The Bulls have lifted all playing-time restrictions for Derrick Rose, who logged a season-high 37 minutes last Saturday.
"I think the more he plays, the better he's going to be," Tom Thibodeau said after Thursday's convincing win vs. the Spurs. Rose has missed 11 games this season but he's been healthy and effective over Chicago's past six games, averaging 23.7 points, 3.5 triples, 6.5 assists and 1.0 steals in 32 minutes per game.

Derrick Rose made 9-of-16 from the field and both free throws for 22 points against the Spurs on Thursday with two rebounds, five assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 27 minutes.

He looked awesome today and coach Gregg Popovich pulled out all the stops to try and contain the former MVP. Rose is hitting on all cylinders right now with averages over his last five of 24.8 points, 3.2 boards, 6.4 assists, 0.8 steals and 4.0 triples on 48.9 percent from the field. This is probably going to be the pinnacle of his fantasy value and he is still a guy the Bulls won't hesitate to sit, so he's a sell-high player.

Derrick Rose has been cleared to play as many minutes as he can handle moving forward.

He has averaged 32.8 minutes per game in January which speaks volumes of his health recently. To put that into perspective, Rose averaged 30 minutes during December and just 25.9 in November. While it's hard to ever imagine Rose returning to MVP form, it's good to see him moving in the right direction.

Derrick Rose expressed his frustration with the Bulls' communication during Monday's loss to the Cavaliers.

While Rose was careful to say that his words applied to the entire team, he wasn't remotely happy about the way the Bulls played on Monday. "Everybody has to be on the same page," Rose said. "Until then, we're going to continue to get our ass kicked." The former MVP is averaging 24.0 points, 3.2 rebounds, 6.8 assists, 0.8 steals, 0.6 blocks, and 3.8 three-pointers over his last five games, but remains a sell-high candidate due to his injury risk and possibility of him resting in games later in the season.

Derrick Rose said he's feeling "great" as the Bulls enter the halfway point of the season.

"I think my game is coming along. I’ve been working very hard. I’ve stayed consistent working. I’m really becoming a pro and trying to stay that way.," Rose said. He's coming off back-to-back double-doubles, and he's scored at least 23 points in three straight games. Coach Tom Thibodeau said Rose has been "a lot more aggressive," and specifically cited his defensive improvement. Owners have to be hoping it's the start of a trend.

Derrick Rose had another encouraging game during a 107-99 loss to the Hawks on Saturday with eight boards, 10 assists and four 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

While he did make 8-of-22 from the field, Rose looks really good out there. This was his third impressive game in a row and he's getting some rhythm on offense. Even with all of these positives, the fear of him resting in games later in the season and the possibility of an injury make him a sell-high player.

Derrick Rose looked like the pre-injury version of himself against the Celtics on Friday with 29 points, three rebounds, 10 assists, one steal, two blocks and five 3-pointers.

While this did come against the Celtics, Rose was amazing today. He was getting to the rim, making all the right passes and didn't even turn the ball over. He is suddenly red-hot from beyond the arc with 11 treys in his last two games, which is a complete fluke based on how he couldn't crack 27 percent before Wednesday this season. As nice as it is to see Rose look like his old self, he's still a sell-high player due to how likely he'll be to miss time.

Derrick Rose had his best game of the season on Wednesday, hitting 12-of-22 shots and a season-high six 3-pointers for a season-high 32 points, two rebounds and five assists, but the Bulls still lost to the Wizards.

It was a just a couple days ago we were worried about Rose's knee possibly shutting him down. It could still happen, but he looked great tonight and the only problem is that the Bulls are still losing games. The good news for Rose's owners is that the Bulls are the No. 4 seed in the East, meaning that unlike Carmelo Anthony and Kobe Bryant, Rose is going to have something to play for all season long, as long as his knee holds up.

Derrick Rose (knee) returned to action in the Bulls' 121-114 loss to the Magic on Monday, scoring 18 points on 8-of-15 shooting (including a three) with two rebounds, seven assists and two steals in 30 minutes.

The production is fine but he took a number of bad shots late and doesn't appear to fit in at times. Hopefully the rust will shake off and he'll continue to get his sea legs underneath him, but the injury risk and unsightly fantasy stat-set are very real issues for owners to navigate. He's a sell-high guy after any stretch of significant production.
Jan 13 - 12:19 AM

Derrick Rose is officially in the starting lineup on Monday against the Magic.

He was rested as a precaution on Saturday and apparently everything checked out with the team doctor. Rose has been in some kind of slump and he's been sub-par on defense, but he hasn't been bashful about shooting. Use him like you normally would.

Derrick Rose (knee) is expected to play on Monday against the Magic.

"My knee is fine," Rose said. Rose didn't even need an MRI, instead opting for routine treatment. Anytime Rose is scratched with knee soreness it's going to cause concern, but this was yet another case with Rose where the overreaction was both predictable and unnecessary.
Jan 12 - 11:59 AM

Derrick Rose (knee, hip) will not play against the Bucks on Saturday.

Coach Tom Thibodeau said he has been deactivated due to left knee soreness and he's also going to see the team doctor, which is scary news because that's the ACL knee. It seems like there is a possibility of him being shut down for at least a couple games, so his fantasy owners are going to dislike owning him even more. Kirk Hinrich will play the point while Nikola Mirotic will also likely start. Aaron Brooks will also see an uptick.
Jan 10 - 6:18 PM

Derrick Rose (knee soreness, right hip contusion) is questionable to play against the Bucks on Saturday.

Uh oh. Rose has been one of the most inefficient high-volume players in the NBA, but he's looked healthy with a bit of pep in his step. The questionable tag doesn't really mean much because the Bulls have rested him as probable and played him as questionable. Regardless, he certainly could sit the second half of a back-to-back set. If he's out, Kirk Hinrich will start at point and Nikola Mirotic would likely start at small forward.
Jan 10 - 5:39 PM

Derrick Rose made 8-of-19 from the field for 19 points with four rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes against the Wizards on Friday.

While he did shoot the ball a little better, Rose has two or less assists in three of his last four games. He's not doing much else besides missing shots and there has been nothing to suggest he'll turn it around. His fantasy owners won't get much back in a sell-low attempt, so they should probably hang in there for now.
Jan 10 - 2:00 AM

Derrick Rose made 3-of-15 from the field against the Jazz on Wednesday for seven points with four rebounds, two assists and three turnovers in 30 minutes.

He's now 28-of-110 from the field in his last six, so yeah, he might want to pass the ball more. In his last six games, Rose's usage rate (29.7) is greater than his effective field goal percentage (27.3), which is actually hard to do for that many games. He actually has more misses in his last five games (67) than DeAndre Jordan does all season. It just keeps getting worse for his fantasy owners.
