Bulls’ Derrick Rose Suffers Facial Fracture, Return Unknown
Sorry Bulls fans, Derrick Rose has suffered a new injury.
The star guard suffered a left orbital fracture during Tuesday's (Sept. 29) practice and will undergo surgery, the team announced. He's scheduled for surgery on Wednesday (Sept. 30), after which a timetable for his return will be determined.
The fracture to his eye socket is the latest in a long line of health issues for the former MVP.
Rose previously tore the ACL in his left knee in April 2012 and missed the 2012-13 season. He then tore the medial meniscus in his right knee in November 2013 and missed the rest of the 2013-14 season. He also had a meniscectomy on his right knee in February and missed 31 regular-season games during the 2014-15 season.
In total, the 26-year-old has played in just 100 regular-season games since the beginning of the lockout-shortened 2011-12 season.
