Derrick Rose (illness) is not traveling with the Bulls for Friday's game against the Grizzlies.
He could travel on his own, but we would consider Rose doubtful to play. After playing 11 in a row, he's going to miss his second consecutive game. The former MVP is the most annoying player to own and his owners have probably checked for updates more than any other player. Aaron Brooks is worth a look in a sub-par matchup. Dec 18 - 11:31 PM

Derrick Rose (illness) will not play against the Knicks on Thursday.

He was questionable for the game due to an illness and this will snap his 11-game streak of playing in games -- his longest since his ACL tear. Rose should be considered questionable for Friday against the Grizzlies. Meanwhile, Aaron Brooks is an interesting option as a plug-and-play guy. Kirk Hinrich will likely start.

Derrick Rose (illness) is questionable for Thursday night's game against the Knicks.

Besides the fact that Rose has played in 11 consecutive games, the silver lining here is that his questionable status has nothing to do with his knees. We'll update his status as soon as we know more, but Rose looks to be headed towards a game-time decision for Thursday's game. If Rose sits against the Knicks, Kirk Hinrich and Aaron Brooks would become viable plug-and-play options while Jimmy Butler would also see an uptick in his fantasy value.
Dec 18 - 12:35 PM

Derrick Rose made 6-of-17 from the field for 14 points with five rebounds, eight assists, one block and six turnovers in 32 minutes.

Coach Tom Thibodeau wanted Rose to be aggressive, but he had six mid-range attempts tonight and was careless with the ball. Poor game aside, it's nice to see Rose on the court for 11 consecutive games, so his fantasy owners should have some confidence in him on a nightly basis. Rose hasn't been in the top 150 for standard leagues per-game fantasy value.
Dec 16 - 12:31 AM

Tom Thibodeau wants Derrick Rose to be more aggressive in the fourth quarter.

"Just put it in my mind: It’s still the fourth quarter no matter what the score is I still have to be myself in the fourth quarter," said Rose. "Thibs always tells me I should be more aggressive in the fourth no matter what the score of the game is. Just getting those reps; shooting mid range, getting my floater game together." Rose added that he wasn't mentally prepared for his previous comeback, but this time around "it's totally different. I'm at peace with myself."
Dec 15 - 9:58 AM

Derrick Rose has now played in 10 straight games.

This wouldn't be news under ordinary circumstances, but as we all know, Rose's circumstances aren't ordinary. "I'm good," he said. Looking at a lot of film, seeing what I can do better, what defenses are giving me. I'm still not getting double-teamed yet, so that's a good thing." Rose had just 14 points and three assists in Sunday's win, and he's averaging 17 points, 3.1 rebounds, 4.9 assists and 1.7 3-pointers this year.
Dec 15 - 9:47 AM

Derrick Rose couldn't build on his momentum from Friday's 31-point outburst, finishing Sunday's road win with 14 points and three assists in 27 minutes.

Tom Thibodeau continues to be conservative with his starting PG's playing time, which makes perfect sense, and fantasy owners should still be ecstatic about Rose's averages over the past three games -- 22.7 points, 3.0 rebounds and 4.0 assists per game. His utter lack of defensive stats takes a big chunk out of his value in 8-cat and 9-cat leagues, where he's only a top-100 value so far this year (on a per-game basis).
Dec 14 - 8:56 PM

Derrick Rose scored a season-high 31 points on 14-of-24 shooting with three rebounds, five assists and one steal in the Bulls' 115-106 win over the Blazers on Friday.

Rose has been a mess this season and averaging just 0.6 combined steals and blocks on the year he's returning just top 90-150 value (8/9 cat) in standard leagues. On a deep team, he's not getting the volume necessary to float his poor peripherals, and if you want to get out from under his risk this is probably a good time. As an aside, he'll probably lift those valuations a bit as long as he stays relatively healthy.
Dec 12 - 11:01 PM

Derrick Rose said he's feeling great both mentally and physically after Wednesday's win over the Nets.

That might be the best news Rose's fans and fantasy owners have heard in two years. "I just feel great. My body is healthy. My mind is good. My spirit is good," Rose said. "Just trying to keep it going and know that when I have bad games like last game, they're going to happen." Rose has the potential to be a top fantasy player, but his owners may want to investigate selling high now that he's coming off a strong performance after playing eight consecutive games.
Dec 11 - 10:38 AM

Derrick Rose hit 8-of-15 shots for 23 points, four rebounds, four assists and three 3-pointers in Wednesday's win over the Nets.

Rose hit just 2-of-11 shots for nine points in his previous game on Saturday, but has been playing well outside of that one. He's played in eight straight games and with a day off before Friday's game against the Blazers, he's looking to make it nine straight. If he can somehow stay healthy the rest of the way, the early headaches will have been worth it. However, selling him off before the next string of missed games happens is probably the smart plan of action.
Dec 10 - 11:59 PM

Derrick Rose made 2-of-11 from the field for nine points with four rebounds, six assists and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday.

He's played at least 26 minutes in five consecutive games, averaging 15.4 points, 4.2 rebounds, 5.4 assists, 2.2 triples and no steals on 37.0 percent from the field in that span. Rose is still struggling to his his shot consistently and we're getting closer to 2015. He's going to need to get really hot to justify his ADP on draft day.
Dec 6 - 11:44 PM

Derrick Rose made it through Wednesday's second game of a back-to-back and had 15 points, two rebounds, five assists and two 3-pointers on 5-of-12 shooting.

This is kind of a big deal for Rose and he appears to have passed the test. That doesn't mean that we're out of the woods with him and his hamstring injury, but signs are pointing toward Rose continuing to play in the near future.
Dec 3 - 10:08 PM

Derrick Rose (hamstring) expects to play in Wednesday's game but said that it "depends on how [he's] feeling."

Rose's status is never clear-cut so this shouldn't surprise fantasy owners, and we're unlikely to get a definitive update until the Bulls go through pre-game warmups. He finished Tuesday's double-overtime loss with 18 points (6-of-20 shooting), four 3-pointers, five rebounds, 10 assists and seven turnovers, and made a wild 3-pointer that beat the buzzer to send the game into double-OT. He's been tentative lately but looked more confident tonight, and we can only hope he keeps it going in the second half of Chicago's back-to-back set.
Dec 3 - 12:22 AM

The Chicago Bulls are expecting Derrick Rose (hamstring) to be available for both games of their back-to-back set on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Sunday marked the first time this season that Rose has been able to play consecutive games, so finishing a back-to-back would be a huge step for the 26-year-old. "We just want him to keep building," Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau said. "That’s the big thing. He’s moving in the right direction. We always felt if he strung some games together he would take off. And I think we’re seeing that." Fantasy owners should plan on having their star guard available for both games, but any change to Rose's status will push Aaron Brooks and Kirk Hinrich back into fantasy relevancy.
Dec 2 - 1:41 PM

Tom Thibodeau said Derrick Rose has been "very, very productive" when able to take the floor.

Rose has played in just nine games so far this season and is averaging 16.1 points, 3.0 rebounds, 4.6 assists and 1.6 3-pointers in 25.5 minutes per game. Those numbers should rise as Rose's confidence and health improve, but nothing is certain with the point guard at this stage. "As he strings some games together, the rust will come off, his conditioning will improve, and then we need a team discipline, and a team discipline only comes through work and practice and being together," Thibodeau said.
