Derrick Rose confirms he might need ankle surgery

Share

From 2011-12 through 2013-14, Rose appeared in a total of just 49 games. I'm appreciative, I'm grateful to be on this team and like I said, just trying to take it one day at a time.

In Rose's absence, the Cavs have gone 13-1, and they are now in the midst of a 13-game winning streak.

The Cavs star recently informed the team of his decision to rejoin the team, but acknowledged, while talking to the media, that he has a bone spur in his left ankle and that he may need to undergo a procedure if his rehab does not go as planned.

It will be interesting to see how Rose reacts, if surgery becomes the only option. Like I said, coming back here, starting with rehab, that's my first step. "You'll go insane if you try to overthink it or think you're going to have a starting day and it's not there". He said the support of his teammates and Cavs general manager Koby Altman eased his comeback. Now it's just about getting healthy.

"I got to go through rehab with trying to get my ankle right", Rose said, per ESPN.

If Rose works his way back into form, it will only make the hottest team in the National Basketball Association better. The former league MVP was in good spirits at Cleveland's shootaround before the Cavs played the Pacers.

Macron added: "None of the region's problems will be resolved by unilateral decisions or the strongest imposing their will". Riyadh's power play paradoxically led divided Lebanese factions to come together in order to avoid a political breakdown.

Right now, though, the Cavs are banged up.

Rose revealed to reporters that he was dealing with a spur in addition to the sprain, and that the spur may require surgery. Further complicating Rose's return is the fact that is expected to miss a maximum of three more weeks before he makes his season debut after being sidelined with a hip injury.

"Am I concerned? No, no", Rose said. "Not at all. I'll be able to hoop".

He now leads the Falcons with 680 rushing yards and six rushing touchdowns on 152 carries. "He made some big plays", Payton said. Rather than kick the game-tying field-goal and play for overtime, Payton made a decision to go for it.

"I was just figuring things out", he added. I don't care about all the stuff that comes with it. Rose left the Cavs on November 22 and only returned this week, Friday, Dec. 8, 2017.
