The Minnesota Timberwolves announced on Saturday that guard Derrick Rose has undergone successful arthroscopic surgery to remove bone chips from his right elbow and will be out indefinitely.

Minnesota (32-40) had announced two days prior that Rose wouldn't play in the final 11 games of the season as the club was well out of the final playoff spot.

Rose had missed the four games prior to that because of a chip fracture and a loose body in his right elbow. He averaged 18.0 points and 4.3 assists in 51 games (13 starts).

Rose, 30, will be a free agent after this season.

The former No. 1 overall pick had signed a one-year deal with the Timberwolves.
