Looking tired, Rose detailed her struggles on Monday, saying her children had also fallen ill and they all quarantined themselves together.
“They say everyone is different, but with me I’ve never felt anything like this before,” Rose said. “I had the flu. It was nothing like the flu.
“That was that time 10. So like I said, I’m coming back slowly. I’m making progress every day and just trying to get back on track. ”
Rose hasn’t played since February 28. He’s missed the last two games before the all-star break and the six games so far in the second half of the season.
The Knicks have announced they are breaking NBA health and safety protocols, but the point guard needs to regain his strength and fitness before he can return to competition.
“He has to go through conditioning and once he’s ready to go, we’ll move on. But he’s been out for a while now, so he’s starting to go up again and we’ll see how it goes, ”Said Knicks coach Tom Thibodeau.
Rose missed her first game on March 2 in San Antonio. He said he fell ill the next day and was not even able to quarantine exercise at home.
Rose has averaged 12.5 points in 10 games, including three starts, since the Knicks acquired him from Detroit on February 8. The move reunited the 2011 NBA MVP with Thibodeau, his coach in Chicago and Minnesota.
The Knicks have gone 7-3 when Rose plays, winning the last three games while in the starting lineup.
“Coming back and playing to the beat and trying to get back to where I was is going to take time,” said Rose, “but every day I’m making the most of all of my days, that’s all I can do. ”
