    Lauri Markkanen is probable, as always, to play against the Bucks on Monday due to a left ankle sprain.

    You know the drill by now if you follow the Bulls' injury reports. They always throw the probable tag on a player if there is any sign of a problem. Markkanen will be out there and should be able to improve upon the late-round value he has been delivering so far this season.

    Lauri Markkanen (left ankle sprain), Ryan Arcidiacono (right elbow discomfort), Luke Kornet (right thumb sprain) and Tomáš Satoranský (sore left ankle) are all listed as probable ahead of Friday's contest vs. the Sixers.

    The Bulls have developed a reputation for listing most of their roster as probable on the official injury report but expect all four of these players to suit up for Friday's game. Markkanen and Satoranský are the only players worth rostering in standard leagues while Kornet might have streaming value with the injuries to Wendell Carter Jr. and Daniel Gafford.

    Lauri Markkanen picked up 13 points (4-of-8 shooting), eight rebounds, an assist and a block on Wednesday

    Markkanen is just inside the top-100 on the season. The Bulls' situation is a bit messy right now, so if you think he can benefit from it going forward, it could be a good buy-low opportunity.

    Lauri Markkanen (left ankle sprain) is being listed as probable to play against the Wizards on Wednesday.

    The Bulls have been listing half of their team as probable all season long, and tonight's injury report is no different. Deploy Markkanen as you normally would.

    Lauri Markkanen had a bad night on Monday, scoring nine points on 4-of-9 shooting to go with six boards and two steals.

    His night wasn't necessarily bad because of his play, although there are always things to be desired when you go 0-for-3 from deep. He logged 25 minutes, Thaddeus Young (17 points, 8-of-14 shooting with two boards, one assist and one triple) played 24 and Luke Kornet (zero points, five boards and one block) played 22. Out of all of these players, Markkanen had the best plus-minus so it's a bit baffling to see him play so little in a game that was relatively close. The Bulls situation is a bit messy, but Markkanen should push for mid-round value so you can send a buy-low offer after tonight without being laughed at.

    Lauri Markkanen (left ankle sprain) is being listed as probable for Saturday's game against the Pistons.

    Markkanen played in the last one and the Bulls treat the injury report as a joke, so there's nothing to read into here. Markkanen has quietly been a top-40 asset in 9-cat leagues over the past month and looks to be the main beneficiary of the Wendell Carter Jr.'s injury, since he'll be picking up additional center minutes and will get a boost in rebounds as a result. He's someone to target in trades right now before a likely raise in value. His manager is probably sick of him right now.

    Lauri Markkanen (left ankle sprain) is available and will start for the Bulls on Friday.

    The Bulls will have Daniel Gafford joining Markkanen in the frontcourt and should be an interesting dynamic to observe.

    Lauri Markkanen (left ankle sprain) and Ryan Arcidiacono (right elbow discomfort) are both listed as probable on the official injury report ahead of Friday's matchup vs. the Pacers.

    Markkanen could see additional value with Wendell Carter Jr. out with an ankle injury. The Bulls typically label any player with even the slightest injury as probable so all expectations are that both Markkanen and Arcidiacono will play. Markkanen is the only one who is fantasy relevant this season and should be started in all formats if he plays.

    Lauri Markkanen (left ankle sprain) will play and start against the Pelicans on Wednesday.

    Markkanen will start alongside Thaddeus Young on Wednesday as Wendell Carter Jr. had already been ruled out with an ankle injury. After a tough start to the season, Markkanen has produced 4th/2nd round value in 8/9-cat leagues over the past month.

    Lauri Markkanen (left ankle sprain) is probable to play on Wednesday.

    Markkanen was able to play on Monday after being listed as doubtful that morning, so this isn't all that surprising. Daniel Gafford (left ankle sprain), Ryan Arcidiacono (right elbow) and Adam Mokoka (eye) are also probable but not expected to miss any time.

    Lauri Markkanen scored 26 points on 10-of-18 shooting with nine rebounds, one steal and four 3-pointers on Monday.

    Markkanen's awful shooting slump looks to be past him as he's bringing in nearly top-50 value over the past two weeks with averages of 19.0 points, 4.0 3s and 5.5 rebounds on .463 shooting. He's a streaky shooter though so another cold spell might come, but the Bulls absolutely need him to score the ball and will keep feeding it to him, even when he's cold.

    Lauri Markkanen (left ankle sprain) is available for Monday's game against the Mavs.

    Markkanen was doubtful at one point, but he must have felt good in warm ups. He may not be quite himself tonight and his minutes may be limited.
