Rose likely will have to wear a face mask upon his return. History suggests one of the big hurdles in recovery is avoiding another hit in the face. But wearing such a protective mask is almost routine these days in the NBA after facial injuries. Former Bull Richard Hamilton basically adopted the mask for the remainder of his career after breaking his nose in the 2003-04 season. Among players who have worn masks to protect facial injuries in recent seasons are LeBron James, Chris Paul, Russell Westbrook, Kobe Bryant, Kyrie Irving, Jason Terry and Joe Johnson.
