Bulls rookie sensation/guard/savior/infallible being Derrick Rose missed practice today due toThumbnail image for appleknife.jpg a a self-inflicted injury sustained in bed from a knife he used to slice an apple.

"A sheepish Rose explained why he needed 10 stitches to close a gash under the elbow on his left forearm, a self-inflicted injury sustained in bed from a knife he used to slice an apple.

''Silly accident this morning,'' Rose said, standing before a a large throng of media. ''I went to get a bottle of water, forgot the knife was there, and sat down and sliced my arm.''

Fear not, Bulls fans. Rose is expected to play tomorrow night when the New York Knicks invade the United Center.

Besides wondering about Rose's fruit-eating habits and why he's choosing his bed as the most appropriate apple-slicing locale, we're happy he's OK.
