New York Knicks guard Derrick Rose is playing through an eye issue after injuring it in Sunday's game against the Golden State Warriors, according to the New York Post's Marc Berman.
Rose said he had blurry vision and a headache in Sunday's loss and saw a specialist after the game when it swelled, according to Berman.
The injury occurred when teammate Kristaps Porzingis elbowed him.
Rose said the injury was related to the orbital fracture he sustained last year that forced him to undergo surgery. Eye specialists recommended he wear protective goggles, Rose said, however he has chosen not to wear them. He was not wearing them in Monday's game against the Orlando Magic.
"They did mention it," Rose said, according to Berman, "but it's no way I'll be out there with some goggles on."
Rose, who has averaged 17.9 points, 4.4 assists and four rebounds in 54 games entering play Monday, scored 28 points in 35 minutes against the Warriors.
