Bulls big man Lauri Markkanen (ankle) said he expects to play on Wednesday against the Thunder.
Markkanen sprained his left ankle on Saturday and missed practice on Monday, but he seems confident he will go on Wednesday. Bobby Portis will lose a few minutes from the 30 he played when he had the whole second half to himself on Saturday after Mark went out. Nikola Mirotic (face) is also back at practice and has yet to talk to Portis, but if he does suit up for the Bulls again it could create an ugly timeshare at PF. Portis would be hurt the most by Mirotic’s return as Markk has played well enough to keep the starting job. Portis and Markk are still holds for now.
