Derrick Rose said that he's still adjusting to running the triangle offense.
"Towards the end, when you saw us running it, it was just us trying to get used to it so it's not that foreign," Rose said. "We got a lot of room to make up on that side of the ball too." Rose missed most of training camp due to the civil case against him, so it's understandable that he's not fully comfortable yet in the Knicks offense. He also said that he'd like to run some more pick-and-roll sets, but staying healthy is going to be the main thing for Rose this season. Oct 26 - 9:54 AM

Derrick Rose looked fine in 30 minutes of Tuesday's opening loss to the Cavs, finishing with 17 points, three rebounds, one assist, one block and one 3-pointer.

He hit 7-of-17 shots and looked explosive on a few drives to the rack, but the one assist is a bit of a concern. But if Rose can somehow go for 30 minutes a night and stay healthy, the rest of his game will surely improve. And if 'ifs and buts were candy and nuts...' If you drafted Rose, just hang onto him for the next 10 days and then reevaluate the situation.

Jeff Hornacek said he doesn't plan on imposing a minutes limit on Derrick Rose for the Knicks' regular-season opener against the Cavs on Tuesday.

Rose will open the year as New York's starting point guard, and it'll be interesting to see just how long those troublesome knees hold up. His upside isn't all that high anymore, so he's not worth much more than a late-round selection on draft day.

Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek is pleased with where Derrick Rose's conditioning is despite the point guard missing so much time in the preseason.

"He looked good," Hornacek said. "We did some up and down. His conditioning was good. He’s picking up on the stuff that we’re doing pretty well. It looked good today for being off a couple of weeks." Rose said that he feels "good," but that's what we expect all players to say in this situation. Additionally, the former MVP said that the Knicks will play an "up-tempo type game" and will only use the triangle "on out of-of-bounds plays."

Derrick Rose joined the Knicks at practice on Saturday.

He was cleared of all charges in a civil rape case last week. Rose missed a lot of time during the preseason because of the case and will need some time to get his legs under him again. Brandon Jennings looked solid in the preseason, but the starting job is still Rose's to lose. At best, he's a late-round pick in standard leagues.

Derrick Rose will not suit up for Thursday's game against the Nets.

Rose never had a realistic shot of suiting up for Thursday's game as Jeff Hornacek has said that he wants Rose to go through some practices before he takes the court. He'll likely be the Knicks starting point guard to open the year, but it's tough to justify spending anything more than a late-round selection on the former-MVP.

Derrick Rose is unlikely to play against the Nets on Friday, according to head coach Jeff Hornacek.

Rose's civil trial has concluded, but Hornacek said he'd need to beg to get into Friday's preseason finale. While it doesn't look like we'll see Rose in the preseason, he'll open the regular season as the Knicks starting point guard and is worth a look in the later rounds of standard fantasy drafts.

Derrick Rose has been cleared of all charges in a civil rape case.

The two codefendants were also cleared in this case. The case was in California and Rose still will not make it in time for Thursday's game. Coach Jeff Hornacek said he'd like to see Rose practice before he gets out on the court. For now, it looks like he should be ready to start the season.

Derrick Rose will miss the Knicks final two preseason games due to the civil suit taking place in Los Angeles.

Jeff Hornacek said that he has kept in communication with Rose, and that as long as he can get back to New York for a few practices prior to opening night, he'll be the Knicks' starting point guard when the regular season tips. The jury in Rose's civil suit is expected to reach a verdict by Wednesday, so we'll be watching for details on that. Rose is three knee surgeries and four years removed from his MVP season, and there are higher upside guys you can snag towards the final rounds.

Derrick Rose is still in Los Angeles for jury deliberations, and is doubtful to play in Wednesday's preseason game against the Celtics.

While Rose could perhaps catch a flight to New York once the jury reaches their verdict, it seems unlikely that he'll be on the floor Wednesday night. Additionally, Jeff Hornacek said that if Rose makes it to New York by Thursday, he wouldn't want him on the bench Brooklyn and would rather go over things one-on-one with him at the practice facility on Friday. The civil suit against Rose should reach its conclusion Wednesday, although a punitive damage hearing could keep him in L.A.

Derrick Rose will be the Knicks starting point guard on opening night if he's able to practice before then.

Knicks head coach Jeff Hornacek said he will start Rose if the point guard is able to attend all practices after the preseason. Rose is still dealing with his civil trial in Los Angeles, so it's unclear if he'll be able to live up to Hornacek's expectations. Brandon Jennings will start and see extra minutes if Rose is unable to begin the season as the Knicks starter.
Oct 18 - 1:48 PM

Coach Jeff Hornacek said he is unsure if he'll play Derrick Rose without practicing in two weeks.

Hornacek is talking about games this week, so Rose is still likely for the opener. Due to his civil trial in Los Angeles, the team could send an assistant out to help get him ready to go. If he continues to miss time, there will be more minutes for Brandon Jennings. Rose isn't a strong fantasy target.
Oct 17 - 2:35 PM

The Knicks could send an assistant coach out to Los Angeles in order to train with Derrick Rose.

Rose, who has now missed 10 days and counting as he moves forward in his civil trial, has not had the opportunity to work with his teammates as the preseason has progressed. "Our hope was that he would be done on Monday or Tuesday and maybe be back. It is what it is," Hornacek said. "He’s got to deal with that." Hornacek added that the Knicks aren't sure when Rose will return, but the team could send an assistant if he's going to miss another week of action. The reality is that the Knicks were under a gross misconception with their idea that the trial would be concluded quickly, and the organization continues to look poor in how they've handled this process.
Oct 15 - 4:46 PM

Derrick Rose could be back with the Knicks in time for Wednesday's game at Boston.

The judge presiding over Rose's civil trial wants to wrap things up Tuesday. The Knicks' final preseason game is on Thursday vs. the Nets, so this timeline would give Rose two games to get his legs under him again. He's reportedly been working out for three hours a day and has been studying film of his new team. We'll have an update after the weekend.
Oct 15 - 9:48 AM

Derrick Rose is expected to be out until next week as his trial concludes in Los Angeles.

Rose's trial won't end until next Monday at the earliest, so he won't play against the Celtics on Saturday. "Whenever it’s over, he’ll be here,’’ Knicks head coach Jeff Hornacek said. "I’m hoping that’s sooner than later. We’ll just catch him up on things. We’re trying to stall a little bit in putting some of the things in, so we don’t go over it again when he’s here. But we’re hoping it’s sooner than later." While Rose will start for the Knicks once he returns, he's not much more than a late-round flier in standard fantasy leagues at this point.
