Derrick Rose was non-committal when asked if he’d play at all on this Cavs road trip. “They haven’t put no timetable on it yet,” Rose said. “Right now I’ve been getting treatment every day, every morning, and night when we land, on the plane. Just trying to get as much treatment as I can or just trying to be smart about it.”
Cavaliers point guard Derrick Rose (left ankle) will miss his second consecutive game Saturday against the Dallas Mavericks.

Derrick Rose left the Cleveland Cavaliers' 116-97 win over the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday with a sprained left ankle stemming from a hit by Bucks center Greg Monroe that the former MVP said should have been called a flagrant foul. "I think I'm the only person in the league that's not getting a flagrant for that call, bro," Rose said after scoring 12 points in 23 minutes before exiting the game for good with 10:12 remaining in the fourth quarter. "Come on, man. Like, I'm sure I'm the only player, but it is what it is. ... That's a common foul. Wow. Come on."
Rose’s free-agent market value has been damaged by the torn medial meniscus in his left knee. Rose, 28, has had two surgeries on each of his knees and his future as a Knick is murky. Dr. Armin Tehrany, orthopedist surgeon and knee specialist for Manhattan Orthopedic Care, told The Post the latest injury is wear and tear (degenerative cartilage) — not one specific play. In a phone interview, Dr. Tehrany described Rose as being at definite risk for another knee injury because of his “playing style” and genetics. But he believes Rose can return to his former explosiveness.

Derrick Rose saw an eye specialist after Sunday’s game after taking an inadvertent elbow in his left eye from Kristaps Porzingis in the first quarter. It’s the same eye that required surgery to repair a left orbital fracture during training camp in 2015 when Bulls teammate Taj Gibson elbowed him in practice.
Rose said he had trouble seeing during Sunday’s game, but he still was able to score 28 points in the loss to the Warriors. The doctors checked his vision as a precaution and Rose said they told him everything was OK. He said he iced it during the game and throughout the night and Monday to keep the swelling down.
Ian Begley: Derrick Rose will return tonight. He missed four games with an ankle injury. Joakim Noah (hamstring) is out.
Rose is expected to return from a four-game absence Monday. “We did a little half-court scrimmaging where he had to go side to side and he looked pretty good there,’’ Hornacek said. “He didn’t wince or make faces. If he wakes up and hasn’t regressed, he’ll be ready to go.”
Derrick Rose will miss his third straight game due to a sprained ankle against the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday. Kristaps Porzingis, however, is available to play and expected to start after sitting out the Knicks' loss in Washington on Tuesday due to illness.
Al Iannazzone: Derrick Rose is out of walking boot, in sneakers, shooting set shots. Still limping. Hornacek said he was out tonight and probably tomorrow.
Derrick Rose will miss Sunday's game against the Atlanta Hawks because of a sprained left ankle that could keep him out of multiple games for the New York Knicks. The Knicks announced that Rose would be unavailable prior to facing the Hawks. He suffered the injury on Friday night in a win over the Charlotte Hornets.
Ohm Youngmisuk: Derrick Rose has a sprained left ankle and will not return against Charlotte. He underwent X-rays which were negative.
Rose missed his fourth game in the past 10 days Saturday against the Nuggets because of a tight back. During that span, he played only one quarter of another game — at Phoenix on Tuesday. The Knicks want to make sure when Rose finally returns, it’s for good, meaning they won’t rush him back. Rose hasn’t ruled out playing in Tuesday’s home game against the Pacers but wants to be 100 percent. “I hate missing [games] but I have to be smart about it,’’ Rose said before the Knicks’ 127-114 loss. “I want to play consistent games instead of playing one game, aggravating something and missing two games. I want to play consistent games. I don’t want to come back too soon.’’
Ian Begley: Derrick Rose will not play tonight against the Golden State Warriors, according to the Knicks. Rose suffered back spasms on Tuesday vs. PHO.
Ian Begley: Derrick Rose tells reporters in LA that he's playing tonight vs. LAL & there's "nothing wrong" with his back anymore, per @Ramona Shelburne.
Derrick Rose was in a panic at the United Center last week, convinced that his former team had stolen back his "unicorn." For an estimated 10 to 15 minutes following New York's victory over the Bulls, Rose's heavy ball was out of sight — prompting the famously calm point guard to launch on the offensive. "I asked one of the (Bulls) assistant coaches like, 'Man, give me my f---king ball, brah. Like, where is my ball?'"
Armstrong wouldn’t guarantee an injury-free campaign but said Rose’s seriousness toward rehab is never an issue. He also raised the notion Rose’s slithering-to-the-basket, physical game is also a factor in why his return to All-Star level has taken longer than others.
“You can do everything you can and things happen,’’ Armstrong said. “One thing I’ll never question is his preparation for the season. It certainly won’t be for a lack of trying. “His style of playing is different and that hasn’t been discussed. That’s what makes him unique. I can’t recall another guard who plays like that. You might see some running backs who are very physical running backs. That’s going to have an impact on how he comes back compared to a running back who uses speed and quickness.’’
But everything changed once that news came out. Rose's image took its first big hit as his undermanned teammates plugged along without him. The Bulls' front office, which continued to stand behind him publicly, wondered privately whether Rose was making his own decisions or listening instead to the advice of his brother Reggie and his agent, former Bulls guard B.J. Armstrong. For one of the first times in Rose's storybook career, he didn't have the full support of everyone around him. For an affable 24-year-old who was always trying to please everybody, he now realized that wasn't possible. Rose chose to sit out the entire season. His teammates stood behind him at every turn. So did the front office and coaches, even if some didn't agree with the decision. Rose made his choice and never wavered, but his relationship with the team and city he loves so much was never quite the same.
“I think it would have been as devastating as Derrick Rose's ACL injury [in 2012] was to adidas,” one industry marketing source told The Vertical. “Nike has the brand equity to survive injuries to their signature athletes. When injuries happen to star players at competing brands, consumers often assume it's the fault of the sneaker brand the athlete is wearing. Yet, with Nike, consumers never blame the product.”
Mike McGraw: Hoiberg says Rose is getting MRI on left elbow today; status for Sat vs Detroit unknown. #Bulls
In other injury related news, Bulls point guard Derrick Rose is "50-50" to play against the Raptors as he continues to recover from a left groin strain. "Jimmy's good to go, he had a good shootaround," Hoiberg said. "He had a really good day [Sunday]. Derrick didn't participate in anything [Sunday], went through most of shootaround. He's still a little bit tight. We'll go back, get a treatment at the hotel, warm him up tonight and make a gametime decision. We'll say right now [Rose is] 50-50 [to play]."
Nick Friedell: Fred Hoiberg says Derrick Rose tweaked his groin late in 4th quarter last night. He is out tonight vs. Heat. es.pn/1XjjEmp
Vincent Goodwill: Rose, asked if he’ll ease his way back into action: "Hell no, I’m try to go all out."
Vincent Goodwill: Nothing official but it seems like Rose will give it a go vs Miami. Hoiberg said if he plays he'll be on quick spurts to build stamina

K.C. Johnson: Hoiberg:"Nobody wants to be out there more than Derrick does. He cannot explode off that leg. Working him out, you can see it. He’s limping"
Nick Friedell: Derrick Rose will not play against the Atlanta Hawks on Friday night because of ongoing issues with hamstring tendonitis. Bulls head coach Fred Hoiberg says that as of now Rose does not need an MRI, but he does not sound confident that Rose would play Saturday against the Portland Trail Blazers. "Still too early to tell," Hoiberg said before Friday's game. "But if he feels like he did today then no. But who knows? Hopefully hell make some improvement overnight and get treatment [Saturday], see how he feels."
Vincent Goodwill: I asked Derrick Rose if someone told him before the season if he would take 69-70 games, he said: "Hell yeah. With everything I’ve been through..." Rose is on pace to play 70 games this season, his most since the 2010-11 season.
Nick Friedell: Derrick Rose reiterated that the season is 'a process.' He knew there would be games where he would sit if nagging injuries persisted. Difference between Rose then vs now is that each game is no longer life& death. He's much more cautious with his body given injury history.
Nick Friedell: Bulls PR sends out release saying it is a lower back and right hamstring issue for Derrick Rose. He will not return tonight.
KC Johnson: Rose said he still lacks explosiveness and feels twinge with 1st step. No MRI. Not concerned about long-term issues. Gametime decision.
Sam Smith: Rose: "I don’t feel (an MRI) is necessary; I just needed to sit out. If I can play (Thursday) I’m going to play; I’m going to be all right."
Steve Aschburner: Fred Hoiberg anticipates Derrick Rose (R hamstring) will play. Vs. MIL team lite on PGs: J.Bayless (L ankle), G.Vasquez (R ankle). MCW tho.
As long as nothing happens to Derrick Rose between this afternoon and tip-off tonight against Milwaukee, well, the Bulls point guard will be a go after missing the last three games with right hamstring tendinitis and some soreness in the knee. Then again, nothing is ever a sure thing with Rose when it comes to health. “He participated in shootaround today,’’ Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg said Tuesday.
Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose will undergo an MRI on Monday on a sore right knee. Rose missed his third consecutive game on Sunday because of lingering right hamstring soreness, but it was the revelation of knee soreness that came as a surprise prior to Sunday's game against the Toronto Raptors.
Rose tore the ACL in his left knee in April 2012. He tore the medial meniscus in his right knee in November 2013 and had a meniscectomy on the same knee in February 2015. He didn't sound too concerned about the latest knee setback this time around. "I feel good," Rose said. "I feel all right. I just overworked myself. I gotta figure out the days where I'm going to sit. I have to do a little bit better. But the games I have rolling, just tried to give myself a little bit more than I had. And it backfired on me. Tomorrow the MRI. I know everything's going to be fine. But It's more reassurance."
Rose said he thought he would be able to play on Sunday, but woke up with some "discomfort" so the Bulls medical staff decided to play it safe. He said the hamstring "feels good" and is hopeful he will be back on the floor Tuesday night when the Bulls take on the Milwaukee Bucks.
The Bulls point guard missed his second-consecutive game, dealing with tendinitis in a right hamstring that was still experiencing some soreness. It was just the fourth regular-season game Rose has missed since the opening night tip-off, as he sat out two games on the “Circus Trip’’ back in November, on the shelf with a sprained ankle.

Marc Stein: The Mavericks have been frequently linked to a trade pursuit of Indiana’s Myles Turner, but league sources say Dallas had already backed off on its interest even before Turner’s foot injury and with its team defense already flourishing at No. 5 overall in defensive efficiency.
Julius Erving: Those of us who played in the NBA in the 1980s definitely played a role in what the league has become today. And I think that in communicating with the next generation of players, they gave a lot of credit to myself and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. If you start in 1980, and you look at the guys who were the All-Pro players, the MVPs or whatever, there was an acceptance, and there was the crossing-over between the different ethnicities that created a pretty good melting pot.
Julius Erving: I look at the commercial success that happened with myself, with Larry Bird, with Converse and Spalding as an example, and the next wave with Magic Johnson and Michael Jordan. It didn’t just happen. There were shoulders we were standing on. There was Bill Russell, who’s been a dear friend for many, many years. Oscar Robertson, Jerry West, and even the lesser-celebrated guys like Walt Bellamy, Lou Hudson, Pete Maravich. We were just trying to kind of give them credit and understand their struggle. They were always taking commercial flights. Before that, I mean, there were guys taking trains and buses. It is so much different now.
Former basketball star Yao Ming on Monday invited staunch Beijing critic Enes Kanter Freedom to visit China after the Boston Celtics player urged athletes to boycott the Winter Olympics in the capital. Kanter has emerged as one of China’s most vocal critics in the sporting world, a rare athlete willing to forgo lucrative endorsements to speak on issues such as Beijing’s treatment of its Uyghur Muslim and Tibetan minorities.
Yao, China’s most famous basketball star and one of its Olympic bid ambassadors, was asked about Kanter’s politics at a press gathering in Beijing on Monday. “I’ve heard of him, but I can’t really judge him because I don’t know him,” the retired Houston Rockets player and current president of the China Basketball Association said. “If there is an opportunity, I would like to invite him to visit China… Then he may have a more comprehensive understanding of us.”
The letter is perhaps the most outspoken the most successful coach in modern college football has ever been regarding politics, though Saban and West have been longtime supporters of Manchin, a Democratic senator in a state that former president Donald Trump won by nearly 40 points in 2020.

Adrian Wojnarowski: Pacers center Myles Turner is expected to be sidelined beyond the February 10 NBA trade deadline, sources tell ESPN. Team says he will be re-examined in two weeks, but teams interested in trading for Turner will have to do due diligence on injury as they weigh offers.
