what's it gonna be?
Derrick Rose expects to play Friday night for Team USA against Puerto Rico, which will end a six-day reprieve from actually playing basketball. He has not taken part in scrimmages at practice since playing 24 minutes in a victory over Brazil last Saturday.
Knee soreness and general precautionary reasons are what is keeping Rose sidelined, and should that really be a surprise? He has had surgery on each of his knees over the past two seasons, and it takes players time to get back into game shape when they have basically been sidelined for two straight years.
The question for USA Basketball is this: Will Rose be able to play five games in six nights, which is what their schedule calls for? If not, does it make sense to put him on the final 12-man roster?
Plenty of talk about Rose and Team USA in this interview with the Boers & Bernstein Show in Chicago on 670 The Score.

Derrick Rose is one of five point guards in training camp for Team USA, and he is the only one who has these three things in play right now:
_ He is trying to initiate a career comeback after playing only 10 games the past two seasons after injuries to both of his knees.
_ He is the only one of the five Team USA point guards who has won an MVP award. Also, he started for Mike Krzyzewski four years ago in Turkey at the World Championship.
_ His coach, Tom Thibodeau, is an assistant on the U.S. staff and is overseing Rose's scrimmages with an eagle eye.
Columnist Bobby Gonzalez attended the first day of practice and wrote that he thinks Rose will make the final 12-man roster, along with Stephen Curry and Kyrie Irving (Damian Lillard and John Wall would miss the cut. I wrote in my camp preview that I thought Rose would be the easiest to cut.
So what are we to make of Rose's strong play and strong words following the colclusion of Day One of Team USA's training camp? I discussed on the Boers and Bernstein Show on 670-AM The Score in Chicago.

If you visit SheridanHoops.com with any regularity, then you know we recently wrote a piece listing the NBA's top 10 point guards.
The list includes some relative newbies such as John Wall and Kyrie Irving. It also does not include Deron Williams and Derrick Rose, who have not done enough of late to merit inclusion among the best players at arguably the most talented position in the league.
The folks at Rip City Radio 620 in Portland visit the site with some regularity, because they asked author Chris Bernucca to go on the air and discuss his No. 4 selection - Damian Lillard of the Portland Trail Blazers.
Lillard has the least experience of any of the top 10. But he has crammed an awful lot onto his resume in just two years - a Rookie of the Year award, an All-Star berth, a playoff series win capped by his dagger 3-pointer at the buzzer. And just about anyone with a brain in their skull believes Lillard is going to get better.
On Tuesday afternoon, Bernucca appeared on the Wheels at Work show with Blazers radio play by play man Brian Wheeler and discussed the recent evolution of the NBA point guard from a passer to a scorer, why Rose and Williams didn't make the cut, and the attributes of Lillard, who is described as "easy to like."
