Derrick Rose will meet with team officials to begin comeback process

Dwyane Wade Wants To Stay On Bench When Isaiah Thomas Returns: 'He's Going to Need His Shots'

After a hard start to the season, the veteran chose to give up his starting spot and asked head coach Tyronn Lue to bring him off the bench to work with the second unit.

The move has paid off, as Wade is averaging 12.9 points per game on 48 percent shooting since taking on a reserve role October 24.

Rose, who has an extensive injury history that includes a torn ACL and multiple meniscus surgeries, has not appeared in a game since November 7 due to a sprained ankle.

Derrick Rose is back in Cleveland and ready to help the Cavaliers when he's fully healthy.

The former Miami Heat star, however, wants to make things easier for his coach and insists he wants to continue what he's doing.

"I'm good where I'm at", Wade told Cleveland.com's Joe Vardon.

Rose, 29, left the team the Wednesday before Thanksgiving and had been deliberating whether he wanted to work toward returning from a sprained ankle to rejoin the Cavaliers this season or even continue his National Basketball Association career, league sources have told ESPN.

Earlier this week, LeBron James began the campaign for Dwyane Wade as the No. 1 candidate for Sixth Man of the Year. His play has keyed the great play of Cleveland's bench unit.

"Hopefully it continues", Wade said. "We all are helping this team be better. But I'm just having fun with the guys I'm out there with".

The Cavaliers are back home and will face the Sacramento Kings Wednesday night at The Q.
