Derrick Rose played 24 minutes against the Wolves on Wednesday with 11 points, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.
Brandon Jennings gave the Knicks some really good minutes, so coach Jeff Hornacek went with him over Rose -- Jennings played the entire fourth while Rose played just three minutes. Both point guards were used together for 10 minutes tonight, which has been an upward trend as the year has gone on. Rose has been playing well, but he only has late-round value. Nov 30 - 11:56 PM

Derrick Rose made 10-of-20 field goals, scoring a season-high 30 points in 38 minutes in Monday’s loss to the Thunder.

Rose was perfect from the free throw line, making all 10 of his shots and also grabbed seven boards, while dishing out four dimes. He has taken at least 10 shots in all but one game in the month of November, averaging 14.7 shot attempts, 16.1 points, 5.4 assists, and 4.3 rebounds in that span. He accounts for 23.2 percent of the Knicks points and 33.9 percent of their assists, while owning a usage rate of 25.8 percent. As long as he can stay healthy and in the lineup for the Knicks, fantasy owners will be rewarded for taking a late flier on him this year. He has yet missed a game this season, which is a bonus.

Derrick Rose made 6-of-20 from the field for 18 points against the Hornets on Saturday, adding eight rebounds, eight assists, two steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes.

That's a lot of misses for Rose and his most on the season. Rose was actually shooting the ball somewhat well at 44.4 percent from the field in his previous games, which would be by far his best percentage since his 2011 MVP season. He is somewhat exceeding expectations, but he still only has 11th-round value per game in standard leagues.
Nov 26 - 10:24 PM

Derrick Rose acknowledged after Tuesday's win over Portland that he's no longer the same player he was during his MVP season.

"That vintage [Rose] is gone, man. I told you the question should be: Can I hoop? I can hoop," Rose said. Rose hit a clutch shot during the closing seconds of Tuesday's game to secure the win for New York, and while he is scoring 15.8 points a night this year, his assist numbers (4.8), turnovers (2.9) and defensive stats (0.6 steals) are subpar. He's barely clinging to top-150 value on the year in standard 9-cat leagues, although his value is much more attractive in points formats.
Nov 23 - 2:02 PM

Derrick Rose scored 18 points with five assists, four rebounds, two steals, one block and one turnover in 28 minutes against the Blazers on Tuesday.

Portland ranks dead last in defensive efficiency and have struggled against opposing point guards all season, so Rose took advantage of a great matchup tonight. He shot an efficient 8-of-15 from the field and took care of the ball with just one turnover. He was shooting 43.6 percent from the field prior to Tuesday with 3.1 turnovers, so that's really holding him back in standard leagues.
Nov 22 - 10:27 PM

Derrick Rose scored 14 points on 5-of-14 shooting Sunday, to go with three boards, seven assists and four turnovers in 30 minutes.

Poor shooting (43.6 percent), too many turnovers (3.1) and unsatisfactory contributions to the 3-point shooting (0.5) and steals (0.5) categories have Rose ranked well outside the top-150 in standard 9-cat leagues, and he's just a late-round guy in 8-cat formats. He’s a much more attractive asset in points leagues.
Nov 20 - 4:18 PM

Derrick Rose hit 8-of-18 shots and three 3-pointers for a season-high 27 points, two rebounds, four assists and a steal in Thursday's loss to the Wizards.

Rose had just three points on 1-of-6 shooting on Monday, but has scored 15 and 27 in his last two games. He's yet to miss a game this season and has some explosiveness, but he's still a tough player to trust. But if you took a flier on him in your draft, he's paying dividends early.
Nov 17 - 9:38 PM

Derrick Rose hit 7-of-15 shots for 15 points, five rebounds, three assists and a block in Wednesday's win over the Pistons.

Rose was just 1-of-6 for three points on Monday, but was back in form last night. He's been able to stay healthy thus far, which will obviously be the key to his success over the course of the season.
Nov 17 - 7:35 AM

Derrick Rose hit just 1-of-6 shots for three points, four rebounds, five assists and five turnovers in 28 minutes of Monday's win over the Mavericks.

Not only was this his worst game of the season, it marks the first time he didn't score at least 11 points in a game this season. He was due for an off night and that's exactly what we got tonight. Hopefully it won't be followed up by a maintenance rest day, as the oft-injured Rose has yet to miss a game this season. HE's been really good for most of the season, so there's no reason to panic after one bad night.
Nov 14 - 10:23 PM

Derrick Rose scored 21 points on 10-of-20 shooting Saturday, to go with four boards, four assists, four turnovers and nothing else through 38 minutes of action.

Rose is pretty much playing as expected in New York with averages of 15.4 points, 4.3 boards, 4.9 assists and 3.0 turnovers per game without offering much defensive statistics or 3-pointers. He’s been a late-round guy, so he’s worth owning, but with a low-ceiling owners shouldn’t be clinging to him if he ever suffers an injury.
Nov 12 - 10:28 PM

Derrick Rose scored 11 points with six assists, four rebounds and one triple in Friday's 115-87 loss to the Celtics.

He was really inefficient, shooting 3-of-10 from the field with seven turnovers, but at least he hit all four free throws. Rose was actually playing pretty decent in his previous seven games with averages of 16.0 points, 4.7 assists and 4.3 boards, but he also has 2.4 turnovers and has hit just three triples on the season.
Nov 11 - 10:50 PM

Derrick Rose scored 18 points on 7-of-14 shooting during Sunday's loss to the Jazz, adding four boards, eight assists, one steal and four turnovers through 36 minutes of action.

Rose did a ton of over dribbling in this one, neglecting numerous times to offer Kristaps Porzingis the rock when he had a mismatch, but that’s basically par for the course for the former-MVP. He has been a top-100 guy this season, so as long as he’s healthy and starting, he’ll be worth owning.
Nov 6 - 3:01 PM

Derrick Rose was terrific in his return to Chicago during the 117-104 win on Friday, scoring 15 points with 11 assists, seven rebounds, one steal and one block in 39 minutes.

He had a combined 11 assists in his first four games, so clearly this was Rose's best game. He also played a season-high 38 minutes after playing between 30-32 in his previous four. The Knicks almost certainly won't play Rose minutes in the upper 30s too often, so this game is an anomaly. If he's floating on your waiver wire and want to see if he can pick it up, give him a look. He'll be a perennial sell-high player.
Nov 5 - 2:16 AM

Derrick Rose said the Knicks need to improve their defense after their 118-99 loss to the Rockets.

Knicks head coach Jeff Hornacek expressed disappointment in New York's defense after the game, and Derrick Rose agreed. "It’s nothing but defense,’’ Rose said. "If we don’t play defense, we’re going to get smacked like that.’’ While has been able to stay healthy thus far, his averages of 16.3 points, 4.0 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 1.0 steals, and 0.3 three-pointers leave him as more of a low-end player in standard fantasy leagues.
Nov 3 - 9:16 AM

Derrick Rose scored 16 points against the Rockets on Wednesday with four rebounds, four assists, two steals and two turnovers in 30 minutes.

He was 8-of-18 from the field and is actually shooting the ball at a respectable 44.6 percent from the field in his four games this season. Rose's turnovers are also in check at 2.0 per game, but his other averages aren't great at 16.3 points, 4.0 boards, 2.5 assists, 1.0 steals and 0.3 treys. He should be a low-end option while he's healthy.
