Sources: Derrick Rose to Remain on Minutes Restriction All Season

No matter how well Derrick Rose plays this season, he will remain on a strict 28-to-31-minute restriction, multiple sources told ESPN.

Rose had his best game yet for the Cleveland Cavaliers in Friday’s 130-122 win over the Washington Wizards, scoring a season-high 20 points to complement LeBron James’ 57-point performance. Rose scored 13 of his points in the first quarter, when he played 10 minutes, then played only 19 minutes the rest of the way.

“Let me say, for one, I’m just happy to be a part of this team, part of something that I think is special,” Rose, 29, told ESPN. “A minute restriction, there’s nothing I can do about that. But with me having all these injuries in my past, I’m kind of used to it. But whatever the team sees and the staff sees and they want me to do, that’s what I’m going to cooperate with and just go about it the right way.

The Cavs arrived at the 28-to-31-minute range for Rose after Cavs coach Tyronn Lue, athletic trainer Steve Spiro and Rose’s agent, B.J. Armstrong, came up with a long-term plan that they hope will keep Rose’s body fresh for Cleveland’s playoff run.

“Knowing that I never played in June, just trying to be cautious with everything around the board,” Rose told ESPN.
