Lauri Markkanen will miss the at least first two preseason games, according to K.C. Johnson.
Markkanen was forced out of Friday’s practice with back spasms and the Bulls seem to be taking the side of caution. He is doing some light work at practice and the team do not seem to be to worried about the injury going forward. Even with the team rebuilding, Markkanen is going to struggle to find playing time to begin the season. He can be avoided in anything by dynasty or keeper leagues, but it worth keeping an eye on as the season progresses due to his potential.
