Derrick Rose apologises to Cavs teammates for two-week exile

Cleveland Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue told reporters that point guard Derrick Rose addressed the team at Wednesday's shootaround after he stepped away from the club November 24 to evaluate whether or not he wanted to continue playing basketball. Now Rose is back with the team, where he will continue rehab of his ankle.

LeBron has done everything he could for Rose this season, but it has not helped revive Rose's career.

Cavaliers guard Derrick Rose apologized to his teammates at shootaround on Wednesday for his recent absence and referenced frustration with his left ankle injury as the cause for his almost two-week exile, a team source told ESPN. Will the Cavs put him back into a key rotation spot and risk messing up what they have going, or do they keep him out and potentially have a very unhappy former MVP on their bench?

The timetable for Rose's return from injury remains unclear, but there's no rush from a team perspective with the Cavs riding a 12-game winning streak entering Wednesday night's game against the Kings.

The Cavaliers already have a large group of on-ball players, and the issue of spreading around the basketball won't be made any easier upon Thomas' return.

"This has been a very challenging and hard time for Derrick", Cavs general manager Koby Altman said in a release Monday.
