Nikola Mirotic scored 32 points in the 115-105 Bulls victory on Wednesday night.
Mirotic really came on during the last two weeks of the season scoring in double figures in seven of his last nine games. Unfortunately for the Bulls it was all in vain as they failed to qualify for this year’s playoffs. Mirotic played 39 minutes vs the Sixers and shot 10-of-17 from the field, including 7-of-10 from three-point land. He added seven rebounds, four assists, five steals and three blocks and was an absolute stud tonight. Fo those who rolled the dice on a DFS play, well done. The Bulls end their season at 42-40 and head into the offseason with some personnel issues that need addressing. We’ll see who returns and who moves elsewhere as the Summer months roll along.

Jake Layman (left toe sprain) is available for Monday's game.
Layman has been out since November, so his role is uncertain going forward. However, he did put up decent numbers prior to the injury and could be worth monitoring.

Russell Westbrook is active but not listed in the Rockets' starting lineup for Monday's game against the Knicks.
Westbrook attended Kobe Bryant's memorial service, so this could be a result of his hectic day. Stay tuned for more updates.

Wendell Carter Jr. (right ankle sprain) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game.
The big man last played on January 6 but his return seems to be approaching. He should be added if an impatient owner dropped him in your league.

Denzel Valentine (left hamstring soreness) is listed as doubtful for Tuesday's game.
Valentine has been out since February 2. He is getting closer to action, but it's unknown whether he'll get enough minutes to matter in fantasy circles.

Willie Cauley-Stein will not play on Monday for personal reasons.
This shouldn't move the needle for many fantasy players. Consider him day-to-day going forward.

Luke Doncic (right ankle soreness) will play during Monday's game.

Al Horford will start for the Sixers on Monday.
Ben Simmons is sidelined and Horford will stay in the lineup for now. Even if he's the team's Sixth Man in the long term, Horford provides value in a number of categories. Shake Milton will also start against the Hawks.

Maurice Harkless will start for the Knicks during Monday's game.
Reggie Bullock will head to the bench. There's no reason to overreact to this news, but Harkless could be an undervalued DFS play.

Kevin Love (right Achilles soreness) is available for Monday's game.
He was already considered probable to face the Heat after missing Saturday's game. Love's minutes have been held down over the last couple of appearances, but he can still help fantasy owners in most leagues.
