    Rose has no troubles with a basketball in his hand. An apple? That's another story entirely...

    Derrick Rose is fearless on the NBA hardcourt, his aggressive drives to the hoop have quickly earned him raves as the league's best rookie.  He might want to exercise a bit more caution at home however.

    The rookie guard confirmed he cut himself at home this morning while slicing an apple in bed.  Rose says he put the knife on his bed and then later rolled over onto the knife, cutting his arm.  He immediately called Bulls trainer Fred Tedeschi who drove Rose to the hospital where he received 10 stitches in his left forearm but is expected to play Tuesday night against the Knicks at the United Center.
