The Chicago Bulls have announced that point guard Derrick Rose will miss the remainder of the season after he had surgery on his right knee Monday.
Rose left Friday night's game against the Portland Trail Blazers in the third quarter and did not return.
He missed the entire 2012-13 season as he recovered from an ACL tear in his left knee.
According to Peter Childs of Sportsbook.ag, he doesn't possess the same level of value he once did.
"His season averages were all very well below his previous years, which is to be expected. But his below average numbers reflect his diminished value to the pointspread. I would say he’s worth 2.5 to at most 3 points."
But other Eastern Conference clubs - namely the Indiana Pacers - will be keen to seize an opportunity.
"What this really does is set up the Pacers to win that division and to easily secure the 2nd seed in the East, maybe the No. 1 seed if the Heat stumble."
