• Lakers head coach Luke Walton is unsure when Julius Randle (hip) will be available to return.

    This is unfortunate news since Randle was playing well for the Lakers to start the season. In his absence, Larry Nance Jr. should see an uptick in minutes and you may also see Walton decide to go small and use Luol Deng as the team’s stretch four.

    Wendell Carter Jr. (abdomen, thumb, tailbone, illness) is listed as available for Wednesday game.

    PG, Chicago Bulls

    Coby White (left hamstring tightness) will be available for Wednesday's game.

    Zach LaVine (strained right shoulder) will play on Wednesday.

  • Daniel Gafford
    PF, Chicago Bulls

    Daniel Gafford (left finger sprain) is listed as available for Wednesday's game.

    Gafford mostly gets bench minutes when Wendell Carter Jr. is resting. He scored 14 points on Monday but is rarely that productive.

  • Cristiano Felicio
    C, Chicago Bulls

    Cristiano Felicio (right wrist fracture) will miss Wednesday's game.

    Felicio hasn't yet played in 2019-20 and he was just a role player last season. It does seem like he's getting closer to action, though.

  • Wayne Ellington
    SG, New York Knicks

    Wayne Ellington (sore left Achilles) will be unavailable on Wednesday.

    Ellington missed Saturday's game as well. He hasn't made a huge impact this season, but Allonzo Trier could see some more action for now.

  • Markelle Fultz
    PG, Orlando Magic

    Markelle Fultz is considered questionable for Wednesday's game due to illness.

    Fultz has looked good so far this season but might need to rest against the Lakers. D.J. Augustin would likely receive starter's minutes if Fultz can't play.

  • Avery Bradley
    SG, Los Angeles Lakers

    Avery Bradley is listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the Magic after dealing with a right leg hairline fracture.

    Bradley has missed more than a month but looks like he is ready to return. He probably won't help standard league owners much but may cut into Alex Caruso's minutes eventually.
