Denzel Valentine

    SF, Chicago Bulls

    Denzel Valentine turned 23 minutes in 15 points, three 3-pointers and a steal on Tuesday against the Cavs.

    Valentine stuck in the starting five and should continue to do so until Zach LaVine is ready to return. He's typically not good for much beyond modest scoring lines and some threes, so your mileage may vary here despite tonight's decent showing.

    PG, Chicago Bulls

    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.

    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.

    Denzel Valentine will start against the Pacers on Friday.

    This will be Valentine's fourth consecutive game for the Bulls, and he has been active from deep with 19 attempts from 3-point range. He will have some appeal as a 3-pointer streamer, but it's hard to imagine Valentine's role getting too large as long as Coby White, Lauri Markkanen, Zach LaVine, Otto Porter Jr. and Wendell Carter Jr. need to get touches. This team is only getting healthier.

  • Coby White
    PG, Chicago Bulls

    Coby White continued his scoring binge on Wednesday night, going 11-of-22 from the field en route to 26 points, six assists and two 3-pointers.

    White continues to do damage off the bench, though he may be elevated soon with Zach LaVine out. No offense to tonight's starter Denzel Valentine (11 points, one steal, one triple in 18 minutes), but it's clear where the future lies in Chicago. White belongs in all lineups until this hot streak ends.

    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.

  • 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.

    Denzel Valentine returned from a seven-game absence (left hamstring) on Saturday, playing 10 minutes and posting eight points with two threes.

    Valentine was the low minute man on a night where the Bulls played everyone on the roster, so clearly he's not someone you'll need to track in fantasy.

    Denzel Valentine (left hamstring soreness) will be available on Saturday against the Knicks.

    Valentine has been out since February 2 so it is unclear if he will be on any restrictions. He is likely to battle Shaq Harrison and Adam Mokoka for backup wing minutes so a 20-minute per game role until Otto Porter returns is not unreasonable for Valentine but he should be left on waivers regardless.

  • Coby White
    PG, Chicago Bulls

    Coby White is dealing with a lower back strain from Thursday's practice, which has him questionable for Saturday's contest with the Knicks.

    It'd be rough if White's hot streak ended due to this injury, as he was crushing it over the last three games. While it'd be a shocker to see White go for 30 points for the fourth straight game, he is still looking like a nice pickup for points and 3-pointers at this point. The injury to Kris Dunn really opened the door for White, and you should be excited to see where this goes. Denzel Valentine is questionable for this one with left hamstring soreness.

  • Wendell Carter Jr.
    C, Chicago Bulls

    Head coach Jim Boylen told the media that he is "hopeful" that both Wendell Carter Jr. (right ankle sprain) and Denzel Valentine (left hamstring tightness) play in Saturday's game against the Knicks.

    Both players were assigned to the Bulls' G league affiliate on Wednesday and this report further confirms that they are close to a return. Continue to monitor the wire as more news will come Friday or Saturday regarding their availability. Wendell Carter Jr. is a must-own player across formats as he has proven to be a standard league value this season.

  • Chandler Hutchison
    SF, Chicago Bulls

    Chandler Hutchison (shoulder), Denzel Valentine (hamstring) and Luke Kornet (ankle) will all be held out against the Thunder on Tuesday.

    The Bulls will once again have only nine active players for tonight's game as Ryan Arcidiacono, Shaquille Harrison and Adam Mokoka should again see minutes in the high teens. None are worth much of a look, as the Bulls have five days to get their roster healthy before their next game on Saturday.

    Denzel Valentine (left hamstring soreness) is listed as doubtful for Tuesday's game.

    Valentine has been out since February 2. He is getting closer to action, but it's unknown whether he'll get enough minutes to matter in fantasy circles.

    Denzel Valentine (left hamstring tightness) has been ruled out ahead of Sunday's contest against the Wizards.

    He went through 3-on-3 drill on Friday so he's nearing a return to action. Valentine really needed to get shipped out of town at the deadline a few weeks ago to have any sort of value due to his frequent rifts with coach Jim Boylen. Maybe he gets some extended run closer to the end of the season, but don't hold your breath.

    Left hamstring tightness will keep Denzel Valentine on the sidelines for Saturday's matchup vs. the Suns.

    Valentine has not been able to carve out a real place for himself in the Bulls' rotation this year. When he receives 30 minutes he can be a useful player, but that is unlikely to happen at all this year. Just forget about him.
