Rose fined, back with Knicks after mystery absence

New York (AFP) - New York Knicks star Derrick Rose has been fined an unspecified amount and is back with the team following his mysterious no-show, the NBA franchise said on Tuesday.

Rose baffled team officials and fans after failing to appear for the Knicks' 110-96 loss to the New Orleans Pelicans at Madison Square Garden on Monday.

"Derrick Rose has rejoined the team and has been fined. He is expected to be in uniform tomorrow in Philadelphia," the Knicks public relations department said on Twitter Tuesday.

Media reports said Rose had returned to his hometown of Chicago, without permission from the team, in order to address a family matter.
