There have recently been rumors spreading that Chicago Bulls
point guard Derrick Rose acknowledged he could miss the entire 2012-13 NBA
season. However, Bryan Crawford of NBCChicago.com believes the only way Rose
will be sidelined for the entire year will be if he experiences a setback
during rehab or the “crippling mental fear of re-injury.”
For his part, D. Rose has said a number of times that he doesn't even know when he'll be back. But realistically speaking, only two things could sideline him for the entire year: a setback in rehab or the crippling mental fear of re-injury.
