The thing is with Alex Smith/Kaepernick or Pipp/Gherig, is that the replacement ended up being better than the hurt player. They didn't get replaced because of injury. They got replaced because the guy behind them was actually a better player.
Derrick Rose's replacement is not better than Derrick Rose.
