Breaking news: Bulls guard Derrick Rose tore his Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) and he is out for the remainder of the season.

Derrick Rose is out for the remainder of the playoffs after an MRI scan on his left knee revealed he has torn the Anterior Cruciate Ligament in his left knee after landing awkwardly near the end of the Bulls' 109-91 Game 1 win against the Philadelphia 76ers.

Rose landed awkwardly, his left knee collapsed inwards and he did not get up until he was helped from the court by two of the Bulls' medical staff.

Rose complained to teammates afterward that he "felt something pop."

The Bulls continue their playoff campaign against Philadelphia with Game 2 on Tuesday night.
