New York Knicks point guard Derrick Rose could be out for multiple games following an ankle sprain he suffered on Friday night.

According to Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN, New York Knicks point guard Derrick Rose will be forced out of action on Sunday and potentially longer following an ankle sprain he received on Friday night.

It’s never a good sign when news comes down regarding Derrick Rose and injury, considering the outstanding history he has racked up in his career.

Rose suffered the ankle sprain with 4:19 remaining in the third quarter on Friday night against the Charlotte Hornets. Luckily, x-rays were done and came back negative, so the injury does not seem as if it is too serious.

Brandon Jennings will start in Rose’s place on Sunday, who is currently averaging 17.9 points and 4.4 assists per game, numbers that aren’t too shabby.

At this point, the only thing Knicks fans can hope for is a healthy return for their point guard and attempt to find New York a spot in postseason basketball.
