Coach Fred Hoiberg said Denzel Valentine (ankle) isn't ready to practice yet.
K.C. Johnson from the Chicago Tribune suggested it's more than likely Valentine will miss the entire preseason. The versatile forward was a top-150 player last year and is good enough skill wise to remain there. Lauri Markanen's injury should open up some time for him with Jabari Parker sliding down to the four and away from SF. However, when the Bulls are a fully healthy squad minutes will be hard to come by for the 24-year-old. You can still take him as a flier at the end of your draft for assists and boards.
