Derrick Rose apologized to his Cavs teammates for his two-week absence, according to a source. On Friday, however, he spoke with reporters to clarify just how happy he is to be a member of the Cavs. "Trade? No", Rose said. "It's showing me coming here was one of the best decisions I made in my life". If I wanted to leave, I would have left.

"I was just figuring things out", he added. Nobody could've predicted what happened that following April when Rose suffered a career-derailing knee injury during the 2012 NBA Playoffs, and it wasn't until the brand's signing of James Harden in the Summer of 2016 that the three stripes had any sort of presence in the landscape of hoops footwear. Still, in those games he showed flashes of his vast skill and averaged 14.3 points per game.

Whenever Rose does return, he will likely no longer have his spot as the Cavs' starting point guard. Hopefully he approaches the rest of his rehab with similar enthusiasm so he is ready to retake the court soon.

Some have questioned why Rose chose to come back and whether or not it was a financial decision.

It is unclear what Rose's role will be when he gets healthy again.

"Am I concerned? No, no", he said.

"I'll be able to hoop", he explained.

"I'm taking it one day at a time". I don't care about all the stuff that comes with it.

Steelers kicker believes Bengals were intentionally trying to injure him
Iloka found out his suspension was overturned shortly before Wednesday's practice, which he participated in. The Bengals (5-7) host the Bears (3-9) on Sunday. " I didn't think it was warranted ", Roethlisberger said.

But if the 29-year-old Rose gets anywhere close to his career averages (19.4 points, 5.9 assists and 3.7 rebounds) or even his season scoring average (14.3 points), he could see the minutes come back quickly. Every rehab is very crucial. "Going to functions, going to events whenever they throw them and just being a part of it".

Shortly after speaking to reporters, Rose huddled with Altman, who he credits for empathizing with his situation.

"It's all love", Rose said.
