The Bulls are considering making a pair of lineup changes for Wednesday's preseason game: Wendell Carter Jr. in place of Robin Lopez and Bobby Portis in place of Jabari Parker.
This is only preseason, but it's notable, especially in the case of Parker and Portis. It's been assumed that Carter will overtake Lopez before the end of the season but he could be on an accelerated timeline even after a quiet preseason. Parker, however, was thought to be the starting small forward and then the starting power forward in the wake of Lauri Markkanen's injury. Portis has put up a really strong preseason and might bump Parker back over to the three and Justin Holiday to the bench. Again, it's just preseason, but this has a shot at sticking.
