#Cleveland Cavaliers have made some big change to their roster in the last few months. While these changes improved them and made them much more competitive, there is also a negative side as many players they have signed are injury-prone. The reigning Eastern Conference champions have a great roster and they definitely have a good chance of winning a championship next year, however, a lot of things will depend on how healthy they can stay throughout the season.

#Derrick Rose, the former MVP, was one of the biggest additions for the Cavaliers. Rose was named the best NBA player in 2011, but the ACL injury he suffered completely changed his career.

Now, the #Point Guard is hoping he can win a championship ring with the Cavaliers and he wants to be a contributor. However, he suffered another injury [VIDEO]in Cleveland's last game and he will be out for the next one.

Rose's injury will keep him out

The Cavaliers played against the Milwaukee Bucks and they earned their second win this season. Derrick Rose spent 23 minutes on the floor, scoring 12 points on 3-for-4 shooting, but he had to leave the game and he did not return. This happened with 10 minutes left in the fourth quarter while the guard was driving to the rim. After being fouled near the rim, Rose landed awkwardly and reached out for his left ankle.

Per Jason Lloyrd of The Athletic, Cleveland Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue said he doesn't expect Rose to play against the Orlando Magic on Friday.

According to the coach, the injury doesn't look good.

Considering how many games he's missed in his career, this is definitely a bad sign for Derrick Rose. While this is not a season-ending injury, it could keep the point guard out for an extended period and it will most likely negatively impact his performance after he comes back.

At the moment, both Isaiah Thomas and Derrick Rose are out for the Cavaliers, so Jose Calderon will most likely be a starting point guard for the team. It won't be surprising if Lue decided to change a few things, however, so we might even see Dwyane Wade run the floor.

Cleveland without a loss so far

The Cavaliers have done a great job against the Bucks, beating them by 19 points to go up 2-0 in the season.

LeBron James was amazing [VIDEO] once again as he finished the game with 24 points, 5 rebounds and 8 assists. Kevin Love added a double-double with 17 points and 12 rebounds, while Jae Crowder scored 14 efficient points on 6-for-8 shooting.
