Bulls forward of the future Lauri Markkanen (back) will play on Wednesday against the Jazz.
Will Lauri Markkanen continue to start even with Nikola Mirotic playing so well? How much time he will get with two veteran bigs chomping at the bit? We would assume coach Fred Hoiberg will choose the long term road by starting and playing Markkanen 30 plus minutes a night to continue his development. This would leave Nikola Mirotic to come off the bench and get around 20 minutes while Bobby Portis would be left to pick up the scraps. However, coaches often defy logic and make rotations a headache for fantasy owners, so check the box score tonight. Mark could also see limited minutes Wednesday due to his recent injury so it may take more than one game to see how the final rotations shake out. Mirotic and Mark are holds for now.
