Fred Hoiberg had no timetable for Derrick Rose’s return, after the point guard underwent successful surgery to repair a left orbital fracture Wednesday morning.

As the first-year Bulls coach will be learning, timetables and Rose never get along much anyways.

“Well, he’s still going to be here in practice, he’ll still be learning,’’ Hoiberg said of what he deemed a minor setback compared to what Rose has been through since 2012. “Hopefully it’s an injury that won’t keep him out too long. He’s in great shape. We don’t know how much he’ll be able to do even when he’s in his recovery mode, but he’ll still be here learning.

“So we’ll go as expected, as far as putting our stuff in. We added a few new ones in his absence [Wednesday morning], and again, guys seem to be picking up things very well.’’

Which means the Bulls are again simply moving on without the so-called face of the franchise. They’re basically in midseason form.

“Yeah, again we’ll get a lot of guys a lot of reps at that position,’’ Hoiberg said of possible replacements. “Again, they are guys that have played in this league a long time. You know Aaron [Brooks], E’Twaun [Moore] and Kirk [Hinrich]. Jimmy [Butler] has obviously talked a lot about being a facilitator and being a guy with the ball, seeing some time with the ball in his hands. But there’s a lot of guys that can handle that until Derrick gets healthy.’’
