    Bulls' Aaron Brooks: Receives minutes bump with injury to Derrick Rose

    Brooks scored 13 points (5-12 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT) with six assists, three steals, and two rebounds over 33 minutes in an 89-84 loss to the Heat on Monday. Derrick Rose departed Monday's game with lower back and right hamstring injuries, paving the way for Brooks to gain increased court time in the second half. While the jury is still out on the extent of Rose's injury, the Bulls are also dealing with injuries to Kirk Hinrich (quad) and E'Twaun Moore (hamstring). While Brooks hasn't posted noteworthy fantasy numbers this season, he could be a sneaky DFS play if Rose misses Thursday's match-up against the Lakers.

    Bulls' Aaron Brooks: Hands out 10 assists in win

    Brooks recorded six points (3-7 FG, 0-1 3Pt), 10 assists, two rebounds, and one steal across 21 minutes in Monday's 111-101 win over the Pistons. With starting point guard Derrick Rose limited to 27 minutes Monday and Kirk Hinrich (quad) unavailable, Brooks saw some added run off the bench and was able to parlay it into his highest assist total of the season. Brooks may continue to rank as the Bulls' top point guard off the bench once Hinrich returns, but since Rose usually plays over 30 minutes per contests, there's little opportunity for Brooks to post notable numbers.

    Bulls' Aaron Brooks: Scores five points Sunday

    Brooks produced five points (2-6 FG, 1-3 3Pt), six rebounds, and two assists across 25 minutes in Sunday's 115-113 win over the Raptors. Predictably, Brooks has fallen back to earth since exploding for 29 points over 41 minutes in Wednesday's game against the Pacers. In fact, he's failed to even provide half that level of production in his last two contests, collecting a combined 12 points in 38 minutes. Brooks still has more scoring upside than Kirk Hinrich, who has been filling in as the starting point guard while Derrick Rose (knee, hamstring) remains sidelined, but because Brooks can't be counted on to see regular playing time, he's a very volatile fantasy option.

    Bulls' Aaron Brooks: Scores game-high 29 points Wednesday

    Brooks contributed 29 points (11-20 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 3-4 FT), five assists, one rebound, and one steal in 41 minutes during the Bulls' 102-100 overtime win over the Pacers on Wednesday. Brooks came off the bench behind Kirk Hinrich with Derrick Rose (hamstring) sitting out, but it was Brooks who scored a game-high 29 points while playing the second most minutes on the team behind Jimmy Butler. Hinrich meanwhile saw only 13 minutes of action. Brooks is the much better offensive player, but Hinrich has the defensive savvy Brooks doesn't, so it's hard to be sure what Bulls' coach Fred Holberg will opt for if Rose is forced to miss Friday's game against the Knicks.

    Bulls' Aaron Brooks: Scores 17 off the bench Saturday

    Brooks scored 17 points (6-11 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding three assists and a rebound in just 19 minutes off the bench during Saturday's win over the Pelicans. After not seeing the court in three straight games, Brooks has responded with 27 points in 40 minutes over the last two contests, both Bulls wins. His November hamstring injury might have has something to do with that lack of usage, but he appears to be healthy now and Fred Hoiberg will likely keep feeding him minutes as long as he's providing an offensive spark on the second unit.

    Bulls' Aaron Brooks: Doesn't play for third straight game

    Brooks (coach's decision) didn't leave the bench for the third straight game in a 105-100 loss to the Celtics on Wednesday. Though he's healthy now after missing multiple games in late November and early December with a hamstring injury, Brooks finds himself fourth on the depth chart at point guard behind Derrick Rose, Kirk Hinrich, and E'Twaun Moore. Unless one of the players above him suffers an injury, Brooks doesn't figure to get run off the bench on most occasions.

    Bulls' Aaron Brooks: Scores two points in return

    Brooks (hamstring) returned from a four-game absence Wednesday against the Nuggets and posted two points (0-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-3 FT), three assists, two rebounds, and one block in nine minutes. Brooks hasn't seen enough minutes in the rotation this year to be worth owning in most formats, so even though he's back in action, he can be ignored for the most part. He'll only see things open up for him if Derrick Rose were to miss time.

    Bulls' Aaron Brooks: Game-time call Wednesday

    Brooks (hamstring) will be a game-time call for Wednesday's matchup with the Nuggets, KC Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports. Brooks has missed the last four games with a left hamstring strain, and he remained limited at practice Tuesday. While reports Tuesday afternoon suggested that Brooks would likely be held out, he's been upgraded to questionable, though a final ruling likely won't come until just before game-time. If Brooks is ultimately ruled out, E'Twaun Moore figures to see increased minutes off the bench, particularly with Kirk Hinrich unlikely to play.

    Bulls' Aaron Brooks: Likely out against Nuggets Wednesday

    Brooks (hamstring) was a limited participant in Tuesday's practice, but will most likely sit out on Wednesday against the Nuggets, Nick Friedell of ESPN.com reports. Brooks has missed five of the last six contests for the Bulls, battling a strain in his left hamstring. With Kirk Hinrich (hip) likely to miss Wednesday's game as well, E'Twaun Moore will likely pick up the lion's share of the minutes at backup point guard.

    Bulls' Aaron Brooks: Brooks ruled out for Monday's game

    Brooks (hamstring) has been ruled out of Monday's matchup with the Spurs, K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports. Brooks has reportedly been showing some improvement recently, but considering he was ruled out a day in advance, it could mean he's still further away from a return than originally believed. His next opportunity to play will be Wednesday versus the Nuggets, but don't be surprised to see him sit again as he continues to work back from his hamstring injury. With Kirk Hinrich also questionable, E'Twaun Moore could see a ton of extra minutes.
