How the times have changed. If we wanted to find out if a player was returning from injury in say, 2004, there was only a few ways you could figure out. In 2015 if you want to find out if your favorite player is coming back on the court, ignore the beat reporters and just go straight to their ex-girlfriend’s Instagram page:
In the midst of last night’s NCAA Championship Game, Rose’s ex posted this, which more than hinted Derrick would return against the Orlando Magic on Wednesday, likely with a minutes restriction.
Since posting, she made her IG page private, which she might have done out of privacy or if Rose decided to change his mind last second. Either way, there’s no exact way to know if this claim is legitimate. Derrick could have told her or she’s pulling off a diabolical troll job on her ex-man, which I have to admit, would be kind of funny. Although supposedly they’re back together, so who knows.
