Derrick Rose may have been the first player selected in the 2008 NBA Draft, but he hasn't been as lucky as some of the players drafted behind him.

Rose, who missed the entire 2012-13 season recovering from an ACL injury, has appeared in 289 games since being drafted, which ranks 24th out of all players from his draft class.

But the former MVP will continue to tumble in the rankings after the Bulls announced Monday he will be sidelined for the rest of the year (70 more games left) with a torn medial meniscus.

Michael Beasley, who was drafted No. 2 overall, comes in at 11th and has played in 362 games since 2008.
