Derrick Rose is in Miami with the Knicks and has been cleared to play, but his status for Tuesday night's game against the Heat is up in the air due to Dennis Smith Jr.

Smith, who was traded to the Detroit Pistons along with a second-round draft pick in exchange for Rose, has not yet completed his physical in Detroit.

Because Smith has yet to complete his physical, NBA rules prohibit Rose from participating in Tuesday morning's shootaround with the Knicks.

If Smith has not completed his physical by the time the Knicks tip off against the Heat on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m., Rose will not be eligible to play.
