Bulls first round pick Lauri Markkanen (back) will practice Tuesday, but is still questionable for Wednesday against the Jazz.
Markkanen sat out Monday’s game with the ailment and hopes to be back Wednesday. Nikola Mirotic started in his stead and dropped 24 points. The Bulls are still one of the worst teams in the league so they have every reason to continue to play Mark big minutes when he is healthy, however it’s never a good thing to have a veteran playing so well at the same position. Mirotic and Mark both need to be owned at this point until we see what shakes out as the season goes along. Bobby Portis is also chomping at the bit, but is the third best option at this point and is not a must add.
