CHICAGO -- Two of the biggest stars in Chicago sports suffered serious injuries.

Bulls point guard Derrick Rose could be done for the year after his third knee injury.

It's not clear when he hurt it, but Rose missed Tuesday's practice because of knee soreness.

An MRI found that he tore the meniscus in his right knee again. Rose suffered a similar injury, to the same knee, in 2013. That one ended his season after ten games.

But the Bulls say they won't know the extent of the latest injury until after he has surgery.

A return may be unlikely since the Bulls only have 25 regular season games, followed by the playoffs.

Additionally, Blackhawks Right Winger Patrick Kane could miss some significant time.

Kane left Tuesday night's game after Florida Panther Alex Petrovic checked him into the boards.

Kane's left side hit the boards hard. He was bent over as he skated off the ice, and he would not return.

The Blackhawks did not give details on his condition. The Chicago Tribune reports Kane could miss six to ten weeks.

That could be long enough to end his season, depending on how far the Blackhawks go in the playoffs.

"Kane doesn't miss much," said Coach Joel Quenneville. "You miss a valuable guy, a buddy. He's having one of those years that are very noticeable. The guys still have to stick with it. You have to go with what you have."
