Jon Krawczynski: Derrick Rose and Jeff Teague both list…

More on Derrick Rose Injury

Christopher Hine: Robert Covington questionable for tomorrow's game because of right ankle soreness. Jeff Teague upgraded to questionable from his usual doubtful. Derrick Rose still doubtful. Maybe there's a chance the Wolves get Teague back tomorrow.
Timberwolves guard Derrick Rose left Friday night’s game in overtime against the Hawks with a sprained right ankle. He didn’t return. Rose had already done plenty of damage in the game, finishing with 25 points and nine assists. Rose was held out on Dec. 23 against the Thunder, but that was due to a sore left ankle, so for better or worse, it’s a different ankle. Rose will be re-evaluated on Saturday, which is a scheduled off-day for the team.

The Timberwolves are signing guard Derrick Rose for the rest of the season, a source confirmed to the Star Tribune. ESPN first reported the news Thursday. Rose, 29, figures to give the Wolves scoring off the bench as they try to make a push for their first playoff berth since 2004. Minnesota has been shorthanded since guard Jimmy Butler was injured last month.
Chris Fedor: #Cavs Derrick Rose is a go for tonight. Rose will come off the bench. He will be on a minutes restriction.
Dave McMenamin: The Cavs say Derrick Rose is probable tonight. Iman Shumpert is still out.
Derrick Rose could return to the court for the Cavaliers during this five-game road trip, and coach Tyronn Lue spelled out Friday how he would fit into the rotation. Rose, who hasn't played since Nov. 7 because of a sprained left ankle and bone spurs, will take minutes and even games away from Dwyane Wade in an effort to preserve Wade for the postseason.
Lue said Wade is on board with his plan for Rose to take some of his time. "I talked to him already," Lue said. "(Wade is) 50-years old, so, sometimes you just don't have it. But with all the guys being out, just don't have the luxury right now. So we talked about it. He understands and he's for it."
Derrick Rose rejoined the Cavaliers on Dec. 4 with no timetable for a return from his left ankle injury, but he wants his fans to know that he is “not depressed,” is improving physically and still loves basketball. “Be patient. I’m good. I’m just taking my time,” Rose said. “You don’t have to worry about me. I’m not depressed. I’m good. A lot of people think I’m depressed because of what I’m going through. It’s the total opposite. I learned from my mistakes three or four years ago when I put myself into a shell. And now that I am in this position, it’s only right that I learn from the best. I’m staying with my team, staying with my family, communicating and just being open.”
Anything you can share that LeBron James offered to you supportwise? Derrick Rose: No. No. He didn’t have to say anything. It’s all about me coming in and them knowing I want to be a part of the team too. I think they know I want to play in games too. I want to be in the heat of the moment too. It’s all about taking my time and just being smart about it. Did you come close to retiring? Derrick Rose: No. No. That’s stupid. I don’t want to even talk about that. But I’m just happy that LeBron understood.
Do you have any idea about when you’ll return to action? Derrick Rose: No. It’s really no rush. It’s really about rehabbing my ankle. I’m happy that the rehab is taking care of my problem. Every day or every week I am pressing to something different. It’s good. Do you see a light at the end of the tunnel? Derrick Rose: I think so. Like I said, it’s all about me taking my time. I can’t think about a due date or is this going to be the day. It’s about me making the most of my days, getting treatment and staying atop everything so I can return as soon as possible.
Noah Coslov: From BJ Armstrong with us @SiriusXMNBA on Derrick Rose: "It has been a process...he had to evaluate where he was in his life. He took time to digest everything." - On surgery: "I don't know what he needs right now, but he had a severe ankle sprain."
The same team official speaking on background said if Rose needs surgery, it would be after the season. While the Cavs have not given a timetable for Rose to resume playing, the issues caused by the spur are related to pain tolerance, the team official said.
ESPN Cleveland: Windhorst: With Derrick Rose's bone spur, typically, again typically, you can play through it but it will be very painful and there will be an adjustment period to learn how to play with the pain or he has surgery. #Cavs
Rose declined to answer how close he was to retirement during his nearly two-week absence from the Cavs, nor would he disclose his whereabouts during that time. He was adamant, however, that the reported $80 million remaining on his Adidas contract, which he was in jeopardy of losing should he have decided to walk away from the NBA for good, was not his motivating factor in his return. "Man, I don't care about -- not to be rude -- I don't care about no f---ing money," Rose said. "It's not about that. I've saved up enough money. It's not about that. If I wanted to leave, I would have left. Like I said, coming back here, starting with rehab, that's my first step. Keeping it simple and just giving my team support and then I'll see what I see off the court."
Cavaliers guard Derrick Rose apologized to his teammates at shootaround on Wednesday for his recent absence and referenced frustration with his left ankle injury as the cause for his nearly two-week exile, a team source told ESPN.
Rose's comments were brief and delivered to the team on the court before the Cavs readied themselves to face the Sacramento Kings, the source said. Several of Rose's teammates, LeBron James included, already had said publicly that Rose did not owe them an apology for the time he missed. However, the three-time All-Star took it upon himself to clear the air.
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. "Just going through his rehab now, trying to get healthy," Lue said. "It won't be in the next few games or nothing like that, so just got to see how he takes to treatment."
There's currently no timetable for his comeback. The nagging ankle injury first occurred on Oct. 20 and it's been plaguing him since. Before he left the team on Nov. 22, Rose was in a walking boot, hoping that would help the recovery. While he's been sidelined, the Cavaliers have surged, winning 12 straight games after blowing out his old team Monday night.
Derrick Rose is interested in returning to the Cavaliers and the team would have him back, but there was no determination as of Sunday afternoon as to when Rose would be back at work. A league source told cleveland.com that the timing of Rose's formal return to Cleveland Clinic Courts -- the Cavs' headquarters -- was still being determined. The team probably won't have any more to say until Rose shows up and Rose's agent, B.J. Armstrong, hasn't returned a call or text to cleveland.com since his client disappeared from the Cavs on Nov. 22.
LeBron James says the Cavs players aren't pushing Derrick Rose for an answer regarding his future. They want him to do what's best for he and his family. But LeBron acknowledged that he hasn't spoken to Rose since before he decided to get away from the team and clear his mind.
He left the Cavaliers on Wednesday, league sources said. Rose's increasing frustration with injuries is causing him to question his desire to continue playing, league sources said. The mental toll from a series of significant injuries that have diminished the production of the youngest NBA Most Valuable Player in history have played a part in the personal soul-searching on Rose's future, league sources said.
KC Johnson: Re Derrick Rose: Talked to several people close to him and they're unsure what happens next. What's surprising is Rose played fairly well last season and was in such good place mentally when Bulls faced Cavaliers during preseason/early in season.
Cavaliers guard Derrick Rose has become increasingly frustrated by the injury process and is taking personal time to evaluate his future in the NBA, league sources told ESPN. Rose has not been with the team for the better part of a week, sources told ESPN, and it is unclear when the 2011 league MVP will return. Rose has missed 11 of the Cavs' 18 games this season, including the last seven because of a sprained left ankle.
Dave McMenamin: Derrick Rose will miss Monday's game against the Knicks because of his left ankle injury, Ty Lue said. Iman Shumpert will continue to start in his place.
Rose missed his second consecutive game and sixth this season Saturday night against the Dallas Mavericks at American Airlines Center and said before shootaround there is no timetable for his return. Iman Shumpert again started in his place. “I haven’t heard anything right now, just day by day, try and get the swelling down, try and get mobility back in my ankle,” Rose said. “Took some steps back with I think just playing on it,” Rose said. “Just trying to play through it, not trying to lose my conditioning and the swelling came back into it. Just gotta wait for the ligament to calm down.”
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."
Cleveland Cavaliers guard Derrick Rose will miss Thursday's game against the Houston Rockets because of continuing discomfort in his left ankle, multiple sources told ESPN. The Cavs will start Iman Shumpert in Rose's place, sources said.
Houston marks the start of a four-game road trip for the Cavs (5-6) followed by games against the Dallas Mavericks, New York Knicks and Charlotte Hornets. Rose's status for the Mavs game is still undetermined, sources said.
Mary Schmitt Boyer/Jodie Valade: Derrick Rose WILL play tonight. Ty Lue said around 28 minutes for him. #Cavs
Cavaliers point guard Derrick Rose (sprained left ankle) will miss his fourth consecutive game and Iman Shumpert will take his place in the starting lineup against the Pelicans, coach Tyronn Lue said.
Chris Fedor: #Cavs Derrick Rose called his ankle injury a "mild sprain" and didn't have wrap/brace on it pregame.
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 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.

Bryn Forbes to decline option with Bucks

Milwaukee Bucks guard Bryn Forbes is declining his player option for the 2021-22 season and will become an unrestricted free agent, sources told ESPN on Tuesday. Forbes played a significant role off the bench as the Bucks delivered the franchise’s first NBA championship in 50 years. He had his most efficient NBA season in several offensive categories, including 3-point percentage and true shooting percentage. Forbes, 28, was fourth in the NBA in 3-point shooting (45.2%) — and third best among players with 200-plus attempts. Forbes averaged 12.2 points on 48% 3-point shooting in February when starting guard Jrue Holiday was sidelined.
Davis suffered a knee sprain in Game 3 but played through the pain in Game 4; however, he took a hard fall in Game 4 and suffered a groin strain. From that moment on, the balance of the firepower tilted towards Phoenix, who ensued to blow out the Lakers in the final games of the series. Though it’ll never be known how things would’ve transpired with a healthy Davis, Metta World Peace believes the Lakers would’ve advanced when discussing his thoughts on the Bucks-Suns matchup and Giannis Antetokounmpo being a great player, via Chris Sheridan of BasketballNews.com: “Now imagine, Giannis, one of the greatest players in the league, doesn’t really have to go up against the greatest team, then you would say Giannis was going to win. Because the Lakers got hurt. The Lakers were going to beat Phoenix before Anthony Davis got hurt.”
The Dallas Mavericks are on the verge of hiring Igor Kokoskov to join Jason Kidd’s coaching staff, sources confirmed to ESPN. Kokoskov, whose two decades of NBA experience includes a one-season stint as the Phoenix Suns’ head coach, has a strong relationship with Mavs superstar Luka Doncic stemming from his time coaching the Slovenian national team. Kokoskov coached Slovenia for two years, culminating with the EuroBasket 2017 title, when Doncic and Goran Dragic led the nation to its first championship in that event.

Ahead of the 2021 NBA draft, projected top overall pick Cade Cunningham has signed a multiyear footwear and apparel endorsement deal with Nike. After a COVID-19-impacted market found a majority of last season’s rookies playing out the 2020-21 season without a sneaker deal, brands are now returning to aggressively sign top players heading into this week’s draft. Nike had its eyes set on Cunningham, who starred at Nike-sponsored Oklahoma State University and has long had an affinity for the brand. “More than anything, they show that athletes are more than just athletes,” Cunningham told ESPN. “They really put the right message out for people to see. That was important to me. … I felt like it was a perfect match for me.”
