Derrick Rose (back) is out on Saturday against the Nuggets.
Rose practiced on Friday, but will sit out for the second game in a row on Saturday. He will have a couple of days to get ready, since the Knicks don’t play again till Tuesday. Brandon Jennings will start in his place and is a solid DFS option against the high-paced and defensively mediocre Nuggets squad.
Update: This does not bode well for the often injured guard. Jennings may be worth the stash if he is available in your league.
Hornacek said Rose still felt tight during shootaround and felt he was close to having more back spasms.
