Derrick Rose apologizes to Cavaliers teammates for absence

Derrick Rose apologizes to Cavaliers teammates for absence

Cleveland Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue told reporters that point guard Derrick Rose addressed the team at Wednesday's shootaround after he stepped away from the club November 24 to evaluate whether or not he wanted to continue playing basketball.

The Cavs will be adding more depth back to the roster soon.

"He didn't have to, but he did", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said of Rose's message to the team.

There is no timetable on when he'll play. The former three-time All-Star came into the season hoping to use his potential success with the Cavs as a springboard for a comeback, which is why he signed the veteran's minimum.

Although Rose is averaging 14.3 points per game, the Cavaliers have reeled off their 12-game win streak without him and have performed better when Rose has been off the court.

Air New Zealand says some Boeing 787 Dreamliner flights will have to be cancelled due to problems with the Rolls-Royce engine. The Air New Zealand flights to Tokyo and Argentina were forced to return to Auckland after take-off due to engineering issues.

The 29-year-old Rose has been often injured during his career, suffering two torn ACLs, including missing the entire 2012-13 season because of the injury.

"Everyone's happy that he is back", Lue said. "So, we're where we want to be right now".

"Everyone welcomed him back and is happy he's here", he said, according to the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram's Rick Noland. Perhaps Rose would best be suited on a team where he can assuredly see solid minutes on a nightly basis.

While Cleveland hasn't messed with its starting lineup amid the streak, a change likely is on the horizon, as Isaiah Thomas is expected to return to action towards the middle of the month. Cleveland has won 11 in a row and players have found roles they're comfortable playing in. Rose spent seven seasons with the Bulls.

"Everybody goes through good or bad times", guard Jose Calderon said. "We support him in any way he needs us to support him".
