LOS ANGELES--Derrick Rose suffered a medial meniscus tear in his right knee Friday night in Portland and will require surgery, the Bulls announced Saturday afternoon.

The point guard, who missed all of last season recovering from a torn left ACL injury that occurred on April 28, 2012, is out indefinitely and won't travel with the team on the remainder of their road trip, which resumes with Sunday's matinee affair against the Clippers at the Staples Center.

The injury occurred on a non-contact play in the third quarter of the Bulls' 98-95 loss to the Trail Blazers.

Rose exited the game with 3:20 remaining in the period and according to a source, he said his knee "locked up" on him.

Shortly thereafter, he limped off to the visiting locker room at the Moda Center--with assistance from the Bulls' training staff, as it appeared he couldn't put any weight on his right leg--and was on crutches following the game.
