However, on Sunday, it was announced that Rose would miss the remainder of the regular season as he undergoes yet another surgery on his knee - the third of his career.
The Knicks are 29-48 after Sunday's 110-94 loss to the Boston Celtics and will miss the playoffs for the fourth straight season.
The 28-year-old point guard is set to become an unrestricted free agent during the upcoming offseason.
This is a developing story.
Since suffering his second knee injury in 2013 Rose has not been able to get back to the skill level he once was at when he won MVP.
In the 2012-13 season opener, Rose tore his ACL and missed the entire year.

Terming their bilateral relationship at a "historic high", Razak said that there was still potential that could be fulfilled. He will also be accompanied by a large business delegation consisting of numerous top companies and businessmen in Malaysia.
Knee injuries have plagued the three-time All-Star and 2010-11 MVP while he was with the Bulls.
Knicks point guard Derrick Rose reportedly came close to getting traded in February. He also went AWOL from the Knicks for one game, reportedly flying home to Chicago without notifying the team.
The inability to stay healthy forced the Bulls to deal Rose to the Knicks during the 2016 draft. The recovery period for his latest injury is estimated at six to eight weeks, per Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.
Rose, who has been out of action since March 27, played well for the Knicks in his first season in NY, averaging 18.0 points and 4.4 assists per game, even if his three-point shooting percentage was down compared to past seasons.
There is a chance he re-signs if his demands are reasonable and NY decides to draft a forward in June, which would likely hinge on their ability to move Carmelo Anthony during the offseason.
