CHICAGO — Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose will have surgery on his left eye after being elbowed in the face.

The Bulls say the 2011 NBA MVP sustained a left orbital fracture on the first day of practice. He is scheduled for surgery on Wednesday, and a timetable for his return will be determined after the operation.

The injury is the latest in a long line for Rose and the last thing the Bulls needed with a new coach in Fred Hoiberg.

Rose missed all of the 2012-13 season after tearing his left ACL during the first round of the 2012 playoffs, and played only 10 games two years ago after tearing the meniscus in his right knee. He also had a minor procedure on the right knee late last season.

    wow rose is playing with 1 eye and cant see straight. did not play in the preseason but 8 minutes. all his struggles should have been seen. it takes like 3 to 4 weeks to recover from his injury. he actually tries and play through the injury people whine how bad he is playen. he does not play through it people whine that he is soft.
