Nov. 25 (UPI) -- After Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose underwent surgery on Monday to repair the torn medial meniscus in his right knee, a savvy nurse took the opportunity to snap a picture with the medicated All Star.

According to the official Bulls website:
“Earlier this morning, Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose underwent successful surgery to repair his previously torn medial meniscus in his right knee. The surgery was performed at Rush University Medical Center by Chicago Bulls head team physician Dr. Brian Cole and team physician Dr. Chuck Bush Joseph. Rose is out for the remainder of the season. He suffered his injury in the third quarter of Chicago’s loss at Portland on Friday night.”
It’s a tough blow for Rose after he missed all of last season following left knee surgery to repair a torn ACL and fought through four separate injuries during the lockout season in 2011-12.
Even so, the opportunistic photo was a hit on Twitter.
