Rose scored 27 points (8-18 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 8-8 FT) and added four assists, two rebounds, and one steal in 39 minutes during Thursday's 119-112 loss to the Wizards.

Rose has responded well after posting a season-low three points Monday. In the two games since, he has shot 15-33 from the field, a 45.5 percent mark that is a slight improvement over his season-long average of 44.2. Before Thursday, Rose had totaled just three made three pointers on the season, so owners should not expect to see him suddenly turn into a steady source of threes. That said, Rose maintains considerable value as a scorer, passer, and rebounder. He is averaging 14.7 points, 4.6 assists, and 4.3 threes per game
