Derrick Rose returns to Cavaliers after leaving team

Share

The Cavs have been very supportive of Rose throughout his time away from the team, but during that stretch without him they've finally gotten things together.

The Cavs will be adding more depth back to the roster soon. A frustrated Rose had left the team on November 22 to contemplate his future, but he's back and working toward a return to the floor. The conversations were described as "positive", and the team said he will report to its Cleveland Clinic Courts training facility.

"This has been a very challenging and hard time for Derrick", general manager Koby Altman said. Rose is still dealing with an ankle injury, but will work to get back on the court.

In seven games this season, Rose is averaging 14.3 points, on 47 percent shooting, to go along with 2.6 rebounds and 1.7 assists. In the meantime, the 29-year-old former All-Star will continue to rehab the troublesome ankle.

"There's still ways to get him the ball", Lue said. "All the players are happy and excited that he's back, as well as the coaches and the front office. So, we're where we want to be right now". Perhaps Rose would best be suited on a team where he can assuredly see solid minutes on a nightly basis.

As Vardon notes, Rose could play alongside Wade with the second unit once Thomas returns. "Not a problem." The Cavs ripped the Bulls to win their 12th straight game.

All he had to do was stay healthy, as that is most likely the main concern that teams have about him. "But just hearing what he had to say and then just seeing how everyone was welcoming him back and was happy he's here".
