The Bulls were relieved Monday that a knife mishap involving their prized rookie wasn't more serious. From the Chicago Tribune:

Derrick Rose wore a large gauze bandage on his left forearm and a sheepish smile on his face.

Rose missed Monday's practice after he needed 10 stitches to close a gash suffered when he said he rolled onto a knife while eating an apple in bed.

"It was a silly incident," Rose said. "I was cutting up some food and I laid on a knife getting lazy in bed. I went to go get a bottle of water, came back, forgot the knife was there, then sat down and sliced my arm.

"I panicked when it first happened and called my trainer. It was painful but I should be alright."

Athletic trainer Fred Tedeschi drove Rose to Highland Park Hospital
shortly after 8 a.m., where doctors closed the wound.

"It was a large wound, but they healed it up," Rose said. "I'm good. I
could've practiced today, but they told me to wait until tomorrow. Most
likely, I'm going to play."

Rose said he would have the stitches in his arm for 10-14 days.

"It's just an unfortunate thing, but he'll be fine," coach Vinny Del
Negro
said. "He could've practiced today but more precautionary to let
him relax a little after that incident and get some rest. Thank
goodness it's not serious. It could've been a lot worse."
