CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago Bulls superstar Derrick Rose is out indefinitely because of torn cartilage in his right knee that will require surgery, the team said Saturday.

The former MVP has a medial meniscus tear and there’s no immediate timetable for his return.

Rose had an MRI in Los Angeles on Saturday after he was injured a night earlier at Portland. He won’t be with the team for its remaining four games on its six-game trip.

The three-time All-Star sat out last season recovering from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. Now, it’s his other knee that’s injured.

“It’s sad, knowing how hard he worked to get back,” said All-Star guard Chris Paul of the Clippers, who will host the Bulls on Sunday.

Rose’s injury occurred in the third quarter against the Trail Blazers.
