Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose will miss the remainder of the playoffs with a torn ACL, according to USA Today

This is a devastating blow to the Bulls, who won Saturday's game over the Philadelphia 76ers 103-91.

Rose, who has struggled with injures all season long, was helped off the court after he awkwardly went down on his left leg.

Much to the dismay of Bull's fans, there was only 1:10 left on the clock when he suffered a torn ACL. Questions will be directed at head coach Tom Thibodeau as to why Rose was still in the game when the Bulls had a 10-point lead.

When asked about the timing of the injury, Thibodeau said it was unfortunate (via USA Today).

It's part of the game. There are going to be injuries. … You can get hurt any time. You've got to deal with it. He's had a lot of injuries this year, it's unfortunate. But we'll deal with it.

Thibodeau will surely be under the gun to provide answers while the Bulls will have to fill a gigantic hole with the absence of Rose.

The Bulls are looking for their first championship title since the Michael Jordan dynasty. Losing Rose will make the Bulls clear underdogs if they should match up against the Miami Heat
