Derrick Rose scored 13 points with two rebounds, four assists and one turnover in 32 minutes against the Cavs on Thursday.
The Knicks reportedly tried to unload Rose at the deadline, but they couldn't get any takers. There were some reports that teams are concerned Rose will want too much money next season, which isn't surprising based on how he hasn't even come close to living up to his current contract. His fantasy value has been better than expected, but he's still only a low-end guy at best. Feb 23 - 11:52 PM

New York and Minnesota talks for a Derrick Rose trade have "stalled significantly," according to Shams Charania of The Vertical.

This is music to the ears of Wolves fans. There is a chance Rose is still dealt, but the Knicks are not getting many bites on their expiring Rose contract. For now, expect Rose to stay put today.
Feb 23 - 2:44 PM

Derrick Rose sat out the scrimmage portion of Wednesday's practice.

There's no injury to report here, so this is just going to add more fuel to the fire on the Rose trade speculation. The Knicks are reportedly actively shopping Rose, and he's received some interest around the league, with Tom Thibodeau being one of his more noted advocates. Rose hasn't been anything more than a late-round guy this season, and that's unlikely to change based on his jersey. His assist-to-turnover ratio is embarrassing, and he brings very little defensive stats to the table.

Wolves coach Tom Thibodeau is reportedly making a push to strike a deal for Derrick Rose.

Thibs reported infatuation with Rose is a bit strange, but it does sound like a trade between New York and Minnesota involving Rose and Ricky Rubio could be brewing. This is a situation we'll be monitoring closely as the deadline approaches.
Feb 21 - 6:02 PM

According to Ian Begley of ESPN, the Wolves have inquired about the availability of Derrick Rose.

The Wolves are "among several teams" to reach out to the Knicks regarding a potential Rose deal, but it's not clear what Minnesota is offering. Rose will be a free agent this summer, so the Knicks will have to keep their asking price down. Rose played seven seasons under coach Tom Thibodeau, so he should be able to hit the ground running if he was moved to Minnesota. However, unless Ricky Rubio is part of the proposed deal, Rose would lose a lot of fantasy value on the Wolves.

Multiple teams view Derrick Rose as a potential trade target, according to ESPN's Ian Begley.

While Carmelo Anthony rumors continue to swirl, ESPN reports that Rose is attracting some attention from other teams in need of point guard help. Rose has been putting up impressive numbers of late. Over the Knicks last four games, Rose is averaging 19.0 points (on 57.9 percent shooting), 5.3 assists and 4.5 rebounds. If he is traded, his fantasy value would likely take a hit, as Rose would probably see fewer minutes and a reduced usage rate on a new team.
Feb 17 - 10:38 AM

Derrick Rose stayed hot on Wednesday, hitting 11-of-21 shots for 25 points, but it wasn't enough to avoid a road loss to the Thunder.

Rose heads into the All-Star break on an upswing, having averaged 19.0 points on 33-of-57 shooting (57.9 percent) in his past four games. He rounded out tonight's line with seven assists, four rebounds and two steals in 38 minutes, which is all his owners can ask for.
Feb 16 - 12:40 AM

Derrick Rose returned to form on Wednesday with 20 points on 10-of-16 shooting, eight assists, seven rebounds and one steal in 37 minutes.

Welcome back, D-Rose. He had just five points in 32 minutes on Monday but didn't look rusty tonight, taking full advantage of the absence of Chris Paul to score 20 points for the first time since Jan. 23. He was playing very well prior to the injury, but we're still too leery of his health to view him as a guy to actively target.
Feb 9 - 1:52 AM

Derrick Rose (ankle) returned from a four-game absence in Monday's blowout loss to the Lakers, but he struggled mightily with five points on 2-of-8 shooting.

Rose turned the ball over three times and added four boards and three assists as the Knicks lost their fourth game out of their last five. The Knicks are shopping Carmelo Anthony and they're on the verge of a full-blown rebuild, and Derrick Rose hinted that he could be on the way out as well. "Im on a one-year deal so I can't talk that much about it," Rose said. "The rebuild could be me going, too. I don't know. My job is to focus whenever I'm on the court, just try to win games, try to be positive, try to get better." There's no reason to think that Rose would benefit from a potential trade and his contract is almost impossible to move anyways, so this shouldn't be a concern of fantasy owners right now.

Feb 6 - 10:49 PM

Derrick Rose (ankle) will return to action for Monday's game against the Lakers.

Rose's return to the lineup will send Brandon Jennings' back to the bench, and Jennings' value will take a decent sized hit with the demotion. Rose has missed the past four games, but he got in a full practice on Sunday and there's been no discussion of a minutes limit, so feel free to get him active.
Feb 6 - 5:23 PM

Derrick Rose (ankle) went through a full practice on Sunday and head coach Jeff Hornacek said he's confident Rose will be back in action on Monday vs. the Lakers.

Rose has spent the past four games on the sidelines, but it sounds like he'll be back in action on Monday night, which will queue the end of Brandon Jennings' run with the starting unit. Owners can expect to get another update following Monday morning's shootaround.
Feb 5 - 2:12 PM

Derrick Rose (ankle) will not play against the Cavs on Saturday night.

He did go through some warmups, so at least he's getting closer. Rose is perhaps one of the slowest healers in the NBA because he's extra cautious, so he could miss additional time. With him out, Brandon Jennings gets another start and could have a nice game against Kyrie Irving. We'll see some more of Ron Baker and Justin Holiday as well.
Feb 4 - 6:45 PM

Derrick Rose (ankle) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Cavs.

Rose has missed three straight games. On Thursday, Rose told reporters that "every day it's improving." However, coach Jeff Hornacek said on Friday after practice that he doesn't think Rose will be able to play on Saturday. If Rose is sidelined on Saturday, Brandon Jennings will draw another start in his place. Jennings is averaging 16.7 points, 6.3 assists, and 4.0 rebounds over 37.6 minutes in games he has started this season.
Feb 3 - 1:02 PM

Derrick Rose said that his left ankle sprain is making progress.

"Everyday it’s improving," Rose said on Wednesday. "Not rushing it. Getting a lot of treatment. I’m resting everyday and I’m out the boot today so it’s a lot of progression." Rose has missed three straight games and his status for Saturday's game vs. the Cavaliers is up in the air. Brandon Jennings has posted some inefficient lines in the starting lineup, but he's worth streaming until Rose returns.
Feb 2 - 9:31 AM

Derrick Rose (ankle) will not play Wednesday vs. the Nets, as expected.

He just recently shed his walking boot, and head coach Jeff Hornacek said that the plan is for Rose to practice on Friday and play Saturday vs. the Cavs. As for tonight, Brandon Jennings will get another start, and he's someone to consider throwing out there as a streamer or DFS punt play with a favorable and uptempo matchup against the Nets. Carmelo Anthony will run the show on offense.
