Rose will resume rehabilitation at Cleveland Clinic Courts, the Cavs' practice facility in Independence, but no timetable is set for his return to play. James was diplomatic about the Buckeyes not being selected for the college football playoff before his Cleveland Cavaliers faced Chicago on Monday night. He left the team last month amid frustration over the mounting injuries that have derailed his career-most recently an ankle issue that has kept him off the court for most of the season.

His status will be updated as appropriate when he reaches the point of returning to play, the team said.

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.

While Rose's numbers don't look bad on the surface, the Cavaliers have been a significantly better team with him off the floor this season, as he owns a brutal net rating of minus-20.1.

"Whenever he's ready to tell us or whatever, we're ready for that", James said.

Ali Abdullah Saleh killed in UAE controlled area
The fighting that led to Saleh's death also apparently allowed the Houthis gain control of the majority of Yemen's capital Sanaa. The party of Yemen's former president and strongman Ali Abdullah Saleh on Monday confirmed that he has been killed.

"None of us can understand what he's going through".

"I don't know what the organization's stand on that is". Support him in whatever he's going through, and we're going to be a shield for him if he wants to use us. Hopefully he wants to use us.

So far, Rose has missed 16 of the Cavs' 23 games this season, according to ESPN. After earning almost $117 million in National Basketball Association salary in his first nine season, the Chicago product is playing 2017-18 on a one-year, veteran's minimum deal for $2.1 million.

The Cavaliers have said Rose's current absence is different from the Knicks situation because he is not an active player and he communicated with the franchise at the outset of his leave.
