Elfrid Payton (hamstring) has been ruled out of Friday’s game versus the Bulls, according to Jason Robbins.
This will be the seventh straight game Payton has missed, but this time D.J. Augustin is expected to sit as well. Expect Shelvin Mack to handle the starting point guard role and make for a chalk DFS punt play, while Evan Fournier and Mario Hezonja will likely see time at backing up point guard. Payton should be viewed as day-to-day going forward.
