Derrick Rose Addressed Cavaliers Players Before Returning to Team

Share

LeBron James has had Derrick Rose's back from the first day he signed with the Cavaliers.

After exiling himself for two weeks, Rose re-joined the Cavs on Wednesday and, according to ESPN's Dave McMenamin, explained to his teammates that he was frustrated over his latest injury.

Rose's comments were brief and delivered to the team on the court before the Cavs readied themselves to face the Sacramento Kings, the source said.

Rose, who has missed 17 of the Cavs' 27 games this season - including the past 13 straight - because of a sprained ankle that he suffered on October 20, has no timetable for when he will return to the court, according to Lue. Tyronn Lue felt the same.

Lue has declined to say how he'll make all the pieces fit, including Rose, who reported to work Monday for the first time since leaving the team November 22 to contemplate his basketball future. "He asked me could he talk to the team before we started shootaround and addressed the team".

"Everyone welcomed him back and is happy he's here", he said, according to the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram's Rick Noland. It's proved to be beneficial for the Cavs as well, as the reigning Eastern Conference champions now are riding a 12-game win streak. He's expected to speak to the media for the first time since his sabbatical commenced. Rose left the team on a self-imposed separation but returned to the Cavs on Monday to resume rehab and treatment.

Although Rose is averaging 14.3 points per game, the Cavaliers have reeled off their 12-game win streak without him and have performed better when Rose has been off the court.

Although Derrick Rose is a former league MVP and put up mind-boggling numbers at the beginning of his National Basketball Association career, he will probably always be remembered for his durability issues.

"There's still ways to get him the ball", Lue said.
