Bobby Portis was terrific in Sunday’s road victory, leading the Bulls with 21 points on 9-of-16 shooting while compiling 10 rebounds, five assists, two triples and a steal in 27 minutes.
He would’ve played more if not for a token Robin Lopez appearance but that doesn’t take any shine off this performance. Portis is typically deployed for his hollow scoring and rebounding lines but has upped his threes and steals this year to raise his fantasy floor. The 0.6 steals per contest aren’t gamebreakers, but it’s a definite improvement over his 0.3 mark from last year. Keep him in your lineups as the Bulls have nothing to lose by giving him as many minutes as possible. Lauri Markkanen was strong as well with 19 points, eight rebounds and a triple-one while even Noah Vonleh got into the power forward mix with 8 & 8 in 19 minutes. The tank gives rise to even the most forgotten of players, apparently.
