Knicks’ Rose out at least 8 weeks after surgery

NBA

New York Knicks point guard Derrick Rose had surgery Wednesday on his right ankle, the team said.

Per the Knicks, Rose will be reevaluated in eight weeks. However, a source told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski that there is optimism his return could be closer to a six-week timetable.

Rose had been out with what the team had said was ankle soreness. He last played Dec. 16, going scoreless in 12 minutes against the Houston Rockets.

Rose, 33, is averaging 12.0 points and 4.0 assists in 26 games this season for New York (14-17).

Also Wednesday, the Knicks said Nerlens Noel has been placed in the health and safety protocols and won’t play Thursday against the Washington Wizards. Obi Toppin cleared the protocols and is back with the team.
