No this is not a cruel joke, Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose simply cannot catch a break. Today during the Bulls first practice Rose suffered a left orbital fracture after getting elbowed by a teammate that will require surgery.

Rose was getting blasted by the media earlier today for his “2017 Payday” comments made at the Bulls media day yesterday, plus he’s battling rape allegations from his former girlfriend. Hopefully he bounces back soon because the Bulls are going to need him if they want to succeed this season.
