CHICAGO -- Derrick Rose is expected to rejoin the Bulls on Wednesday as he continues to recover from a fractured left orbital, according to Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg.
"Follow-up [exam] went very well," Hoiberg said after Saturday's practice. "They've advised him to continue to let that sight heal, and they think the best way to do that is for him to stay at home at this time. We plan on him being back Wednesday morning."
The timeline for Rose's return to action hasn't changed. He has been told by doctors to have no basketball activity for two weeks after surgery on Wednesday, but Hoiberg noted that some Bulls coaches will visit Rose in his home on Saturday to help him learn the new portions of Hoiberg's system that have been installed at practice.
"We're going to actually get over there and watch some film with him today because we've added new sets, new things," Hoiberg said. "So we'll get him caught up by a couple coaches going over and seeing him at his house."
Hoiberg still isn't sure exactly when Rose will be able to return to game action, but he's hopeful that his point guard will be ready for the regular-season opener on Oct. 27 against LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers.
"Everything's the same on that [timeline]," Hoiberg said of the initial plan of having Rose sit out two weeks. "After those two weeks he should be able to resume full activity. It's just these two weeks he'll be very inactive. They don't really want him doing much of anything except walking back and forth, just getting a lot of rest. And not doing anything where he can dilate his blood vessels is kind of what we heard."
