    Zach LaVine (left quad strain) will miss Tuesday's matchup against the Cavs.

    LaVine will miss his fifth game in a row on Tuesday when the Bulls take on the Cavs. Coby White has already told sources that he will be making his first start. He's definitely the big winner until LaVine gets back on the court so keep rolling Coby out there.

    Coby White will move to the starting lineup against the Cavaliers on Tuesday.

    Coby White's been hot and getting a ton of opportunity even before this welcome news. If he's somehow available, go grab him right away. Barring injury, he should be valuable in the fantasy playoffs.

    PG, Chicago Bulls

    Coby White continued his sterling play of late with 21 points, six rebounds, eight assists, a steal and three 3-pointers on Sunday.

    White played 35 minutes off the bench but has been highly involved over the last few weeks, making him a must-own guy since his shot has been dropping. Tomas Satoransky suffered today, going 1-for-7 from the field for four points, three rebounds and one assist in 25 minutes. Zach LaVine's return will throw a wrench into things but White should be able to hold onto this value as long as he doesn't hit a shooting slump.

  • Otto Porter Jr.
    SF, Chicago Bulls

    Otto Porter responded nicely to Wednesday's dud and Friday's quiet game, dropping 23 points, three rebounds, two assists, four steals and three 3-pointers while shooting 9-of-17 on Sunday.

    Porter played 25 minutes and made the most of them. We'd bet on his minutes ramping up again shortly and he's someone to consider scooping up if he's free in your leagues. He's now got four steals (all from today, curiously), three blocks and six threes in his four games back and is heading towards a starting role. Thaddeus Young was able to keep his place once more today, putting up 17 points, five rebounds, two steals and two threes in 25 minutes of his own, but you can't help but feel that his days are numbered with Porter and Lauri Markkanen both ramping up to full speed.

  • Lauri Markkanen
    PF, Chicago Bulls

    Lauri Markkanen put up 16 points (5-of-8 FG), four assists, a steal and four 3-pointers in 26 minutes on Sunday afternoon.

    It's a nice bounceback from Markkanen's 1-of-10 shooting performance on Friday. This was his third game back from a 15-game layoff and his minutes are already trending up quickly, so just hope that he'll be rust-free for next week's four-game schedule.

  • Shaquille Harrison
    PG, Chicago Bulls

    Shaq Harrison finished Sunday's road loss with six points, eight rebounds, three assists, four steals and a block in a team-high 36 minutes of action.

    Harrison played like a guy who doesn't want to lose his starting spot. Otto Porter appears to be turning the corner but it's clear that Jim Boylen likes Harrison's defense, which gives him a floor as a steals specialist. We would expect his playing time to dwindle but Harrison's always been a premier per-minute thief.

  • Wendell Carter Jr.
    C, Chicago Bulls

    Wendell Carter Jr. posted just seven points, three rebounds and an assist in 28 minutes against the Nets on Sunday.

    Not good. Carter is reportedly restriction-free in terms of playing time, and if he's going to settle below 30 mpg it might be more of a top-100 finish to the season than the top-80 run that we know he's capable of. Keep an eye on his playing time in the next one but it's starting to look like we should dial down expectations to an extent.

  • Ryan Arcidiacono
    PG, Chicago Bulls

    Ryan Arcidiacono (right Achilles soreness) has been ruled out vs. the Nets on Sunday.

    He hasn't been playing much as of late and he was also ruled out on Friday due to injury. Arcidiacono doesn't hold much value in fantasy leagues and can be left on the wire.

    Zach LaVine (left quad strain) has been ruled out of Sunday's game vs. the Nets. .

    This was pretty expected as LaVine said he's looking at missing about a week. The Bulls have a four game week next week so hopefully he'll be fresh and ready to suit up for all of those games. When he does come back, Shaq Harrison and Denzel Valentine will lose opportunity.

    Zach LaVine (left quad strain) is formally listed as questionable for Sunday's game.

    LaVine said he was looking at about a week on the sidelines iast of last weekend, so this tracks. Hopefully he's able to return to the court tomorrow and put fantasy GMs at ease ahead of Chicago's four-game week next week. If he does return, it'll limit the work for Denzel Valentine and Shaq Harrison.

    Ryan Arcidiacono (right Achilles soreness) is questionable for Sunday's game.

    Arcidiacono sat out on Friday after being a game-time call, though he doesn't produce enough to warrant much attention in fantasy circles.

    Zach LaVine (left quad strain) is expected to practice on Saturday with the possibility of playing on Sunday against the Nets.

    LaVine has missed the last three contests but looks to be nearing a return depending on how practice goes tomorrow. The 24-year old is entering his prime and having his best year as a pro with career highs in multiple categories, averaging top-40 per game value and top-20 total value in standard leagues. His return will would reduce the roles of Shaq Harrison and Denzel Valentine.

  • Lauri Markkanen
    PF, Chicago Bulls

    Lauri Markkanen had a rough go of it on Friday, scoring only three points (1-of-10 FG, 0-for-5 3PT) and collecting five rebounds in 22 minutes in a loss to the Pacers.

    Ok, so he's rusty. After missing 15 games with a right pelvic injury, this was only Markkanen's second game back. His per game rank sits just outside the top-100 on the year but his ability to ramp up his production this late in the season seems increasingly doubtful. The Bulls have plenty of minutes to go around, however, and Markkanen had been good prior to the injury. Coach Jim Boylen also announced that he and Otto Porter Jr. will be receiving more minutes going forward. If you've managed to stash Markkanen this long, you might as well use him. If he's on the wire, add him only if you have an open spot.

  • Shaquille Harrison
    PG, Chicago Bulls

    Shaq Harrison had 25 points, four rebounds, four assists and three steals in 33 minutes on Friday vs. the Pacers.

    Harrison has held fourth round value over the past seven games as his playing time has increased and within the top-200 over the last two months on a per game basis. Kris Dunn being out for the season has opened the door for Harrison and he finally looks like he might be taking advantage of the opportunity. He is a streamable option for desperate fantasy managers.

  • Denzel Valentine
    SF, Chicago Bulls

    Denzel Valentine started on Friday and dropped 13 points and snagged six rebounds in a loss to the Pacers.

    He has been productive since playing solid minutes over his last three games. Valentine is a decent streaming option as long as he is getting 20 minutes a night and could be used if you're in a fantasy playoff push.
