President Phil Jackson said Derrick Rose told him he'd like to return to the Knicks and Rose wants a chance to redeem himself.
It looks like Jackson wants to bring back Rose and try to trade Melo, which shows just how differently he's thinking compared other successful NBA front office execs in 2017. Chances are some team is going to overpay for Rose this summer. Apr 14 - 3:13 PM

Derrick Rose said he would "love" to stay in New York, but will explore all possibilities in free agency.

Rose had a better than expected season in 2016-17, but underwent surgery to repair a torn medial meniscus earlier this month, so he will likely have a difficult time finding suitors willing to offer a long-term deal for significant money. Rose may have to settle for a shorter "make good" contract this summer. Coach Jeff Hornacek has said recently that the Knicks would consider bringing him back.
Apr 14 - 1:18 PM

Derrick Rose (knee) underwent a left knee arthroscopy for a medial meniscus tear on Wednesday.

He is expected to make a full recovery and will begin basketball activities in 3-6 weeks. Rose had some problems with his left knee this season, and this is the same knee that needed an ACL repair -- he also tore a meniscus in his right knee.
Apr 5 - 2:28 PM

Derrick Rose suffered a torn meniscus in his left knee and has been ruled out for the remainder of the season.

Unreal. Coach Jeff Hornacek recently said he was hopeful to have Rose back in the lineup soon, so it sounds like this diagnosis caught the Knicks by surprise. This injury will require arthroscopic surgery (his fourth knee surgery) at the worst possible time as he's set to hit free agency this summer. The surgery will be scheduled in the near future and his recovery time is expected to be 6-8 weeks. Ron Baker and Chasson Randle will handle the PG duties the rest of the way.
Apr 2 - 1:03 PM

Derrick Rose (sore left knee) will not play on Sunday vs. the Celtics.

It's not a lock that we will see Rose again this season. Ron Baker has been getting the bulk of the PG minutes lately, but he's just a low-end option in deeper formats. Chasson Randle will play a handful of minutes off the bench.
Apr 2 - 11:21 AM

Derrick Rose (sore left knee) will not play Friday vs. Miami.

This is the second straight game Rose has missed due to the knee issue. Ron Baker started at point guard on Wednesday and logged a game-high 40 minutes, but wasn't overly productive (six points, five boards and three assists). Chasson Randle played 21 minutes off the bench on Wednesday.
Mar 31 - 6:42 PM

Derrick Rose (sore left knee) will be a game-time decision for Friday night's matchup with Miami.

Coach Jeff Hornacek said that both Rose and Carmelo Anthony (back) will "try to go at shootaround and see how they feel." If Rose, who also missed Wednesday's game due to the knee injury, is unable to play Friday, Ron Baker would likely draw another start. Baker played 40 minutes on Wednesday, finishing with six points, five boards and three assists. Chasson Randle also logged 21 minutes on Wednesday.
Mar 31 - 11:02 AM

Derrick Rose (sore left knee) will not play against the Heat on Wednesday.

This is not the same injury as his sore foot from over the weekend and Rose has a litany of knee injuries, so this could be a multiple-game absence. He'll be too risky to own in fantasy the rest of the way. We'll see plenty of Ron Baker in the starting lineup while Chasson Randle backs him up. Neither are great fantasy options. Daily Slant: With Rose and Thomas off the floor this season, Carmelo Anthony leads the Knicks with a 37.9% usage rate, a massive 6.7% bump from his season total. There has been some talk about the Knicks easing up on Melo down the stretch run, but he appears to be a full go this evening. We should also see Ron Baker pick up extra court time, although he's not all that appealing with Melo and Porzingis still active.
Mar 29 - 5:52 PM

Derrick Rose is not being listed as a starter in the game notes for Wednesday's matchup with Miami.

The game notes list Ron Baker as New York's starting point guard, but it's worth pointing out that the game notes are notoriously unreliable, and this report is stemming from Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinal and not a New York beat reporter. We should have a better idea on Rose's status following Wednesday morning's shootaround, but if both he and Carmelo Anthony are indeed rested on Wednesday night, Kristaps Porzingis would see a nice uptick in usage.

Derrick Rose finished with 27 points, six assists, four rebounds and a steal with zero turnovers over 33 minutes in Monday's 109-95 win against the Pistons.

Rose has looked good in two outings since resting his ailing foot, averaging 25.5 points with 5.5 assists and 4.5 rebounds while hitting 22 of his 39 field goal attempts. The point guard is always a possibility to rest down the stretch, especially with the Knicks all but eliminated from the race for a playoff spot. Tread lightly.
Mar 27 - 10:51 PM

Derrick Rose (foot) scored 24 points with five rebounds, five assists and one turnover against the Spurs on Saturday.

Considering he had Kawhi Leonard on him quite a bit during this game, this is a positive for Rose. His sore foot that kept him out for the last game looked like a non-issue, as well. There's always risk of Rose resting and he usually doesn't play when he's banged up, so he'll be a tough player to rely on the rest of the way, especially because the Knicks will likely be eliminated from the postseason on Monday. Start him at your own risk with four games next week.
Mar 25 - 11:16 PM

Derrick Rose, Courtney Lee, Mindaugas Kuzminskas, Kristaps Porzingis and Willy Hernangomez will start against the Spurs on Saturday.

It sounds like Rose should be fine, but we'll see how long the he lasts in what is shaping up to be a blowout.
Mar 25 - 8:26 PM

Derrick Rose (foot) is available to play against the Spurs on Saturday.

The "available to play" tag can be a little worrisome, especially when it's on a tanking team and for Derrick Rose. Rose has also said he doesn't care too much about free agency because he saved his money, so that's a whole different story. There are a lot of red flags on Rose, so most owners may just want to steer clear. Ron Baker and Chasson Randle will lose playing time, assuming Rose is a full go.
Mar 25 - 7:06 PM

Derrick Rose said he will test his sore right foot at shootaround to see if he will be able to play Saturday night vs. the Spurs.

Rose, who injured his foot Wednesday night and did not play Thursday vs. the Blazers, is listed as questionable in the game notes. This may come down to a game-time decision. Ron Baker and Chasson Randle would split minutes at point guard if Rose is unable to play.
Mar 25 - 11:53 AM

Derrick Rose (sore right foot) will not play against the Blazers on Thursday.

He suffered the injury late on Wednesday night and was limping after the game. Rose missing a game due to injury is nothing new and he could miss more time as he approaches free agency this summer. The Knicks should get a look at Chasson Randle and Ron Baker tonight, but both are not really great fantasy adds unless Rose is ruled out for multiple games.
