  • Cavaliers' Derrick Rose: Likely out Saturday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Rose is considered doubtful for Saturday's game against the Magic due to a sprained ankle, Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com reports. Rose injured his ankle early in the fourth quarter of Friday's victory over the Bucks. He finished the contest with 12 points (3-4 FG, 6-6 FT), two rebounds, one assist, and two steals across 23 minutes. The Cavs' are thin on point guard depth until Isaiah Thomas (hip) returns, but Dwyane Wade, Iman Shumpert, and J.R. Smith all figure to benefit from Rose's absence, should he ultimately sit out, while LeBron James should handle the majority of the ball-handling duties.

  • Rose posted 14 points (5-14 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT), four rebounds and two assists across 31 minutes in Tuesday's 102-99 win over the Celtics. In his first regular season game as Cleveland's starting point guard, Rose had a decent game but was definitely not dishing the ball like a floor general should, as his two assists were dwarfed by LeBron's nine dimes. Rose is effectively a placeholder for Isaiah Thomas (hip), and it looks like Cleveland will keep this situation fluid until December, with Dwyane Wade and J.R. Smith also shouldering duties in the backcourt. We'll still see Rose starting, but on bigger slates, one can find many more appealing options at the position.

  • Rose will be back in the lineup for Tuesday's preseason matchup with the Bulls, Cavaliers play-by-play announcer Fred McLeod reports. Rose, as well as the majority of the Cavaliers' regular contributors, all got the night off Sunday against the Wizards, but will be back in the lineup on Tuesday. Look for Rose to start at point guard as is expected to begin season, though he'll likely get an early hook in the first quarter, as coach Tyronn Lue hopes to have Rose come back in and run the second unit when the other starters come out later in the first quarter.

  • Rose will sit out Sunday's preseason matchup against the Wizards for rest, Dave McMenamin of ESPN reports. Rose joins nine other Cavalier players sitting out Sunday's contest, as the team looks to give much of their regular rotation a night off for rest. While Rose should be back in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Bulls, guys like Jose Calderon and Kay Felder should get the majority of the work at point guard Sunday.

  • Rose recorded 15 points (5-8 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), three assists, three rebounds and one steal across 14 minutes in Friday's 106-102 loss to the Pacers. Rose begins the season as Cleveland's starting point guard, a position he'll continue to hold until December when he will eventually give way to Isaiah Thomas (hip). Rose's role on the team beyond that point is cloudy at best, and the former Knick may have to become accustomed to a reserve role, a position he is quite unfamiliar with. Friday's outing shows he is as capable as ever and warrants a solid add in all formats while Thomas is sidelined.
