Hard to tell from the pictures

I see some small white roots which look like they are alive

You can scratch the outer bark of the roots and check for signs of life underneath: green fresh layer.

assuming it is alive would i cut the canes right back to the soil level when planted or leave them and see if new one s grow.? Would it be better in the ground or in a pot to try to nurse it back to health?

Thanks for the feedback
