After suffering through a variety of severe knee injuries, including a torn ACL and two medial meniscus tears in his right knee, Rose has remained relatively healthy throughout the 2015-16 season following a fractured orbital bone in the preseason.
A sprained left ankle and right hamstring tendinitis have both bothered Rose at times, but the injuries proved to be fairly minor, all things considered.
When he's been zooming around the floor for the Bulls, Rose has been able to recapture some MVP-caliber magic—especially after the new year.

"The shots are just going down," Rose said, per ESPN.com's Nick Friedell. "My body's been feeling all right, just the shots are going down now. It's paying off. Floaters that I shot earlier in the year, mid-range that I shot earlier in the year, even my three-point shot ... My legs are getting under me a little bit."
Prior to the injury, Rose was averaging 16.7 points and 4.9 assists while shooting 42.6 percent from the field and 28.9 percent from three.
