Derrick Rose apologises to Cavs teammates for two-week exile

Rose delivered his remarks on the court at Quicken Loans Arena prior to the team's warmups, McMenamin reports. The former three-time All-Star came into the season hoping to use his potential success with the Cavs as a springboard for a comeback, which is why he signed the veteran's minimum. "Where I am now, it's working for me and for this team".

On Monday morning, the Cleveland Cavaliers officially announced that former MVP Derrick Rose will make his return to the team to begin rehabbing his injured left ankle. "We will continue to provide him with support and have patience as he re-joins his teammates and works his way back on to the court".

"Just going through his rehab now, trying to get healthy", Lue said.

A Cavs spokesman said Rose would likely address the media for the first time since leaving the Cavs on November 22 either on Friday in Indianapolis or Saturday in Cleveland, before the Cavaliers host the Philadelphia 76ers.

Rose has played in only seven of the Cavs' 23 games this season due to an ankle injury, and frustration with his injury led him to a almost two-week self-imposed exile in which he contemplated retirement.

Putin says Russian Federation won't prevent athletes from competing in Pyeongchang - agencies
But athletes who can prove they are clean and have not previously been sanctioned will be allowed to compete. The International Olympic Committee issued such punishment for systematic doping in previous Olympic Games.

The move has paid off, as Wade is averaging 12.9 points per game on 48 percent shooting since taking on a reserve role October 24.

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.

Lue said that the understated Rose was not particularly emotional when he spoke to the team.

"There's still ways to get him the ball", Lue said. "You know he's a quiet guy".

Rose will be at the Cavs' game against the Kings on Wednesday night, and his teammates plan to check in with him individually when the opportunity presents itself in the coming days, according to a team source.
