Lauri Markkanen (personal) returned to action on Friday against the Wolves, scoring 12 points on 5-of-7 shooting (including two threes) with five rebounds and one assist in 36 minutes.
Markkanen took a back seat to the Jimmy Butler and Zach LaVine show and that might be a metaphor for the last third of his season. The Bulls aren’t going to turn away from him by any means and Nikola Mirotic is gone, but between Lavine, Kris Dunn and Justin Holiday there are a few players that don’t mind taking shots. If he can sneak in a good game before Dunn returns it could provide owners their last sell high chance.
