    Derrick Rose is not having a good day.

    Hours after being fined $25,000 by the NBA for comments he made following Monday's frustrating win, the Bulls star was rear-ended on the Kennedy Expressway.

    Rose was in his 2011 Bentley going southbound on Interstate 90 at Ogden Avenue when he was struck by a Saturn, driven by Charles Tratwein of Dundalk, Md., state police said.

    Tratwein was not injured and Rose, who missed a few games last month because of back spasms, refused treatment at the scene. Rose told first responders that he would be checked by his own doctor at a later time.

    Via email, the Bulls told NBC Chicago: "He is fine."

    Tratwein was cited with failure to reduce speed to avoid a crash.

    Rose is the second professional Chicago athlete to have car crashes in the last month. Blackhawks star Jonathon Toews last month crashed his Mercedes Benz into an elevated train post.
