Robin Lopez and Justin Holiday will be back in the starting lineup on Friday night in Detroit.
Rather than face the wrath of the league, the Bulls will play nice and give their veterans some token appearances down the stretch. There’s already a “minutes plan” in place, which means we’ll see short stints from both before they make way for the younger guys. Lopez is not a fantasy play while Holiday is only worth using if you’re feeling risky and think he might actually play minutes into the twenties. On the flip side, Bobby Portis is the only guy affected here that you’ll want to keep in your lineups tonight. Cristiano Felicio may fall out of the rotation while David Nwaba and Denzel Valentine might not play enough minutes to be worthwhile. The Bulls are expected to use the same configuration for their game in Atlanta and might be doing this on all their road games to end the season, so keep an eye out for that.
