Bulls PG Derrick Rose experiencing double vision with both eyes open 
Thursday October 15th, 2015

Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose said that he has been experiencing double vision when he opens both of his eyes, reports K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune. Rose added that he feels he could play with only one eye open.

Rose sustained an orbital fracture in practice on Sept. 29 and underwent surgery the next day to repair his left eye socket. He was fitted for a mask and was cleared for non-contact activity on Wednesday, just two weeks after his surgery.

The point guard will likely miss the remainder of the preseason and it’s uncertain if he will be ready for Chicago’s home opener against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Oct. 27.

Bulls head coach Fred Hoiberg told reporters Tuesday that Rose was probably “at least a week” away from being able to exert himself.

The 27-year-old has endured several injuries in his career. Over the past four seasons, Rose had various knee injuries that limited his playing time. He missed the entire 2012-13 season and played in just 10 games in 2013-14. The 2011 NBA MVP played in 51 games last season for Chicago, averaging 17.6 points and 4.9 assists per game.
