Minnesota Timberwolves point guard Derrick Rose can resume basketball activities in 2-3 weeks.

Rose underwent surgery on his right elbow to remove bone chips on March 23. Bone chips in the elbow are small pieces of bone or cartilage that have come loose and float around in the elbow joint, per RelayHealth.

Rose becomes an unrestricted free agent this summer. The former MVP signed a one-year deal with the Timberwolves last offseason.

In 51 games this season for the Timberwolves, Rose averaged 18.0 points, 2.7 rebounds, and 4.3 assists per contest while shooting 48.2 percent from the field, 37.0 percent from beyond the arc, and 85.6 percent from the free-throw line.

Rose has expressed interest in re-signing with Minnesota. The Chicago native scored a career-high 50 points on Halloween against the Utah Jazz. It was one of the most special performances of the season given Rose has undergone four knee surgeries since becoming the youngest MVP in NBA history back in 2011 with this hometown Chicago Bulls.

Timberwolves starting point guard Jeff Teague has a player option worth $19 million for next season. Tyus Jones becomes a restricted free agent this summer. Minnesota would obviously like to bring Rose, Teague and Jones back, but that might not be possible, although Teague will likely pick up his player option.
