The Wolves got bogged down in drama, taking a step back while incorporating some new faces

Reggie Jackson scored 15 points and added two rebounds, four assists, a steal and a three in Friday's win over the Cavs.
Jackson has some major competition at point guard this season with Derrick Rose now on the team. Rose also put up 15 points, along with three rebounds, an assist and a block. If Jackson isn't playing well, coach Dwayne Casey may opt for Rose to finish games. They may also play alongside each other in the backcourt. Jackson and Rose are low upside point guards available towards the end of standard-league drafts.

Dwane Casey plans to dial back Derrick Rose's minutes in Friday's preseason game.
Feel free to pivot away from Rose in DFS tonight. Luke Kennard, Tony Snell and Svi Mykhailiuk stand to benefit with the extra minutes open on the wing but it's going to be a mish-mash roster tonight with Blake Griffin out.

Derrick Rose came off the bench to score 18 points on 8-for-12 shooting, dish five assists and grab two rebounds in Wednesday night's win over the Mavs.
Rose wasn't able to hit his lone three-point attempt on the evening but overall looked much more efficient than Reggie Jackson, who had 13 points on 4-for-11 shooting.

Coach Dwane Casey said that he will more so monitor Derrick Rose's minutes rather than give him days off this upcoming season.
Rose was a feel-good story last year with the Wolves and will look to provide a punch off the bench with the Pistons this season. With Reggie Jackson in front of him, Rose could see more opportunities than usual, though Casey may ultimately not want to push it.

The Pistons have officially signed Markieff Morris, Derrick Rose and Tim Frazier.
The Pistons had a fairly low-key free agency but will bolster their second unit in a big way with the additions of Rose and Morris. They also did a nice job keeping the cap clear, with Frazier and Morris checking in at $2 and $3.6 million respectively on one-year deals, with Rose making $15 million over two seasons. Rose is the player who is closest to the fantasy radar but is only a late-round play.

Derrick Rose and the Pistons have agreed to a two-year deal worth $15 million, per Adrian Wojnarowski.
Rose will give the Pistons minutes as a reserve combo guard, though it's feasible that he pushes Reggie Jackson for time. Detroit needed more capable ball-handlers and playmakers, so this is a decent fit even if Rose isn't helping the team's lack of shooting. There's late-round potential in Detroit, but we would bet against Rose repeating his career-best efficiency from last season.

Derrick Rose and the Pistons are "motivated to finding a pathway" to a two-year contract when free agency opens, per Adrian Wojnarowski.
The lengths to which everyone is going to avoid tampering charges are hilarious. Rose will give Detroit a scoring guard off the bench, though he'll fit right in with most of the other Pistons as a guy without a trustworthy jumper. He could have late-round appeal with room to grow if Reggie Jackson gets hurt or traded, but Rose will not be one of our recommended fantasy targets next season.

Frank Isola of The Athletic is reporting that the Pistons are emerging as the favorite to sign Derrick Rose.
The Pistons were connected to a number of point guards earlier this summer, and while it is an obvious position of need it is curious that they'd add yet another player who can't really shoot. If he does land in Detroit, Rose will give the second unit some much-needed scoring punch, however. We'd be stunned if he could repeat last season's top-110 output given all the opportunities and hot streaks he had in Minnesota. Rose is recovering from surgery to remove bone chips in his right elbow but is expected to be ready for next year.

Though Derrick Rose's season was cut short by a right elbow issue that needed surgery, he still revived his career and posted top-105 per-game value.
Rose averaged 18.0 points, 4.6 assists and 1.1 threes, but most important was the fact that he shot .482 from the field. He rode some crazy 3-point shooting to a big start out of the gates and was able to improve his 2-point game as he predictably regressed from behind the arc. Rose also missed 12 games with right ankle issues (not consecutively) before sitting the last 15 with that elbow problem, and he ended up as a top-170 player in terms of total value. His stat set still has some issues but Rose's good start meant he had plenty of leash as his efficiency was propped up. We wouldn't bet on a repeat, but you never know.

Derrick Rose underwent arthroscopic surgery to remove bone chips from his right elbow.
Rose is out indefinitely, though he had already been ruled out for the rest of the season.

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 (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 (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.
