K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune said that Derrick Rose and Jimmy Butler will likely both be on the roster next season.
Johnson argues that the Bulls' offseason priority should be to trade either Rose or Butler, which makes some sense because they didn't play well together last season. A trade still seems unlikely because the Bulls' asking price for Butler is very high and Rose doesn't have much value around the league and is entering a contract year, so Chicago may have to give their starting backcourt another chance. Coach Fred Hoiberg did mention that he may stagger their minutes more next season, so that could give both players a slight boost in value. May 22 - 9:35 AM

Derrick Rose isn't thinking about his impending free agency after the 2016-17 season.

While Rose has one season left on his contract with the Bulls, he said he isn't thinking ahead to his upcoming free agency. "I'll think about that when that time comes," Rose said. "As far as right now, the only thing I can think about is this offseason. I've had that mentality ever since my injuries. I learned to deal with reality and live in the moment." While Rose isn't the player he once was, he improved his game after the All-Star Break and is still just 27 years old, so he's worth a late-round flier in 2016-17 fantasy drafts.

Derrick Rose (rest) will not play in Chicago's final two games of the regular season.

It's not clear what prompted this decision, but Rose is done for the year and can be safely dropped in all formats. With E'Twaun Moore (hamstring) also out for the season, Aaron Brooks should get all of the run he can handle and finishes the year with good matchups vs. the Pelicans and Sixers. That makes him an intriguing deploy in season-long formats extending into this week while also putting him squarely onto the DFS radar as a possible punt play, but keep in mind that Jimmy Butler should do most of the playmaking.
Apr 11 - 12:57 PM

Fred Hoiberg said he's open to the idea of staggering Derrick Rose's and Jimmy Butler's minutes next season.

That would be a good idea for both the Bulls and the two individual players, and it's a surprise we didn't see more of it during what turned out to be a very disappointing season in Chicago. It's safe to say that Fred Hoiberg has learned more than he could have ever anticipated during his first season as a head coach in the NBA.
Apr 11 - 11:39 AM

Derrick Rose was quiet on Saturday vs. the Cavaliers, scoring 10 points on 5-of-14 shooting with three assists, two boards and two turnovers.

That's three sub-par games in a row for Rose since he returned from his elbow injury, averaging 13.0 points, 4.7 assists, 3.3 boards, 1.0 steals and 3.0 turnovers on 37.8 percent shooting in that span. Rose has had some nice moments this season, but he's also been very inconsistent and his efficiency hasn't been great either. He will be a volatile asset in standard leagues for the foreseeable future.
Apr 9 - 11:28 PM

Derrick Rose scored 17 points with three rebounds, three assists, two steals and two turnovers in 36 minutes against the Heat on Thursday.

He still hasn't found his jumper and that's a big reason why he's failed to thrive. Rose's lack of a 3-point shot has given him just a 48.1 true shooting percentage, which is the second worst in the NBA among players with a 25.0 usage rate and at least 65 games played this year (Emmanuel Mudiay). He has to work on his game.
Apr 7 - 11:42 PM

Derrick Rose (elbow) returned from a two-game absence to score 12 points on 5-of-15 shooting vs. the Grizzlies, with eight assists, five rebounds and five turnovers.

Rose played 35 minutes but his poor shooting and turnovers did nothing to help the Bulls' offense, which managed just 30 points in the paint vs. 44 for the Grizzlies. The combination of DNPs and inefficiency have conspired to ruin Rose's fantasy season, as he's on pace to finish just outside the top-200 for 9-cat value (top-140 in 8-cat).
Apr 5 - 10:52 PM

Derrick Rose (elbow) will play against the Grizzlies on Tuesday.

Rose missed the last two games with an injury to his non-shooting elbow, but said he is ready to play against the Grizzlies on Tuesday night. While his status could change, it sounds like it's safe for fantasy owners to slot Rose back into their lineups on Tuesday.
Apr 5 - 1:48 PM

Derrick Rose (elbow) is questionable for Tuesday against the Grizzlies.

He's been out for his last two games due to this nagging non-shooting elbow problem. Rose is likely going to be a game-time call and figures to be limited upon his return. Fantasy owners may not want to bother waiting for Rose.
Apr 4 - 2:11 PM

Derrick Rose (elbow) has been ruled out for Sunday's game vs. the Bucks.

With Rose unavailable on Sunday, E'Twaun Moore will draw the start with Jimmy Butler and Pau Gasol being asked to do a bit more on offense. Butler owns a 31.2 usage rate sans Rose, so he makes for a quality DFS target tonight with a favorable matchup against Milwaukee. For now, we'll be considering Rose questionable for Tuesday's game in Memphis.

Derrick Rose (elbow) will be a game-time decision for Sunday's game vs. the Bucks.

Rose remains doubtful to play, but he's going to go through his pregame routine before making an official decision. If he plays, Jimmy Butler and Pau Gasol won't be quite as active offensively. For what it's worth, Fred Hoiberg said he was not optimistic about Rose being able to give it a go.
Apr 3 - 5:34 PM

Derrick Rose (elbow) and Taj Gibson (ribs) are doubtful to play Sunday vs. the Bucks.

Rose tends to sit out if he's not 100 percent, so owners should plan on being without his services on Sunday night. E'Twaun Moore will likely draw the start in his absence, while Jimmy Butler and Pau Gasol will do the heavy lifting on offense. Butler's usage rate jumps to 31.2 sans Rose, so he'll make for a strong DFS target with a favorable matchup against Milwaukee.

Derrick Rose (elbow) will not play against the Pistons on Saturday and E'Twaun Moore will start in his place.

An MRI confirmed he had swelling in his elbow, so this is not a surprise. Rose could miss more games, especially since he hasn't even played well lately. Moore is a decent punt play in DFS while Aaron Brooks backs him up. Rose is a cut candidate for owners needing active bodies right now.
Apr 2 - 7:17 PM

Derrick Rose (elbow) is "most likely" out against the Pistons on Saturday, according to coach Fred Hoiberg.

It's not a surprise because the coach made the call in not playing Rose in the second half on Thursday. E'Twaun Moore figures to get the start, but he won't be too active with Jimmy Butler running the offense. Aaron Brooks figures to get 20 minutes off the bench.
Apr 2 - 6:19 PM

Derrick Rose (elbow) is still considered doubtful for Saturday's game vs. the Pistons.

He made it through parts of the morning shootaround, but an MRI showed some swelling on his elbow. This is a must-win game for the Bulls, but it sounds like Rose will listen to his body and sit this one out. With Rose expected to be on the shelf, Jimmy Butler will run the offense and Aaron Brooks and E'Twaun Moore should see more minutes as well.
