derrick rose injury - most injury-prone players in nba history

This week, the Chicago Bulls announced that Derrick Rose had torn the medial meniscus in his right knee and would be sidelined indefinitely. The news was hardly shocking, seeing as how Rose is one of the most injury-prone players in the NBA. In fact, this is his third major knee injury in just two years. But it still felt like a punch in the gut to Bulls fans, whose team will now head to the playoffs without their best player for the third straight years.

Of course, Bulls fans aren’t the only ones who have had to watch superstar talent get derailed by chronic injuries. Today, we’re going to take a look at the 13 most injury-prone players in NBA history. It’s still too early to say where Derrick Rose will fall, but unless this is the last major injury of his career and he goes on to win five rings, he’s crack the top five eventually.
