The Wolves are interested in bringing back Derrick Rose, according to Jon Krawczynski of the Athletic.
Wolves coach and president, Tom Thibodeau, took some heat for signing Rose at the end of last season, but Derrick played surprisingly well in the playoffs. Rose averaged 14.2 points (on 50.9 percent shooting), 2.6 assists and 1.4 treys during Minnesota's five-game series vs. Houston. Assuming he's willing to come back for the veteran's minimum, expect him to re-up with Minny. However, the issue is that Rose would eat into the playing time of Tyus Jones. May 12 - 1:28 PM

Derrick Rose came through with 17 points, six boards, four assists and two 3-pointers on 7-of-11 shooting off the bench in Monday's Game 4 loss.

Jeff Teague was dealing with a jammed finger, but was able to return, and the Rockets put the game away with a 50-point third quarter, so Rose got some extra run tonight. He's actually been playing well for the Wolves, scoring 16 points or more in three of his four playoff games, but it would appear that the Wolves' season is winding down quickly now that they're down 3-1 in the series. If you want to play Rose as a punt play on Wednesday, it makes sense.

Derrick Rose scored 17 points with two assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 21 minutes off the bench against the Rockets on Saturday.

He hit a dagger 3-pointer in the corner and now has a 3-pointer in each of his three playoff games after he only made one with the Wolves during the regular season. Rose has taken a lot of heat this year and justifiably so, but maybe coach Tom Thibodeau can bring some of the magic back. He's attempted 14-plus field goals in two of the last three, so he's a viable DFS punt.

Derrick Rose cooled off on Wednesday with nine points on 4-of-9 shooting, one rebound, one assist and one steal in 17 minutes.

Rose dropped 16 points with four assists in a strong Game 1 performance but he couldn't duplicate the feat tonight -- at one point in the first half he had three consecutive shots blocked. The Wolves are in trouble if they're relying on D-Rose's bench contributions to upset the No. 1 seed Rockets.

Derrick Rose came off the bench for 16 points in 24 minutes during Game 1 on Sunday, going 7-of-14 from the field with four assists, two rebounds and one 3-pointer.

Rose came in averaging 12.4 minutes in nine previous games with the Wolves, but coach Tom Thibodeau's faith was rewarded tonight. It helped that Jeff Teague was in early foul trouble and there was no way to foresee this scoring -- Rose hadn't scored more than 14 points in a game since Nov. 3, when he was playing with Cleveland. Even if Rose gets a similar workload on Wednesday, we're not expecting a repeat performance.
Apr 15 - 11:53 PM

Derrick Rose scored 13 points with three assists, one rebound and one triple in 22 minutes vs. the Grizzlies on Monday.

We don't say this very often anymore, but Rose was actually pretty good. He even logged some minutes next to Jeff Teague and gave the Wolves a spark after a terrible start. Despite his strong game, there's no guarantee that Rose will be in the playoff rotation, assuming the Wolves get in.
Apr 9 - 11:12 PM

Derrick Rose scored four points in 15 minutes against the Nuggets on Thursday.

He actually played OK and coach Tom Thibodeau may use him more. Although, Jimmy Butler returning should cut into Rose's minutes.
Apr 6 - 1:10 AM

Derrick Rose, Jimmy Butler and Jeff Teague are all on the active list for Thursday against the Nuggets.

This doesn't really mean much as we wait for the starting lineups. Teague should be a go while Butler sounds like he has a chance to at least try to play.
Apr 5 - 9:47 PM

Derrick Rose (ankle) picked up a DNP-CD on Sunday.

Rose was in uniform and technically 'available' but coach Tom Thibodeau opted for Aaron Brooks as the backup PG behind Tyus Jones. "I know I’m going to have my time to be out there and actually be healthy," Rose said recently. "[To] not think about anything and just react when I’m out there." Fantasy owners know better than to wait for that to happen.
Apr 1 - 9:55 PM

Derrick Rose (ankle) is available to play vs. Utah on Sunday.

This doesn't mean he'll definitely take the court, but he's at least in uniform for a Wolves team already missing Jeff Teague.
Apr 1 - 6:08 PM

Derrick Rose (ankle) is now a game-time call on Sunday vs. the Jazz.

Jeff Teague (undisclosed) is also a game-time call. Rose was previously listed as doubtful, so he must be making good progress. Even if Rose plays and Teague doesn't, we'd still prefer streaming Jamal Crawford or Tyus Jones over him.
Apr 1 - 11:54 AM

Derrick Rose (ankle) is doubtful for Sunday against the Jazz.

Jamal Crawford and Tyus Jones were effective on Friday, so why would the Wolves even play Rose?
Mar 31 - 5:50 PM

Derrick Rose (ankle) is not traveling with the team and will not play Friday vs. Dallas.

Rose will miss his fifth straight game on Friday; however, coach Tom Thibodeau said that "almost all of the swelling is out of Rose’s ankle " and that his return should be imminent. Nonetheless, Rose should be left on the waiver wire.
Mar 30 - 1:07 PM

Derrick Rose (ankle) will not suit up for Wednesday's game against the Hawks, as expected.

Leave him on the wire.
Mar 28 - 12:07 PM

Derrick Rose (ankle) is not expected to play Wednesday against the Hawks.

"He’s getting closer, but he’s not there yet," said head coach Tom Thibodeau when asked to discuss Rose's status for tomorrow's game. Rose is perpetually injured and not worth the headache in any league.
