Derrick Rose Set To Return Tonight

For the first time in 31 games, Derrick Rose will suit up for the Cavaliers, Joe Vardon of writes. The 29-year-old guard, however, will be on a minute restriction when the team faces off against the Magic.

Head coach Tyronn Lue has said that Rose will come off the bench in his return. In seven early-season starts for the Cavs prior to the bone spur and ankle injury that sidelined him for two months, Rose put up 14.3 points and 1.7 assists per game.

His addition back into the rotation could bump Cedi Osman out of consistent playing time. We also wrote earlier this month that Rose’s return could reduce Dwyane Wade‘s minutes.

Rose’s ankle injury was the latest in a famously long line of health woes. That, of course, contributed to the period of uncertainty in late November when Rose was said to be contemplating his future in basketball.

    As a Bulls fan, here’s what’ll happen next, my Cleveland friends….Rose will be back for approximately 10 games, play really good, and BAM! Rolled ankle…out for another 20 games. Lather, rinse, repeat.

      Difference with the Cavs and Bulls with DRose is with the Cavs he’s a role guy. The Bulls he was there star and played 35-40 mins a game. So when he was hurt it was bad for the bulls.
