Rose (ankle) took part in practice Wednesday and should be considered questionable for Thursday's game against the Magic, Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com reports. Rose hasn't taken the floor since early November while dealing with personal matters and an ankle injury, the latter of which being what's currently keeping him on the shelf. Coach Tyronn Lue reportedly "doesn't know" if Rose will be available Thursday, so he should be considered questionable for the contest. That said, with Isaiah Thomas now in the fold, it's unclear what kind of role Rose will have when he does return.
Rose (ankle) will not play on the Cavaliers' current road trip, which ends after Friday's contest against the Pacers, Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com reports. There was some optimism that Rose could return during the team's road trip, but that will not happen. It's unclear at the moment if he's suffered a setback or if he simply won't yet be re-integrated into the rotation.
Rose (ankle) could return during the Cavaliers' upcoming five-game road trip, Cleveland.com reports. Rose has been sidelined since early November with a sprain and bone spurs in his ankle, but he's progressed in his recovery and was running full-court drills at Friday's practice. "I haven't had any pain, I haven't had any setbacks," Rose said. "If anything I've been progressing every day and every week, so I'm on the right track." It's unclear when, exactly, Rose could return to the Cavs' rotation, but coach Ty Lue implied that Rose will take minutes, and perhaps games, away from veteran Dwyane Wade, who the Cavs will attempt to preserve for the playoffs. "I think playing D Wade on a lot of back to backs has been tough for him," Lue said Friday. "Some games where he doesn't feel great, but we don't really have the extra ball handler to sit him. So when D Rose gets back, he'll definitely help with that and help with D Wade getting his rest and being able to feel good on the floor." When Rose returns, he's unlikely to hold enough of a role to warrant fantasy ownership, particularly considering the Cavs will presumably have Isaiah Thomas back on a full-time basis at that point.
Rose (ankle) has progressed to spot shooting but nothing "advanced", K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports. Word arrived in early December that Rose may need surgery to address a bone spur in the event that his rehab program doesn't take. As it stands, he's only done spot-up shooting, which isn't too encouraging. More word on his status should arrive as he continues to progress in his recovery, though there are questions surrounding his role on the team once Isaiah Thomas (hip) returns as well.
Rose (ankle) may need surgery to correct a bone spur in his ankle in the event that his rehab program doesn't take, Dave McMenamin of ESPN reports. According to Rose, "I got to go through rehab with trying to get my ankle right. I got a bone spur that I didn't tell anybody [about], but I was just trying to process all that myself." Rose returned to the Cavaliers on Monday after leaving the team in early November in order to evaluate his future in basketball following his injury, which is apparently more serious than originally revealed. Regardless, it's unclear what Rose's role on the team will be once he does return, considering that Isaiah Thomas will reportedly return before the end of the month and will seemingly handle the bulk of the minutes at point guard. More word on Rose's injury and role will seemingly emerge as his rehab progresses.
