Sam Smith reported that Bulls rookie Lauri Markkanen (back) will be out again on Friday vs. the Bucks.
Niko Mirotic is poised to have another big game. Bobby Portis will also get extended minutes off the bench. Mirotic should already be owned, and Portis is a decent plug-and-play.
The Bulls don’t seem concerned but they know it’s something they’ll have to watch closely. Not the best thing in the world when your 20 year old star rookie is already dealing with back issues. https://t.co/x7UFpbhFyv
