Knicks' Derrick Rose: Cleared of assault allegations
Rose (personal) has been cleared of all charges related to the alleged sexual assault case he's been tending to in Los Angeles, Al Iannazzone of Newsday Sports reports.
Rose is not subject to any sort of punishment, which means he should be able to return to the Knicks in short order. Earlier Wednesday, it was reported that Rose isn't expected to play in the Knicks' final two preseason games, although it's yet to be determined whether this verdict changes that sentiment. With that said, Rose will need to get his conditioning in order right off the bat, which will ultimately determine if he's able to see any final preseason action prior to the Oct. 25 regular season opener.
