An MRI on Rose's ankle returned negative, and the Pistons will re-evaluate him "in a few weeks," Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports. Rose landed awkwardly on his right ankle during Sunday's loss to Sacramento, and the 31-year-old is now set to miss extended time as the Pistons run out the clock on what's been a frustrating season. Rose figures to miss at least the next two-to-three weeks, at which point Detroit will have to assess whether it's worth bringing him back for the stretch run.
Rose (ankle) is without a timetable after exiting Sunday's game against the Kings, Rod Beard of the Detroit News reports. Rose departed the game in the second quarter with what appeared to be a sprained ankle and did not return. After the game, coach Dwane Casey said Rose was no longer in a walking boot, but he declined to state how much time he expects the guard to miss. The Pistons have two off days before Wednesday's game against the Thunder, but it's relatively unlikely that Rose will be ready for that contest.
Rose left Sunday's game against the Kings due to a right ankle injury and is questionable to return, Rod Beard of the Detroit News reports. Rose appeared to land awkwardly on the ankle during the second quarter of Sunday's game, and he immediately headed to the locker room for treatment. At this point, the severity of the injury is unclear, but it's encouraging that a return has not been ruled out.
Rose posted 31 points (15-24 FG, 1-2 3Pt), four assists, three rebounds, two steals and one block across 30 minutes during Friday's 113-111 victory over the Suns. Rose had an excellent two-way effort Friday, notably tying his season-high 31 points. It was also the first time Rose has seen at least 30 minutes since Jan. 31. Across the past three contests, he's averaging 22.0 points, 4.0 assists, 2.3 rebounds and 1.3 steals.
Rose posted 20 points (6-14 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 7-7 FT), five assists, two rebounds and two steals in 27 minutes during Tuesday's 115-98 defeat at Denver. Rose had his best performance of the current month based on his scoring totals, as he has reached the 20-point mark for the first time since Jan. 31, but the shooting woes have continued since he returned from the groin injury that forced him to miss five straight contests. In five games since returning to action, Rose is making just 32.8 percent of his shots and 14.3 percent of his three-point attempts.
