Derrick Rose (ankle) will miss at least the next two weeks.
This isn't surprising and the Cavs will just be careful with the oft-injured guard. Iman Shumpert could get some more starts, but Jeff Green ha likely benefited the most because of players moving around. There isn't much to like on adds in fantasy from the Rose news. Also, Channing Frye should play more, so keep an eye on that. Nov 17 - 5:49 PM

Derrick Rose (ankle) won't play on Monday vs. the Knicks.

This is his third straight game on the shelf and seventh overall because of his ankle. The Cavs have said that Rose won't return until he's 100 percent, so he's safe to bench in weekly leagues with two more games on the schedule in Week 5 (Wednesday vs. CHA and Friday vs. DET). Shumpert will make his third straight start and is averaging 6.5 points, 4.5 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 2.0 steals over his last two games.

Derrick Rose (ankle) will not play Saturday vs. the Mavs.

Iman Shumpert will start at point guard vs. Dallas. Rose was held out of Thursday's contest due to "continuing discomfort in his left ankle." Rose also missed four games in late October due to pain in the same ankle. A variety of nagging leg injuries have plagued Rose the last few years, so his inability to stay on the floor this season isn't overly surprising.

Derrick Rose will miss Thursday's game vs. the Rockets because of "continuing discomfort in his left ankle."

He missed four games earlier this season because of the same ankle, but it hasn't been determined yet if he will miss Saturday's game vs. Dallas well. Rose has been a disaster in Cleveland with a 118.5 defensive rating, and his averages of 14.3 points, 2.6 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 0.3 steals and 0.4 triples makes him a low-end fantasy asset best. Iman Shumpert will draw the start in his absence with Jose Calderon backing him up.

Derrick Rose did not play well during Sunday's loss to the Hawks, finishing with 10 points, three rebounds, one assist, one block and four turnovers in 20 minutes.

Rose just isn’t a great fit in Cleveland, and should probably spend less time looking for his shot and more time trying to get his teammates involved. He forced up a lot of bad shots in this one (4-of-12 from the field), and as per usual with Rose, the lack of diversity in his stat lines makes him an unattractive asset in most leagues. It’ll only get worse once Isaiah Thomas (hip) gets back to the court.
Nov 5 - 6:18 PM

According to Dave McMenamin of ESPN, Derrick Rose will have a strict 28-to-31-minute restriction all season no matter how well he plays.

"Let me say, for one, I’m just happy to be a part of this team, part of something that I think is special," Rose said. "A minute restriction, there’s nothing I can do about that. But with me having all these injuries in my past, I’m kind of used to it." Rose added that he's on board with the plan, but this really won't matter much around the new year when the Cavaliers get Isaiah Thomas back.

Derrick Rose finished with 20 points, two assists, one rebound and just two turnovers in 29 minutes Friday at Washington.

Rose hit 8-of-16 from the floor, including 2-of-4 from behind the arc, and he still finished with 37 points less than LeBron James. The King was on another plane in this one, but the game was very encouraging for Rose. He is averaging 19.5 points over his past two games while hitting 17-of-29 (58.6 percent) from the floor. It's a start.
Nov 3 - 9:59 PM

Derrick Rose scored 19 points with four rebounds, one assist and two turnovers in 29 minutes against the Pacers on Wednesday.

He has been decent in the scoring department with 13.7 points per game in his previous outings. However, even with this game included, Rose has just one trey, seven assists and two steals all season. He just doesn't do enough on the stat sheet to warrant ownership in standard leagues, and missing games only makes him less appealing.

Derrick Rose (left ankle) skipped the scrimmage portions of Tuesday's practice, but Tyronn Lue is expecting him to play Wednesday vs. the Pacers.

Rose looked fine in his return to action on Sunday, putting up 15 points, three boards, three dimes and four turnovers through 31 minutes of floor time, so while he may take it easy at practice it doesn't sound like he'll be missing any more games. Additionally, Lue said he won't be making any changes to his starting five, so expect the Cavs to go with a starting group of Rose, J.R. Smith, LeBron James, Kevin Love and Tristan Thompson.

Derrick Rose (left ankle) returned on Sunday with 15 points on 6-of-14 FGs and 3-of-3 FTs, three rebounds, three assists and four turnovers in 31 minutes vs. the Knicks.

It didn't take long for the oft-injured Rose to miss games this season, but at least his rolled ankle didn't cost him much time. This was the Cavs' fifth different starting lineup in seven games, but coach Ty Lue made it sound like this one will stick -- we'll see if he changes his tune after a disappointing home loss to the Knicks.

Derrick Rose (ankle) will start vs. the Knicks on Sunday, as expected.

Jose Calderon gets bumped with Rose healthy, and it sounds like this lineup will stick going forward. If you were holding onto Rose during his absence, don't hesitate to plug him in against his former team.
Oct 29 - 5:25 PM

Derrick Rose (ankle) is expected to play on Sunday vs. the Knicks, according to NBA TV reporter Rebecca Haarlow.

The Cavaliers are just 1-3 since Rose went down, so they'll be happy to have him back. Rose should be motivated against his former team and we haven't heard about any restrictions, so his fantasy owners can pencil him into lineups. Jose Calderon will move to the bench if Rose is cleared, while J.R. Smith, Iman Shumpert and Dwayne Wade will lose value as well.
Oct 29 - 12:18 PM

Derrick Rose (ankle) will not play against the Pelicans on Saturday and Iman Shumpert will get the start.

Rose did some work at shootaround, but the Cavs are going to hold him out yet again. He is likely just day-to-day, but his propensity to miss games makes him really annoying to own in fantasy. Shumpert doesn't have much valued can stay on the wire.
Oct 28 - 5:35 PM

Derrick Rose (ankle) is questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Pelicans.

Dwyane Wade (left knee contusion) is also listed as questionable. On Friday, coach Ty Lue said he planned on rolling with a starting lineup of Rose, J.R. Smith, LeBron James, Kevin Love and Tristan Thompson going forward. However, if Rose is still sidelined, he may have LeBron handle point guard duties and leave Jae Crowder in the starting unit. We may not have a definitive word on Rose's status for Saturday until coach Lue addresses the media 90 minutes before tipoff.
Oct 28 - 11:02 AM

Derrick Rose (ankle) will miss Tuesday's game against the Bulls and Wednesday's game against the Nets.

He's still nursing a left ankle sprain and the Cavs won't bring him back until he's 100 percent. Jose Calderon is looking at at least two more starts, but he scored just two points in 14 minutes in his previous fill-in start.
