Nikola Mirotic (leg strain) will travel with the Bulls on their three-game road trip, but remains questionable for Wednesday against the Blazers.
Mirotic was well on his way to the Pelicans before he reportedly blocked the trade via his no trade clause. The hold up is his $12.5 million team option that he wants picked up before he is dealt. The Pelicans don’t want to pick that up in order to have enough money under the cap to resign DeMarcus Cousins. The Bulls and Pelicans are still in advanced discussions, but something will need to be altered to make this work. As for now Mirotic will try to go about things as normal and could play Wednesday with Lauri Markkanen (personal) sitting out. Bobby Portis is still a speculative add in case the trade is able to go through.

Cory Joseph is expected to start in place of De'Aaron Fox against the Blazers on Tuesday.
Joseph and Bogdan Bogdanovic will pick up most of the slack while Fox is out for the forseeable future, with Yogi Ferrell seeing some added run as well.

Joel Embiid is available to play against the Cavs on Tuesday.
Feel free to get the superstar big man in your lineups. The Sixers play again on Wednesday and it is very likely that Embiid sits in the backend of the back-to-back.

Cristiano Felicio (wrist) will be out for the next 4-8 weeks with a broken wrist after falling in practice on Monday.
This is a tough blow for Felicio. Daniel Gafford and Luke Kornet will continue to run as the backup C's behind starter Wendell Carter Jr.

Bruce Brown Jr. (right knee contusion) is being listed as available and will be the starting PG for Tuesday's matchup against the Heat,
Brown is set to see heavy usage on Tuesday with Blake Griffin and Derrick Rose both out. Brown would make for a nice cheap DFS option and a streaming option if he was dropped in your league.

Coach Nate McMillan said that Victor Oladipo played "a little full-court" 5-on-5 for the first time during his rehab in Tuesday's practice with the Mad Ants.
Oladipo is inching closer and closer towards getting back to game action with a return in December being very realistic. The buy-low window for the All-Star guard is starting to close with each positive report.

Shabazz Napier (right hamstring strain) is being listed as doubtful to play against the Spurs on Wednesday.
Napier's return is murky at the moment, as there hasn't been a timeline for when he will be back as of yet. Jarrett Culver will continue to log heavy minutes at PG, at least untill Jeff Teague (illness) can retunr.

Jordan Bell (right shoulder sprain) is being listed as doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Spurs.
When Bell has been healthy, he hasn't seen the court time fantasy owners had hoped for and should remain on waiver wires.
