Brooklyn Nets point guard Jarrett Jack has a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee and will miss the remainder of the season.

Jack was injured Saturday during a victory at Boston and the Nets said Sunday he also has a small medial meniscus tear. Jack will have surgery on a date that has not been determined.

Jack has started all 32 games this season after the Nets bought out Deron Williams over the summer. He has averaged 12.8 points and a team-best 7.4 assists.

Derrick Rose needs MRI

Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose will undergo an MRI test Monday on a sore right knee. Rose sat out Sunday's game against Toronto, the third straight game he has missed, because of lingering right hamstring soreness. The news of his knee soreness was a surprise.

Rose tore the ACL in his left knee in April 2012. He tore the medial meniscus in his right knee in November 2013 and had a meniscectomy on the same knee in February 2015.
