Knicks’ Derrick Rose was close to walking away from basketball, per report

Derrick Rose’s strange absence from the Knicks on Monday night appears to be over as he returned to the team Tuesday.

He didn’t reveal too much into why he left without notice (can’t even leave a text?), but did say it was a family issue, telling reporters he needed to be with his mother in Chicago.

The rest of the details are filled in with sources close to the situation like a recent report from the New York Daily News. According to the newspaper, Rose was even considering taking a longer break than just the one-game absence against the Pelicans.

Ultimately, Rose left the team Monday to head to Chicago to visit his mother for what he deemed a family crisis. Possibly the only thing wrong with the situation is that Rose failed to tell the Knicks about his plans, and team officials had no explanation for his absence before or during Monday’s game.
