• Lauri Markkanen
    PF, Chicago Bulls

    Lauri Markkanen is currently shooting 27% from three and 39% from the field.

    What's more, the shots Lauri's missing are his bread and butter: wide open, spot-up opportunities from distance. His most frequent shot types from long range have been stationary threes, on which he's shooting 28%, but the real indicator that positive regression is coming is that he's shooting only 26.5% from three when wide open (nearest defender 6+ feet away). Markkanen, of course, was 38% and 43% on spot-up and wide open threes last year, respectively. There is a major ball movement concern in Chicago as they continue to play their PGs out of position and task Zach "TO Machine" LaVine with primary ballhandling duties, but this screams buy low opportunity. Test the waters to see how frustrated other managers may be with Markkanen. A stretch like the one he had last February could vault him into the top 50 in no time.

Fantasy News

  • Avery Bradley
    SG, Los Angeles Lakers

    Avery Bradley (lower leg hairline fracture) has been cleared to play on Wednesday.

    Don't expect too much from him in his first game back. Bradley will be eased along slowly and can return to being a deep-league asset.

  • Isaac Bonga
    PG, Washington Wizards

    Isaac Bonga had to go back to the locker room on Tuesday after falling and hitting the back of his head.

    Stay tuned for more updates, but for now we'll consider him unlikely to return.

    SG, Memphis Grizzlies

    Grayson Allen (right ankle soreness) is being listed as out ahead of Wednesday's game against the Suns.

    Allen has been playing well of late with top-90 value in 9/8 cat leagues over the past week. Dillon Brooks, De'Anthony Melton and Tyus Jones will pick up additional minutes in his absence.

  • Kyle Anderson
    SF, Memphis Grizzlies

    Kyle Anderson (right heel soreness) is being listed as probable ahead of Wednesday's game against the Suns.

    Anderson has struggled this year to the tune of with per-game value outside of the top-200 in both 9 and 8 cat leagues. He can be left on the waiver wire until he shows some signs of life.

  • Brandon Clarke
    PF, Memphis Grizzlies

    Brandon Clarke (sore left oblique) is being listed as probable ahead of Wednesday's game against the Suns.

    Ja Morant returned in 10 days, and now Clarke is about to beat even that. File this away for later in the year when evaluating future Grizzlies injury reports. The buy-low window after his week-to-week diagnosis may have officially shut. Get Clarke back in your lineups, assuming he plays.

  • Cristiano Felicio
    C, Chicago Bulls

    Cristiano Felicio (wrist) is being listed as doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Hawks.

    Feliciano doesn't carry any fantasy value as the team's fourth center.

    The Bulls are listing Wendell Carter Jr. (thumb) and Colby White (hamstring) as probable ahead of Wednesday's game against the Hawks.

    Joining White and Carter as probable are Daniel Gafford, Ryan Arcidiacono and Denzel Valentine. Look for everyone to play their usual roles in this one.

  • Zach LaVine
    PG, Chicago Bulls

    Zach LaVine (strained right shoulder) is being listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the Hawks.

    LaVine's shot hasn't been falling the past week, shooting just 37 percent from the field in his last four games. LaVine will look to snap out of his recent shooting slump against a soft Hawks defense.

  • Eric Paschall
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    Eric Paschall (sore left hip) is being listed as questionable ahead of Wednesday's game against the Knicks.

    Paschall has been the most consistent offensive piece for the Warriors in what has been otherwise a forgettable season. If he can't go, we might see Kevon Looney get extra run, but that is not a given. Omari Spellman and Marquese Chriss will see additional minutes as well.
