Jalen Rose, ESPN analyst:

"All hope is not lost for the Bulls, especially in this series. I do think they'll find a way to win this series. It's the second round where I think now you miss your reigning MVP, and the second round is probably where the season ends."

Doug Collins, 76ers head coach:

"Everybody on our team, in our organization is sick to our stomach what happened to that young guy. He's everything that's right about the NBA. I know he's heartbroken for not being a part of this."

Magic Johnson, ABC analyst:

"It's over for the Bulls. They're going to maybe get by Philly and they will definitely lose the next round. No chance. This is the playoffs."

Jon Barry, ABC analyst:

"I still think they're going to beat Philly. I think they can get out of this series and most likely will face Boston in the second round. I wouldn't be shocked if they beat Boston, because where they take it to Boston is in the interior and their bigs. Chicago, they're not going to win the East without Derrick Rose."

Dwyane Wade, Miami guard

"I said a prayer for him and his family. You never want to see anyone get injured, especially a player of his caliber. Very unfortunate. You hope he does his best to rehab and gets back to being the D-Rose that everyone loves."

Former NBA star Stephon Marbury, via Twitter

"Because of the greed of the NBA another great player goes down in Derrick Rose. Too many games in such a short time. Players need to learn."
