  • Knicks' Derrick Rose: Unlikely to return this season

    Knicks head coach Tom Thibodeau expressed pessimism Monday when asked about Rose's (ankle) chances of playing again in 2021-22, Marc Berman of the New York Post reports. "I don't know [if there's time for Rose to return this season]," Thibodeau said. "I don't know -- he's been out a long time. He hasn't taken contact on. He's ramped up his conditioning but hasn't taken contact on. That's a big thing."

    Though Rose was believed to have taken a step forward in practice last week, Thibodeau admitted Monday that the 33-year-old's conditioning was still an issue. With Rose having yet to be cleared for contact and the Knicks having been eliminated from contention for the play-in game, the veteran guard seems unlikely to push for a return in the final week of the season. Assuming that's the case, Rose will finish with averages of 12.0 points, 4.0 assists, 3.0 rebounds, 1.4 three-pointers and 0.8 steals in 24.5 minutes per game over 26 appearances in the second season of his second stint with the Knicks.

  • Knicks' Derrick Rose: Still not practicing

    Knicks head coach Tom Thibodeau said Sunday that New York's medical team still hasn't cleared Rose (ankle) for practice, Ian Begley of SportsNet New York reports.

    Rose underwent a minor procedure at the end of February to address a skin infection on his surgically repaired right ankle and was initially expected to miss 1-to-2 weeks. However, two weeks have passed and the veteran point guard still hasn't been cleared for practice. Thibodeau said that once Rose is cleared, he'll need to re-start the conditioning process before being cleared for game action. In the meantime, Alec Burks and Immanuel Quickley should continue to see increased run with Rose sidelined and Kemba Walker no longer in the mix.

  • Knicks' Derrick Rose: Still not cleared for practice

    Rose (ankle) was at the Knicks' morning shootaround Friday, but he still hasn't been cleared for basketball activities, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.

    Rose underwent a minor procedure a week ago to address a skin infection on his surgically repaired right ankle and was initially expected to miss 1-to-2 weeks. However, he's only been cleared to do form shooting without jumping, so a potential return doesn't appear to be close. Knicks head coach Tom Thibodeau said, "hopefully, in a week or so that'll be cleared up." In the meantime, Alec Burks and Immanuel Quickley should continue to see increased run with Rose sidelined and Kemba Walker no longer in the mix.

  • Knicks' Derrick Rose: Likely out at least another week

    Coach Tom Thibodeau said Tuesday that there may be an update on Rose (ankle) in 7-to-10 days, Ian Begley of SportsNet New York reports.

    Rose underwent a minor procedure Friday to address a skin infection on his right ankle, which was surgically repaired in late December. Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported that the veteran point guard could return in 1-to-2 weeks following the surgery, but based on Thibodeau's comments, Rose likely won't be available for at least another week and could possibly be sidelined even longer than the initial two-week window. In the meantime, Alec Burks and Immanuel Quickley should continue to see increased run with Rose sidelined and Kemba Walker no longer in the mix.

  • Knicks' Derrick Rose: Could return in 1-to-2 weeks

    Rose (ankle) could return in 1-to-2 weeks after he underwent a minor procedure Friday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Rose's surgery treated a skin infection in the area of the ankle procedure that he underwent in December, but he could be back in action following a relatively brief absence. His return timetable will depend on his participation in team activities in the coming days, but his initial timetable is certainly encouraging. Alec Burks and Immanuel Quickley should see increased run while Rose is sidelined.

  • Knicks' Derrick Rose: Requires another surgery

    Rose will undergo a second, minor surgery on his right ankle Friday and remains without a timeline for his return.

    Rose was considered doubtful for Friday's contest against the Heat and appeared close to his return to game action, but he'll instead remain sidelined for the foreseeable future. The 33-year-old originally underwent surgery to remove a bone spur from his right ankle Dec. 22, and he apparently didn't recover as expected over the past two months. Kemba Walker (rest) was recently shut down for the rest of the season, leaving Alec Burks and Immanuel Quickley likely to handle the bulk of the point guard duties for the Knicks.

  • Knicks' Derrick Rose: Unlikely to play Friday

    Rose (ankle) is doubtful for Friday's game against Miami.

    Rose participated in practice Wednesday and Thursday, but he appears unlikely to suit up during the Knicks' first game following the All-Star break. If he's ultimately sidelined, Immanuel Quickley and Ryan Arcidiacono should see increased run.

  • Knicks' Derrick Rose: Practices again Thursday

    Rose (ankle) participated in practice Thursday, Marc Berman of the New York Post reports.

    Rose went through contact practice for a second straight day, but the Knicks will wait to see how he responds Friday before determining his status for the team's game against Miami. While coach Tom Thibodeau has indicated that Rose will initially come off the bench after returning to the court, he'll have a chance to carve out playing time in the backcourt since Kemba Walker (rest) has been shut down for the remainder of the season.

  • Knicks' Derrick Rose: Practices Wednesday

    Rose (ankle) went through a full practice Wednesday, Steve Popper of Newsday reports.

    The expectation remains that Rose will make his return to action Friday against Miami, but the Knicks will wait to see how the ankle reacts Thursday before officially updating his status. Wednesday marked Rose's first time taking contact since he sustained the injury all the way back on Dec. 16 in Houston. With Kemba Walker shut down for the rest of the season, Rose will vie for minutes with Alec Burks, Immanuel Quickley and Quentin Grimes. Coach Tom Thibodeau implied Wednesday that Rose will initially come off the bench.

  • Knicks' Derrick Rose: On track for Feb. 25 return

    The Knicks are optimistic Rose (ankle) will be ready to return to action when the team opens its post-All-Star break schedule Feb. 25 against the Heat, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Rose said in late January that he was targeting the start of the second half for making his return from a two-plus-month absence due to right ankle surgery, and it looks like he'll be able to meet that goal if he's able to avoid any setbacks in his recovery while he ramps up his workouts over the next week. While Knicks head coach Tom Thibodeau said Wednesday that Rose hasn't been cleared for contact, sources tell Wojnarowski that the 33-year-old is expected to reach that milestone in his rehab program in the next few days. Rose will presumably be on a strict minutes cap once he makes his return to action, and his addition will only make it more difficult to mine fantasy value from the New York backcourt. He'll be part of a melange of guards that includes Kemba Walker, Evan Fournier, Immanuel Quickley, Alec Burks and Quentin Grimes, with at least one of those players likely to drop out of the rotation entirely.

  • Knicks' Derrick Rose: Eyeing post-break return

    Rose (ankle) said Sunday that he plans to return "very soon" following the All-Star break in mid-to-late February, Marc Berman of the New York Post reports.

    Speaking to the media for the first time since being shut down after undergoing surgery Dec. 24 to remove a bone spur from his right ankle, Rose spoke positively about his recovery from the injury. The Knicks have yet to hone in on a precise timeline for Rose to return to the lineup, but the veteran guard could be ready to go as soon as the team's Feb. 25 matchup with the Heat if he's able to resume practicing without issue coming out of the All-Star break. Prior to developing the sore right ankle, Rose had appeared in 26 games with New York and averaged 12.0 points, 4.0 assists, 3.0 rebounds, 1.4 three-pointers and 0.8 steals in 24.5 minutes while shooting 44.5 percent from the floor and 96.8 percent from the charity stripe. At this stage of his rehab, Rose has yet to resume running or taking part in any on-court work, but head coach Tom Thibodeau said Jan. 25 that the 33-year-old had been rehabbing in a pool, according to Berman.
