One team source told ESPN of Rose: "He's exhausted of being hurt and it's taking a toll on him mentally".

The report also said Rose hadn't been communicative with many people he's close with, from within and outside the Cavaliers, and there was now concern that he might not return to the league at all. The Cavs are now 8-2 in their last 10 games.
