Jerian Grant

  • Cameron Payne
    PG, Chicago Bulls

    Cameron Payne was atrocious in Tuesday's tilt with the Rockets, shooting 1-of-7 for two points, eight rebounds, three assists and a steal in 23 minutes.

    The silver lining crowd can point to the rebounds but he has been much better than this of late. Payne is into must-own territory as Chicago's starting point guard despite this clunker, however, as Jerian Grant won't present a serious challenge for the job. Grant was 1-for-9 tonight, scoring four points with three assists, a steal and a 3-pointer in 18 minutes.

  • Jerian Grant
    PG, Chicago Bulls

    Jerian Grant posted 10 points and 10 assists in Saturday's loss, adding two triples and two steals in just 23 minutes against the Pistons.

    He had a nice game off the bench, so even if you were using him as a dart throw with Cam Payne hobbled it paid off nicely tonight. Don't count on Grant going forward, however, as Payne played through his ankle injury and delivered 10 points, four rebounds, three assists, a steal and a triple in 28 minutes. He makes for a solid add if you need point guard stats the rest of the way.

  • Cameron Payne
    PG, Chicago Bulls

    Cameron Payne was limited to just 23 minutes given Wednesday’s lopsided scoreboard but still cooked up 11 points, six assists, three triples, two steals and a block.

    Payne is probably worth adding in all formats at this point with a Kris Dunn shutdown looking more likely by the day. He’s got a shot at top-100 numbers the rest of the way but if you set your sights on top-125 output you’ll avoid any disappointment. Jerian Grant logged 25 minutes in this one and scored 10 points with seven assists and a steal but is only an option in seriously deep leagues.

  • Kris Dunn
    PG, Chicago Bulls

    Kris Dunn (toe) is now in a walking boot after suffering a setback.

    Dunn was said to be dealing with a ‘turf-toe type” of injury that had the potential to linger, and that’s clearly come to pass. Cameron Payne will continue to start at point guard while Jerian Grant will operate as the backup. Dunn’s lack of a timetable could make him tough to hold if you’re looking for help in the playoffs while Payne makes for a solid add in most formats with this news. Don’t expect the world but late-round lines should be a fairly regular occurrence.

  • Kris Dunn
    PG, Chicago Bulls

    It sounds like Kris Dunn could be sidelined going forward as Fred Hoiberg described his ailment as a “turf-toe type injury.”

    That will be a lingering issue for Dunn, opening the door for Cam Payne to start at point guard for the foreseeable future. He’s worth an add in 14-16 team formats for the stretch run and would probably jump into standard league consideration with a strong performance tonight. The decision would be a whole lot easier if the Bulls provided a clearer timeline but we’ll just have to wait and see. Jerian Grant will also rejoin the rotation but isn’t very appealing outside of exceedingly deep leagues.

  • Justin Holiday
    SG, Chicago Bulls

    Justin Holiday will be back in the starting lineup on Saturday night with Zach LaVine out and is going to be joined by Cameron Payne, Denzel Valentine, Paul Zipser and Cristiano Felicio.

    The Bulls are missing their three best players tonight wit LaVine, Kris Dunn and Lauri Markkanen all out. The group above doesn’t inspire much confidence in fantasy outside of Valentine, as Payne, Zipser and Felicio just don’t have a ton to offer while Holiday may not play past the first quarter. Payne is at least worth a dart throw with some decent lines in his back pocket lately while Jerian Grant will return to the rotation. The big winner will be Bobby Portis even though he won’t start, while David Nwaba should also get decent run. The Bulls could look to give Antonio Blakeney 25-plus minutes tonight and he’s a desperation option if you need scoring. Look for Robin Lopez to continue to sit, even if the Bulls are very shorthanded. Good luck if you’re planning on watching this one.

  • Kris Dunn
    PG, Chicago Bulls

    The Bulls have ruled Kris Dunn (sprained big toe) out for Saturday.

    Dunn left last night’s game with the injury, and the starting reins will either fall to Cameron Payne or Jerian Grant. Payne has been the primary backup of late with Grant racking up DNPs but perhaps Fred Hoiberg would prefer to call on Grant, as he’s started earlier in the year and his promotion would have the smallest ripple effect on the rest of his rotations. Of course, the Bulls have a lengthy injury report anyway so it could be an improvisational sort of night. Payne is the preferred option based on recent trends and is worth a stream if you need guard stats. He also figures to be a popular DFS option against the Cavs. Dunn has been one of Chicago’s few bright spots this season so hopefully he’s not out too long.
