Lauri Markkanen (back spasms) and Zach LaVine (knee tendintitis) will sit out Wednesday’s game against the Nuggets.
The Bulls appear to be laying down for this one against the Nuggets which benefits both teams. This will be Markkanen’s fifth missed game in a row and LaVine’s third. This is the danger in today’s NBA of owning star players on tanking teams come playoff time. Target players in trades and in the draft who will be fighting for a playoff spot at the end on and you can avoid this headache. Both are worth holding onto if if won’t cost you advancing in the playoffs this week.
