Derrick Rose away from Cavaliers, evaluating his future in basketball

ESPN: Derrick Rose has stepped away from Cavaliers, future with team uncertain

ESPN - citing anonymous sources - reported that Rose is getting frustrated with his injuries, which is making him reconsider his desire to play in the league.

D-Rose is the youngest MVP in National Basketball Association history (22 years, 5 months).

The Cavaliers said that Rose's current absence is excused. After winning the MVP award in 2011, Rose appeared in an average of just 46 games over the next five seasons, missing 262 games since the '11-12 season.

Rose has played in just seven of Cleveland's 18 games this season because of a left ankle injury the point guard sustained while driving to the basket on October 20 in Milwaukee. Rose played four games after that, but has not been on the court since a November 7 win over Milwaukee. He would later win the MVP with the team in 2010-11 season.


Rose, a three-time All-Star, is averaging 14.3 points, 2.6 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 2.7 turnovers in seven games this season. As a teammate put it, Rose has grown increasingly wary of the emotional pitfalls associated with recovering from injury - which is certainly something that the veteran signal caller has unfortunately become accustomed to over the years.

When you consider that Rose has played in just 237 out of a possible 412 regular-season games since tearing his ACL in the 2012 playoffs, it's understandable why Rose might be discouraged. Until Isaiah Thomas is able to return from his hip injury, the Cavaliers will continue to start Jose Calderon at point guard with James and Dwyane Wade handling much of the primary ball handling when each player is on the floor.

One week ago, Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said Rose would be out "at least" the next two weeks because of his ankle injury.
