Derrick Rose 'OK' After Vanishing Right Before Game Against Pelicans

The early word out of NY, is that Derrick Rose's unexplained absence Monday night from a demoralizing 110-96 loss to the visiting New Orleans Pelicans was "not a boycott".

Knicks coach Jeff Horancek said last night that the reason for Rose's absence "will become clear", and that the team was so concerned before tip-off they sent someone to personally check on his apartment in New York City. "It's as simple as that".

"Right now we don't have information to give you anything".

Hornacek said the Knicks couldn't provide any further information until the team had heard from Rose himself, but did say he expected the 2011 NBA MVP back at some point. "We just didn't get any defensive stops". He was present at shoot-around, and when Hornacek met with members of the media less than two hours before Monday's game, only one player - rookie forward Mindaugas Kuzminskas - was said to be unavailable.

Rose, who is making $21.3 million in the final year of his contract, went temporarily missing, Jackson has yet to publicly speak on the matter, and the Knicks are losing - a lot. He missed four games earlier in the season due to back spasms but has been relatively healthy outside of the back ailments.

Carmelo Anthony was ejected from the game in the third quarter. The Knicks were trailing 82-63 at that time when Anthony had some choice words while heading to the bench during a Pelicans' timeout. "I put it on myself for not telling the Knicks".

Davis, who scored a game-high 40 points, made both free throws to stretch New Orleans' lead to 87-63, but left the game with a hip injury.
