Derrick Rose

From the beginning of the basketball season the Chicago Bulls have let Derrick Rose play with a face mask on. The reason for this face mask is during the Bulls first practice Rose was elbowed in the face by a teammate and caused a left orbital fracture. “I didn’t really see the play to tell you the truth, Jimmy Butler said. “I know he went baseline drift, probably made a pretty athletic play. Hit the corner and then all I saw was him go down” said by teammate Jimmy Butler, who was there at practice.

Derrick Rose is said to possibly wear the mask still even after the fracture has healed the reason he says, “I hate getting my face touched so if I’m feeling it and we’re playing good, you might see it for the rest of my career.”
