Rose will likely miss the remainder of the preseason as he recovers from the orbital fracture he sustained in practice. Rose underwent surgery on Sept. 30, and will wear a protective face mask upon his return.
Bulls head coach Fred Hoiberg told reporters Tuesday that Rose was probably “at least a week” away from being able to exert himself.
“He’s still getting a little bit of blurred vision, so I feel it’s best for him to watch the game in the back,” Hoiberg said. “But I know he’s excited to be here and be with the guys in the locker room.”
Rose is also doubtful for Chicago’s regular-season opener against the Cavaliers at the United Center in Chicago on Oct. 27 at 8 p.m. ET.
