Detroit Pistons PG Derrick Rose had an MRI on his ankle and is expected to miss weeks, Yahoo Sports’ Chris B. Haynes reported Tuesday afternoon. Rose was injured in the Pistons’ previous game against the Sacramento Kings over the weekend. He finished with nine points in nine minutes after being ruled out.

Fantasy basketball analysis: Derrick Rose injury

With Rose out against the Kings, we got a glimpse of who may see more minutes. Svi Mykhailiuk and Tony Snell played close to 40 minutes against Sacramento. Brandon Knight and Langston Galloway also saw north of 20 minutes off the bench. My guess is Galloway starts in the back court with Svi since he’s the veteran and has played well at times for Detroit this season. Mykhailiuk is a decent waiver wire option, though Galloway and Knight may be more readily available in deeper fantasy basketball leagues.
