Rose has missed the last five games with the injury which he sustained on Oct. 20. He returned briefly before he was sidelined again.

The former league MVP underwent further tests on Friday and will keep his ankle immobilized in a boot for the next week, the team announced.

Rose was signed by the Cavaliers in the off-season and is averaging 14.3 points per game in seven games played.
