Robin Lopez will start on Friday vs. the Pistons.
Lopez hasn’t played in seven games, or even after the Bulls received a warning from the league about resting healthy players. Since the Bulls are on the road Lopez might get the start on Sunday at Atlanta, too. We’ll have to see what happens after that. Lopez’s return doesn’t dampen the outlook for Bobby Portis, who has actually played better off the bench. Portis is clearly the better option than Lopez for 9-cat, and Robin makes for a risky add considering his shaky playing time recently.
