Derrick Rose is still undecided about attending Team USA minicamp.
He is weighing the benefits of taking time off before the start of training camp. Rose's injury history suggests that time off could be a good thing. He's also going to have to learn a new system and will likely play at a faster tempo. Rose wasn't even in the top 175 for per-game value in standard fantasy leagues last year, so he's not someone fantasy owners should target aggressively. Aug 1 - 5:11 PM

Coach Fred Hoiberg is hopeful Derrick Rose will benefit in an up-tempo style.

"I think he and Jimmy Butler have the ability to be as good a backcourt as any in the NBA," Hoiberg said. "They can play off of each other. That's what we'll try to do, get that thing moving, get that thing up the floor, and get our guys playing unselfish basketball." Rose isn't used to playing in an up-tempo style, but being in the open floor could cut down on his contested mid-range jumpers. There should be more fantasy goodness to go around in Chicago.

Derrick Rose vowed to push himself harder than he ever has before this offseason.

"I'm healthy. I'm going into this [offseason] with a game plan, certain things to work on," said Rose. "I feel like I'm going to push myself the hardest I ever pushed myself in my career and just see where it takes me for the beginning of next year." It's nice that Rose was finally able to put together a healthy playoff run after spending the past three postseason's on the sidelines. However, his lowly field goal percentage (40.5), limited contributions to the defensive categories (0.7 steals), lengthy injury history, and high turnover rate (3.2 turnovers per game) will make him a tough guy to target in next year's fantasy drafts.

Derrick Rose was affected negatively by Jimmy Butler producing his offense on Rose's side of the floor, according to Dan Bernstein of CBS Chicago.

"Sources describe a passive-aggressive reaction from Rose that was the culmination of tensions building in recent weeks with Butler’s emergence as a primary scorer," the report said. "Butler is very aware that he won his bet on himself and is poised to reap the reward of a maximum contract from the Bulls, whether or not it takes an offer sheet from another club in restricted free agency this summer." During media interviews, Rose has been pretty stoic, so it's tough to completely buy into this scenario. Regardless, expect Butler to be with Rose next season.

Derrick Rose said that his body feels good and that he is ready to get back to work this summer.

"I wouldn't say I played my best but I played very well sometimes," Rose said. "It's all about being consistent and staying in the gym and preparing myself. That's one thing I think I did well was prepare myself for every game, even though I didn't always perform the way I want to perform. My body felt good. So it's all about just going back in the lab this summer and putting my game back together and see where it takes me." Rose finished the postseason with averages of 20.3 points, 6.5 assists, 4.8 rebounds, 1.2 steals and 1.9 three-pointers per game, but he was very inefficient and will have his work cut out for him this summer. His injury history will make him a tough player to target in fantasy drafts.

Derrick Rose acknowledged after Chicago's season-ending Game 6 loss to the Cavs, that he was happy to end the 2014-15 season relatively healthy.

"I always look at me stepping on the floor and me walking off the floor as a positive," Rose said. "Of course, I would want to win every game. It’s the NBA; you are not going to win every game. I’m happy with how my body responded when I came back, I’m happy with everything I learned this year, what I went through individually, mentally, emotionally, spiritually." Rose finally had a healthy playoff run, averaging 20.3 points, 6.5 assists, 4.8 rebounds, 1.2 steals and 1.9 three-pointers per game. However, after spending so much time on the sidelines over the past three years, he'll remain a risky selection in next year's drafts.

Derrick Rose disappeared down the stretch during a 94-73 season-ending loss to the Cavs on Thursday, scoring 14 points with two rebounds, six assists and two turnovers.

The Bulls did not turn to Rose much in the second half. In fact, he only had four shots from the field for two points in that span. He also didn't get to the line in this abysmal loss. Chances are his days with coach Tom Thibodeau are over, but it shouldn't affect his role with the Bulls. While his knee injury will probably go down as the main story from this past season for Rose, he was extremely inefficient. In the playoffs, the bad games nearly tripled the good one from Rose. We'll need to see an epic preseason from Rose to sign off on him as a target in drafts.

Coach Tom Thibodeau said Derrick Rose (shoulder) is fine.

He'll be ready to play on Thursday night in a do-or-die game in Chicago. Rose did have some trouble putting on a hooded sweatshirt on Tuesday, so it will be worth monitoring on Thursday. Meanwhile, he is really struggling with his shot with a field goal percentage of just 37.8 in his last five, but he's kept his turnovers down to just 2.0 per game in this series.
May 13 - 3:13 PM

According to Mike McGraw of the Daily Herald, Derrick Rose's shoulder was a problem after Game 5 as he was having a hard a time putting his hoodie on.

Rose scored 12 of his 16 points in the first quarter, so it's possible that his shoulder became worse throughout the game. He also tweaked his right wrist on Tuesday, but Rose said that he won't make excuses and he is expected to be fine moving forward. Sirens are going to go off every time Rose gets hurt, but he is fully expected to be good to go for Thursday's must-win game vs. the Cavs.
May 13 - 9:28 AM

Derrick Rose needed 24 shots to score 16 points on Tuesday, adding nine rebounds, seven assists, three steals, one block and only one turnover in 43 minutes of action.

Rose was hot to begin the game but he was bothered by a right wrist injury and his shoulder is still a problem, and we'll monitor both issues in the lead-up to the Bulls' must-win Game 6. It's been great to watch D-Rose recapture his elite form in the playoffs and NBA fans should clear their schedules for Thursday's must-watch game in Chicago.
May 12 - 9:56 PM

Derrick Rose had another terrific game on Sunday, scoring 31 points on 11-of-23 shooting (7-of-7 from the stripe), to go with two 3-pointers, two rebounds, four assists and two turnovers through 41 minutes of action.

Whelp, we can go ahead and do away with the one-day of rest narrative. Rose looked fresh and he had more than a few highlight-reel plays, however the Bulls self-destructed in the fourth quarter, giving away seven-point lead and ultimately falling to the Cavs. Rose's 47.8 percent shooting from the field was the best he's shot so far through the Bulls' second-round series, and he's been taking advantage of a hobbled Kyrie Irving (foot) every time he draws the matchup. Rose will look to keep his momentum going heading back to Cleveland for Game 5 on Tuesday.
May 10 - 7:32 PM

Derrick Rose's fingerprints were all over the Bulls' 99-96 Game 3 win over the Cavs -- both good and bad -- as he finished with 30 points, seven boards, seven assists, one steal, one block and a game-winning bank shot three from way beyond the 3-point arc.

So that was obviously the good. The bad was that he hit just 10-of-26 shots and his shot selection was as bad as anything we've seen in these playoffs. It's a recurring theme for Rose as he's playing like he doesn't have other options to turn to, with the leash of a current MVP, and the effectiveness that is nowhere near reflecting that. We are very happy for him to have this moment after bouncing back from so many injuries, but soberly analyzing the game the Bulls are hurting themselves not asking for more balance.
May 8 - 11:59 PM

Derrick Rose made 6-of-20 from the field for 14 points against the Cavs during a 106-91 loss in Game 2 on Wednesday, adding seven rebounds, 10 assists, one block and two 3-pointers.

He still hasn't been to the line in this series while Kyrie Irving has been there 21 times. Coach Tom Thibodeau addressed this after the game. "I guess he's gotta go harder," Thibodeau said. "Looks like there's a lot of contact to me." Rose continues to play poorly on one day of rest while he's been very good in each of the four games with more than one day off. Unfortunately for the Bulls, Game 3 is on Friday, so Rose will need to figure out how to buck this trend.
May 6 - 9:46 PM

Derrick Rose said that he hasn't felt any lingering effects from his shoulder injury, and he is ready to go for Game 2 against the Cavaliers on Wednesday.

Rose was never really in danger of missing any action, but it's nice to have confirmation that he is feeling better well before tip-off. Rose scored 25 points with five boards, five assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in Game 1, and he will try to help the Bulls take a commanding 2-0 series lead over the Cavaliers tonight. Get him in your lineup.
May 6 - 10:15 AM

Derrick Rose (shoulder) will play in Game 2 against the Cavaliers on Wednesday.

Rose's status was never really in doubt after he suffered a shoulder stinger during Monday's Game 1 win, but it's nice to get early confirmation that he'll be able to play. Rose has had a strong showing thus far in the playoffs and should be started in all playoff fantasy games as long as he's healthy.
