Cavs’ Rose to miss at least another two weeks

Former Cavalier guard Derrick Rose is excited to be with the Timberwolves and former coach Tom Thibodeau, Jimmy Butler and Taj Gibson.

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.

  1. The real negative I have with the team this year is been the thought process to get a bunch of PGs not able to play their position. I like all three of the PGs we have. Jose has had a wonderful career, Derrick has been a MVP of the league and IT had a MVP like year last year. What’s not to like about each player individually? The problem is, Jose’s career is over and his usage would be to run an offense during blowouts, Derrick is an automatic DNP-Injury and IT may never be the same with the type of hip injury he currently has.

    It’s really tough to win a division let alone a title without a point guard or center. And please don’t say Channing Frye is a center. He’s not. He’s a tall shooting guard.
