Markkanen is reportedly feeling better, so that bodes well for his status after he was a very late scratch on Wednesday. By late, we mean literally 15 minutes. While it’d be a little short sighted of the Bulls to cut his minutes by a ton, Markkanen will probably get less on his plate when he returns thanks to the strong play from Nikola Mirotic. The more time Markkanen misses, the more time Mirotic has to put a dent into his workload. Both players are worth owning in standard leagues and hopefully they don’t hard cap each other’s upside.
