Rose finished with 17 points (7-11 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six rebounds and four assists in 32 minutes during Monday's 119-100 loss to the Rockets. In what was a disappointing loss for the Wolves, Rose once again played well off the bench. He has been very aggressive on the offensive end of the floor, finding his way to the basket with regularity. The Wolves have gone small to matchup with the Rockets which has afforded Rose some additional playing time at the expense of Taj Gibson. The Wolves need to win Game Five in Houston on Wednesday if they hope to extend the series.
Rose produced 17 points (8-16 FG, 1-2 3Pt), two assists and two steals in 21 minutes during Saturday's 121-105 victory over Houston. Rose attempted the second-most amount of shots on the Wolves roster, finishing with 17 points in 21 minutes. He made a crucial three-pointer late in the game and despite his obvious flaws, seems to have garnered himself some additional playing time over players such as Tyus Jones and Jamal Crawford. Game Four is on Monday at the Target Center and he will look to continue his offensive resurgence.
Rose provided 16 points (7-14 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four assists and two rebounds across 24 minutes during Minnesota's 104-101 loss to the Rockets in Game 1 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series. Rose was a pleasant surprise for the Timberwolves on a night when both Karl-Anthony Towns and Jimmy Butler turned in rather lackluster efforts. The veteran point guard struggled with an ankle injury late in the regular season, but he did flash some upside with a 13-point effort over 22 minutes against the Grizzlies in the penultimate game of the campaign. Sunday's effort was even more encouraging, with Rose's number of shot attempts checking in second only to Andrew Wiggins on the Timberwolves. Rose's usage is likely to fluctuate as the series unfolds, but his Game 1 production affords him some DFS punt play consideration heading into Wednesday's Game 2.
Rose (ankle) is available for Friday's contest against the Lakers. As expected, Rose has been cleared to take the floor after being listed as probable. He'll presumably take on his usual bench role, where he often sees between 10-20 minutes.
Rose (ankle) is listed as probable for Friday's game against the Lakers. Rose returned from a six-game absence Thursday against the Nuggets and played 15 minutes off the bench, finishing with four points on 2-of-5 shooting.
