Rose (foot) will not play during Thursday's tilt against the Trail Blazers.
Rose sustained a foot injury during Wednesday's loss to the Jazz, but was able to return later in the game. Though it appeared the injury was only minor, the Knicks are opting to hold him out of the second half of their back-to-back. Ron Baker and Chasson Randle will likely absorb most of his playing time at point guard.
Rose suffered a sore right foot in Wednesday's loss to the Jazz, but X-rays came back negative, Frank Isola of the New York Daily News reports.
Rose was able to return after picking up the injury in the third quarter, finishing the night with 17 points (7-12 FG, 3-3 FT), six assists and one rebound in 32 minutes. While it looks like his injury is only a minor concern, the non-contending Knicks could opt to hold him out of the second half of the back-to-back set Thursday against the Trail Blazers. Expect the Knicks to make an official call on Rose's status in the hours leading up to the 10:00 p.m. ET tip time, but if he ends up sitting out, Ron Baker and Chasson Randle would likely cover most of the minutes at point guard.
Rose finished with 18 points (6-11 FG, 6-6 FT), five assists and four rebounds over 28 minutes in Monday's 114-105 loss against the Clippers.
Rose is averaging 18.3 points with 4.3 assists and 4.3 rebounds over the past four outings. He isn't killing it from a fantasy perspective, but he is performing slightly better than his overall season averages lately. He and the Knicks will face a tough test Wednesday in Salt Lake City against the No. 1 scoring defense of the Jazz.
Rose contributed 22 points (7-17 FG, 8-9 FT), two rebounds and two assists across 33 minutes during Thursday's 121-110 loss to the Nets.
Even with Thursday's 22-point performance, Rose hasn't been playing particularly well over the past four games, averaging 16.5 points on 42.9 percent from the field, 2.8 rebounds, and 2.5 assists across 32.3 minutes per game. Though fantasy owners likely weren't expecting great passing numbers from Rose this season, 2.5 assists per contest is a poor stretch by anyone's standards. In fact, he's only had one outing this season where he's tallied double-digit assists, dishing out 11 dimes Nov. 4 against the Bulls, his former team. He continues to be a solid producer of points for those who have him on their fantasy roster, but doesn't do it particularly efficiently (46.4 percent from the field and 21.7 percent from three) or accumulate many other statistics -- averaging just 4.4 assists, 3.9 rebounds, and 0.7 steals on the season.
Rose scored 26 points (13-16 FG) while adding six assists and one rebound across 32 minutes in Wednesday's 104-93 loss to the Bucks.
Rose was extremely efficient from the floor Wednesday, missing just three shots en route to tying his season-high for made field goals in a game at 13. The consecutive games of six assists is nice to see as well given he hasn't done much besides produce points for the Knicks this season, but he showed Wednesday night with his team-high scoring output why he needs to be owned in the majority of fantasy leagues.
