Any Jazz fan that watched in horror as D-will landed on the ankle of Derrick Rose and had to be carried off the court had to be nervous and terrified as to the extent of the injury and the amount of time he might miss. X-rays were negative, and the MRI scheduled today showed there was no damage to the bones, ligaments, or tendons, and classified it as a second-degree ankle sprain with a minimum recovery time of 2 weeks.
This means he will miss the last pre-season game, and at least the first 2 regular season games, including the season opener against division-rival Denver Nuggets.
Assuming how bad it COULD have been, this is great news. He will miss just a couple of games early and the season, and praying he comes back healthy and stays healthy, we should still have him for the rest of the season.
