Derrick Rose scored 21 points (8-of-21 shooting) with four rebounds and two steals.
You can really ask for much more out of Rose, who's been a top-85 asset all season as the unexpected last man standing in the Detroit backcourt. Rose, or "Old Kendrick Nunn" as we like to call him, will continue to pour in points with nary a stat elsewhere, but tonight's modest peripherals were a nice touch. He's fine to roster, but rest-of-season value may not be guaranteed. Look to sell.

Derrick Rose shot 12-of-17 from the field on his way to scoring 27 points with nine assists in 26 minutes on Saturday.
Rose is a must-own player in standard leagues and the short-handed Pistons continue to lean on him heavily for his offense. Rose is in a great situation and his value could take a hit if he is traded, but owners shouldn't worry about that in the meantime.

Derrick Rose dropped 22 points on 11-of-13 shooting on Wednesday night, while adding two boards, six assists and a block in his 29 minutes of play.
Rose has been as consistent producer for fantasy owners and sits comfortably inside the top-100. The Pistons are banged up and don't have many go-to options at this point. Rose will certainly be a benefactor of this.

Derrick Rose played a game-high 37 minutes in Monday's 110-117 loss to the Pelicans and scored 23 points on 10-of-23 shooting to go with four rebounds, eight assists and a block.
Rose lead the team's younger players in the final period and OT as Coach Casey has shown he wants him to be the No. 1 option on this team. His play has warranted this type of approval as well so treat Rose as the top-90 option he's played as.

Derrick Rose led the Pistons in scoring on Saturday with 20 points (7-of-11 from the floor), seven assists and two threes in 29 minutes.
Rose has been hot since the start of the new year, shooting 49 percent from the field and scoring 22.5 points per game. Rose is inside the top-100 on the season and should stay there the rest of the season as the Pistons continue to rely on his scoring and play making.

Derrick Rose led the Pistons bench on Thursday with 27 points on 13-of-24 shooting to go with seven rebounds and five dimes.
Rose is having another solid season and is taking full advantage of the fact that the Pistons are decimated by injuries. He's going to be a solid play for the remainder of the year, especially with half of the starters without a timetable to return.

Derrick Rose was the Pistons' leading scorer with 24 points (9-of-21 FGs, 4-of-4 FTs), and he added three rebounds, seven assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes in a road win over the Cavs on Tuesday.
Rose is having his best season in quite a while, and he's trending in the right direction, especially with the Pistons losing scorers quickly. He should have a good shot to stick in middle-round territory for the remainder of the season. Starting guards Svi Mykhailiuk and Bruce Brown contributed to the win with four 3-pointers from Svi and seven assists from Brown.

Derrick Rose played well against the Lakers on Sunday as he put up 28 points on 10-of-19 shooting in 29 minutes.
Rose got to the line frequently in this game and made all 10 of his attempts. He added three rebounds, five assists, one steal and one block to the box score. Due to the constant injuries that the Pistons have been facing, Rose is a steady top-100 option whenever he suits up.

Bruce Brown played through an illness on Thursday and scored a team-high 15 points, also chipping in six assists and a steal in 30 minutes.
Brown has shown time and time again that he's the only reliable guy in this shorthanded version of the Pistons backcourt (not counting Derrick Rose). Svi Mykhailiuk and Tony Snell each started and scored 14 points with two threes while Rose had 14 points and six dimes on 5-of-15 shooting. It's not pretty.

Bruce Brown (illness) is being listed as questionable ahead of Thursday's game with the Clippers.
The Pistons are beat up right now, and Blake Griffin (doubtful) is likely to miss this game as well. If Brown can't go, Tim Frazier would likely slide into the starting lineup and see a ton of usage while coach Dwane Casey may be more inclined to bump Derrick Rose's minutes up for a night. The latter isn't a given though as the team has been very cautious with Rose this year.

Derrick Rose said on Monday night that he feels he can handle more minutes, but the descision is not up to him.
Rose has averaged just 24.4 mpg on the season after averaging 27.3 mpg for the Wolves in 2018-19. Given Rose's extensive injury history, it's understandable that the Pistons want to limit the grind on Rose's body. If it were up to Rose, though, he would be on the court saying, "Of course, I want to be out there, but I guess they see something I don’t, and they’re worried about me.”

Derrick Rose put up 24 points (10-for-17 FG), three rebounds, four assists, four steals and two triples in 27 minutes on Saturday night.
The efficiency won't always be there but Rose has an easy path to big minutes and plenty of shots with the state of Detroit's guard rotation these days. Luke Kennard and Reggie Jackson are out indefinitely and there's no other player that's a real threat to Rose's workload. He's a fine play in all formats until further notice, as long as you're looking for mostly points and occasional contributions elsewhere. Langston Galloway is in a similar boat and put up 15 points (6-of-9 FG) and three triples tonight, though he's still more of a 14-16-team player.

Bruce Brown will play on Thursday vs. the Wizards but will come off the bench in his first game back after dealing with bilateral calf soreness.
Tim Frazier and Svi Mykhailiuk will start in the backcourt. Brown will come off the bench and will likely have his minutes monitored in his first game back. The only guard for the Pistons that is currently worth starting in standard leagues is Derrick Rose.

According to head coach Dwane Casey, Bruce Brown will "give it a go" on Thursday vs. the Wizards after dealing with bilateral calf soreness.
All indications point to Brown suiting up on Thursday which will lower the values of Derrick Rose, Svi Mykhailiuk and Langston Galloway. Rose is the only player of these four that is startable in standard league formats.
