Rose and two friends were cleared Wednesday in a $21.5 million lawsuit that accused them of raping his ex-girlfriend, jurors in Los Angeles needing less than four hours to reach their decision.
Analysis: Hornacek said he did not expect Rose to play in the preseason finale in Brooklyn on Thursday, though did not completely rule it out. Rose and the Knicks open the season Tuesday in Cleveland, when the Cavaliers will get their championship rings - and at the same time, next door at Progressive Field, the Indians will host Game 1 of the World Series.

Analysis: The judge denied the motion on Wednesday in Los Angeles. The case could now go to trial in October, when Knicks training camp gets underway. The woman, a former lover, contends that Rose and two friends drugged her drink at his Beverly Hills home in 2013, and that the next morning they went to her apartment and raped her. Her sexual battery lawsuit seeks $21.5 million in damages.
