• Kris Dunn
    G, Chicago Bulls

    Coach Fred Hoiberg noted that Kris Dunn (sprained MCL) was going at roughly 80 percent during recent practices.

    That’s a good sign now that we’re in the fifth week of a 4-to-6 week recovery timetable. Unlike other positions on the Bulls, point guard is a pressing need considering Cam Payne recently got benched for the uninspiring Ryan Arcidiacono. We hope Dunn can consistently hit mid-round value as he did for stretches of last season and if he happens to be available on your wires, he should be picked up.

  • Kawhi Leonard
    SF, Los Angeles Clippers

    Kawhi Leonard has been listed out with a left knee contusion on Saturday.

    Kawhi Leonard missed the last game due to being a back-to-back game but it appears his knee is bothering him. The Clippers are playing the Hawks so hopefully they are just being cautious and while hoping to get a win against a weaker opponent.

  • Zach LaVine
    PG, Chicago Bulls

    Zach LaVine caught on fire late to score 36 points, along with three rebounds, one assist and three treys in Saturday's 111-117 loss to the Nets.

    LaVine was aggressive tonight as he was 11-of-24 from the field and got to the line, going 11-of-12. Unfortunately he didn't chip in any defensive numbers. It was great to see he didn't have any lingering affects from his right ankle sprain.

  • Wendell Carter Jr.
    C, Chicago Bulls

    Wendell Carter Jr. racked up 18 points, grabbed 14 rebounds and added two assists on Saturday vs. the Nets.

    WCJ struggled with fouls again as he fouled out, with some fouls coming from reaching in on guards. He still managed to play 37 minutes and was perfect from the line, going 8-of-8. He didn't have any defensive stats tonight but is usually good for a block every game.

  • Lauri Markkanen
    PF, Chicago Bulls

    Lauri Markkanen showed some life with 16 points, along with 10 rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and two threes on Saturday vs. the Nets.

    Markkanen had been struggling but was able to chip in across the board tonight. He got to the free throw line tonight going 6-of-6 from the line. Hopefully he can use this game as a step in the right direction to recover from his let-down season so far.

  • Frank Jackson
    PG, New Orleans Pelicans

    Frank Jackson went to the locker room on Saturday against the Heat.

    Jackson took a hit from a moving screen and was holding his neck. If he is unable to return, Nickeil Alexander-Walker, Nicolo Melli and E'Twaun Moore will get more playing time.

    PG, Minnesota Timberwolves
