The report states there is growing uncertainty that Rose will return to the team from both inside and outside the organization.

Derrick Rose's future in the National Basketball Association suddenly looks very much up in the air.

The Cavaliers said that Rose's current absence is excused. But Rose then missed the entire 2012-13 season after tearing his ACL. Battling through injuries, he has only been able to play in seven games for the Cavs.

A source tells Wojnarowski that the myriad of injuries are taking a mental toll on Rose. He then returned to play five games for Cleveland before being immobilized in a walking boot, according to

They will need to find a new agent than the one who negotiated their deals with the Braves, Yahoo Sports reported . Come 2020-21, the Braves will lose half their signing-bonus pool, which is expected to be $4.75 million.

The former league MVP, who has been trying to revive his career with the Cavaliers, left the team earlier this week to handle a personal matter.

Rose signed a one-year deal with the Cavaliers over the offseason after being traded by the Bulls during the 2016 offseason. Rose, unfortunately, has never been anywhere close to the same player since his time in his native Chicago.

Three mostly healthy seasons followed, but Rose tore the meniscus in his left knee late last season with the Knicks, forcing him to undergo knee surgery for the fourth time in his career. It's very clear that Rose won't be at the stadium to play for the Cavs, but the team was already prepared to have Jose Calderon on the court as the starting point guard.

He appeared in 51 games in 2014-15, 66 in 2015-16, his previous year with the Bulls after they drafted him No.1 in 2008.
