Derrick Rose returned from a two-game absence to hit 7-of-20 shots and a 3-pointer for 17 points, four rebounds and six assists in Tuesday's win over the Blazers.
Rose missed a couple games with a sprained ankle, and while he didn't set the world on fire tonight, he played fairly well. Hopefully he can stay healthy and get hot between now and Christmas. Pau Gasol added 12 points, 14 rebounds and a block in the win, but hit just 5-of-15 shots. Nov 25 - 12:59 AM

Derrick Rose (left ankle sprain) will start Tuesday vs. Portland, sending Kirk Hinrich back to the bench.

Rose said that there will be no restriction on his minutes tonight, so owners can go ahead and roll him out there. Kirk Hinrich won't be worth using in any format with Rose active, and Jimmy Butler's value and usage rate will take a slight hit.

Derrick Rose (ankle) practiced in full on Monday and is expected to play on Tuesday against the Blazers.

He'll be returning after missing two games on the road trip. Rose is likely very close to 100 percent and he isn't expected to have a a minutes cap. Kirk Hinrich would move back to the bench and E'Twaun Moore would play less. The Bulls only have two games, so he should still be benched in weekly leagues.

Derrick Rose (left ankle sprain) is on track to return on Tuesday vs. Portland.

Rose made it through Sunday's practice in full, and unless he has a setback in advance of Tuesday's game, the expectation is that he'll be back on the floor. Sidelined since the November 16 win over the Pacers, a Tuesday return would mean Rose will have missed just two games.
Nov 23 - 9:02 AM

Derrick Rose (ankle) was a full participant during Sunday's practice, and head coach Fred Hoiberg said that Rose will be re-evaluated on Monday.

Rose is making good progress with his sprained left ankle, and he said that he's shooting to play in Tuesday's game against Portland, which is a realistic timeline given his full participation in Sunday's practice. His return would send Kirk Hinrich back to the bench, and he'd cut into the production of Jimmy Butler. Check back for another update on Rose on Monday.

Derrick Rose (ankle) will not play against the Warriors on Friday night.

He is improving, but the Bulls won't put him out there against Stephen Curry. Rose almost never plays at less than 100 percent these days, so he could miss the final game on the three-game road trip on Tuesday in Portland -- the same court in which he tore his meniscus. Aaron Brooks is also likely out, so we should see a lot of E'Twaun Moore in the second unit. Kirk Hinrich will start and has very little value.
Nov 20 - 2:33 PM

Derrick Rose (ankle) will be a game-time decision for Friday's game against the Warriors.

Rose didn't go through any on court work during Thursday's practice, and head coach Fred Hoiberg said that while Rose will definitely try to play on Friday, he will err on the side of cautious with his point guard. Given Rose's injury history, it would be far from shocking to see him spend another game on the sidelines to make sure that this ankle injury doesn't turn into a lingering issue, and if that's the case, Jimmy Butler would be in for another big game. Stay tuned.

Derrick Rose (ankle) will not play against the Suns on Wednesday.

He said his ankle is really sore, which is a little different from him saying he didn't have swelling earlier today. His fantasy owners shouldn't expect him to play Friday. Kirk Hinrich will start, but Aaron Brooks should have more value. Jimmy Butler could have a big game.
Nov 18 - 9:02 PM

Derrick Rose (ankle) said he has no swelling in his ankle and could play as soon as Friday.

"I would love to play in all three [road games] but really got to pay attention to my body, listen to my body," Rose said. He is "extremely doubtful" to play against the Suns on Wednesday and Kirk Hinrich should be starting. Aaron Brooks will get back int the rotation, but it should be Jimmy Butler handling the offense tonight.
Nov 18 - 2:57 PM

Derrick Rose (sprained left ankle) was limited during shootaround, and will be a game-time decision for Wednesday's game against the Suns.

Head coach Fred Hoiberg called Rose "extremely doubtful" for tonight's game, so we don't expect him to play. Kirk Hinrich will get the start if Rose can't give it a go, with Jimmy Butler and Nikola Mirotic seeing some increased opportunity on offense. Butler would make for an excellent DFS target with a favorable matchup against the Suns.

Derrick Rose (sprained left ankle) is being listed as doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Suns.

While Rose maintains that the ankle injury isn't serious, we'd expect the Bulls to take a cautious approach with their oft-injured point guard, and we don't expect to see him on the floor on Wednesday. With Rose Sidelined, Aaron Brooks will likely draw the start while Jimmy Butler (who owns a usage rate of 30.0 sans Rose) will see a much larger role on offense. Butler will be a very attractive DFS target on Wednesday with a favorable matchup against an uptempo Suns team.
Nov 17 - 5:43 PM

Derrick Rose (left ankle sprain) said his injury isn't serious.

Rose left Monday's game in the fourth quarter, but isn't worried about his ankle injury. "All of it's positive," Rose said. "For what I went through and all I've been through, just me playing and feeling all right after the game. Of course, my ankle's a little bit sore, but I'm just happy nothing's tore or broken. So I'll be all right." Rose was noncommittal about his status for Wednesday, but Aaron Brooks is in line for a minutes bump if Rose misses any time.
Nov 17 - 10:23 AM

Derrick Rose (left ankle sprain) is unsure about his status for Wednesday's game vs. the Suns.

Rose is optimistic that he will be back soon, but he did admit that he is battling soreness and he was spotted limping around the locker room. It's unclear if the Bulls will run any tests on his ankle, but we should have an update after Tuesday's practice. Kirk Hinrich replaced Rose down the stretch and E'Twaun Moore was in the mix as well, but it's also possible that Fred Hoiberg goes back to Aaron Brooks if Rose misses time.
Nov 16 - 11:47 PM

Derrick Rose suffered a left ankle sprain on Monday vs. the Pacers and will not return.

There was about five minutes left in the game when Rose left in what was a very close game, so that is not a good sign. He was limping around the locker room after the game and he was having trouble putting weight on it, but that's all we know at the moment. Kirk Hinrich and E'Twaun Moore played down the stretch, but Aaron Brooks should be in the mix as well if Rose misses time. Rose finished with 23 points, six assists, two boards, two steals and two 3-pointers.
Nov 16 - 10:20 PM

Derrick Rose rolled his ankle in Monday's game vs. the Pacers and went back to the locker room.

There is just a few minutes left in a close game, so it will be interesting if Rose is able to return. We'll have an update momentarily.
