Derrick Rose takes times off again, reportedly mulling retirement

Derrick Rose #1 of the Chicago Bulls lays on the floor aftrer suffering an injury against the Philadelphia 76ers in Game One of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals during the 2012 NBA Playoffs at the United Center

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

A team source tells ESPN: "He's exhausted of being hurt and it's taking a toll on him mentally". Rose has reportedly been uncommunicative with people around the organization over the past several days. So furiously, in fact, that Rose hasn't played in more than 66 games in a single season since 2011-12. With Boston sitting comfortably at the top of the conference with a 4.5 game lead over the Cavs before play Friday, Cleveland losing depth at an already weak position will be another challenge for them to climb.

Lue said Rose still has a role on the team.

The former league MVP signed with the Cavs as a free agent this summer after spending last season with the New York Knicks. "No matter if he comes back, no matter if he doesn't, we want him as an individual, as a man, as a father to be just happy with whatever decision he makes". He was fined by the Knicks and apologized to his teammates when he returned the next day. "But that's the first time I ever felt like that emotionally, and I had to be with my family".

He left the Cavaliers on Wednesday, league sources said. One week ago, the Cavaliers released a formal statement regarding the matter saying that Rose's progress would be reevaluated in two weeks. Hopefully, Rose can find contentment - whether that's continuing his National Basketball Association career or walking away. He missed Cleveland's next four games, but returned October 29 for a loss to the Knicks. "I'm just trying to figure it out, bro. So I'll wear this, for I don't know how long, to see how it helps".

Most recently, Rose suffered an ankle injury earlier this month.
