Derrick Rose left Monday’s game against the Pacers after rolling his ankle in the second half.

Before the injury, Rose was in the midst of one of his best games of the season. He had 23 points on 9-18 shooting, including 2-2 from 3. He also had six assists.

Rose said he’s still seeing double after undergoing surgery to repair a fractured left orbital last month.

The Bulls are calling the injury a sprain, though coach Fred Hoiberg said they aren’t sure how serious the injury is. He added that Rose was limping around the locker room.

Rose said the injury was “nothing big.”

“Just a regular ankle sprain,” Rose said. “Just throbbing a little bit, nothing out of the norm. Have some ice on it a little bit.”

The Bulls beat the Pacers 96-95.
