Over the Cavs last seven games, Wade is averaging 17.0 points, 3.3 rebounds and 3.6 assists while shooting 55.3 percent from the floor. However, the Cavaliers announced that Rose would be undergoing treatment on his ankle on November 17, which became a potential breaking point for Rose and his National Basketball Association career. The Cavs insist they'll welcome him back, despite the chemistry they have seemingly developed in his absence.
"This has been a very challenging and hard time for Derrick", Cavaliers general manager Koby Altman said in a statement, via NBA.com. Rose has been communicating with only a scant few people, but his agent, B.J. Armstrong of Wasserman Media Group, and Cavaliers general manager Koby Altman have had a steady and cordial dialogue leading to Rose's return on Monday morning, league sources said.
"He didn't have to, but he did", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said of Rose's message to the team.
After exiling himself for two weeks, Rose re-joined the Cavs on Wednesday and, according to ESPN's Dave McMenamin, explained to his teammates that he was frustrated over his latest injury.
"We will continue to provide him with support and have patience as he rejoins his team-mates and works his way back on to the court".
LeBron has done everything he could for Rose this season, but it has not helped revive Rose's career.
All that's standing in the way of the Cavaliers tying their franchise-record 13-game winning streak is a victory against the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday night. "It's impossible to just, you just don't know", James said.
While Lue didn't disclose the content of Rose's message, he said the team was happy to have him back at the practice facility.
