LeBron James says Derrick Rose doesn't owe team an apology

Significant members of the Cleveland Cavaliers could be returning soon

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Rose flew to Cleveland on Monday and met with the team's front office personnel and will begin rehab on his ankle injury.

Rose has played in only seven of the Cavs' 23 games this season due to an ankle injury, and frustration with his injury led him to a almost two-week self-imposed exile in which he contemplated retirement.

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. It will be interesting to see how Tyronn Lue uses Rose once healthy, the Cavaliers are on a win streak since he went out (which has more to do with LeBron James and defensive effort, not just Rose). Will the Cavs put him back into a key rotation spot and risk messing up what they have going, or do they keep him out and potentially have a very unhappy former MVP on their bench?

Acquired by the Cavs in the free agency season via a one-year deal worth $2.1 million, Rose remains without a definite timetable for his return.

The Cavaliers already have a large group of on-ball players, and the issue of spreading around the basketball won't be made any easier upon Thomas' return. "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".
