    Cristiano Felicio (wrist) will be out for the next 4-8 weeks with a broken wrist after falling in practice on Monday.

    This is a tough blow for Felicio. Daniel Gafford and Luke Kornet will continue to run as the backup C's behind starter Wendell Carter Jr.

    Cristiano Felicio (wrist) has been ruled out of Tuesday's game against the Knicks.

    Even when active, Felicio has minimal fantasy value for as long as Wendell Carter Jr. remains healthy.

    PF, Chicago Bulls

    Wendell Carter Jr. (tailbone contusion) will not play on Monday.

    Carter's injury isn't considered serious, and if anything else it's good that he isn't being sidelined by his offseason core muscle surgery or a recent left ankle sprain. Cristiano Felicio will start in his place tonight. WCJ has middle-round upside if he can stay healthy, though the Bulls will exercise extreme caution with their hopeful franchise center.

    PG, Chicago Bulls

    Tomas Satoransky filled up the stat sheet in a big 93-71 win over Brazil on Saturday with 20 points, seven rebounds, nine assists, three steals and two blocks.

    Satoransky also shot an efficient 7-of-10 from the field with three triples as his team looks very likely to advance to the next round now. They would need the US to beat both Greece and Brazil and not lose to Greece by more than 11 points themselves on Monday. Brazil suffered their first loss of the tournament as Bruno Caboclo scored five points with three rebounds, two steals, a block and a triple in 29 minutes while Cristiano Felicio added eight points and four rebounds in 20 minutes. Their chances of advancing are very slim as they will take on the US on Monday.

    Cristiano Felicio played 22 minutes in Wednesday's season finale defeat to the Sixers.

    Felicio scored two points in this game, which is consistent with his top-425 value 8 and 9-cat formats. We may have two more seasons of Felicio disappointing during silly season while still getting paid $8 million per year.

    Cristiano Felicio played well on Wednesday in an overtime win against the Wizards as he had 15 points and six rebounds on 7-of-11 shooting.

    He played 21 minutes and added one assist, one steal and one block to the box score. Robin Lopez played 31 minutes, but had just eight points, two rebounds and one assist. Lopez has contributed top-80 value over the past month, so this performance is not encouraging. However, expect him to bounce back and continue to return late-round value at the very least.

    Cristiano Felicio scored a season-high 10 points in Sunday's loss to the Hawks, adding four rebounds and two assists in 16 minutes.

    Felicio has been an afterthought since Robin Lopez rejoined the rotation, not that he was a huge contributor as the backup behind Wendell Carter Jr.

  • Robin Lopez
    C, Chicago Bulls

    Adrian Wojnarowski reported that despite Wendell Carter Jr.’s (left thumb) extended absence, the Bulls haven’t changed direction on trying to trade Robin Lopez.

    If Lopez is traded, that would leave Cristiano Felicio as the lone true center on the Bulls’ roster. If that ends up being the case it’s still hard to see Felicio getting minutes in the 30s and considering his skill-set isn’t that fantasy friendly, he would probably be only usable in deep leagues. It’s also possible the Bulls bring in a G-League player to soak up some of the minutes or just play more small-ball with Bobby Portis and Lauri Markkanen getting more run at the five.

  • Chandler Hutchison
    F, Chicago Bulls

    Chandler Hutchinson (back spasms) will not play on Friday vs. the Heat.

    Hutchinson was downgraded from probable and will miss his second straight game. The rookie has shown flashes but wasn’t getting enough run to be a difference maker in fanatsy. Jabari Parker and Justin Holiday probably get a bit more run tonight though if Miami goes big for long stretches of the game, we might see a bit of Cristiano Felicio too.

    Cristiano Felicio was a member of Chicago's closing lineup on Friday and outplayed Robin Lopez yet again.

    Darnell Mayberry of The Athletic speculates that the Bulls might have a trade lined up for Lopez, who is a veteran on an expiring deal. Felicio isn't a great fantasy option but if he's going to hold down backup minutes there's certainly potential for him to grind out cheap double-doubles. Deep league owners in need of rebounding can do worse.

    Cristiano Felicio is available for Saturday night's game.

    Felicio is going to be there if needed, but he's not going to play outside of garbage time.

    Cristiano Felicio is questionable to play against the 76ers on Saturday.

    We are not sure if the ankle is still the issue as he was expected to be available for the first game but ended up not playing. Either way, he will not be in the rotation even if he is healthy after his sub par preseason and the Bulls having plenty of frontcourt depth.
