The New York Knicks might get Derrick Rose back for their final game before the All-Star break after all.
The Knicks were without the veteran point guard on Tuesday due to the NBA's health and safety protocols as they took a 119-93 road loss to the San Antonio Spurs. Rose was forced to sit out because of an inconclusive COVID-19 test prior to the game.
According to multiple media reports, however, Rose was cleared to fly back to New York with the team after multiple subsequent tests came back negative. Rose would be able to play against his former team on Thursday night when the Knicks host the Pistons if he tests negative again pregame.
