Derrick Rose (soreness) returned during a 113-90 loss to the Hawks on Wednesday, scoring 14 points with five rebounds, three assists, one steal, two turnovers and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes.
The Bulls were down in the locker room and are clinging to a playoff spot right now. "Hopefully this break gives us a little time to get away from it," Rose said. "We got 30 games left and we got to decide whether we want to play or not." Rose has said some odd things this year and this is one of them. He might rest in more games going forward, especially with the Bulls not playing well. Feb 10 - 11:45 PM

Derrick Rose (soreness) will play Wednesday vs. the Hawks, as expected.

Rose sat out Monday's loss to the Hornets with general "soreness," but he was never in any real danger of missing tonight's game vs. Atlanta. Rose has posted an elite usage rate of 33.0 sans Jimmy Butler (knee), so go ahead and get him active. Kirk Hinrich will return to the bench with Rose back in the starting lineup, and there will be less minutes available for Aaron Brooks.

Derrick Rose (soreness) is expected to play Wednesday vs. Atlanta.

He's not on the team's injury report, and only missed Monday's game due to "soreness," so he should be out there. Rose owns a usage rate of 33.0 sans Jimmy Butler, so he's going to be a major part of everything Chicago does over the next 3-4 weeks with Butler (knee) on the sidelines. Kirk Hinrich will head back to the bench with Rose active.
Feb 9 - 5:09 PM

Derrick Rose will not play on Monday against the Hornets due to "just soreness overall."

He is hopeful to play on Wednesday against the Hornets. Rose played 34.0 minutes per game in his last two while taking a combined 47 shots in those two losses. The Bulls will start Kirk Hinrich and E'Twaun Moore in the backcourt while there will be plenty of shots to go around.
Feb 8 - 6:19 PM

Fred Hoiberg wants Derrick Rose to play "with pace and his push" moving forward.

With Jimmy Butler (knee) likely out through the All-Star break, Rose's usage rate figures to climb in the upward direction. Rose has been playing better over his last six games, averaging 19.8 points, 5.8 rebounds, 6.7 assists and 1.0 steals on 42.9 percent shooting. He's better in DFS and points formats than standard leagues because Rose doesn't hit threes, steal the ball or block any shots.
Feb 8 - 9:00 AM

Derrick Rose handed out a season-high 10 assists against the Wolves on Saturday during a 112-105 loss, adding 18 points, five rebounds and one steal.

He has been horrible in back-to-back sets and made just 6-of-20 from the field tonight. Rose is going to be really busy and could be an option in DFS while Jimmy Butler (knee) is out, but he doesn't get a big bump in standard leagues.
Feb 6 - 11:59 PM

Derrick Rose scored 30 points with nine rebounds, eight assists, one steal and two turnovers in 35 minutes against the Nuggets on Friday during a 115-110 loss.

He was very busy, making 13-of-27 from the field with his 37.1 usage rate in the second half. If Jimmy Butler (knee) misses time, we'll be seeing a ton of Rose in the offense. His upside still isn't high because of low defensive stats and treys, but he'll likely be better for DFS.
Feb 6 - 12:57 AM

Derrick Rose scored 20 points on 10-of-17 shooting Sunday, to go with five rebounds, four assists and three turnovers through 33 minutes of action.

Rose has actually worked his way into a late-round evaluation over the past two weeks with averages of 18.0 points, 3.2 assists and just 1.5 turnovers per game on 45.5 percent shooting from the field. He’s finally beginning to concede touches to Jimmy Butler, which is why his turnovers are down and the shooting percentages are up, so hopefully that trend continues.
Jan 31 - 6:08 PM

Derrick Rose (back, hamstring) played 29 minutes against the Lakers on Thursday with 16 points, seven rebounds, five assists, one steal and one turnover.

He looked healthy and made some smart decisions in this easy win. Of course, this comes with a grain of salt because of the matchup against the Lakers. Rose's hamstring issue could pop up again, so his loyal fantasy owners will have to keep their eyes peeled for his status on the injury report.
Jan 29 - 1:38 AM

Derrick Rose (hamstring, back) will play against the Lakers on Thursday.

Bulls head coach Fred Hoibert said Rose will be ready to go on Thursday night, so it looks like his hamstring and back injuries won't derail him. Rose is averaging 18.4 points, 2.6 rebounds, 2.8 assists, and 0.8 three-pointers in his last five games and is safe to slot back into fantasy lineups.
Jan 28 - 2:00 PM

Derrick Rose (hamstring, back) is probable to face the Lakers on Thursday.

He did some non-contact work on Tuesday and it sounds like he's OK. Rose has dealt with his hamstring issue before this season, so this probable status isn't quite as rock solid as others. His owners will want to make sure he's still good to go for shootaround.
Jan 27 - 8:43 PM

Derrick Rose (hamstring, back) was limited to non-contact work during Tuesday's practice, and his status for Thursday's game vs. the Lakers is currently up in the air.

Rose is still sore after tweaking his lower back and right hamstring during Monday's loss to the Heat, and there's a chance the Bulls exercise a bit of caution and hold Rose out on Thursday with a matchup against the lowly Lakers. If Rose can't play, Aaron Brooks would likely start with Kirk Hinrich (quad) and E'Twuan Moore (hamstring) hurting, and he'd be someone to consider as a punt play in DFS. Jimmy Butler would also see his a major uptick in his usage rate.
Jan 26 - 2:21 PM

Derrick Rose (right hamstring, lower back) will be re-evaluated on Tuesday morning.

He landed awkwardly during the second quarter and did not return for the second half of Monday's game vs. the Heat. Rose missed three games earlier in the season because of a hamstring issue in the same leg, so we would be surprised if he didn't miss any time. Aaron Brooks is the only healthy point guard on the roster and will benefit if Rose misses time.
Jan 25 - 10:35 PM

Derrick Rose tweaked his lower back and his right hamstring on Monday vs. the Heat and will not return.

He missed three games earlier in the season due to the same hamstring, and considering his back has now flared up on him he is likely looking at some time on the sidelines. Aaron Brooks is the only healthy point guard left on the roster and is worth a speculative add in deeper leagues. The Bulls will have an update on Rose after the game.
Jan 25 - 9:23 PM

Derrick Rose shot just 5-of-21 from the field on Saturday vs. the Cavaliers, finishing with 12 points, four boards, four assists and one block in 35 minutes.

The shooting percentage was rough, but to his credit he did play solid defense on Kyrie Irving. Rose does have averages of 21.2 points, 3.4 assists, 3.0 boards and 1.8 turnovers over his last five games, shooting 44.4 percent from the field in that span. Regardless, he is going to be a volatile asset to own moving forward.
