Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose was involved in a minor car accident in Chicago, the Associated Press reports.

Illinois police say Rose was headed south on the Kennedy Expressway late this afternoon when his 2011 Bentley was struck from behind by a 2002 Saturn. Rose was not injured in the incident; the other driver was cited for failing to reduce his speed and avoid the crash. The reigning NBA MVP was already having a bad day -- he was also fined $25,000 by the NBA for criticizing officials earlier today.
