Derrick Rose started in place of the "injured" Jimmy Butler on Saturday night and delivered 16 points in 21 minutes of action.
The Wolves listed Butler's wrist injury as the reason for his absence tonight. Rose has been running with the starters in camp as of late and it looks like we could have a Thibs special on our hands. Non-shooters who aren't pure distributors from the point guard spot typically don't get much leeway in today's NBA but there's a special set of circumstances here. Rose went 6-of-10 from the field with two steals and a triple, but he cannot be considered as a fantasy asset outside of deep leagues.
