    Fantasy NBA Today: Shutdown Season

    Injuries are everywhere, but are they even real? Does it even matter? Aaron Bruski and Dan Besbris tackle the shutdown season's official start, and take questions from the chat! (03-22-19) SUBSCRIBE on iTunes Follow¬†@DanBesbris on…

  • Derrick Rose - G - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Derrick Rose (sore right elbow) will officially miss the rest of the season.

    With the Wolves not in the hunt for a playoff spot anymore, resting Rose seems like the best option for them since they have nothing to play for. It was a successful season nonetheless for Rose whose fantasy value was more than what we expected because of his 3-point streak.

  • Derrick Rose - G - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Derrick Rose (sore right elbow) has been ruled out of Thursday's matchup with the Hornets.

    Rose is looking like a drop candidate, with the Wolves having little incentive to push the veteran through any health issues. Tyus Jones could be a league-winning player down the stretch and needs to be rostered in all formats if he wasn't already. It was a largely successful season for Rose, though most of his fantasy value was carried by a wild 3-point shooting streak early in the year.

  • Derrick Rose - G - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Derrick Rose (sore right elbow) is out for Tuesday's game against the Warriors.

    Fire up Tyus Jones again as both Rose and Jeff Teague have been ruled out of this contest. Jerryd Bayless and Cam Reynolds will continue to see around 20 minutes off the bench.

  • Derrick Rose - G - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Derrick Rose (sore right elbow) is doubtful for Tuesday's game against the Warriors.

    With Rose doubtful and Jeff Teague out it's once again time to get Tyus Jones in your lineup if you need assists and steals.

  • Derrick Rose - G - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Derrick Rose (right elbow soreness) will not play on Sunday night against the Rockets.

    Fire up Tyus Jones. Rose doesn't look like a shutdown candidate but things could change quickly, so it might be wise to start looking for alternatives. Jerryd Bayless and Cam Reynolds will also chip in off the bench.

  • Derrick Rose - G - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Derrick Rose (right elbow soreness) was able to do "some things" at Saturday's practice and will be questionable heading into Sunday's game with the Rockets.

    Rose has missed the last two games but with news of Jeff Teague leaving the team to get his foot checked out, Rose is worth holding onto if you can. He and Tyus Jones will hold down the point guard spot with Teague on the shelf, and standard-league value should be in the cards as long as Rose can stay on the court.

  • Derrick Rose - G - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Derrick Rose (right elbow soreness) will not play on Thursday against the Jazz.

    This will be Rose's second straight absence, and fantasy owners might be forced to cut bait. The team has little to play for and Rose has been slowing down after a throwback run earlier in the year, so a shutdown might be in order if he can't take some steps forward soon. Tyus Jones, Jerryd Bayless and Cam Reynolds will hold down the PG spot tonight with Jeff Teague also out, and Jones is looking like a nice short-term pickup that could quickly become something much more valuable.

  • Derrick Rose - G - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Derrick Rose (right elbow soreness) is questionable to play on Thursday.

    Rose missed Tuesday's game after playing only eight minutes in Sunday's SEGABABA, and there's no telling how much longer he'll be out. With Jeff Teague also ailing, Tyus Jones might be in for a big finish if Minnesota goes the shutdown route. They've said that there won't be any tanking or shutdowns for Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins, but that might not be the case for veterans with nagging injuries.

  • Derrick Rose - G - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Derrick Rose (right elbow soreness) will miss Tuesday's game against the Nuggets.

    With Jeff Teague also out, it's going to be a big night for those of you with Tyus Jones on your rosters. Jerryd Bayless is also going to get back into the mix as well, and with the Wolves having little to play for we could see them take it easy on Teague and Rose until they're truly 100 percent again. Jones makes for a nice short-term add, while Bayless is best left to deeper leagues.

  • Derrick Rose - G - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Derrick Rose (right elbow soreness) is questionable to face the Nuggets on Tuesday.

    Rose, Jeff Teague, Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins are all questionable tonight for the Wolves. If Rose and Teague can't go, Tyus Jones would get the start. If the aforementioned players can't go there will be a ton of usage and shots to go around.

  • Derrick Rose - G - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Derrick Rose suited up for Sunday's game and put up four points on 2-of-5 shooting in just eight minutes of action against the Knicks.

    Rose was hopeful to play in the second part of a back-to-back, which he was able to do but he was obviously limited as he only saw eight minutes. He should see more minutes next game and bounce back.

  • Derrick Rose - G - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Derrick Rose hopes to play on Sunday after logging over 30 minutes on Saturday.

    That's right up on the threshold of Rose's maximum, but the Wolves will probably want him in action — especially with some doubts about the statuses of Andrew Wiggins and Karl-Anthony Towns. Rose should be fine for today but checking back for an official confirmation wouldn't hurt.

  • Derrick Rose - G - Minnesota Timberwolves

    With Andrew Wiggins out on Saturday with a left quad contusion, Derrick Rose took it upon himself to help out Karl-Anthony Towns on offense and chipped in 29 points on 13-of-23 shooting.

    Rose also added three rebounds, three assists and one steal to the box score. Jeff Teague had an off night with seven points on 2-of-14 shooting, one rebound, eight dimes, one trey and one steal. While the Wolves are not at full strength, expect Rose to rise to the occasion and produce for them on offense.

  • Derrick Rose - G - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Derrick Rose was limited to scoring eight points on 4-of-9 shooting with one rebound and two assists in 19 minutes on Wednesday.

    Rose has been a top-140 player in 9-cat over the last couple of weeks, so this dud will only serve to drag down his value. He needs high usage and a lot of touches in order to pop in fantasy. Jeff Teague played a solid 30 minutes and dropped 15 points, three rebounds, eight assists, two 3s and one steal.
