LeBron James says Derrick Rose doesn't owe team an apology

He has drawn praise around the league for the new role and seems more than comfortable in it. Meanwhile, the looming return of two-time All-Star point guard Isaiah Thomas is only going to further complicate his role down the line. It's now possible Isaiah Thomas makes his debut before Rose returns, and the Cavs' opening-night starting point guard nearly certainly won't have the same role he did prior to his injury.

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.

The Cavaliers have been rolling as of late, winning 12 straight games and don't look to slow down anytime soon.

"I'm good where I'm at", Wade told Cleveland.com's Joe Vardon. "He asked me could he talk to the team before we started shootaround and addressed the team".

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.

"Starting on Monday, December 4, Cavaliers guard Derrick Rose will resume the treatment and rehabilitation process for his left ankle injury at Cleveland Clinic Courts as the next step in his return to the team".

Lue said he was unaware if Rose kept up his ankle rehab on his own time while he was away from the team. With Isaiah Thomas set to return as early as this month, there's thought that Wade could return to the starting lineup and IT could run the second unit. In all, Lue doesn't see figuring out a lineup mix for Wade, Rose and Thomas as a problem.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have managed to get back to their dominant ways despite being ravaged by injuries early on in the 2017-18 National Basketball Association season.

As most hoops fans know, Rose, now 29 years of age, had been on an excused leave from the Cavs for quite some time.
