CHICAGO (AP) Derrick Rose may be cleared to begin activity within a week, and be able to practice shortly thereafter, Chicago Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg said Monday.

The Bulls haven't ruled Rose out for the opening game of the regular season against Cleveland Oct. 27. He had surgery Sept. 30 on a fractured left orbital bone suffered in practice a day earlier.

"Derrick, hopefully in another week, will be able to start getting active again, and then hopefully start practicing shortly thereafter," Hoiberg said.
