Derrick Rose returns to Cavaliers after leaving team

Derrick Rose returns to Cavaliers after leaving team

According to ESPN.com, Rose apologized to his Cavaliers teammates Wednesday for his absence.

The former NBA MVP left the team on November 9 after being sidelined with a sprained left ankle.

Late last month, Rose felt the need to evaluate his National Basketball Association future and did so away from the Cavaliers.

Earlier this week, Rose met with members of the Cavaliers about returning to the team.

Several of Rose's teammates, LeBron James included, already had said publicly that Rose did not owe them an apology for the time he missed.

Rose had been in contact with coach Tyronn Lue in recent days.

While Lue didn't disclose the content of Rose's message, he said the team was happy to have him back at the practice facility. "He asked me could he talk to the team before we started shootaround and addressed the team". The Cavs are now riding an 11-game win streak in the 12 games since his absence.

The 29-year-old Rose has been often injured during his career, suffering two torn ACLs, including missing the entire 2012-13 season because of the injury.

That said, the only potential solution would be to either waive Rose or potentially try to deal him before the trade deadline.

"Just going through his rehab now, trying to get healthy", Lue said, adding he was uncertain if Rose continued his rehab during his stint away from the team. He's made seven starts and is averaging 14.3 points and 26.9 minutes with the Cavs, who signed him to a one-year, $2.1 million free-agent contract this summer. "It won't be in the next few games or nothing like that, so just got to see how he takes to treatment".

While Cleveland hasn't messed with its starting lineup amid the streak, a change likely is on the horizon, as Isaiah Thomas is expected to return to action towards the middle of the month.
