Derrick Rose’s troubled tenure with the Chicago Bulls took a fresh twist on Tuesday when he suffered a facial fracture from an accidental elbow during the team’s first day of practice.

Rose will undergo surgery to repair the left orbital fracture on Wednesday. The Bulls do not have a timetable on his return.

“Derrick took an elbow to the face,” first-year coach Fred Hoiberg told reporters. “He took a good, hard elbow.”

Rose won the league’s MVP of the 2010-2011 campaign but his career has been hindered by two knee surgeries in two years as well as a host of other smaller ailments.

The 26-year-old guard missed the entire 2012-2013 season after tearing his left ACL, then tore the medial meniscus in his right knee in November 2013 and missed the rest of that campaign.

Rose, who missed an extended period of last season due to another knee ailment, also has his problems away from the basketball court.

In August, a civil suit and rape allegation were leveled at Rose stemming from an alleged incident two years ago. Rose denied the charges earlier this week when he showed up for the Bulls media day. “It’s not true. I will be proven innocent,” Rose said. “I feel like I’m on the right track as far as where I want to be at in my life. I feel like when you’re that focused people try to take you down.”

Rose’s popularity also took a hit a year ago when he said he would not rush back from injuries because he was concerned with life after basketball. There are also rumors of strife between Rose and Chicago’s new leading scorer Jimmy Butler. The Bulls parted ways with coach Tom Thibodeau following their second round playoff loss in May but the new era has begun with familiar uncertainty of Rose.

Daniel Theis scored a career-high 22 points, and Boston opened the game with 17 consecutive points while rolling to an easy 133-77 victory over the host Chicago Bulls on Saturday night.

Jaylen Brown scored a team-best 23 points off the bench, and Jayson Tatum made all four 3-point attempts while scoring 18 points as the Celtics won their season-best fifth straight contest. Terry Rozier added 15 points, Kyrie Irving and Semi Ojeleye each scored 13 and Marcus Morris tallied 12 for Boston.

Shaquille Harrison scored a career-best 20 points, Zach LaVine added 11 and Cameron Payne had 10 for the Bulls, who have lost eight of their last nine. The franchise-worst 56-point defeat occurred in Jim Boylen’s third game as coach after replacing the fired Fred Hoiberg.

It also was the Celtics’ largest margin of victory in franchise history.

Boston was 22 of 43 from 3-point range as Brown, Ojeleye and Rozier each knocked down three. The Celtics shot 53.8 percent overall.

Theis collected a season-best 10 rebounds to help Boston record a 54-37 rebounding edge. He had an increased role with Al Horford scratched due to a knee injury.

The Bulls shot 38.3 percent and were 6 of 24 from 3-point range.

Chicago missed its first 11 field-goal attempts while the Celtics were scoring the first 17 points. Morris’ dunk with 6:12 left capped the burst for Boston.

Jabari Parker’s two free throws with 5:42 to play were the Bulls’ first points, and Robin Lopez’s basket 36 seconds later was the team’s first field goal.

The Celtics held a 20-point lead on Gordon Hayward’s 3-pointer with 33.1 seconds left before settling for a 35-17 advantage.

Boston led 43-21 early in the second quarter after Rozier drained a 3-pointer with 9:47 left in the half. LaVine’s three-point play moved Chicago within 48-33 with 6:17 to play, but Marcus Smart knocked down a 3-pointer with nine seconds left to give the Celtics a 64-43 halftime lead.

The assault continued in the third quarter as Boston pushed the lead over 30 for the time when Irving buried a 3-pointer to make it 83-51 with 5:41 left. The margin was 34 two-plus minutes later on Brown’s basket, and the Celtics closed the quarter with a 93-60 lead.

The lead topped 40 for the first time when Brown drained a 3-pointer to make it 109-67 with 8:19 remaining.

Brown also did the honors to push the lead over 50 when he connected on a 3-pointer to make it 125-73 with 3:12 to play.

Boston’s biggest lead was 58 points.

Knee injury sidelines Knicks’ Rose for remainder of season

(The Sports Xchange) – New York Knicks point guard Derrick Rose will miss the rest of the season after tearing the meniscus in his left knee, the team said on Sunday.

The 28-year-old Rose’s latest injury setback will require arthroscopic surgery and will be his fourth surgery to either knee — he tore his left ACL in 2012 and underwent two surgeries on his right meniscus.

Rose, who is set to enter free agency this offseason, averaged 18.0 points, 4.4 assists and 3.8 rebounds over 64 games in his first season with the Knicks.

The Knicks traded for Rose last June in a multi-player deal with the Chicago Bulls. He is in the final year of a five-year, $94 million deal.

Knee injuries have plagued the three-time All-Star and 2010-11 most valuable player. While he was with the Bulls, Rose tore the ACL in his left knee during the 2012 playoffs and missed the entire following season. He then tore the meniscus in his right knee in his first season back from surgery, costing him the final 72 games in 2013-14.

Rose, who has said he would like to return to New York, missed the Knicks’ previous two games with what the team described as soreness and swelling.

The Knicks are 29-48 and will miss the playoffs for the fourth straight season.

(The Sports Xchange) – Chicago Bulls guard Dwyane Wade will miss the remainder of the season with a fractured right elbow, the team announced on Thursday.

Wade underwent an MRI exam after sustaining the injury in the fourth quarter of Wednesday’s 98-91 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies. The results of the MRI showed a sprain in addition to a small fracture in the elbow.

A 12-time All-Star and three-time NBA champion, Wade said he sustained the injury when his elbow was caught awkwardly while battling Zach Randolph and others for a rebound.

The injury comes at a pivotal time for the Bulls (32-36), who reside a game behind the Detroit Pistons (33-35) and Wade’s former team — the Miami Heat (33-35) — for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

Wade, 35, is averaging 18.6 points, 4.5 assists and 3.9 rebounds this season after signing a two-year, $47.5 million deal over the summer.

In 855 regular-season games with the Heat, Wade averaged 23.7 points and shot 48.8 percent. He averaged 19 points in 74 games last season after missing a combined 48 contests due to various injuries the previous two seasons.
