People Can't Get Over The Latest Derrick Rose Injury (Twitter)At this point, not even bubble-wrap can protect Derrick Rose.

News surfaced today that the Chicago Bulls point guard suffered a fractured orbital bone in his face due to an errant elbow at practice, via an official statement from the team.

Bulls Guard Derrick Rose was struck in the face by an elbow during today’s practice. He was taken by the Bulls medical staff to Rush University Medical Center for testing and evaluation which determined he sustained a left orbital fracture. After consultation with several specialists, it has been determined that he will require a surgical procedure, which will take place tomorrow at Rush. After the procedure, a timetable for return to play will be determined.

Just add this latest bump to the number of issues the former NBA MVP has suffered during his seven-year career.

Of course, people went nuts with witty sarcasm and humor on Twitter about this most predictable news:

If there’s just three absolute certainties we know it’s that death, taxes and a Derrick Rose injury will always exist in this life.
