A statement issued by the Bulls said Rose went under the knife of the Bulls team physician, Dr. Brian Cole, at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago. The operation was deemed a success.
Rose, the 2010-11 NBA MVP, tore the anterior cruciate ligament of his left knee April 28 during a first-round playoff game against the Philadelphia 76ers.
Without him in the lineup, the 76ers eliminated the top-seeded Bulls in six games.
The 23-year-old point guard battled through an injury-plagued season to average 21.8 points and 7.9 assists per game over 39 contests.
