(Reuters) – Cleveland Cavaliers guard Derrick Rose could be out for three more weeks as he treats a sprained left ankle, the team said on Friday.
Rose has missed the last five games with the injury which he sustained on Oct. 20. He returned briefly before he was sidelined again.
The former league MVP underwent further tests on Friday and will keep his ankle immobilized in a boot for the next week, the team announced.
Rose was signed by the Cavaliers in the off-season and is averaging 14.3 points per game in seven games played.
