Bulls guard Derrick Rose to have surgery for broken orbital bone
Tuesday September 29th, 2015

Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose will have surgery Wednesday to repair a broken orbital bone after taking an elbow to the face in Tuesday’s practice, the team announced

The Bulls will determine a timetable for Rose’s return after the surgery is performed. 

Injuries have severely limited Rose over the past four seasons. Various knee issues have prevented Rose from playing more than 51 games in a season since 2010–11. After missing the entire 2012–13 season and playing just 10 games in 2013–14, Rose played 51 games for the Bulls last year and averaged 17.6 points and 4.9 assists per game. 

The injury leaves Aaron Brooks and Kirk Hinrich as the Bulls’ point guards.
