Derrick Rose steps away from Cavs, evaluating future in National Basketball Association

ESPN: Derrick Rose has stepped away from Cavaliers, future with team uncertain

REPORT | Cleveland Cavaliers G Derrick Rose has left team, pondering NBA future

Cavaliers guard Derrick Rose has become increasingly frustrated by the injury process and is taking personal time to evaluate his future in the National Basketball Association, league sources told ESPN.

Sources tell the two ESPN scribes that "there is growing uncertainty inside and outside the franchise about whether he will return to the team".

Wojnarowski is reporting Rose is "tired of being hurt and it's taking a toll on him mentally". He then returned to play five games for Cleveland before being immobilized in a walking boot, according to NBA.com. The last time he played was a 124-119 win over the Milwaukee Bucks on November 7.

The Rose acquisition was meant to help secure a second unit that struggled mightily last season.

Rose injured his ankle in an October 20 matchup against the Milwaukee Bucks and missed the next four games. ESPN first reported Rose's absence Friday.

The Cavs, however, figure to be just fine without him. His departure this time is different, a Cavs spokesman told the ESPN writers, because he informed the team that he would be stepping away and is not an active player with the ankle injury. "So I'll wear this, for I don't know how long, to see how it helps". So furiously, in fact, that Rose hasn't played in more than 66 games in a single season since 2011-12.

He signed a one-year, $2.1 million contract this summer with Cleveland to be the team's backup point guard but was rushed into a starting role as Isaiah Thomas is out with a hip injury.
