Derrick Rose says he might have to undergo surgery to remove bone spurs in ankle
According to reports, Derrick Rose may have had the bone spurs before joining the Cavaliers in the offseason.  

DERRICK Rose says he might need surgery in his left ankle to remove a bone spur.

The Cleveland Cavaliers guard is undergoing rehab for the ankle injury but revealed on Friday (Saturday, Manila time) surgery could be necessary.

"I got to go through rehab with trying to get my ankle right," Rose said. "I got a bone spur that I didn't tell anybody [about], but I was just trying to process all that myself."

"It's all about first getting the area to calm down and then strengthening your leg back up again," Rose said. "So, afterwards, we may have to have a procedure. But who knows?"
