Rose also shot down a reporter's questions that he requested a trade during his time away.

Rose seems to be in better spirits now, but if his ankle doesn't respond to just rehab, I wonder how he'd handle surgery. Rose would likely require an ankle debridement, and recovery time is generally four-to-six weeks according to the American Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Society.

Vaguely deemed an ankle injury, Rose missed the third, fourth, fifth and sixth games of the year before returning for the next five contests. Like I said, coming back here, starting with rehab, that's my first step.

"Just going through his rehab now, trying to get healthy", Lue said.

In Rose's absence, the Cavs have gone 13-1, and they are now in the midst of a 13-game winning streak. Regardless, it's unclear what Rose's role on the team will be once he does return, considering that Isaiah Thomas will reportedly return before the end of the month and will seemingly handle the bulk of the minutes at point guard.

"Am I concerned? No, no".

"It was good", Rose said. That's all I want to do: hoop and win. I'm appreciative, I'm grateful to be on this team and like I said, just trying to take it one day at a time. I don't care about all the stuff that comes with it.

The 29-year-old veteran signed with Cleveland during the offseason, and in seven games this season he is averaging 14.3 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.7 assists per contest.

He thanked his Cleveland teammates and general manager Koby Altman for their support, which he said helped make the decision to come back easier. "He understood. It's hard, especially in my career; it was just hard getting guys to understand me, especially in a front-office position".

"It's all love", Rose said. "I've been wanting that my entire career".
