While Lauri Markkanen continues to deal with back issues, Fred Hoiberg said that there are no plans to shut him down for the season.
Back injuries can be troublesome but there’s been no indication that Markkanen is dealing with a long-term issue. The question bears asking with the Bulls doing some paperwork gymnastics to sit productive players but Markkanen’s fantasy owners don’t have to worry about him missing the rest of the year. Bobby Portis and Noah Vonleh will get the power forward minutes for as long as Markkanen remains out.
