Derrick Rose scored 12 points Saturday on 5-of-9 shooting as the Cleveland Cavaliers lost to the Oklahoma City Thunder 148-124. Rose grabbed two rebounds and dished out three assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -1 in his 21:10 on the floor.
Derrick Rose scored nine points Thursday, going 3 of 6 from the field, as the Cleveland Cavaliers topped the Orlando Magic 104-103. Rose pulled down three rebounds and added an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of +5 in his 13:13 on the floor. He added one block.
Advice: Rose returned after missing more than two months with ankle injuries.
Rose (ankle) will return Thursday against the Magic. He's only played seven games this season and none since Nov. 7.
Advice: Rose is expected to play limited minutes off the bench, so his impact will likely be minimal.
Derrick Rose scored nine points with three rebounds, one assist and one block in 13 minutes against the Magic on Thursday.
Advice: He played fairly mistake-free ball, but Rose wasn't really running the offense and stood in the corner a bunch. With Isaiah Thomas back in action and the Cavs second unit having some capable scorers, it's going to be really tough for Rose to produce value in even 16-team leagues while the team is healthy.
Derrick Rose (ankle) and Iman Shumpert (knee) practiced on Wednesday.
Advice: Rose said he thinks he'll be able to give it a go on Thursday against the Magic, but he wants to test his ankle at shootaround before making an official decision. That said, as long as the Cavs are healthy, neither of these guys will be on the floor enough to make an impact in fantasy hoops.
Derrick Rose might return to the Cavaliers in the next game or two, according to Marv Albert (via Tyronn Lue) on the TNT broadcast Monday night.
Advice: Rose last played on Nov. 7 and we should have more details on Tuesday, but with Isaiah Thomas back for the Cavs, Rose's role is expected to be fairly limited, if he's even healthy enough to play. Stay tuned.
Derrick Rose (ankle) has been ruled out for the remainder of Cleveland's road trip.
Advice: Rose is getting close, but he won't play Thursday in Toronto or Friday in Indiana. Maybe he'll be able to get back out there for Cleveland's home game against Golden State on January 15, but with Isaiah Thomas back in action, Rose is unlikely to earn enough minutes with the Cavs to have any impact in fantasy hoops. Leave him on the wire.
