Derrick Rose has met one obstacle he cannot seem to shake. Injuries.
Rose, who has played a total of 100 games in the past three seasons due to a series of knee injuries, sustained a left orbital fracture after being elbowed in the face by a teammate in practice.
Surgery is scheduled to be performed today, but the Bulls are optimistic that Rose will be available for the season opener on October 27th, against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
This latest setback comes amidst a rough week for D-Rose, who has been criticized heavily for speculating about his 2017 free agency and new details surrounding the civil lawsuit filed against him.
Will D-Rose ever return to his former MVP form? Or will injuries claim yet another star athlete in their prime? It's another set back in a promising career for the talented player from Chicago. Fans are hoping that he'll come back strong.
