Derrick Rose struggled for a second consecutive game against the Bucks on Monday, making 5-of-20 from the field for 13 points with four rebounds, two assists, one steal and six turnovers.
He missed all seven attempts from deep and coach Tom Thibodeau will probably have a word with Rose to relax on those attempts. The Bulls made just 7-of-30 (23.3 percent) in the fourth quarter and only had seven fast-break points in the entire game. Rose was able to play with some control in his enormous Game 3, but he's been chaotic in the last two games. He'll get a couple days off before Game 6 on Thursday. Apr 27 - 10:45 PM

Derrick Rose took the blame for Chicago's Game 4 loss to the Bucks on Saturday after he allowed Jerryd Bayless to have an open layup under the basket in the closing seconds of the game.

"I put that all on me," Rose said. "I wasn't paying attention. I don't feel bad for myself, I feel bad for my teammates. Knowing that we could've forced overtime. I messed things up, but I swear I'm good for it." Rose was pretty reckless throughout the game and finished with eight turnovers to go with his 14 points, five boards, six assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers. The Bulls lead the Bucks 3-1, but Rose is going to have to step it up before Milwaukee gains any more momentum

Derrick Rose couldn't keep his momentum going on Saturday against the Bucks, making 5-of-13 from the field for 14 points with five rebounds, six assists, one steal, one block, two 3-pointers and eight turnovers.

He also turned the ball over on the Bulls' last possession and fell asleep on the last play of the game to give up an easy basket to Jerryd Bayless at the buzzer. Rose still had his explosion, but he was careless with his ball handling and shot selection. He didn't quite undo his progress coming from the 34-point game on Thursday, but this game was pretty bad. We'll see what happens on Monday at home.

Derrick Rose said he's feeling good heading into Game 4 on Saturday.

He had a minor tweak to his back in the second half and also was fouled very hard late in the game, causing him to remain on the floor for around 15 seconds. Coach Tom Thibodeau said Rose was in attack mode and the Bulls will want that to continue in their upcoming series against the Cavs. With Jimmy Butler busting out, the Bulls have the ammo to give the Cavs some competition. If Rose has another big game, the buzz for that series will be as high as any.

Derrick Rose was in MVP form during Thursday's double-overtime 113-106 win over the Bucks, scoring 34 points with five rebounds, eight assists, three steals and five 3-pointers in 48 minutes.

It's the most minutes he's played since 2011 and the most points he's had in any game since 2012. Rose also had a playoff career-high five treys tonight and played with a ton of confidence. On top of the offense, Rose was tremendous on defense. All the "He's Back" talk is certainly justified and his body language was like nothing we've ever seen since his first knee injury. The Bulls are just a different team when he's out there right now. In fact, their net rating is 30.8 greater when Rose is on the court compared when he's off. If the Bulls get this kind of Rose the rest of the way, they're certainly going to give the Cavs trouble. The Bulls will look to sweep this series on Saturday.

Derrick Rose said that he is feeling good physically, and he hasn't experienced any soreness after logging 38 minutes during Game 2 on Monday.

This would be a non-story with any other player, but because it is the oft-injured Rose, any story regarding his health (positive or negative) will make the headlines. For what it's worth, Rose has looked fantastic health-wise through the first two games of the playoffs, and hopefully he can finally put all his injury woes behind him. A long and healthy playoff run will do a lot to prove the doubters wrong.
Apr 21 - 3:00 PM

Derrick Rose scored all 15 points in the second half against the Bucks on Monday, adding seven boards, nine assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

He looked great out there, but his shot selection was not where it should be in the first half. Rose looks as athletic as ever and his passing was much better tonight, too. Additionally, his 38 minutes are a great sign for him and he might be at 40 minutes by the time the Cleveland series comes around.
Apr 20 - 10:55 PM

Head coach Tom Thibodeau praised Derrick Rose and said that all of his injuries have just made him stronger.

"Obviously, we're a much better team with Derrick," Thibodeau said. "He has been through a grind. We're very pleased to have him back. Hopefully, this is the beginning of a long run of health for him. Time does go by quickly. You're talking about a guy who is sort of now in the middle of his career. He has been through a lot. Early on, you're 22 and the MVP of the league and there weren't many bumps in the road. He has hit a few bumps and gotten through those. The fact he has, I think, has made him stronger." Rose was excellent in a win vs. the Bucks on Saturday with 23 points, seven assists, two steals, one block and three 3-pointers, and it didn't look his knees were an issue at all. He will look to to keep building momentum in Game 2 on Monday.
Apr 19 - 9:33 AM

Derrick Rose looked 100 percent during a 103-91 win over the Bucks on Saturday, scoring 23 points with seven assists, two steals, one block and three 3-pointers.

He made 9-of-16 from the field and made the most of the Bucks not bringing double-teams to him. Rose said multiple times in the post-game interview on ESPN that he had open looks because the Bucks didn't double, so expect that message to be received loud and clear in Game 2 on Monday. Of course, Rose looking great tonight is a top-five story from the day.
Apr 18 - 10:11 PM

Derrick Rose (knee), Joakim Noah (hamstring) and Taj Gibson (shoulder) are good to go for Saturday's game vs. the Bucks.

Rose scared the Bulls when he left Wednesday's regular-season finale vs. the Hawks with knee soreness, but he made it clear that he sat out as a precaution. Rose made it through a full practice on Friday and his minutes could be on the rise in the playoffs. We will let you know how he holds up after the game. For what it's worth, this will be his first playoff series since the 2011-12 season.
Apr 18 - 11:21 AM

Derrick Rose (knee) was a full participant during Friday's practice, and he will play in Game 1 against the Bucks on Saturday.

Rose will take the court in a playoff series for the first time since the 2011-12 season on Saturday, and it appears that the minor left knee soreness that caused him to miss the second half of Wednesday's regular-season finale will be a non-issue going forward. Any news regarding Rose's troublesome knees is going to make the headlines, but a deep playoff push behind a healthy Rose will at least temporarily silence the critics. Tom Thibodeau said that Rose will play around the same amount of minutes he did towards the end of the regular-season, so it sounds like he'll still be with a minutes limit.

Derrick Rose is dealing with minor left knee soreness.

The soreness is in the knee in which Rose tore his ACL back in 2012 and not the one needing surgery for a torn meniscus. "It's nothing serious at all," Rose said. "I'm just being cautious. I'm used to knee injuries and my knees being sore. It's just that it was the last game and we didn't want it to linger into a couple of more days." The Bulls are downplaying the issue, which isn't a surprise. Still, Rose should be good to go for Game 1 against the Bucks on Saturday.
Apr 16 - 7:40 PM

Derrick Rose didn't play in the second half of Wednesday's game vs. the Hawks due to soreness in his left knee, but the Bulls do not seem to be concerned.

This isn't the same knee that he had his most recent procedure on, but it should be noted that he has torn his ACL in his left knee before (2012). However, Rose was in good spirits on the sidelines and said that he could have played if it were a playoff game, so it looks like he was just being cautious. Head coach Tom Thibodeau expects Rose to be ready to play in Game 1 of the playoffs, but we will pass along any additional information when we know more. Rose finished with two points, two boards, one assist and four turnovers in 10 minutes.
Apr 15 - 10:47 PM

Derrick Rose will play four segments on Wednesday vs. the Hawks according to head coach Tom Thibodeau.

Rose played just 23 minutes vs. the Nets on Monday, but that was mainly due to the lopsided score. He could approach close to 30 minutes tonight, so his owners can go ahead and get him active. Rose still needs to shake off some rust, but he is making a lot of progress and could make the Bulls a very dangerous team in the playoffs.
Apr 15 - 12:11 PM

Derrick Rose scored 13 points with three rebounds, seven assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 23 minutes against the Nets on Monday.

He didn't play in the fourth segment tonight because the Bulls blew out the Nets tonight. Rose was effective on defense and he's really changed his mentality on the offensive side with less contested jumpers. Rose is expected to play in the season finale on Wednesday to help him shake off the rust.
