Cavaliers welcome back Derrick Rose

While it is not yet clear when Rose will be back on the court, he did meet with his teammates prior to their game against the Kings to apologize for his absence.

Rose, who has played in seven games this season, left the Cavaliers on November 22.

Late last month, Rose felt the need to evaluate his National Basketball Association future and did so away from the Cavaliers. Tristan Thompson hasn't returned from his cal injury suffered November 1, but the team thinks he could return this week, according to Cleveland.com.

Rose had been in contact with coach Tyronn Lue in recent days. "He asked me could he talk to the team before we started shootaround and addressed the team".

On Saturday, LeBron James said he hadn't spoken to Rose since he left the team last month, however, the team would welcome him with open arms.

A Cavs spokesman said Rose would likely address the media for the first time since leaving the Cavs on November 22 either on Friday in Indianapolis or Saturday in Cleveland, before the Cavaliers host the Philadelphia 76ers.

Rose is averaging 14.3 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.7 assists in the seven games he has played this season.

The 29-year-old Rose has been often injured during his career, suffering two torn ACLs, including missing the entire 2012-13 season because of the injury.

Although he is back with the team, there's no telling when Rose will actually step back on the court due to the severity of his ankle injury. You want to just get out of the game. Further complicating Rose's return is the fact that Isaiah Thomas is expected to miss a maximum of three more weeks before he makes his season debut after being sidelined with a hip injury. It's now possible Isaiah Thomas makes his debut before Rose returns, and the Cavs' opening-night starting point guard nearly certainly won't have the same role he did prior to his injury.
