Bulls’ Derrick Rose says his recovery from a left orbital fracture continues, and he’s feeling more comfortable playing. However, Chicago Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg said he knows his injury might have left him with blurred vision for a few months.

During the team’s first training camp practice on Sept. 29 Rose suffered the injury. But the player acknowledged he’s been dealing with double vision since the surgery Sept. 30.

“(The doctors) said it could be as long as three months,” Hoiberg said. “But (his vision) has continued to improve, and that’s obviously a positive.”

The player is down almost eight points per game from his career average, with an early season average of 12.6 points.

“This is my first time hearing about it,” Rose said of the possible three-month timeline. “But you kind of have that hope in your mind that it gets well a lot quicker. But for this to be seven or eight [weeks] out and still the same way, I can’t do nothing but live with it. Get the most out of every day, keep putting my deposits in and keep working on my game until my eye gets better.

“But I’m loving the way that I’m working out, I’m loving the way that we’re playing. We’re winning games, so that’s the only thing that I’m worried about. Everything else will come.”

Rose explained that after the first game of the season he was playing with one eye closed, but it’s getting easier to play with the mask.

“I’m playing with both of them open now,” Rose said. “But (my vision]) is still blurry when I look certain ways. But that’s part of (the recovery), I guess.”

“I’m missing a lot of shots where I normally hit, floaters or layups I normally hit, but everything else will come. Just getting my legs under me. It’s still preseason for me. … I’m still warming up.”
