According to a report from ESPN, Cavaliers point guard Derrick Rose has taken a leave of absence from the team in order to re-evaluate his National Basketball Association future.

Once the league's MVP, Rose's career has been derailed by a litany of lower body injuries that has sapped his historic athleticism and put him in a near-perpetual state of recovery from injury. The team said last week that Rose's ankle will be immobilized for a week and he will undergo extended treatment "over the next two to three weeks".

The report also said Rose hadn't been communicative with many people he's close with, from within and outside the Cavaliers, and there was now concern that he might not return to the league at all.

Rose has missed 11 of 18 games this season, including the previous seven. Winners of six in a row, Cleveland has already had to play the majority of their games without the guard.

It's not the first time Rose has been missing from a team. He admitted the Knicks didn't want him back.

Rose originally suffered the ankle injury on October 20.

Unfortunately, Rose's body has repeatedly failed him in recent years and that has been the case again with an ankle injury that has kept the point guard out of action since November 7. "I'm just trying to figure it out, bro".

Since suffering a torn left ACL in the Chicago Bulls' opening game of the 2012 playoffs, Rose has been plagued with injuries, playing in just 237 out of a possible 412 regular-season games. He signed a veterans minimum contract with the Cavs in the offseason.
