Derrick Rose steps away from Cavaliers, considering basketball future

Derrick Rose steps away from Cavaliers, considering basketball future

Per Adrian Wojnarowski and Dave McMenamin of ESPN, Derrick Rose has been away from the Cleveland Cavaliers "for the better part of a week" and is evaluating his National Basketball Association future.

Rose has not played in a game since November 7 because of an ankle injury that has nagged him all season. However, he's only appeared in seven of the Cavaliers' 18 games this season, sitting out the last seven-straight games due to his sprained ankle.

Cavaliers injured point guard Derrick Rose was excused from the team to express a personal matter and could be considering retirement.

Chiefs sign Darrelle Revis
The Kansas City Chiefs announced on Wednesday that the club has signed free agent cornerback Darrelle Revis . Darrelle Revis is making his National Football League return with a winning club.

The 29-year-old hurt his left ankle on October 20 while facing the Bucks.

Rose has been effective as a starter when healthy this season, but when Isaiah Thomas returns to action from a hip injury, Rose figures to be relegated to a bench role should he decide to continue his career. Rose, unfortunately, has never been anywhere close to the same player since his time in his native Chicago. The team said last week that Rose's ankle will be immobilized for a week and he will undergo extended treatment "over the next two to three weeks".

He was placed in a walking boot last week when the ankle wasn't deemed to be healing sufficiently. The injury cost Rose the entire 2013-13 season, and he then suffered another injury shortly after the 2013-14 season began and then missed the rest of that campaign. ESPN first reported Rose's absence Friday. "So I'll wear this, for I don't know how long, to see how it helps". He signed a veteran's minimum contract with the Cavs in the offseason.
