“Just needed a day,’’ Knicks coach Tom Thibodeau said after surviving the Spurs, 102-98, at the Garden. “We knew we were getting a couple of guys [Immanuel Quickley, Alec Burks] back so we thought it would be good to give him the rest.’’ Rose, 32, could’ve played, though Thibodeau admitted Rose hurt himself Tuesday against the Lakers when he logged a season high 39 minutes. “He tweaked it in the Laker game,’’ Thibodeau said. “He did some stuff pregame. And we just felt it was better not to play him today and see where he is [Friday].’’

Detroit Pistons guard Derrick Rose underwent an MRI recently on his sprained right ankle and it returned negative, league sources told Yahoo Sports.
The Pistons will be cautious in deciding when to let Rose play, but the 2010-11 league MVP is expected to make a full recovery and will be reassessed in a few weeks, sources said. Rose, 31, has been the lone bright spot for the franchise this season, but the team is now considering turning the show over to the younger players, a move that would likely improve its draft position, sources said.

Timberwolves guard Derrick Rose left Friday night’s game in overtime against the Hawks with a sprained right ankle. He didn’t return. Rose had already done plenty of damage in the game, finishing with 25 points and nine assists. Rose was held out on Dec. 23 against the Thunder, but that was due to a sore left ankle, so for better or worse, it’s a different ankle. Rose will be re-evaluated on Saturday, which is a scheduled off-day for the team.
Darren Wolfson: #Twolves guard Derrick Rose had to buy 50 tickets for tonight’s game, which is actually light, he said. He is technically a game-time decision at Chicago w/ that ankle injury, but is expected to play. pic.twitter.com/ciG9lWj8yn

The Timberwolves are signing guard Derrick Rose for the rest of the season, a source confirmed to the Star Tribune. ESPN first reported the news Thursday. Rose, 29, figures to give the Wolves scoring off the bench as they try to make a push for their first playoff berth since 2004. Minnesota has been shorthanded since guard Jimmy Butler was injured last month.
Chris Fedor: #Cavs Derrick Rose is a go for tonight. Rose will come off the bench. He will be on a minutes restriction.
Dave McMenamin: The Cavs say Derrick Rose is probable tonight. Iman Shumpert is still out.
Derrick Rose could return to the court for the Cavaliers during this five-game road trip, and coach Tyronn Lue spelled out Friday how he would fit into the rotation. Rose, who hasn’t played since Nov. 7 because of a sprained left ankle and bone spurs, will take minutes and even games away from Dwyane Wade in an effort to preserve Wade for the postseason.
Lue said Wade is on board with his plan for Rose to take some of his time. “I talked to him already,” Lue said. “(Wade is) 50-years old, so, sometimes you just don’t have it. But with all the guys being out, just don’t have the luxury right now. So we talked about it. He understands and he’s for it.”
Rose said he is pain free in his left ankle, which he first sprained Oct. 20 in the second game of the season. “I haven’t had any pain, I haven’t had any setbacks,” Rose said. “If anything I’ve been progressing every day and every week, so I’m on the right track.”
Derrick Rose rejoined the Cavaliers on Dec. 4 with no timetable for a return from his left ankle injury, but he wants his fans to know that he is “not depressed,” is improving physically and still loves basketball. “Be patient. I’m good. I’m just taking my time,” Rose said. “You don’t have to worry about me. I’m not depressed. I’m good. A lot of people think I’m depressed because of what I’m going through. It’s the total opposite. I learned from my mistakes three or four years ago when I put myself into a shell. And now that I am in this position, it’s only right that I learn from the best. I’m staying with my team, staying with my family, communicating and just being open.”

Chris Forsberg: Celtics save $9 million in salary between Kemba + Al Horford next season. Horford’s 2022-23 salary is only partially guaranteed, which gives the Celtics a bunch of options with how to proceed. Essentially, path to adding a new third star is a bit easier
The Thunder will eventually make a push toward competing, but that won’t happen until another year or two down the road. For now though, they send a high-priced former Celtic on the roster back to Boston, a place MassLive reported last week that he would love to return to, according to league sources. Moving a first-round pick with Walker to bring back Horford to Boston helps Brad Stevens on a pair of fronts. First, it significantly reduces the payroll for the next two years as Horford only makes $27 million next season and his 2022-23 salary is only partially guaranteed ($14.5 million). Horford also would fit a big hole as a stretch big in the frontcourt in the interim, although it remains unclear how much he has left in the tank after flaming out in Philadelphia.
“There’s two destination that are heavily rumored. The first you just mentioned is the Bucks. If Bud goes, Rick moved in there would immediately allow him to take over a championship contending team.” “There’s a lot of smoke about a potential Rick Carlisle reunion with the Pacers,” said MacMahon. MacMahon indicated that he hasn’t heard that rumor from anyone directly involved. Carlisle was head coach of the Pacers from 2003 until 2007.
The Indiana Pacers had a disappointing 20-21 season in which they fired Nate Bjorkgren as head coach after one season, but Kevin Pritchard will remain in his role running the front office. “Let me say a few things about Indiana,” said Brian Windhorst. “One, I know Kevin Pritchard, their general manager, came out and gave a press conference and made it sound like his future was in some sort of doubt there. That is no longer the case. He has been assured he will be there. I don’t think he was ever really in danger. Herb Simon, who is the owner of the team, is extremely close to him. They have an extremely close relationship. It doesn’t mean they couldn’t make a change. Without going too far, I will say Kevin Pritchard has been assured he’s going to be there.”
The New York Times and subscription sports news site The Athletic have ended their acquisition talks, according to people familiar with the matter. The demise of the deal—which would have united one of media’s best known legacy brands with a respected up-and-comer—came down to money. The people familiar with the matter said the two companies couldn’t agree on a price.

Chris Mannix: Kemba’s relationship with the Celtics had soured after Boston discussed dealing him after his first season with the team. Celtics get off the final two years of Kemba’s contract — but need to move a big trade chip (No. 16 pick) to do it.
