Derrick Rose’s long journey back from yet another injury appears to be at an end. The Cleveland Cavaliers guard said Wednesday that he’s “feeling good” and is likely to play Thursday when the Cavs host the Orlando Magic.
Rose left Cleveland around Thanksgiving to evaluate his future after yet another injury to his ankle. He hasn’t played through the holiday season, and it was an uncertain period where the team simply hadn’t talked to him at all. But after some “positive” contact and indications that he would indeed come back to play, the waiting game took on a new form.
Finally, it seems Rose is healthy enough to play as he spoke to the media on Wednesday and said he’s good to go, both physically and mentally.
