Tom Thibodeau focused on the positive aspects of Derrick Rose's participation in the FIBA World Cup, including his ability to play five games in six days.
Rose stayed healthy and helped Team USA to the gold medal, though he averaged only 4.8 points on 25.4 percent shooting and was a combined 1-of-19 from downtown. He also had 18 turnovers to go along with his 28 assists, and will need to scrape off a few more layers of rust before Chicago's season opener vs. the Knicks on Oct. 29. Sep 14 - 6:21 PM

Derrick Rose said he would give his FIBA World Cup performance an "A" grade.

He must not have had many difficult classes in his day. Rose is sitting at 27.3 percent from the field and is 1-of-17 from beyond the arc, which gives him an effective field goal percentage of 28.2 in eight FIBA games. As a reference point, Michael Carter-Williams finished last among qualifiers with a 43.1 effective field goal percentage last season. Despite what he says, Rose really needs a strong game in the final to help his confidence.

Derrick Rose said he's in the best shape ever before training camp.

"I accomplished everything I wanted to accomplish but win this championship. That’s tomorrow," Rose said. He's saying all the right things, but his performances are speaking much louder volumes. Rose's jumper seems to be broken right now, and maybe he'll get it figured out before the regular season starts.

Derrick Rose said he's not worried about his jump shot at the FIBA World Cup.

He gets bonus points for his unwavering confidence, but Rose has somehow shot just 1-of-17 from downtown in the tournament, and looked horrible against Lithuania on Thursday, making just 1-of-8 from the field. He's only had one good game in FIBA and will look to make it two in the final on Sunday.
Sep 12 - 9:52 AM

Derrick Rose's abysmal FIBA World Cup continued on Thursday, making 1-of-8 from the field for four points with one rebound, one assist, one steal and three turnovers against Lithuania on Thursday.

Well, so much for that 6-of-10 shooting line on Tuesday carrying over into the semifinal. Rose is now just 1-of-17 from beyond the arc in the tournament and his jumper has been useless. He's still getting around people with his dribble, but he's now had eight games to shake off the rust, and it's becoming even more difficult to give him a pass. Fantasy owners should just let someone else deal with him at this point.
Sep 11 - 5:02 PM

Derrick Rose has shot 1-of-13 from beyond the arc through seven games at the FIBA World Cup.

He's averaging just 5.6 points in the tournament, but to his credit he's adding 3.0 assists and 1.0 steals in just 18 minutes per game. He looked sharper and more aggressive vs. Slovenia during Tuesday's quarterfinals, scoring 12 points on 6-of-10 shooting. With any luck his 3-point drought is temporary -- he was hitting 1.6 triples on a career-high 34.0 percent shooting from deep in 10 games last season.
Sep 9 - 5:29 PM

Derrick Rose said he think he's figured out what's wrong with his shot and said everyone will see his improvements against Slovenia on Tuesday.

ESPN's Marc Stein added that a source told him that Rose's jumper looks a little different. He is shooting a pathetic 21.6 percent from the field in FIBA while the rest of Team USA is shooting over 55 percent. We'll let you know how he fares on Tuesday.
Sep 8 - 9:14 AM

Tom Thibodeau emphasized that it will be a process for Derrick Rose to return to his MVP-form, and that there's not much to read into his uninspiring stat-lines through the FIBA World Cup.

"If you look at the missed layups, those are ones he usually makes, so that will come,’’ Thibodeau told reporters. "As he finds the rhythm of the game, it will get better and better for him... He’s not playing a lot of minutes, so that’s different for him, but he’s finding his way." Rose also said that he was "laughing" about going scoreless in USAB's game vs. Mexico, and added that it's hard to come into games aggressively looking to score when your team is up by 20 points. Rose has not had a good tournament, struggling to score against weak defenses (21.6 percent from the field), but some rust is to be expected after only playing in 10 games over two years. It’ll be interesting to see how he performs during preseason when he’ll be asked to score as the team’s number one option on offense. Rose remains an extremely risky selection come draft day.
Sep 7 - 8:48 AM

Derrick Rose said he can still be a dominant scorer for the Bulls this upcoming season.

"Oh, hell yeah; c’mon, man," Rose said when asked if he's capable of being an elite scorer. "I’m definitely ready for that. But right now [for Team USA], I don’t have to, so what’s the need?" Coach Tom Thibodeau added that the World Cup has been "all positive" for Rose. Hopefully, he can get one good game in before he comes back to the states, because his 21.6 percent from the field right in his six FIBA games would not be a positive for fantasy owners.
Sep 6 - 6:45 PM

Derrick Rose went scoreless on his five attempts from the field vs. Mexico on Saturday, adding two rebounds, four assists, one steal and three turnovers.

This has not been a great week for Rose. He's had some positives with his lateral quickness, but he isn't elevating like he used, he's turning the ball over too often, and now he's shooting an abysmal 21.6 percent from the field. There's no reason to overreact, but this is even tougher to swallow considering how great his teammates have looked.
Sep 6 - 11:38 AM

Derrick Rose said he's "loving" the way he's playing at the FIBA World Cup.

"Missing shots, that’s part of the game. But conditioning-wise and how I’ve been playing defense, I’m loving the way I’m playing," Rose said. He's only made 25 percent of his shots in five games while most of his teammates are lighting it up -- Kenneth Faried is shooting 79.1 percent, Kyrie Irving is at 52.6 percent and James Harden is shooting 57.1 percent. While we don't want to make too much of Rose struggling, we would really like to see him get at least one good game under his belt.
Sep 5 - 11:02 AM

Derrick Rose only scored four points on 2-of-9 shooting during Thursday's 95-71 win over Ukraine at the World Cup of Basketball.

Rose only added four rebounds and four assists to go with his poor shooting performance as his World Cup struggles continued. We'll cut Rose some slack as he shakes off the rust from his knee surgery, but fantasy owners would be wise to have Rose listed below the top-25 on their cheatsheets heading into draft day.
Sep 4 - 1:20 PM

Derrick Rose's lackluster FIBA tournament continued on Wednesday, scoring six points with one rebound, three assists, two steals and one turnover.

He's been slow starting and stopping on the court and hasn't been the explosive D-Rose we've come to know and love. Rose has eight assists and eight turnovers and is shooting 26.1 percent from the field in this tournament, so his rust from a skill standpoint clearly evident. There are just too many good players in the top-25 picks of fantasy drafts to reach for Rose in the second or even third round in some cases.
Sep 3 - 5:16 PM

Derrick Rose is expected to play in Team USA's games on Wednesday and Thursday, according to coaches Mike Krzyzewski and Tom Thibodeau.

This stretch of three games in three nights is a stringent test for Rose's health, but Coach K said that Rose looks good and "doesn'ts how any signs of favoring anything." He started the second half on Tuesday and could take on a bigger role as the World Cup progresses, despite some understandable limitations. "Physically he feels good. Mentally he's good. But he's got to work on ‎his timing," said Thibodeau. "He hasn't played in two years basically. So it doesn't happen overnight."
Sep 3 - 9:27 AM

Derrick Rose said he was "feeling good" after Team USA's back-to-back set.

"I know the questions are going to come and they're going to be there the whole year. So I can’t get tired of it," said Rose regarding questions about the health of his knees. "I’m feeling good right now. Just trying to get in better shape, get in better condition, so that when I do need to score the ball, then it’ll be there." Team USA will have three games in three nights following Monday's "rest day," and that will be a good test for Rose. Rose is correct in assuming the questions will continue to come in all season regarding the health of his knees, and that any minor setback will make headlines. But with just 10 games played in the past two seasons, the concern is reasonable. Rose will be a high-risk, and highly stressful player to own for the 2014-15 season, but his upside is first-round value.
