One Man's Injury is Another Man's Lawsuit Print
Thursday, June 13 2013

A longtime Chicago Bulls fan is suing star player Derrick Rose claiming Rose's extended leave due to a serious ACL injury affected the fan's health and well-being.

Matthew Thompson reportedly filed a lawsuit against the Bull's point guard, claiming Rose's lingering injury and year-long absence from the court caused Thompson multiple mental breakdowns and emotional distress. Thompson further alleges that Rose's "negligent behavior" in not returning to the court after being cleared by team doctors caused Thompson's current "obesity issues."

Despite Rose's absence, the Bulls made the 2013 NBA Playoffs.
