Derrick Rose logged seven minutes off the bench in his Minnesota debut on Sunday, scoring two points on 1-of-5 shooting to go with one rebound, two assists and two turnovers.
Rose got into the game for a short three-minute stint during the first quarter and had another brief four-minute stint during the second period of action, but he didn't touch the floor at all during the second half with the game being close. It's unlikely he'll be a major part of the rotation with the Timberwolves, so he can safely remain on the waiver wire in all leagues. Mar 11 - 6:45 PM

Derrick Rose has signed with the Wolves for the remainder of the season.

Coach Tom Thibodeau continues to get the band back together, as Rose joins former teammates Taj Gibson and Jimmy Butler. We'd expect Jeff Teague's job as the starter to be safe based on Rose's play in recent seasons, and there's no guarantee that he takes Tyus Jones' backup job either. Fantasy owners would be wise to leave Rose on the wire. He's expected to be available on Thursday vs. the Celtics.

The Clippers are reportedly interested in signing Derrick Rose.

Tyrone Wallace served as long as he could on two, separate 10-day deals, and the Clippers haven't made much progress on a rest-of-season contract with him so they're now considering other options. Rose won't have much value regardless of where he winds up.

Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor said that Minnesota isn't planning on signing Derrick Rose.

Rose was waived by the Jazz last week, and there were immediate rumors that he might re-join former coach Tom Thibodeau in Minnesota. However, Taylor shot down that idea on Thursday. "If we could find the right person to fit into our team and have some ability to play, get out there on the floor, we are certainly going to look at it," Taylor said. "We kept one slot open all year long just in case that possibility occurred. But as of today we don’t have anybody in mind."

Derrick Rose’s future may not be resolved until after the All-Star break when teams resume practicing, according to Marc Stein of The New York Times.

The Wizards and Timberwolves are two teams that have been mentioned as possible suitors. However, it sounds like we won't have a resolution until next week. Rose can be left on waivers in standard-sized leagues, as it's unlikely he'll make a significant fantasy impact this season regardless of where he lands. Over his last five games in Cleveland, Rose averaged just 3.2 points and 1.4 assists in 11.4 minutes, while shooting just 16.0 percent from the floor.

According to Candace Buckner of the Washington Post, the Wizards are interested in free agent PG Derrick Rose.

Rose was waived by the Jazz on Saturday and this is the second team he's been linked to -- the Wolves are are the other team. Tim Frazier suffered a nasal fracture and Tomas Satoransky is in the concussion protocol, but coach Scott Brooks did say that Satoransky would be all right. Even if Rose was picked up, you'd have to be very desperate to give him a look in fantasy leagues. The Wizards have also been linked to Ramon Sessions.

The Jazz announced that they have waived guard Derrick Rose.

This was expected, as Rose was simply included in the three-team trade as salary filler. The Wolves are reportedly interested in signing Rose. However, Minnesota has two competent PG's already on the roster. Woj tweeted out that the Wizards are expected to "survey the possibility" of signing Rose.
Feb 10 - 1:50 PM

The Jazz will likely be releasing Derrick Rose, according to Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports.

Additionally, Marc Stein of the New York Times says the Wolves could be interested. Rose certainly didn't fit into the system that Utah has established, and obviously Donovan Mitchell thriving in his role means there isn't much of a role anyway. Plus, Dante Exum is getting closer. Someone will likely sign Rose as a backup point guard in the coming days. Maybe he can have value on a team like Phoenix, but leave him on the wire.
Feb 8 - 1:43 PM

Derrick Rose has been traded to the Jazz.

Rose hasn't been productive on the court in a long time and we don't see that changing in Utah. With Donovan Mitchell and Ricky Rubio running the offense in Utah, Rose is not worth picking up in most formats. He's expected to be released so that he can pursue a deal with a playoff team.

Derrick Rose played only five minutes during Wednesday's win vs. the Heat.

Rose was a DNP-CD vs. the Pistons on Tuesday and he's simply not in the Cavs' rotation. The former MVP hasn't been an asset in typical fantasy leagues since the 2011-12 season, and even then he played only 39 games.

Derrick Rose didn't play in the second half of Sunday's game, finishing with two points and no other stats in nine minutes.

Rose was stretching in the tunnel late tonight, so maybe he was held out as a precaution. It's probably unrelated to this decision, but coach Ty Lue was upset with Rose after Friday's game -- he wanted to check Rose into the fourth quarter, but couldn't because the veteran in the locker room using the bathroom. Whether or not his role improves on Tuesday, Rose isn't a fantasy option at this point.
Jan 28 - 10:18 PM

Derrick Rose said coach Ty Lue was mad at him because Lue wanted to put Rose back in the game on Friday, but he couldn't because Rose was in the bathroom.

He said it blows his mind that players can play for so long and not have to take a bathroom break with so much hydration. Rose had arguably his best game of the season with 14 points in 15 minutes and he could get even more playing time while Dwyane Wade (personal) is out. Of course, he'll have to time out his bathroom breaks better.

Derrick Rose ended up with 14 points in just 15 minutes off the bench in Friday's win against the Pacers.

Rose hit 6-of-8 from the floor, and he added 2-of-3 from behind the arc, while chipping in with two rebounds, two assists and a steal while adding a plus-12 rating, best of all bench members. He'll continue to fill in when Isaiah Thomas needs a breather, but Thomas is almost back to full speed and Rose has a propensity for injury. Expect Rose to see rather limited minutes on nights Dwyane Wade is also available, as the team tries to preserve him down the stretch for a postseason run.
Jan 26 - 10:37 PM

Derrick Rose scored nine points with three rebounds, one assist and one block in 13 minutes against the Magic on Thursday.

He played fairly mistake-free ball, but Rose wasn't really running the offense and stood in the corner a bunch. With Isaiah Thomas back in action and the Cavs second unit having some capable scorers, it's going to be really tough for Rose to produce value in even 16-team leagues while the team is healthy.
Jan 18 - 10:35 PM

Derrick Rose (knee) will play off the Cavaliers' bench on Thursday.

The Cavs haven't cited a specific minute-limit for Rose, but we're not expecting him to play much and he's not worth a pickup with Isaiah Thomas healthy. Among other concerns, coach Ty Lue has hinted that Rose's workload will only increase on nights when Dwyane Wade is rested. Daily Slant: Despite Rose's return, Isaiah Thomas is still an elite DFS play on this slate. His price is only going to rise from this point forward and if his 33 minutes on Monday is any indication, he's about ready to be unleashed. The ORL/CLE tilt is probably a slate-changer - if this one stays competitive, both teams play such horrific defense that it has potential to turn into a shootout. Thomas is the top dollar per point play on the CLE side.
