On Tuesday, Rose sustained his billionth injury (rough estimate), a left orbital fracture that occurred during yesterday's practice. According to the Bulls, the fragile player will undergo surgery on Wednesday. Since being named the 2010-2011 MVP, Rose's bones have become tissue paper. He missed the 2012-2013 season with a torn ACL, and spent much of the 2013-2014 season on the bench after tearing the medial meniscus in his right knee. Oh, and he had a meniscectomy on the same knee in February, missing 31 regular-season games in the 2014-2015 season. Now, it's an eye socket injury, endured after the cursed player took an elbow to the face.
