Doctor: Bulls' Derrick Rose Out 8-12 Months
CHICAGO (AP) -- Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose faces a recovery of eight months to a year in his recovery from knee surgery.

The assessment by Dr. Brian Cole on Tuesday means the star point guard could return around Feb. 1 or miss next season. The doctor adds there is a chance Rose could be back sooner, but ''we're not going to rush it.''
