After the hit, Rose was taken to Rush University Medical Center by Bulls medical staff, so he could be examined. It was determined that surgery would be required after he consulted with several specialists. The surgery will take place Wednesday, Sept. 30 at Rush, and a timetable for Rose’s return will be made afterwards.
