Here's Why Dwyane Wade Is Wary Of Isaiah Thomas' Return To Cavs

Derrick Rose takes 'next step' in return to Cleveland Cavaliers

Derrick Rose takes 'next step' in return to Cleveland Cavaliers

The Cavs have been very supportive of Rose throughout his time away from the team, but during that stretch without him they've finally gotten things together. Rose delivered his remarks on the court at Quicken Loans Arena prior to the team's warmups, McMenamin reports.

The point guard, who has been dealing with a sprained left ankle for much of his first season with Cleveland, returned to the Cavs on Monday to resume rehab and treatment.

Cavaliers guard Derrick Rose apologized to his teammates at shootaround on Wednesday for his recent absence and referenced frustration with his left ankle injury as the cause for his almost two-week exile, a team source told ESPN.

"This has been a very challenging and hard time for Derrick", general manager Koby Altman said. "You want to embrace everybody, just like I wanted to be embraced when I came here". However, with Thomas continuing to recover from a hip injury, Rose was thrust into the starting lineup to start the season and showed flashes of his All-Star form while dealing with the sore ankle. "Everyone welcomed him back and is happy he is here, and that's it".

The 29-year-old former league MVP is averaging 14.3 points on 47.0 percent shooting, 2.6 rebounds and 1.7 assists in seven games - all of which he started - for the Cavs this season. We just hope that we can be his support system.

Rose's minutes could be affected going forward.

Cleveland has surged toward the top of the Eastern Conference after a rough start and have won 11 games in a row. "It's perfectly understandable. All we want is him to be happy and be back and that's great news for us and for him".

All he had to do was stay healthy, as that is most likely the main concern that teams have about him.
