CHICAGO (AP) — Derrick Rose scored 23 points before being helped off the court late in the game with an injured left knee, casting a major cloud over the Chicago Bulls’ 103-91 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers in Saturday’s playoff opener.

Rose crumbled to the ground after he drove the lane. He was going for a layup when he came to a jump-stop and seemed to change his mind, passing off to a teammate before an awkward landing.

Team medical personnel immediately rushed out and tended to Rose for several minutes as he was writhing in pain near the baseline before helping him to the locker room.

Losing Rose would obviously be a huge blow for a team that made the conference finals last season and captured the top overall seed for the second straight year.
