Rose and Bulls face uncertain future: Point guard suffers third serious knee injury.
Rose injury sparks Twitter reaction: Players around the NBA reach out and wish him well.
Rose suffered a torn meniscus in his right knee earlier this week, the same knee that he had surgery on last season, after suffering a torn ACL in his left knee back in 2012.
As a result, many are questioning whether or not he will be able to continue his NBA career with the threat of another serious setback always around the corner.
James is confident that the 26-year-old will come back stronger than ever and even though he will potentially be at war with the Bulls later in the post-season, he wishes him a speedy recovery and hopes for the best as the pair share a friendship off the court.
Rose will undergo knee surgery in the coming days and the Bulls will wait under the procedure is completed before revealing how long he will be out for as they will decide on whether or not to repair or remove the meniscus.
The general consensus is that the former MVP will be out for the rest of the season, but James made it clear in his exclusive video with Bleacher Report, that he is always available if Rose ever needs anything.
