Derrick Rose leaves Cavs, future in National Basketball Association in question

Derrick Rose

Rose's career became one of great promise to one that's been marred by injuries, playing in only 237 out of a possible 412 regular-season games. And it's come to the point where he may be rethinking his career.

Cavaliers guard Derrick Rose has stepped away from the team, ESPN reports.

ESPN - citing anonymous sources - reported that Rose is getting frustrated with his injuries, which is making him reconsider his desire to play in the league.

One team source told ESPN of Rose: "He's exhausted of being hurt and it's taking a toll on him mentally".

Rose was the darling of the National Basketball Association after getting drafted first overall by his hometown Chicago Bulls in 2008. He returned to play in five games but suffered a setback on November 7 and hasn't played since. What is immediately known, though, is that Rose is not expected to play in the next game for the Cavs.

In the past five-plus seasons, he's missed multiple games due to injury every single year.

The Cavaliers signed Rose as a free agent this summer, and he was expected to start in place of Isaiah Thomas, whose hip injury is expected to keep him off the floor until late December or early January. He later went on to win the MVP with the team in 2010-11 season.

Wit that said, if Rose isn't mentally ready to return to the court - or simply doesn't want to - he shouldn't.

We wish Rose nothing but the best as he wrestles with this decision. Cleveland shouldn't factor in at all, even though he is technically under contract.
