New York Knicks guard Derrick Rose registered an inconclusive COVID-19 test which caused him to miss last game against the San Antonio Spurs on March 2.

He’s had multiple negative test results and has been cleared to fly home with the team, according to Steve Popper of Newsday Sports.

About an hour before last game, the Knicks announced that Rose was unavailable to play.

As long as Rose produces negative test results in the next couple days, he will likely be able to play against the Detroit Pistons on March 4.

Since being traded to the Knicks, the 32-year-old is averaging 12.5 points, 2.6 rebounds, 4.9 assists and 1.1 steals per game in 10 games (24.6 minutes per game) with the team.
