Rose could be seeing double for months, doctors say

Updated: 

Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose is likely to be experiencing double vision for at least another couple of months.

The point guard is still suffering from the problem after suffering a left orbital fracture, and it may last for another couple of months.

"[The doctors] said it could be as long as three months," coach Fred Hoiberg said, via ESPN.

"But [the vision] has continued to improve and that's obviously a positive."

Rose suffered the injury in September during training camp.

The Bulls are off to a 6-3 start, but Rose is averaging a career-low 12.6 points and shooting 35.9 per cent from the field.

Despite his woeful shooting numbers, Rose says he is still adjusting.

"I'm missing a lot of shots where I normally hit," Rose said.

"Floaters or lay-ups I normally hit, but everything else will come. Just getting my legs under me. It's still pre-season for me ... I'm still warming up."
