Derrick Rose (knee surgery) will not return this season, but he has recently been going through non-contact portions of the Bulls' practices.
This is an encouraging update on Rose's progress after knee surgery, but it shouldn't trigger any theories about a surprise return in the playoffs -- Rose isn't planning to play competitively until the summer. Mar 26 - 1:34 PM

Derrick Rose (knee surgery) will not return for the 2013-14 playoffs.

The Bulls have already said that Rose would not return this season, but coach Tom Thibodeau was posed with the question again on Monday. "No," Thibodeau answered. "He's doing a little bit more, he's coming along (and) doing some things in practice. But he's out for the year." Rose is aiming for a return at this summer's World Cup of Basketball, so unless owners are in leagues that give out extra points for international competitions, any discussion of his fantasy value will have to be put on hold until the 2014-15 season.

Derrick Rose (knee surgery) is hoping he'll be healthy in time for this summer's World Cup of Basketball.

"If my leg is feeling healthy and I’m there, I’m all in," Rose said about Team USA. "Of course I want to play for that team. Playing for that team [in the summer of 2010], I think it helped the year I won MVP, just getting in a groove. So I’m excited if I am able to play in it." Like the Bulls, fantasy owners who own the 25-year-old in dynasty leagues are probably cringing at the thought of Rose risking injury in anything but an NBA game. However, Rose still hasn't been cleared to practice by the Bulls, so this could be a bit of wishful thinking by the former MVP.

Derrick Rose (knee) has been doing more running but is "not close right now," Tom Thibodeau said on Monday,

Coach Thibodeau has probably had it with answering Rose questions by now and he won't be returning to game action during the regular season. Rose does have a chance to join some practices, so he should be as 100 percent as he can be for next season.
Mar 10 - 2:34 PM

Derrick Rose (knee) has been doing some running on an anti-gravity treadmill.

Coach Tom Thibodeau said multiple times Rose will not play again this season, so this news doesn't impact his outlook until next year. The former MVP' should be good fine for 2014 draft season, but there will obviously be a ton of risk involved.
Feb 26 - 6:36 PM

Derrick Rose (knee surgery) is not targeting a possible return for the 2014 playoffs.

Rose had seemingly kept the possibility of a return open when he last spoke to the media on December 6th, but doesn't seem to think that's a possibility anymore. "I’m not keeping it [playing] open," Rose said. "I just said right now I haven’t thought about it. I can’t think about it right now. I’m not running yet. When I get off the Alter G [anti gravity treadmill], that’s when I’ll consider coming back." We'll be updating Rose's rehab as it progresses, but any owners who were holding out hope for a return this season can close the door on those dreams.

Derrick Rose (knee) said on Wednesday he is still not running yet.

He said his rehab for his meniscus tear is going well, but he has no idea on how long he'll be out. "I'm not keeping it open," Rose said about the idea of possibly returning. "I haven't thought about it. I can't think about it right now." He's likely out for the year, but is hoping to play in Team USA camp over the summer.
Feb 12 - 8:50 PM

Derrick Rose (knee) is not expected to practice at all with the Bulls this season.

Rose did practice a ton with the Bulls last season as he came off his ACL tear, but never got into a game. This time around, he won't even mess around with that. Rose, who is out for the year thanks to his latest knee surgery, is just getting shots up with teammates after practice.
Feb 11 - 12:55 PM

Derrick Rose was selected to Team USA's 28-player pool for the next three summers and may play in this summer's World Cup of Basketball.

After Thursday's selection, Rose said, "I'm looking forward to getting back on the court this summer and having the chance to represent our country." While that statement doesn't affect Rose's 2013-14 fantasy season, his dynasty league owners and Bulls management can't like it one bit. It's great to see that he's feeling healthy enough to make statements about potentially playing for Team USA, but a full summer of grueling international competition might not be the best thing in terms of his rehab for the 2014-15 NBA season.
Jan 23 - 1:30 PM

Coach Tom Thibodeau said Derrick Rose (knee) is starting to shoot during his rehab.

The coach added his star guard has a long way to go. Rose is expected to be out for the season, but there's still a small chance he can return from his meniscus tear. There is very little reason to stash Rose considering how long it took him to get back from his ACL surgery.
Jan 22 - 9:50 PM

Derrick Rose (knee) has resumed traveling with the Bulls.

This is the first time that Rose has traveled with the team since injuring his knee on November 22nd. "The crutches are gone," coach Tom Thibodeau said. "He’s moving around a lot better. So it’s time." Thibodeau also added that he didn't want to speculate on whether Rose would practice with the team this season, but reiterated that he will not return this season. It's encouraging to see Rose improving for dynasty owners, but this news unfortunately does nothing to wash the bad taste out of owners' mouths who drafted him for just this season.
Jan 16 - 10:43 AM

Derrick Rose (knee) is doing well in his rehab and could resume traveling with the Bulls in a few weeks, according to coach Tom Thibodeau.

To be clear, this doesn't affect Rose's original six-month timetable. He suggested in early December that he might return for the playoffs if he's "healthy and the situation is right," which is mildly encouraging for Bulls fans but irrelevant for fantasy purposes.
Jan 13 - 12:27 PM

Derrick Rose (knee) hasn't ruled out returning for the playoffs if he is "healthy and the situation is right."

What that "right" situation might be is unclear, but this news still doesn't change the fact that Rose won't be making a difference on any fantasy rosters in 2013-14. This is, however, good news for Rose's dynasty league owners as the 25-year-old believes his rehab process will be smoother this time around and he should be ready to go when the 2014-15 season begins.

Derrick Rose's rehab from meniscus surgery is expected to take approximately six months, according to GM Gar Forman.

This is in line with expectations after Rose was ruled out for the season. His meniscus was repaired and he'll have about 11 months before opening day of the 2014-15 season, so ideally we'll get to see the former MVP at full strength for an entire season.

Derrick Rose will miss the rest of the 2013-14 season after having his torn medial meniscus repaired on Monday.

Rose's decision to repair the meniscus, rather than remove it, should help prolong his career. Dwyane Wade had his meniscus removed, for instance, and he said earlier this month, "My knee problems and the things I've dealt with started from that. That was [11] years ago and technology was different and the way you approach things was different." For the duration of this season Chicago will ask Kirk Hinrich to play heavy minutes at PG, making him a likely source of fantasy value, with Marquis Teague serving as his primary backup.
