More help could be heading to the Cleveland Cavaliers as soon as tomorrow.
Derrick Rose is set to return to the Cavaliers on Thursday… just in time to play against the Orlando Magic.
Derrick Rose plans to return for the #Cavs vs Magic: "Tomorrow feels like a go. I haven't had any setbacks… Tomorrow I just have to go play my game."

Rose, now 29 years of age, has been out of commission for quite some time due to an ankle injury. In fact, he’s made just seven appearances with the Cavs, averaging 14.3 points on 47.0 percent shooting from the field, 2.6 rebounds, and 1.7 assists.
Rose signed a one-year contract with Cleveland over the summer and began the season as the team’s starting floor general with Isaiah Thomas sidelined. The Cavs could use a little help in their back-court rotation. They’ve lost eight of their last ten games, which includes their previous four outings.
Rose can still put up numbers and the Cavs could use his offensive output, even if it’s not in the starting lineup.
