Derrick Rose gets double vision with both eyes open, says he can play with one closed

Bulls Rose Basketball

Derrick Rose, who broke his face, is questionable for the Bulls’ regular-season opener.

Just how is he feeling?

K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune:

Rose trying to play with one eye closed seems like a bad idea. The Bulls should – and probably will – be patient with him.

If Rose isn’t ready by opening night, it sounds like he will be shortly after.

I’d also be shocked if Rose wears a mask the rest of his career, though he did play with Richard Hamilton. So, maybe Rose knows something about the advantages to always donning a mask.
