Derrick Rose has struggled this season and it has been pretty obvious.
Dealing with an eye injury, Rose can pretty much see in just his right eye which might be the reason for his struggles. The former MVP is averaging just 13.3 points and 6.1 assists per game. His percentages are even worse at 34.3 from the field and just 18.8 percent from behind the three-point line.
But Rose isn’t making excuses and sent a message to his doubters and fans.
Rose is 19-for-70 since returning from sprained ankle. "Once I catch that rhythm, it's going to be scary," Rose said.

Rose has battled injuries ever since he tore his ACL in 2011. This year hasn’t been much different for Rose as he’s dealt with a sprain ankle that caused him to miss two games. If the Bulls want to make a run at the NBA Finals, they are certainly going to need Rose to be healthy and playing better.
