Derrick Rose shot 3-of-9 from the field for 10 points with four rebounds, one assist, one 3-pointer and two turnovers.
He's been at 33.3 percent or lower in three of his five preseason games and clearly still has not found his shot. The good news is that he looks great out there with respect to his quickness and the rust is staring to come off. There are too many risks to grab him in the first three rounds of fantasy drafts.

Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said that Derrick Rose "has got to do a lot better [defensively]."

Rose shrugged off his coach's criticism, saying that he's "used to it," and he has a few more preseason games to get tuned up before the Bulls' regular-season opener. He's averaging 12.0 points on 39.4 percent shooting during the exhibition season, adding 1.3 triples, 3.8 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 0.7 steals in only 17.8 minutes per contest.

Derrick Rose hit just 4-of-12 shots but finished with 15 points, five rebounds and five assists in 21 minutes on Monday against the Nuggets.

Rose got to the line six times, making all of them, but he still doesn't look as sharp and confident as we're used to seeing. That's good news because the numbers have been there in the past two games and it still feels like he has a lot of room to improve. We'll see if the Rose hype train starts gaining steam after being relatively quiet recently.
Oct 14 - 2:22 AM

Derrick Rose hit 5-of-10 shots and three 3-pointers for 16 points, five rebounds, four assists and two steals in Saturday's win over the Bucks.

He played just 22 minutes and finally hit some shots. He's had a rough summer and preseason as he comes back from more knee surgery, but looked very good tonight. Rust and nights off are both concerns for Rose, but tonight's game was promising.
Oct 11 - 11:44 PM

Derrick Rose was back at practice on Friday and coach Tom Thibodeau said he looked good.

He just had some rest on Thursday and he's currently healthy. Rose played in back-to-back games earlier this week, so he's going to be ready for the regular season. Of course, his play has been sub-par since his ACL surgery.
Oct 10 - 2:31 PM

Derrick Rose was given a rest day and held out of Thursday's practice.

The pre-planned rest day comes at the right time as Rose is said to be dealing with minor soreness. The Bulls are again going to be cautious with their young star recovering from yet another year-ending injury. Rose has struggled throughout the preseason thus far, but fantasy owners are hoping he can come close to returning to his MVP-caliber level.
Oct 9 - 3:02 PM

Derrick Rose missed all four of his shots to finish with just six points and one assist in 14 minutes of Tuesday's preseason game.

Rose looked better on Monday, when he had 11 points, but still just had one assist in that one. He's obviously got the talent to be one of the best point guards in the league, but he might struggle with his confidence for a big chunk of the season. Along with Dwyane Wade and some others, Rose is a true risk vs. reward pick in fantasy this year. Make sure you have another solid point guard option or two if you elect to roll the dice on Rose. He looked awful rusty for Team USA this summer, and it was more of the same tonight.
Oct 8 - 12:32 AM

Derrick Rose played 14 minutes in his 2014 preseason debut on Monday, making 4-of-7 from the field for 11 points with four rebounds, one assist, one steal, one turnover and one 3-pointer.

First and foremost, he'll be a game-time decision on Tuesday. Rose was aggressive tonight and looked a lot better than he did during the FIBA World Cup. Coach Tom Thibodeau obviously is going to keep Rose in check and he won't want to tire him out before the regular season. He's a little too risky for our liking.
Oct 6 - 11:59 PM

Derrick Rose is trying to look at the bright side of his poor showing during the FIBA World Cup, going with the ideology that it can't get any worse.

"I think when you play a whole summer of USA Basketball and you miss 50-some shots and only hit one 3-pointer the entire time, I think that is kind of eases your nerves a little bit, knowing it can’t get any worse," he said. "That’s probably the worst you’ll ever see me shoot, so I can only go up, and that’s the only thing I could care about." Rose will get his first preseason action Monday night vs. Washington, and it'll be interesting to see how he performs as a go-to guy on the offense. Rose remains an extremely risky selection in the early-rounds of drafts.

Derrick Rose is excited for the preseason exhibition season, saying, "I’ve been doing a great job of pacing the game and pacing myself."

Rose is particularly excited to have Pau Gasol as a go-to offensive option. "We can play through Pau in the post. So I don’t have to worry about starting off games the way I used to in the past," Rose said. "[Gasol's presence] kind of lets everybody get easy shots." Tom Thibodeau suggested that he'll limit his starters to between 14-24 minutes during Monday's exhibition, and there's no need to fret if Rose is benched early in the game.
Oct 5 - 7:22 PM

Coach Tom Thibodeau said on Saturday that Derrick Rose had his best practice to date.

Thibodeau added that Rose is getting used to the contact. His star point guard had a disastrous FIBA World Cup while the rest of his teammates flourished. Everything people say about Rose has been that he's back to his MVP form, but his performance on the court when it counts has told another story. His effective field goal percentage last season was worse than any other qualifying player.
Oct 4 - 5:29 PM

Derrick Rose reiterated his desire to avoid unnecessary contact this season, which could mean he'll choose his spots when driving at the rim.

"If I have an open shot, shoot. If I have a pull-up, shoot it. Shoot a lot more floaters so that people won’t touch my body like they did in the past throughout the entire game," Rose said. "I think that [constant contact] really hurts you I think as an athlete — you need your years." Rose's shot attempts have slowly shifted toward the 3-point line throughout his five-year career, a change which may be accelerated this season -- hopefully an increase in 3-pointers will offset any loss in FG percentage.
Oct 1 - 9:45 AM

Derrick Rose is healthy and ready to get the preseason going as soon as possible, he said on Tuesday.

"When you miss two years you want games right away," Rose said. "I wish we had a game tomorrow, but we’ve got to wait a couple of more days." It will be interesting to see how many games Rose plays in this season, as well as if he gets the night off on back-to-backs, along with routine rest during practices. His shot was broken this summer in FIBA play and he hasn't really played in the NBA in two years. But if he has a good preseason and enters the year fully healthy, he could be a steal on draft night, as he's not going until Round 3, at the earliest, in most leagues.
Sep 30 - 9:06 PM

Bulls' coach Tom Thibodeau said that he expects Derrick Rose to play without restrictions for the 2014-15 season.

Bulls GM Gar Forman also added he feels Rose has complete trust in his knee, and he saw "reactivity and explosiveness" during Rose's games at the FIBA World Cup. Bulls management from top to bottom has been very positive with all reports regarding Rose, despite his struggles shooting the ball (25.4 percent from the field) during the FIBA tournament. Rose will be asked to be a focal point of the Bulls offense this season, but remains an extremely risky early-round selection in re-draft leagues.
Sep 29 - 5:10 PM

K.C. Johnson reported that Derrick Rose should see around 30 minutes per game as the bulls try to be conservative with their superstar.

Rose saw around 30 minutes per game the last time he went down so this is a pretty safe estimate. Rose demonstrated the same athleticism that we were used to during the FIBA World Cup but his jump shot was downright awful. He is going to be a very risky pick near the first few rounds of standard drafts, and it would also not be surprising to see him held out of some back-to-backs at some point.
