Derrick Rose misses practice with knee soreness

Telling you, Rose will never be the same.


Derrick Rose misses Team USA practice due to knee soreness

Quote:
Knee soreness kept Derrick Rose out of practice Tuesday, making it the third straight day he has not played any basketball. And that left Team USA officials wondering whether Rose will be capable of handling the rigorous World Cup schedule.
Quote:
Rose is unlikely to start, a team source told SheridanHoops.com. Kyrie Irving could move into the starting five after playing exceptionally well in a sixth man role Saturday night against Brazil, and the federation was expecting Rose to be able to contribute off the bench.

But if Rose’s knees remain sore – officially, the team said he was held out for “precautionary reasons – and he does not play, the makeup of the final roster will be much more uncertain than it appeared it would be when this week began. If Rose cannot handle the workload of playing three games in three nights and five games in six nights when pool play begins in Bilbao, Spain, the roster would effectively be reduced to 11 1/2 players.

Several of the players who were benched or saw very limited minutes against Brazil were expected to get much more playing time Wednesday. So for Gordon Hayward, DeMar DeRozan, Chandler Parsons, Kyle Korver, Damian Lillard and Andre Drummond, it will be the closest thing to a tryout any of them have experienced since they played Pee-Wee ball.

Well he probably hasn't put this much pressure on his knees since being cleared to play.

I hope it's just a temporary thing.

Well here we go again.....

I did say he shouldn't have been all gun ho in the media and wanting to show everyone who shat on him off.

He needs to slowly transition back to his old self, if that's eveen possible. Otherwise these injuries are going to continue to pile up every time he touches a ball to the point when there are physical limitation like what happened with Roy.


I just hope he stops leting his ego in the way, for the sake of ever seeing his former mvp self or at least not physically impair himself for the rest of his life

NBA TV is currently showing some kind of "Team USA - Hoops for Troops" show, and when they announced Derrick Rose he hobbled out with his knees all wrapped up.

Didn't Rose just recently say that he was going to prove all of his doubters wrong? Looks like he spoke to soon.

so have you. It's way too soon to say this is anything more than soreness from being off for a year and jumping into playing so quickly.
