Bulls star Derrick Rose, who missed all of last season while recovering from a torn ACL in his left knee, will miss the remainder of this season after having surgery Monday morning to repair a torn medial meniscus in his right knee, the team announced.
Rose was injured in the third quarter Friday night’s game in Portland, when he lost his footing while changing direction transitioning to defense. He limped across the court, unable to put any weight on his knee, and left the game after the Trail Blazers scored. He was seen on crutches after the game.
“We, of course, feel very badly for Derrick. He’s in good spirits, about as well as can be expected under the circumstances, and he’s already thinking about his rehab,” coach Tom Thibodeau said Sunday, before the extend of the injury was revealed. “Typical Derrick. He’s concerned about his team, his teammates.”
Rose has played just 49 regular-season games since winning NBA MVP after the 2011 season.

AROUND THE WEB:
• A woman jumped from the third deck at Oakland’s O.co Coliseum right after Sunday’s Raiders-Titans game in an apparent suicide attempt. She was taken to the hospital in critical condition, according to authorities, and a man who attempted to catch her suffered serious injuries.
Fans were filing out of the stadium following Oakland’s 23-19 loss to the Titans when the woman went to an area that is closed off by a tarp and, despite fans below urging her not to jump, leaped off the edge, falling about 45 feet.
A Raiders season ticket-holder on the concourse who had repeatedly shouted “Don’t do it” was praised for his heroic attempt to break her fall. The 61-year-old man, identified as an ex-Marine, lunged toward her.
“He saved her life, quite honestly, at his own expense,” Alameda County Sheriff’s Sgt. J.D. Nelson told the Oakland Tribune. “This guy 100 percent saved her life. She’d be dead now.”
The man was conscious and talking at the hospital. He is expected to survive.
“He just couldn’t imagine having people see that,” Nelson said Sunday night. “He said it was a reaction. Even now, at the hospital he’s very concerned about her. He’s a real compassionate person.
“Raider fans get a bad reputation, yet here’s this guy that went way over and above what most people would do to try and save this woman.”
• Shortstop Jhonny Peralta, who served a 50-game suspension for his participation in the Biogenesis PED scandal, agreed to a four-year deal with the Cardinals worth a reported $50 million, and his good fortune did not sit well with some fellow major leaguers.
“It pays to cheat,” tweeted Diamondbacks pitcher Brad Ziegler. “Thanks, owners, for encouraging PED use.”
Added free agent pitcher David Aardsma: “Apparently getting suspended for PEDs means you get a raise. What’s stopping anyone from doing it?”
Peralta, 31, hit .303/.358/.457 with 11 home runs and 55 RBIs in 107 regular-season games for the Tigers this past season. He returned in late September and shined in the postseason — including Detroit’s ALCS loss to the Red Sox — hitting .333/.353/.545 with one home run, four doubles and six RBIs in 10 playoff games.
He was supplanted at short by Jose Iglesias, whom the Tigers acquired from the Red Sox in a three-team trade on July 30.
• Rock legend Jon Bon Jovi, long known as a big NFL fan and friend of Patriots coach Bill Belichick, reportedly plans to make a bid to buy the Bills when the team is put up for sale.
The Bills are are owned by 95-year-old Ralph Wilson, and the plan is for the team to be made available at some point after his death.
Bon Jovi reportedly has been meeting with NFL executives as well as representatives in Buffalo to prepare for his attempt to own the team. His main challenger is expected to be Rogers Communications, which is based in Toronto.

AROUND THE WEB:
• Alex Rodriguez was not there — a day after claiming to be so incensed about the unfairness of his grievance hearing that he could not stay — but his lawyers were, and the hearing about his 211-game suspension ended Thursday in New York as both sides rested their case.
A decision by arbitrator Fredric Horowitz reportedly will come in January, and Rodriguez’s lawyers already are saying they plan to challenge the ruling in federal court.
“We’ll wait for the decision, which we all sort of expect, based on what’s gone on here,” said Rodriguez’s lead attorney, Joseph Tacopina. “And then we’ll take it to a different jurisdiction. A real jurisdiction. … We’ll head to another venue after this is done. We’ll be able to depose Mr. [Bud] Selig, one way or the other.”
A-Rod’s representatives also said they may continue their PR blitz Friday by releasing some evidence, although they seemed to back off their plan late Thursday, as Horowitz has issued a confidentiality order.
“It’s uncertain,” Rodriguez spokesman Ron Berkowitz said. “They’re still weighing their options of what they can and cannot release.”
As has been the case throughout the proceedings, the circus around the hearing continued. Outside MLB’s New York offices, representatives of the New York Hispanic Clergy Organization, including state Sen. Ruben Diaz, showed their support for the embattled player by holding a prayer vigil.
And Hall of Fame baseball writer Peter Gammons got himself in a little hot water with a comment about Rodriguez, when he said on ESPN Radio in New York: “He wants to blow up the world. He’s like the marathon bombers.”
Gammons later tweeted an apology.
• While the A-Rod mess continued Thursday, MLB Players Association union head Michael Weiner, who had been diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor last year, died at his home in New Jersey. He was 51.
Tweeted Pirates outfielder Andrew McCutchen: Michael Weiner worked even thru his sickness. He didn’t look at it as an excuse to quit. He never gave up on us even when at his worst.
Former Red Sox first baseman Tony Clark was named acting executive director Thursday and is expected to be named to the post on a permanent basis at a union board meeting Dec. 2-5.
“Words cannot describe the love and affection that the players have for Michael, nor can they describe the level of sadness we feel today,” Clark said in a statement. “Not only has the game lost one of its most important and influential leaders in this generation, all involved in the game have lost a true friend.”
Selig called Weiner “an extraordinarily talented professional who earned the trust of his membership and his peers.”
“Our strong professional relationship was built on a foundation of respect and a shared commitment to finding fair solutions for our industry,” the commissioner said in a statement. “I appreciated Michael’s tireless, thoughtful leadership of the players and his pivotal role in the prosperous state of baseball today. Michael was a courageous human being, and the final year of his remarkable life inspired so many people in our profession.”
• A group that promotes diversity and job equity in the NFL released a statement Thursday calling on players to stop using the N-word on the field.
Fritz Pollard Alliance executive director Harry Carson and chairman John Wooten said officials have heard the racially charged term regularly during games, and they called for ejections and fines.
“As former players (along with thousands of others) who have worked hard in different eras of the game to leave proud legacies for those who follow us, we are appalled and extremely disappointed to learn that the worst and most derogatory word ever spoken in our country is being used during games as well as casually in the locker room,” the statement reads.
“We are not asking players to point fingers or to report who said what when. We are simply asking that you respect the dignity of your teammates, fellow players, officials, coaches, fans, and yourselves. Most importantly, we ask that you respect every man who has worn the uniform but especially those men who helped make the National Football League what it is today and have made it possible for you to follow in their footsteps. Refusing to use the N-word will show that respect.”
The term allegedly was at the center of a dispute last weekend between Washington offensive lineman Trent Williams and umpire Roy Ellison, who was accused of berating Williams during the game. Williams denied inciting Ellison by using the N-word toward him.
Said Williams: “I didn’t say any derogatory statements to him. … I laugh at that statement.”

AROUND THE WEB:
• Alex Rodriguez made a scene and stormed out of Wednesday’s suspension hearing in New York, claiming to be irate that commissioner Bud Selig would not be forced to testify. And the show didn’t stop there.
Rodriguez then turned up in the studio of New York sports radio station WFAN with his attorney and did an on-air interview with Mike Francesa in which he described his reaction to the arbitrator’s ruling the Selig did not have to appear.
“I lost my mind. I banged a table and kicked a briefcase and slammed out of the room,” Rodriguez said. “I probably overreacted, but it came from the heart.”
Even though Selig has never testified in a similar PED-related hearing, and MLB was represented by COO Rob Manfred, A-Rod and his legal team chose to make this the centerpiece of their claim that the hearing is tainted. And Rodriguez, who professed his innocence and claimed he is fighting for his family and the people who support him, said it’s personal.
“My only message to the commissioner is, I know you don’t like New York, but come to New York and face the music,” Rodriguez said of the soon-to-be-retired Selig. “He hates my guts, there’s no question about it. One hundred percent it’s personal, and I think this is about his legacy, and it’s about my legacy, and he’s trying to destroy me.”
Rodriguez also said he would not change anything about the way has handled his appeal of his 211-game suspension.
“I have no regrets,” he said. “I would do it again. It’s the system that’s wrong.”
• With the Steelers having a surprisingly disappointing season, rumors are swirling that quarterback Ben Roethlisberger wants out after the season. Roethlisberger has denied the reports, and on Wednesday he took it a step further, implying that he’ll make financial concessions in an effort to return.
“You know what? Obviously, I will do whatever I need to do,” said Roethlisberger, who is scheduled to cost the Steelers $17.89 million toward their salary cap next season. “That’s something that can be discussed when the time comes. It’s not really my thing. I play football. I have people to deal with all that stuff. I will do whatever it takes to stay here and be a part of this team and help this team win.”
The Steelers, who went a combined 24-8 during the 2010 and ’11 seasons and have won two Super Bowls with Roethlisberger under center, are 4-6 this year after going 8-8 in 2012. Roethlisberger has two more years on his contract.
“I love being in Pittsburgh,” he said. “I am extremely happy.”
• After being involved with the NFL for 43 years, Dan Dierdorf is ready to step away. The 64-year-old Hall of Fame offensive lineman announced Wednesday that he will retire from his analyst job with CBS after this season, as the physical demands of all the traveling is too much for his football-damaged body.
A six-time All-Pro with the Cardinals who played from 1971-83, Dierdorf moved to the broadcast booth right after his playing career ended and has been there for 30 years.
“I’ve just never done anything else in the fall other than be in an NFL stadium,” he said.
Dierdorf has two artificial knees, two artificial hips and back issues, which makes travel difficult. He said he might still work some games on a part-time basis, if there is no travel involved.

According to multiple reports, Alex Rodriguez lashed out at Major League Baseball COO Rob Manfred and stormed out of his grievance hearing Wednesday, upset that arbitrator Fredric Horowitz ruled that commissioner Bud Selig did not have to testify before the player’s attorneys.
Rodriguez reportedly slammed his hand on a table and pointed at Manfred, telling him, ‘You know you’re full of [expletive],’ before leaving the hearing. It was the 11th day of hearings to decide Rodriguez’s appeal of his 211-game suspension for violating the league’s drug agreement and labor contract.
Rodriguez later issued a statement that read:
“I am disgusted with this abusive process, designed to ensure that the player fails. I have sat through 10 days of testimony by felons and liars, sitting quietly through every minute, trying to respect the league and the process. This morning, after Bud Selig refused to come in and testify about his rationale for the unprecedented and totally baseless punishment he hit me with, the arbitrator selected by MLB and the Players Association refused to order Selig to come in and face me.
“The absurdity and injustice just became too much. I walked out and will not participate any further in this farce.”

Yankees President Randy Levine took the stand on Tuesday during day 10 of Alex Rodriguez‘s grievance hearing and denied conspiring with Major League Baseball to suspend Rodriguez 211 games last summer.
A person with knowledge of the proceedings told The Associated Press that Levine spoke for 10-15 minutes and denied any personal or financial gain he would have received by conspiring to suspend Rodriguez. He also denied communicating with MLB commissioner Bud Selig regarding Rodriguez’s discipline, and telling Rodriguez’s surgeon, Dr. Bryan Kelly, or anyone else, that he wanted the Yankees third baseman off the field.
New York signed Rodriguez to a 10-year, $275 million contract extension in 2007. Four years and $86 million still remain, despite the fact that he may miss more than a season due to suspension, and that his production is diminishing at age 38.
The hearing began before arbitrator Fredric Horowitz on Sept. 30 and resumed Monday after one month of inactivity.
Rodriguez received a 211-game suspension from MLB for violating the league’s drug agreement and labor contract on Aug. 5, but the appeal process allowed him to play the remainder of the season.

Just when it seemed like Richie Incognito was distancing himself from the limelight, he was thrust right back onto center stage on Tuesday.
Incognito reportedly mocked the ethnicity of a Miami staff member, according to the National Football Post, which reported that another unnamed Dolphins teammate was involved.
The report states that Incognito would make the staff member uncomfortable by mockingly donning clothes from the staffer’s culture and making profane jokes about that culture.
Miami is aware of the allegations but has not yet prepared a statement, according to ESPN.
The Dolphins suspended Incognito indefinitely on Nov. 4 for his involvement in the alleged bullying of teammate Jonathan Martin.
Since Incognito participated in an interview with Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer that aired Nov. 10, the accusations surrounding the player, which were previously coming rapidly, had slowed.

• The fan who fell from the third deck at Buffalo’s Ralph Wilson Stadium during Sunday’s Bills-Jets game has been banned from the stadium and might face assault and reckless endangerment charges for his behavior.
Robert Hopkins was sliding down the railing when he lost his balance and tumbled backward about 25 feet to the level below, landing on another fan. Both men were treated and released from an area hospital.
“The irresponsible behavior that occurred at [Sunday's] game by the fan who fell from the upper deck is a violation of our Fan Code of Conduct and cannot, and will not, be tolerated,” team president and CEO Russ Brandon said in a statement. “This individual will not be permitted back into Ralph Wilson Stadium.”
Added Erie County executive Mark Poloncarz: “[Sunday's] reckless and dangerous incident at Ralph Wilson Stadium is an example of the type of behavior that gives Buffalo a bad reputation and that can never be tolerated, dismissed or accepted. By his actions, this individual has shown that he is a danger to himself and others, and we fully support barring him from future events at the stadium.”
Hopkins also apparently lost his job, as the advertising and public relations agency Eric Mower and Associates released a statement indicating the 28-year-old “is no longer employed by EMA.”
The Buffalo News notes that at least 39 spectators have fallen at stadiums in the last decade, with 10 of them suffering fatal injuries.
• Browns lineman Jason Pinkston said he and his teammates are “lucky to be alive” following the team’s plane ride home from Sunday’s game in Cincinnati. Flying in heavy rain and 50 mph winds — team executives considered taking a bus home but decided the short flight would be safe — the team endured a turbulent flight that had a rough landing in which a gust of wind caused the left side of the plane to tilt before the pilot recovered it.
“There were a bunch of screams,” Pinkston said. “You could hear everyone screaming on the plane. It was pretty real. I screamed, because I was sitting right over [left] wing. My window was open and I saw the whole thing.”
Added Pinkston: “It was terrifying. It was the real thing. The weather was so bad. We were coming in to land and [the pilot] had to go kind of fast to balance it out and we came down and hit on two wheels. The [left] wing was literally three feet from hitting the ground.
“We’re actually pretty lucky to be alive right now, to be honest. We really escaped one. We got away with one [Sunday] night.”

Verbruggen dismissed Armstrong’s accusation, writing in a message to a Netherlands television network: “Since when do people believe Lance Armstrong?”

The Nets’ latest game against the Trail Blazers on Monday was perhaps the best representation of their season so far, as it was marked by inconsistency and ultimately disappointment.
After hitting 14 of their first 19 shots and scoring 40 points in the first quarter, the Nets completely fell apart, finishing 3-of-18 from the field in the third quarter before ultimately falling, 108-98.
After the game, Brooklyn’s locker room remained closed for 25 minutes, as the team held a players-only meeting. When the doors finally opened, a majority of the team had left, including former Celtics Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett, leaving only Mason Plumee, Jason Terry and Shaun Livingston available to answer for the team’s tough defeat.
After acquiring Pierce and Garnett from the Celtics on June 28 and constructing a team with a $100 million payroll, the Nets entered the 2013-14 season as one of the favorites in the Eastern Conference. However, Brooklyn has failed to live up to expectations, as the Nets are last in the Atlantic Division with a 3-7 record and have lost five of their last six games.
Injuries have played a big part of the team’s struggles so far, as Deron Williams, Andrei Kirilenko and Brook Lopez all missed Monday’s contest, while Garnett and Pierce have missed games as well.
Garnett and Pierce contributed to the Nets’ shooting woes against Portland. Garnett started off strong, scoring 12 points on 6-of-6 shooting in the first quarter, but he cooled off considerably, finishing the game with 16 points on 8-of-19 shooting. Pierce could not get anything going all night, as he scored 11 points on 2-0f-12 shooting.
Pierce and Garnett have struggled this season, as Pierce is on pace to post the lowest scoring average of his career (13.2 points per game) while Garnett only shot 30 percent from the field over the first eight games. Monday’s game was the first time this season that Garnett had scored in double figures.
The Nets’ attempt to turn their season around will not get any easier, as they are set to play five of their next seven games on the road to close out the month. Brooklyn is 1-5 in games outside Brooklyn.
“We’ve got to just get it done, man,” said guard Alan Anderson. “We can’t keep saying it. We just have to do it.”

Robinson Cano likely will be back in New York for the 2014 MLB season, but there’s a chance that the five-time All Star may not be wearing pinstripes.
Two sources told the New York Post that rapper/agent Jay-Z and other members of Cano’s agency team held a “secret meeting” with the Mets on Monday night at a high-scale Manhattan hotel.
Mets COO Jeff Wilpon, general manager Sandy Alderson and assistant GM John Ricco were in attendance for the meeting, which reportedly was initiated by Jay-Z and agents Brodie Van Wagenen and Juan Perez. Cano was not present for the meeting.
Cano, the top prize of the 2014 free agent class, has made it clear that if he cannot get a sizable payday from the Yankees, for whom he has played since 2005, he will look elsewhere. The Yankees and Cano are said to be almost $150 million apart on a new deal, as Cano is seeking a 10-year, $310 million contract while the Yankees responded with an offer of seven years and between $161 million and $168 million.
Jay-Z has made it known that his client is taking marketing as a serious factor in his contract negotiations, making a return to New York, whether it be the Yankees or Mets, seem very likely given the seemingly endless amount of marketing opportunities that New York has to offer.
A potential move to Queens still seems unlikely for Cano, as Alderson stated last week that he couldn’t see the Mets signing a player to a nine-figure deal this offseason. The Mets also already have a solid option at second base in Daniel Murphy, further complicating the situation.
