Jeff Hornacek: Rose Will Have to ‘Learn by Fire’


To pick up the portions of the New York Knicks’ offense he missed during his civil trial, Derrick Rose will have to “learn by fire” this weekend, head coach Jeff Hornacek said.

Rose missed five preseason games and seven practices during his civil trial in Los Angeles over the past two weeks. A jury on Wednesday found Rose and his two friends not liable in a civil lawsuit that accused them of gang-raping Rose’s ex-girlfriend when she was incapacitated from drugs or alcohol. I’ll probably overload him with a lot of information and then when he comes in [Saturday for practice with teammates], he’ll try to learn by fire,” Hornacek said Thursday.
