According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Cavs guard Derrick Rose flew to Cleveland is morning and is planning to go to the team’s training facility to meet with team brass to begin the process of rejoining the team. Rose left the team on Nov. 24 to begin a self-imposed exile, reportedly due to injuries taking a mental toll on him.

What comes next remains to be seen, as it’s not even clear if Rose is healthy enough to play at the moment. There’s also the question of what his role will will look like with the team having won 11 games in a row heading into Monday, and Isaiah Thomas’ return looming.
The Cavs were expected to give on update on Rose yesterday, but not did not. They are unlikely unable to until they meet with Rose and have a chance to physically evaluate him and talk to him about where his head is at.
