According to Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN New York, New York Knicks point guard Derrick Rose was limited in practice on Friday.
Derrick Rose went down with an ankle injury during last Friday’s win against the Charlotte Hornets, and since then he’s been inactive. The New York Knicks point guard has missed the team’s last three games, and it doesn’t sound like he’ll be suiting up for their next one either.
According to Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN New York, the former MVP is questionable for Saturday’s game against the Cleveland Cavaliers. Rose was limited Friday in practice.
ESPN New York’s Ian Begley tweeted out more bad news. Jeff Hornacek doesn’t seem encouraged by his point guard’s status.
Jeff Hornacek doesn't seem optimistic that Derrick Rose will play tomorrow against Cleveland. Final decision will be made after shootaround.

This is the third time the Knicks have matched up with the Cavs in 2016-17. Both games were blowout losses by a combined 61 points.
The first was the opening night disaster in Cleveland which Rose missed due to his civil trial. The second was so embarrassing that LeBron James decided to use the final moments of the game to try the water bottle challenge on the bench.
The Knicks don’t want to embarrassed for a third straight game. They’ll need Rose’s help to prevent that from happening.
