"Rose is out for the remainder of the season."

The 2010-2011 season MVP averaged 15.9 points and 4.3 assists for the Bulls in the 2013-2014 season.

Rose's college coach John Calipari supported Rose on tweeter.

"If there's anyone who can bounce back from this, it's @drose," posted Calipari.

"My message to Derrick would be to stay strong and stay focused. Love you, kid."
