Cleveland Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue told reporters today that point guard Derrick Rose will miss at least another two weeks with a sprained/sore left ankle.
Rose has been held out of the past four games due to soreness in his ankle. Lue said earlier this week that Rose may have rushed back from the initial injury he suffered in Milwaukee.
So far, it’s been a struggle for Rose this season, as he’s averaging 14.3 points and 1.7 assists while shooting 45.1 percent from the field and 29.7 percent from three.
The Cavs will continue to start Iman Shumpert in Rose’s place until he’s cleared to return. Cleveland enters their matchup with the Los Angeles Clippers tonight on a three-game winning streak.
