A spokesman for the team said Rose is expected to address the media either Friday in Indianapolis ahead of Cleveland's road matchup with the Indiana Pacers, or the following day when the team returns home to Quicken Loans Arena to host the visiting Philadelphia 76ers.

Rose's teammates will speak with him on an individual basis in the coming days to check in on him, the source told McMenamin.

LeBron James stated previously that he wanted the best for Rose, and was hopeful his leave wasn't a sign that he was going to retire after 10 seasons.

Rose has missed the last 14 games, including Wednesday's meeting with the Sacramento Kings. Cleveland has reeled off 12-straight victories with veteran Jose Calderon running the point, and All-Star Isaiah Thomas expected to return to the lineup in the coming weeks following his recovery from a hip injury.

In his seven appearances, Rose has averaged 14.3 points, 2.6 rebounds, and 1.7 assists on 47 percent shooting in 26.9 minutes. There's currently no timetable for his return to action.
