The haters of Derrick Rose are going to call this karma for all that big free agency contract talk. The Bulls star will have surgery on Wednesday after having his orbital bone fractured in practice.


The Bulls released this statement to the press:

Bulls Guard Derrick Rose was struck in the face by an elbow during today’s practice. He was taken by the Bulls medical staff to Rush University Medical Center for testing and evaluation which determined he sustained a left orbital fracture. After consultation with several specialists, it has been determined that he will require a surgical procedure, which will take place tomorrow at Rush. After the procedure, a timetable for return to play will be determined.

Bulls head coach Fred Hoiberg reportedly canceled the afternoon practice.
