  • Lauri Markkanen

    Lauri Markkanen (pelvic stress reaction) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Wolves.

    it was reported that Markkanen was hopeful to return for this one, and this is a step in the right direction. Thaddeus Young is going to take a sizable hit to his value once Markkanen is fully up to his speed.

  • Kris Dunn
    PG, Chicago Bulls

    Jim Boylen confirmed to reporters on Tuesday that Kris Dunn (knee) will miss the remainder of the season.

    This was the expectation after the Bulls gave Dunn a 4-6 week timetable not too long ago. If you haven't already, it is time to move on from Dunn. Otto Porter Jr. is back and is already having a minute increase, so owners should look to see if he is still available on the waiver wire.

  • Wendell Carter Jr.

    Jim Boylen said that Wendell Carter Jr. and Otto Porter Jr. will both have their minutes limit increased during Wednesday's game against the Wolves.

    Both Carter Jr. and Porter Jr. recently returned to game action and should be ready to roll with no minutes restrictions by the time the fantasy playoffs arrive. Owners of the injured Bulls have to be ecstatic that a minute increase is already here.

  • Lauri Markkanen

    Lauri Markkanen (pelvic stress reaction) is hoping to return for Wednesday's game against the Wolves after practicing fully on Tuesday.

    Markkanen had a target date of early March, and this would be right in line with that expectation. He will likely have a minutes limit for a few games, but he should be ready for a full workload by the fantasy playoffs. Markkanen was having a down year, but is still a top-100 value on a per-game basis this season and should be added in all leagues.

  • Zach LaVine
    PG, Chicago Bulls

    Zach LaVine (left quad strain), who will not play in Wednesday's game against the Wolves, said that he will probably be out a week as he takes a cautious approach with his injury.

    The Bulls have started to get healthy with the returns of Wendell Carter Jr. and Otto Porter Jr, while Lauri Markkanen is on the verge of a return as well. The team would like to see their core together for a few games to close out the season, but won't be pushing anyone to play if they aren't ready. Keep an eye on how LaVine progresses throughout the week.

  • Coby White
    PG, Chicago Bulls

    Coby White came off the bench in Monday's 109-107 win over the Mavs with 19 points on 8-of-20 shooting while adding six rebounds, five dimes, a steal and three 3-pointers.

    White continues to play well off the bench for the Bulls and has been consistent enough to own in all standard leagues for owners in need of points and triples. He provided some extra value tonight with his assist numbers and over his last ten he's averaging 19.2 points, 3.9 boards, 3.8 dimes, 0.9 steals and 3.2 3s which is good for No. 70 in 9-cat leagues.

  • Denzel Valentine
    SF, Chicago Bulls

    Denzel Valentine scored 17 points on 7-of-15 shooting to go with four rebounds, two assists, a block and three triples in a start on Monday.

    Valentine drew the start and immediately took the lion's share of shots left behind from Zach LaVine (quad) missing this game. The injury shouldn't be a long-term deal and he's a streaming play at best.

  • Tomas Satoransky
    PG, Chicago Bulls

    Tomas Satoransky scored 11 points with six boards, five dimes, a steal and a 3-pointer in 31 minutes as a starter on Monday.

    Satoransky played another solid game in a start and should continue to provide owners with low-end point guard lines with a couple extra rebounds at the position.

  • Wendell Carter Jr.
    C, Chicago Bulls

    Wendell Carter Jr. returned to action on Monday, starting and scoring seven points to go with six rebounds, one assist and a block.

    Carter Jr. joined the starting lineup and looked like a guy who had missed extended time. Expect him to take a few more games to get his legs underneath him, but mid-round production should be coming when he does.

  • Thaddeus Young
    PF, Chicago Bulls

    Thaddeus Young started and logged 36 minutes on Monday, scoring 12 points with nine boards, four dimes and a steal.

    Young has been playing well during the absence of Lauri Markkanen (pelvis) and should be owned in standard leagues until Markkanen returns. Once they get him back, Young becomes a fringe player.

  • Otto Porter Jr.
    SF, Chicago Bulls

    Otto Porter Jr. returned to action on Monday, coming off the bench to score 18 points on 7-of-11 shooting to go with one rebound, three assists and three 3-pointers in 17 minutes of action.

    Porter Jr. made his return on Monday and it was his first game since November 6th, 2019. His foot injury sidelined him for much longer than we thought, but he produced a great line in limited minutes tonight and should be owned in all leagues. He can fill up the stat sheet and with the fantasy playoffs incoming, he could be a difference maker for your league.

  • Lauri Markkanen
    PF, Chicago Bulls

    Jim Boylen said that Lauri Markkanen (pelvic stress reaction) is "close" to a return to action.

    There's no word on whether he'll be available for Wednesday. Nevertheless, he's certainly worth claiming if anyone dropped him in your league.

  • Zach LaVine
    PG, Chicago Bulls

    Zach LaVine (left quad strain) will not play during Monday's game.

    He was already listed as doubtful. Tomas Satoransky and Denzel Valentine will start with Coby White providing bench minutes.

  • Lauri Markkanen
    PF, Chicago Bulls

    Lauri Markkanen (pelvic stress reaction) has been ruled out of Monday's game.

    No surprise here, as he was listed as doubtful and assigned to the G League for practice purposes. It doesn't sound like he's far off a return though, so make sure he's not on your waivers.

  • Coby White
    PG, Chicago Bulls

    Coby White (back soreness) will be available to play on Monday.

    White's been on a big scoring binge of late and should have a big opportunity to keep it going with Zach LaVine (quad) now doubtful. The Bulls have four games this week, which gives you the green light to roll with the rookie while he's on his hot streak. Ryan Arcidiacono (back) is also good to go after being listed as probable.
