Derrick Rose reportedly expected to meet with Cavs officials, return to team

Derrick Rose

Derrick Rose has dealt with a number of issues both on and off the court over the past couple of years, but the star point guard is apparently not ready to call it a career just yet.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported on Monday that Rose, who voluntarily left the Cavs and has not played since Nov. 9 because of an ankle injury, has flown back to Cleveland and is planning to rejoin the team.

There was talk last month that Rose was getting tired of recovering from injuries and may not want to continue his playing career. Rose is just 29, but he has had multiple knee surgeries that have derailed what once looked like a career with Hall of Fame potential. Recall that Rose also dealt with issues in his personal life last season and went AWOL on the Knicks at one point.

Prior to hurting his ankle, Rose looked like he could play a big role with the Cavs, as he averaged 14.3 points per game in seven contests. Assuming his physical and mental health are where they need to be, the former MVP still has a good chance to make an impact this season.
