Derrick Rose finished with 27 points, six assists, four rebounds and a steal with zero turnovers over 33 minutes in Monday's 109-95 win against the Pistons.
Rose has looked good in two outings since resting his ailing foot, averaging 25.5 points with 5.5 assists and 4.5 rebounds while hitting 22 of his 39 field goal attempts. The point guard is always a possibility to rest down the stretch, especially with the Knicks all but eliminated from the race for a playoff spot. Tread lightly. Mar 27 - 10:51 PM

Derrick Rose (foot) scored 24 points with five rebounds, five assists and one turnover against the Spurs on Saturday.

Considering he had Kawhi Leonard on him quite a bit during this game, this is a positive for Rose. His sore foot that kept him out for the last game looked like a non-issue, as well. There's always risk of Rose resting and he usually doesn't play when he's banged up, so he'll be a tough player to rely on the rest of the way, especially because the Knicks will likely be eliminated from the postseason on Monday. Start him at your own risk with four games next week.
Mar 25 - 11:16 PM

Derrick Rose, Courtney Lee, Mindaugas Kuzminskas, Kristaps Porzingis and Willy Hernangomez will start against the Spurs on Saturday.

It sounds like Rose should be fine, but we'll see how long the he lasts in what is shaping up to be a blowout.
Mar 25 - 8:26 PM

Derrick Rose (foot) is available to play against the Spurs on Saturday.

The "available to play" tag can be a little worrisome, especially when it's on a tanking team and for Derrick Rose. Rose has also said he doesn't care too much about free agency because he saved his money, so that's a whole different story. There are a lot of red flags on Rose, so most owners may just want to steer clear. Ron Baker and Chasson Randle will lose playing time, assuming Rose is a full go.
Mar 25 - 7:06 PM

Derrick Rose said he will test his sore right foot at shootaround to see if he will be able to play Saturday night vs. the Spurs.

Rose, who injured his foot Wednesday night and did not play Thursday vs. the Blazers, is listed as questionable in the game notes. This may come down to a game-time decision. Ron Baker and Chasson Randle would split minutes at point guard if Rose is unable to play.
Mar 25 - 11:53 AM

Derrick Rose (sore right foot) will not play against the Blazers on Thursday.

He suffered the injury late on Wednesday night and was limping after the game. Rose missing a game due to injury is nothing new and he could miss more time as he approaches free agency this summer. The Knicks should get a look at Chasson Randle and Ron Baker tonight, but both are not really great fantasy adds unless Rose is ruled out for multiple games.
Mar 23 - 8:31 PM

X-rays were negative on Derrick Rose's left foot, but he exited the arena after Wednesday's game with a brace and a noticeable limp.

Rose did return after the injury, finishing with 17 points and six assists in 32 minutes, but we're considering him questionable to face the Blazers on Thursday. Rose said that his foot was injured, not his ankle, and his oft-injured knees don't seem to have been affected. If he is forced to miss any time, Ron Baker and Chasson Randle would absorb the PG duties.

Derrick Rose (ankle) returned in the fourth quarter on Wednesday.

He had a sore left ankle and did go to the locker room. Rose appears to be fine, but the Knicks may take it easier on him.
Mar 23 - 12:40 AM

Derrick Rose has a sore ankle and is questionable to return to Wednesday's game against the Jazz.

It looked like he tweaked his ankle on a drive to the basket. Rose stayed in the game and shot the free throws, but he checked out and went to the locker room. While it didn't look bad, the Knicks will probably play it safe with their point guard. If he's out, it'll be Ron Baker and Chasson Randle getting the PG minutes.
Mar 23 - 12:30 AM

Derrick Rose scored 16 points on 7-of-12 shooting vs. the Pacers on Tuesday.

Rose shot an efficient 7-of-12 from the field with four assists, two rebounds and a pair of made free throws in 32 minutes. He's played well for the most part this season, but his outlook is bleak going forward with head coach Jeff Hornacek admitting on Tuesday that reaching the playoffs is all but out of the question. The impending free agent could lose minutes down the stretch as the Knicks may want to see what they have in rookies Chasson Randle and Ron Baker. For now, Rose's owners can look forward to Thursday's dream matchup vs. the Nets -- Brooklyn has given up the most fantasy points to PGs this season.
Mar 14 - 10:22 PM

Derrick Rose survived a hit to the face late in Sunday's game, finishing a loss to the Nets with 17 points (5-of-15 FGs, 7-of-8 FTs), five boards, two assists and two steals.

Rose played 37 minutes without any turnovers, but New York coughed up 120 points defensively and didn't have enough firepower to climb out of a huge early deficit. Any injury is worth monitoring when it comes to Rose, but for now we're leaving him off the injury report prior to Tuesday's home game.
Mar 12 - 8:54 PM

Jeff Horancek said he's encouraging Derrick Rose to shoot more 3-pointers.

"He’s got to take what the defense gives him, maybe look at taking the occasional 3. He’s not a bad shooter. He can make that shot, " said Hornacek. "I don’t want him to go shoot 12 of them. Keep teams honest." Rose has been reluctant to jack up too many 3-point shots, saying he's saving that for the postseason, but with the playoffs unlikely for New York, Rose making the 3-point shot a priority is probably something we won't see this season.
Mar 12 - 4:15 PM

Derrick Rose scored 11 points with two rebounds, two assists, one steal and four turnovers in 27 minutes against the Pistons on Saturday.

He's actually scored the ball somewhat well this month, averaging 21.0 points, 3.8 boards, 5.0 assists and 0.8 steals on 52.9 percent from the field in his previous March games. Rose could be looking to show he still has something left to get one more pay day this summer. He's worth owning as a low-end guy for now.
Mar 11 - 8:20 PM

According to the New York Post, Derrick Rose acknowledged that he's intrigued by the Bucks.

"You hear things but I never take it too seriously,’’ Rose said. "I understand what they have going on here. But I can’t think of it because I"m here. I’ve never been a free agent. This isn’t the worst area for me but I just want to win.’’ Rose's family and 4-year-old son all live in Chicago, and Milwaukee is less than two hours away. Bucks head coach Jason Kidd is one of Rose's idols, so it's not crazy to think that he could give them a look when he hits free agency this summer. To be clear, this is firmly in the rumor stage and there's no word of any interest from the Bucks side of things.
Mar 9 - 10:05 AM

Derrick Rose sank 13-of-16 shots to finish Wednesday's 104-93 loss with 26 points, six assists and one rebound in 39 minutes of action.

Rose didn't get to the free throw line tonight, after going a combined 28-of-32 in his previous three games, and he didn't have any defensive stats. He still found a way to contribute for fantasy owners, especially in points leagues and DFS, and shows no signs of slowing down with 17 games remaining in the regular season.
