Derrick Rose tied his season high with 30 points during Wednesday's win in Boston, hitting 13-of-24 FGs and 4-of-4 FTs with 10 rebounds, five assists, two steals and two blocks.
Rose isn't known for his efficiency but he's looked very good in New York's past five games, averaging 21.5 points on combined 45-of-83 shooting (54.2 percent). He also has zero 3-pointers in that span, and tonight's defensive stats were a rarity, but his owners aren't complaining. If you've been waiting for a sell-high moment, this is it. Jan 18 - 11:26 PM

Derrick Rose scored 18 points with four rebounds, nine assists, one steal, one block and six turnovers in 33 minutes against the Hawks on Monday.

He had a chance to win the game on the last possession, but he couldn't get a layup to fall with Paul Millsap getting a block at the rim against him. Although, he may have been fouled and it wasn't called. The Knicks clearly won't be penalizing Rose on the court for his no-call, no-show move last week with his minutes also on par with 31.8 per game since then. He'll be a low-end guy in standard leagues, but he is trending up slightly.
Jan 16 - 3:48 PM

Derrick Rose scored 16 points on 6-of-12 shooting Sunday, to go with two rebounds, three assists and two turnovers in 29 minutes.

This is pretty much your prototypical Rose-line with double-digit scoring and not much else. Rose's assist-to-turnover ratio of 1.83 is one of the worst in the league amongst starting point guards, and his lackluster contributions in assists (4.4), steals (0.7) and triples (0.3) has him sitting on a late-round evaluation on the year. He's a much more attractive guy to own in points formats.
Jan 15 - 6:00 PM

Derrick Rose scored 17 points with three assists and four rebounds in 34 minutes on Thursday night against the Bulls.

Rose played well against his former team and has scored 42 points in the last two game since returning from an unexcused absence to attend a family matter. It appears that things are back to normal for the Knicks’ backcourt and Rose can be deployed as per usual. New York’s next game is on Sunday against the Raptors, who are giving up the sixth most points per game and the highest field goal percentage to opposing point guards.

Derrick Rose (personal) started Wednesday's game vs. the Sixers, finishing a brutal road loss with 25 points on 11-of-16 shooting, four assists, two rebounds, one steals and two turnovers in 32 minutes.

The strange saga of Rose's unexcused absence from Monday's game ended with a "hefty" fine but no suspension, and it clearly didn't distract him from his on-court duties tonight. He played some minutes alongside Brandon Jennings, while Ron Baker picked up a DNP-CD, so for now order has been restored in the Knicks' backcourt. Get Rose back in your active lineups.
Jan 11 - 10:06 PM

Jeff Hornacek confirmed that Derrick Rose (personal) will return to the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the 76ers.

Rose had an unexcused absence on Monday as he abruptly left the team to be with his family, and he was reportedly in such a bad mental state on Monday that he briefly considered stepping away from the game for an extended period to "clear his mind." He will, however, be back in the starting lineup on Wednesday, which will send Brandon Jennings back to the bench. Hopefully Rose can move past whatever issue he was dealing with.
Jan 11 - 11:18 AM

Jeff Hornacek said that if Derrick Rose is in "the right mental state," then he will start Wednesday vs. the 76ers.

Rose abruptly left the team for what is being called a "family issue," but he did not inform anyone on the Knicks staff that he would not be with the team for Monday night's game, and also failed to pickup a phone call because he needed his "space." The Knicks have fined him, but it sounds like he'll be back in action on Wednesday night, which will queue Brandon Jennings' return to the bench.
Jan 10 - 2:41 PM

Derrick Rose (personal) has been fined by the team, but has not been suspended and is expected to play Wednesday vs. Philadelphia.

The Knicks PR announcement stated that Rose "will be in uniform" on Wednesday, so it's possible coach Jeff Hornacek could still choose not to play him. We will update the situation once we have more info, as we await to hear from Rose and Hornacek following Tuesday's practice.
Jan 10 - 1:38 PM

Knicks officials eventually heard from Derrick Rose on Monday night, but it wasn't until after the team's loss to New Orleans.

The Knicks are trying to determine what course of action they should take with Rose now that they have learned he is okay. A suspension seems like a very real possibility at this point. It is being reported that Rose may request a trade or a buyout. This situation is obviously still developing, as we have not yet heard Rose's side of the story. From a fantasy perspective, it makes sense to grab Brandon Jennings, who will start any games that Rose misses.
Jan 10 - 9:10 AM

Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek would not reveal after Monday's game vs. the Pelicans if Derrick Rose has contacted the team.

"Right now we don’t have information to give you anything," Hornacek said. "That’s just going to have to wait until we hear from Derrick himself." Team officials, Rose's teammates and his close associates don't know why Rose failed to show up to Monday's game, and Brandon Jennings simply said that he hopes Rose is OK. It sounds like we won't know more about this until Tuesday at the earliest, but it makes sense to pick up Jennings in most leagues.
Jan 9 - 10:20 PM

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical, the Knicks have no idea what's going on with Derrick Rose.

Rose was listed as the starter 90 minutes before tip-off, but failed to show up to the game. Knicks officials tried to get in contact with him all the way up until tip-off, but it's still unclear if they've been able to reach him. According to Woj, team officials, teammates and Rose's close associates don't know what's going on. Rose was reportedly unhappy about being benched in the fourth quarter on Friday vs. the Bucks, but it's not clear if that's the issue here. Hopefully we'll learn more after the game, but this might be the weirdest story of the NBA season so far.
Jan 9 - 9:24 PM

Derrick Rose will not play on Monday vs. the Pelicans and Brandon Jennings will start in his place.

Wow. Talk about a late scratch. Rose was ruled out a mere 10 minutes before tip-off and the Knicks haven't even said why he's away from the team -- head coach Jeff Hornacek didn't even mention Rose in the pre-game press conference. We'll update this situation as soon as we know more.
Jan 9 - 7:35 PM

Derrick Rose played 26 minutes against the Pacers on Saturday with 14 points, two rebounds, three assistss, two steals and two turnovers/

After not playing in the fourth quarter on Friday, he did not play in that frame yet again. Although, the Knicks were down 96-70 to start the fourth, so garbage time was a factor. He's actually played well up until this weekend and has late-round value on the season.
Jan 7 - 9:36 PM

Coach Jeff Hornacek said that he wants Derrick Rose to be more aggressive on his drives to the basket and get to the free-throw line more often.

"I think [Rose] does get fouled sometimes, but sometimes he’s giving the double-pump in there,’’ Hornacek said. "He knows he has to get to the free-throw line more and try to be aggressive going at guys instead of avoiding them." When healthy and in his prime, Rose would average over six free throws per game. Rose is averaging 3.7 FT's a night this season. Hornacek wants to see more of that vintage version of D Rose.
Jan 7 - 2:01 PM

Derrick Rose scored 18 points on 8-of-15 shooting with four assists, three boards and three turnovers in Monday's loss to the Magic.

Rose had a usage rate of 34.5 with Kristaps Porzingis (Achilles) off the court prior to Monday, but he only attempted 15 shots tonight after attempting 21 or more shots in his previous three games. However, he's averaging an impressive 21.8 points per game over his last seven since returning from back spasms, so his owners just need to ride him until the wheels fall off. He gets a matchup with the Bucks on Wednesday.
