Lauri Markkanen underwent a surprise MRI on Friday and was diagnosed with a right hip stress reaction which will keep him sidelined for four-to-six weeks.
Bummer. Lauri has quietly begun to pay dividends after an ice cold shooting streak dating back to October. He had been solidly within the top 50 for the past two and a half months. The Bulls are getting dangerously thin in the frontcourt and it's reasonable to expect them to bring someone in. Thaddeus Young will get all of the minutes he can handle next to Luke Kornet and Cristiano Felicio. Markkanen himself may be a drop candidate if your team is struggling in the standings.
