A few days ago, Derrick Rose left the Cleveland #Cavaliers to reconsider his basketball career. After numerous injuries, including the career-changing one in 2012, Rose hasn't feel good about his career. He just couldn't stay healthy, which is something that has taken a toll on him. Now, Rose might decide to retire from basketball [VIDEO]and end his career prematurely .

Rose, who won MVP award in 2011, is still trying to figure out what to do about his career. This season, he has appeared in only seven games, which is another reason why he decided to stay away from the team. It seems that he still hasn't brought any decision regarding his career, but the Cavaliers fans are expecting him to come back and help the team win another championship.

Rose keeps in touch with Cleveland

Although the latest update doesn't reveal many details, it gives the fans some hope that Rose will come back. Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported that Derrick Rose is still in contact with the Cleveland Cavaliers, which is definitely a positive thing. Rose has communicated with the front office, but his status is still unknown.

Wojnarowski noted that something similar happened to Rose last season. The point guard played for the New York Knicks and he left the team for a day. Once he returned, he was fined by the team and he apologized. However, this situation is different because Rose has talked to the Cavaliers and they are familiar with his situation.

Head coach Tyronn Lue said he's expecting Derrick Rose to come back, while LeBron James and Dwyane Wade did not put any pressure on the point guard.

They said they only want him to be happy, no matter what he decides to do. In addition, Wade said he was in a similar situation in 2014 when he dealt with injuries. The Cavaliers shooting guard even considered retirement [VIDEO], but he decided to continue his career and see if he can recover and bounce back.

Rose could bounce back

One thing many fans easily forget is that Derrick Rose is only 29. While it's true that he is prone to injuries, it doesn't mean that he is not a good player. As a matter of fact, Rose averaged 14.3 points per game with the Cleveland Cavaliers this season.

The Cavaliers signed Rose to a one-year contract worth $2.1 million. They didn't sign him to play a big role in the regular season, but they will definitely need him in the playoffs. If Rose returns, he could bounce back and win a championship ring with Cleveland. However, his situation is not easy and it will be understandable if he decides to retire. #DerrickRose
