  • Derrick Rose - G - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Derrick Rose scored 23 points (0-for-3 from deep) to go with six assists and a turnover in Friday’s 116-113 loss to the visiting Spurs.

    Rose also hit all 11 of his freebies in 27 minutes. Aside from the bum ankle keeping him bouncing in and out of the lineup, Rose has had a very nice bounce-back season with top-70 season-long value in 8/9-cat. Jeff Teague added 15 points, one 3, six assists and a steal and has been around the top-100 since returning from his ankle injury.

    Derrick Rose (right ankle) shot 6-for-13 from the field for 15 points with two boards, four assists and one 3-pointer in 22 minutes against the Sixers on Tuesday.

    Rose was removed from the injury report leading up to the game, which is a good sign moving forward. The Timberwolves were getting crushed all night, limiting minutes for all significant contributors. Rose is a solid hold in standard leagues.

  • Derrick Rose - G - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Derrick Rose (right ankle) is available to play in Tuesday's game against the Sixers.

    Rose was expected to play after his Saturday absence was deemed precautionary on the second leg of a back-to-back. He's good to get back into all lineups and will cut into Tyus Jones' playing time.

    Derrick Rose (right ankle) is expecting to play against the Sixers on Tuesday.

    Rose returned from a six-game absence on Friday but was rested on Saturday for what the Wolves called "precautionary reasons." It sounds like he's good to go even though he's technically questionable, although you'll want to check back later for final confirmation.

  • Derrick Rose - G - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Derrick Rose (ankle) is being listed as questionable on Tuesday vs. the 76ers.

    Rose just returned from a six-game absence to play in one game and then missed Saturday's game again with an ankle injury. The Wolves were saying that it was just a precautionary move so there's a chance that Rose plays on Tuesday. If he doesn't though, then Tyus Jones will be the backup point guard and he's been amazing as of late. Josh Okogie will also get some more time at the SG spot if Rose misses Tuesday's game.

  • Derrick Rose - G - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Derrick Rose (right ankle) has been ruled out of Saturday's game.

    The good news is that the team is calling it a precautionary move with Rose having just returned from a two-week absence last night. Sitting him on the back end of a back-to-back is the safe move. Tyus Jones will be the backup point guard tonight while Josh Okogie will get some more run at the shooting guard spot after he only played 23 minutes on Friday with Rose back.

  • Derrick Rose - G - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Derrick Rose (right ankle sprain) is questionable to face the Pelicans on Saturday.

    Rose made his return on Friday after a six-game absence and was right back to where he left off with 21 points, three rebounds, five assists, three triples and a block, shooting 8-of-16 from the field and 2-of-2 from the line in 28 minutes. If he does sit this one out, it will likely be because the Wolves don't want to put him in a back-to-back game after he just returned from a two-week absence.

    Derrick Rose (right ankle sprain) has officially been upgraded to probable for Friday's game against the Mavs.

    The Wolves have been expecting Rose to play on Friday for the last few days so this is just an official update. Rose has had a very nice season so far and it's great to see him get back to being a productive NBA player who's inside the top-70 in 8/9-cat. Unfortunately, nagging injuries have caused Rose to miss nine games this season. Assuming Rose does play on Friday, the Wolves also have a game on Saturday and there's a good chance he sits for the second leg of a back-to-back.

    Derrick Rose expects to play in Friday's game against the Mavs.

    Rose will return to the bench now that Jeff Teague is back on the court. It has been a true renaissance season for him in many regards, but we'll be focusing in on how the point guard rotation plays out under new coach Ryan Saunders to see if he'll still hold mid-round value.

    Derrick Rose (right ankle sprain) is listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Mavericks.

    Rose was playing good basketball before his injury, but that was with Jeff Teague out. Rose will likely return to his sixth man role when he does return, which will cut into his production. We'll see if new coach Ryan Saunders gives Rose the same love that Tom Thibodeau did. Saunders said he does want to push the pace, however, which will help every player.

  • Derrick Rose - G - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Derrick Rose (right ankle sprain) said he will not play on Tuesday but will return on Friday.

    If that's true, Rose will end up missing six games with his injury. Tyus Jones has one more night of guaranteed minutes ahead of him, though it's going to be worth watching how new coach Ryan Saunders divvies up the minutes between Rose, Jones and Jeff Teague. Rose was obviously a Thibs favorite and Jones was relegated to third-string duties, but perhaps a new coach with an eye towards the future will make a concerted effort to give Jones minutes. Rose is a hold and likely to finish the season with standard-league value, but it's something to watch just in case.

    Both Derrick Rose (ankle) and Robert Covington (knee) will remain out vs. the Lakers on Sunday.

    Rose will miss his fifth straight game with this ankle injury and Covington will be re-evaluated at the end of the week. However, Covington is still expected to miss multiple weeks with the bone bruise. Both Rose and Covington are essential to the Wolves winning games and they'll need them back as soon as possible if they want to make any type of playoff push. With Rose and Covington out look for Tyus Jones and Josh Okogie to be the biggest beneficiaries.

    Derrick Rose (right ankle sprain) is listed as questionable to play against the Lakers on Sunday.

    Rose's return does not seem too far off as the questionable tag is better than the doubtful tag he was originally given for Friday's game. Rose made headlines yesterday as the first round of All-Star voting currently has him as a starter and he remains a hold in fantasy leagues for his top-70 production.

    Derrick Rose (right ankle sprain) will not play on Friday.

    Rose was upgraded to questionable earlier in the day, so it's possible that we see him return in the near future. With Jeff Teague back and Tyus Jones playing well, perhaps the Wolves feel compelled to dial back on Rose's minutes upon returning, or even give him an extra game off to recover even further. Just kidding, Thibs is calling the shots. Rose remains a hold in all leagues and should go back in all lineups once he does get back on the court.

    Derrick Rose (right ankle sprain) has been upgraded to questionable for Friday's game against the Magic.

    It's been a renaissance season for Rose in many regards, but as we've grown accustomed to, there are some injury issues that have cropped up of late. With Jeff Teague returning, we have to assume Rose will have less value overall when he does return.
