More Rumors in this Storyline
Detroit Pistons guard Derrick Rose underwent an MRI recently on his sprained right ankle and it returned negative, league sources told Yahoo Sports.
The Pistons will be cautious in deciding when to let Rose play, but the 2010-11 league MVP is expected to make a full recovery and will be reassessed in a few weeks, sources said. Rose, 31, has been the lone bright spot for the franchise this season, but the team is now considering turning the show over to the younger players, a move that would likely improve its draft position, sources said.

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.

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.”
Rose said he is pain free in his left ankle, which he first sprained Oct. 20 in the second game of the season. “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.”
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.

Nick Friedell: Ty Lue says Tristan Thompson will play tonight vs. Jazz. Lue also says there is no update on Derrick Rose. Rose (ankle) remains out indefinitely.
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.”
A team official, speaking to a pool reporter on background, said the Cavs discovered the spur when images were taken of Rose’s left ankle after he sprained it in game two this season against the Milwaukee Bucks.
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.
