  • Bobby Portis - F - Chicago Bulls

    Bobby Portis scored 21 points on 8-of-12 shooting (including two threes) with six rebounds, two assists and one steal in 24 minutes off the bench in Saturday's loss to the Heat.

    Portis is set for a nice second half of the season and could surpass top-75 numbers in a fairly modest upside scenario. He's an easy must-add player if that somehow slipped under the radar in your league.

  • Wendell Carter Jr. - C/F - Chicago Bulls

    A recent blurb on the Bulls’ website informs us that Wendell Carter Jr. (left thumb) was examined by hand specialists, Drs. John Fernandez and Mark Cohen, and that their recommendation for surgery would leave Carter Jr. out of commission for 8-to-12 weeks.

    To be clear, the Bulls aren’t announcing his surgery only what the rehab time would be if performed. While it’s still possible WCJ gets a second opinion, the Bulls are tanking and have no reason to keep him out there so the writing may be on the wall. Make sure Bobby Portis isn’t floating around on any waivers.

  • Wendell Carter Jr. - F - Chicago Bulls

    Bulls insider K.C. Johnson reported that a new MRI revealed ligament damage to Wendell Carter Jr.’s thumb that may need surgery.

    The first specialist Carter Jr. saw is recommending surgery but it’s still possible that he sees an additional specialist for another opinion according to Johnson. Either way, it doesn’t look like WCJ will be back anytime soon which makes Bobby Portis a must add. Additionally, Robin Lopez’s backup role seems a bit more secure while Jabari Parker might actually stick in the rotation with Portis getting more run at center.

  • Bobby Portis - F - Chicago Bulls

    Bobby Portis moved into the starting five on Thursday and delivered 10 points, 13 rebounds, four assists and a 3-pointer on 4-of-13 shooting against the Nuggets.

    Portis is now 5-for-24 over his last two games, but that's more of an unfortunate anomaly than anything. He's likely to start at center for as long as Wendell Carter Jr. (sprained thumb) is out, but it's possible that WCJ returns as early as Saturday. Still, Portis is worth a spot in most 12-team leagues given his potential the rest of the way. The Bulls should clear minutes in the frontcourt rotation and top-120 numbers seem like a safe bet once he gets that consistent playing time.

  • Bobby Portis - F - Chicago Bulls

    Bobby Portis will start at center on Thursday, replacing the injured Wendell Carter Jr.

    Carter's sprained thumb isn't as serious as initially expected and he's hoping to play on Saturday, so this could be a short one-game thing for Portis. That said, his minutes are likely to tick up in the second half of the year and we like him as a late-round guy the rest of the way. Don't react too much one way or another to tonight's results, as he gets promoted for a date with Nikola Jokic. It's a tough spot to say the least.

  • Bobby Portis - F - Chicago Bulls

    Bobby Portis was working with the starters at Thursday's practice.

    It sure looks like Portis will start in place of Wendell Carter Jr. (sprained thumb) against the Nuggets tonight. He's coming off a terrible game but does have late-middle round upside, so we'd be fine if he was in your lineups tonight, even in a tough matchup that could quickly become a blowout. The fact that Carter is only day-to-day hurts Portis' rest-of-season appeal somewhat but he should still be one of the top players in the frontcourt, especially once Robin Lopez is moved.

  • Bobby Portis - F - Chicago Bulls

    Bobby Portis (right elbow) hit just 1-of-11 shots in Tuesday's loss to the Lakers, scoring two points with seven rebounds and three assists in 17 minutes.

    Portis did not have any cash counters and this is a really terrible line, and though it's tempting to just say that lower upside players shouldn't get much leash, it's still early on in a bumpy start for Portis. Better times are likely ahead and he has top-100 upside, so if that works for you hang on.

  • Bobby Portis - F - Chicago Bulls

    Bobby Portis (right elbow) said that he'll be in the lineup on Tuesday night.

    Portis sat out on Saturday and it looks like it'll end up as a one-game absence. His return will likely send Jabari Parker back out of the rotation, and you can get BP into lineups if you need some late-round lines.

    Bobby Portis (right elbow) will not be suiting up in Saturday's game against the Jazz.

    Portis has been playing well in the past three games so this is frustrating for him since the injury bug always comes back to bite him. Expect Lauri Markkanen to play a bit longer than usual and maybe a Jabari Parker sighting in today's game. Portis continues to post a high usage rate but his fantasy owners would like to see more more defensive stats from him when he comes back from this ailment.

    Bobby Portis (right elbow) is questionable to play against the Jazz on Saturday.

    This is a new injury for Portis who was being eased into the rotation from his previous injury. He has yet to clear the 20-minute mark since his return so there should be little fantasy implication if he misses time. Minute allocation has been difficult to determine for the Bulls lately as they have been blown out four of the last five games.

  • Bobby Portis - F - Chicago Bulls

    Bobby Portis had 16 points, four rebounds, two steals and a 3-pointer in 17 minutes on Friday night.

    Portis somehow took a decent line away from this ugly loss. He salvaged his scoring total by going 7-of-8 from the line, otherwise this game looks far more ordinary. BP should have a shot at top-120 value the rest of the way, and it may get easier for him if/when the Bulls jettison Robin Lopez (13 minutes) and Jabari Parker. Parker's currently out of the rotation and not hurting him, but taking him out of the equation entirely won't hurt.

    Bobby Portis fared well in the 19 minutes allotted to him on Wednesday night, mustering 15 points on 6-of-12 shooting with six boards and a team-high three triples.

    The Bulls are bringing him along slowly as he recovers from a sprained ankle but has come around as of late. Portis should see a nice uptick in production once he's clocking in at over 22 minutes per game.

  • Bobby Portis - F - Chicago Bulls

    Bobby Portis will be limited to playing a maximum of 24 minutes on Wednesday as the Bulls manage his recovery from a sprained ankle.

    Portis looked spry in 20 minutes on Sunday, dropping 17 points for the Bulls but it's understandable that they're being cautious with him.

  • Bobby Portis - F - Chicago Bulls

    Bobby Portis was limited to 20 minutes on Sunday, his first game back from a sprained right ankle, but still managed 17 points (6-of-11 shooting), five rebounds and three 3-pointers.

    Portis ended up missing seven games and returned a bit earlier than most anticipated, especially with the Bulls in tank mode. The fact that Jabari Parker is out of the rotation helps immensely but Portis still has some work to do to carve out minutes. He's worth scooping up in all formats as a potential top-120 option the rest of the way, but playing time concerns will crop up from time to time.

  • Bobby Portis - F - Chicago Bulls

    Bobby Portis (right ankle sprain) will not play more than 20 minutes in his return vs. the Nets on Sunday.

    The fact that Portis is even playing is good news as he's been out since Dec. 19. The funny thing is that he actually first got injured against Brooklyn and he's also making his return against them. He'll likely take minutes away from Wendell Carter Jr. and Robin Lopez as he works his way back into the lineup.
