Knicks, Derrick Rose awaiting authorization to return to play

Derrick Rose has missed the last seven games. It was never confirmed whether the Knicks guard tested positive at Covid-19, but he was back on the pitch shooting before Thursday’s game and on the bench during the Knicks’ 94-93 win over the Magic.

Rose is likely to get cleared to play against the Philadelhia 76ers tonight.
Derrick Rose must obtain clearance from both the team’s medical staff and a league doctor to play on Sunday.
