisthesis and then the great career he had so who knows I'm sure he will be fine. But id be lying if I said i was a little disheartened by this.

Shouldnt be a big deal, im sure 60% of the players in the nba has it.

It's cause for a little concern but it's nothing like what I'd be feeling if I were a Portland fan with the Oden injury concerns. This will be fine, expect him to miss a couple games a year at the most with this.

guys, in case you didnt know, deng also has tenditis and he is perfectly fine, in fact his injuries arent really even related to tenditis, but back...
as for rose, I heard that it only started to really affect him after 4 hourse of nonstop practice, as coach cal said and would try to get rose to practice less...
basically tenditis shoudlnt affect him much unless he becomes an avid dunker which he probably wont in the nba, he will ahve a dunk now and then, but not often enough for this to be a concern

Yeah this would worry me much more if he was a post player. He won't dunk much either, if you watch BG highlights from high school he was throwing down like crazy and he rarely dunks now.

It was just the complete opposite before we drafted Rose. Rose was the all mighty and Beasley was trash and you couldn't say a bad thing about Rose without getting flammed for it. Its peoples opinions so relax bud.

I think you mean BULLS fans. The stupid Rose/Beasley debate has to end, we drafted Rose. Beasley is on the Heat.

Rose has some of the best sports medicine doctors and trainers at his disposal. He will be well-cared for and managed. As posted elsewhere, who doesn't have to deal with tendinitis at some point in their professional basketball career? Let's move on. Rose and Beasley will both be fine.

Not as big of a deal as they make it out to be. They would probably report if he had a cold or a headache too. He's under the spotlight that's all. All eyes are on him.

I'm not trying to bash Rose, but tendinitis is no joke. I remember Jason Williams getting it and he couldn't get on the court. For a player like Rose who relies heavily on his great athleticism this should be a concern. They need to treat him appropriately(i'm sure they will). I'd hate to see his career derailed by something that's completely out of his control. Here's hoping he's 100% for the season...and Monday, should be a great game.

Luol Deng had tendinitus but he said that it got better as his knees got stronger, im not worried about it.

Speaking of injuries how about the fractured sternum
(can u say injury prone)

seriously, every year, the top picks are always under the microscope for every little crime and injury.
I gaurenteee that beas and rose will play 95-100% of the games this season unless the face some random injury on the court nothign relating to the current injuries...

DO us all a favor and STOP POSTING ON THIS BOARD.

Kozelkid is right- you have lots of posts on the Heat board proclaiming your love for them now that they drafted Beasley.

I dont know how anyone else feels about it, but I ONLY respect TRUE BULLS FANS... You are about the farthest thing from it.

Go back to the Heat board and get a life.

My wife is actually an athletic trainer and spends her entire professional life dealing with sports injuries. I told her about this injury and the way people were reacting, she laughed at us and said it's no big deal. She went on to say that everyone has tendonitis on some level and this is absolutely no big deal. Oh and she said it would suck alot more to have a cracked sternum than tendonitis.
