Uh... This is really not good for the Cleveland Cavaliers and LeBron James.
They already waiting for Isaiah Thomas (January?), and now they have to continue without Derrick Rose. After only 7 games, he will not play at least 2-3 weeks and no one knows his timetable.
Last season, Derrick Rose played 64 games for the Knicks, averaging 18 points per game. This season, he has a solid stat line with 14.3 points but with only 1.7 assists and 2.6 rebounds per game.
At this moment, on the point guard position they have Jose Calderon and London Perrantes, but maybe is time for Tyronn Lue to use a small ball lineup.
Dwyane Wade and LeBron James can share minutes as a point guard, and Kyle Korver and JR Smith will get more minutes as starters.
After 3 consecutive wins, they have an easy matchup against the Clippers so they continue this streak.
