Derrick Rose returns to Cleveland Cavaliers

On Saturday, LeBron James said he hadn't spoken to Rose since he left the team last month, however, the team would welcome him with open arms.

Although Derrick Rose is a former league MVP and put up mind-boggling numbers at the beginning of his National Basketball Association career, he will probably always be remembered for his durability issues.

And Derrick Rose's ankle problems actually caused him to leave the team and consider retirement, although he is reportedly on the verge of returning.

"This has been a very challenging and hard time for Derrick", Cavs general manager Koby Altman said in a release Monday. "We will continue to provide him with support and have patience as he re-joins his teammates and works his way back on to the court".

Rose, whose career has been dogged by serious knee injuries, initially hurt his ankle on October 20 in Milwaukee.

The three-time defending Eastern Conference champions anticipated using Rose as a backup to Isaiah Thomas.

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". He suffered a left ankle injury seven games into the campaign and despite proving his worth by averaging 14.3 points in 26.9 minutes per contest, he left the team completely to contemplate his next move. It's now possible Isaiah Thomas makes his debut before Rose returns, and the Cavs' opening-night starting point guard nearly certainly won't have the same role he did prior to his injury. Cleveland has won 11 in a row and players have found roles they're comfortable playing in.

All he had to do was stay healthy, as that is most likely the main concern that teams have about him.
