    PF-C, Chicago Bulls

    Luke Kornet scored 11 points on 4-of-7 shooting and added three rebounds, four assists, one block and three 3-pointers in 22 minutes on Saturday.

    Kornet's best fantasy contributions are blocks and threes and he provided them on Saturday. He has short-term value in standard leagues while Wendell Carter Jr. (right high ankle sprain) and Daniel Gafford (thumb) are out. Thaddeus Young (seven points in 15 minutes) and Cristiano Felicio (two points in 14 minutes) both flopped on Saturday, so Kornet may have the upper hand over those two in the rotation while the Bulls are short-handed.

    Luke Kornet started on Friday and scored 13 points (4-of-10 from the field) with three rebounds, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes.

    Kornet got the start with Wendell Carter Jr. (right high ankle sprain) and Daniel Gafford (thumb) both sidelined. Carter is likely out 3-5 more weeks and Gafford is out 2-4 weeks, so Kornet has some short-term value in standard leagues and should have solid production in blocks and threes. Thaddeus Young (four points and two steals in 32 minutes) struggled on Friday but is the preferred option over Kornet while the Bulls are injured.

    Luke Kornet (right thumb sprain) will play on Friday against the Sixers.

    Kornet is slated to split the center minutes with Cristiano Felicio and carries an intriguing stat set for a center. He makes for a nice streaming option and could possess standard league value if he outplays Felicio while the Bulls are missing Wendell Carter Jr. and Daniel Gafford.

  • Lauri Markkanen
    PF, Chicago Bulls

    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.

    Luke Kornet turned 35 minutes of action into 10 points, four rebounds, two assists, a steal and two blocks on Wednesday.

    Kornet likely wasn't supposed to get this many minutes, but an injury to Daniel Gafford just after tip off was all that he needed to have his time to shine. Kornet's minutes are a result of an injured Bulls' lineup that won't be fully healthy for a while. Kornet should be added in all leagues.

  • Daniel Gafford
    PF, Chicago Bulls

    According to Chams Charania Bulls center Daniel Gafford is expected to miss 2-4 weeks with a dislocatd right thumb.

    This turn of events thrusts Luke Kornet into the thick of things, whether he's ready or not. We should see some more of Thad Young off the bench as well, but expect Kornet to be the Bulls' starting C in the short-term. He's a must-add right now.

  • Daniel Gafford
    PF, Chicago Bulls

    Daniel Gafford (ankle), Chandler Hutchison (shoulder), Luke Kornet (thumb) and Ryan Arcidiacono (elbow) joined Lauri Markkanen (ankle) and Tomas Satoransky (ankle) on the Bulls' extensive injury report as all are being listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the Wizards.

    This has been the norm for the Bulls all season, as they continue to pile on their injury report. All six players should play, and fantasy owners should play the fantasy-relevant players as they usually do.

  • Lauri Markkanen
    PF, Chicago Bulls

    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.

    PF-C, Chicago Bulls

    Luke Kornet scored 15 points in 25 minutes off the bench and added six rebounds, two steals, two blocks and three 3-pointers on Saturday.

    Kornet posted a gem of a stat line on Saturday with production across the board. He was scoreless in 10 minutes on Friday and can be ignored in standard leagues. He could be someone to watch in very deep leagues if he can get 20 minutes a night while Wendell Carter Jr. (right high ankle sprain) is out 4-6 weeks.

    Luke Kornet (sinus surgery) returned to action on Wednesday against the Warriors, playing 10 minutes with one rebound, one steal and two blocks.

    Kornet has a nice stat set but he hasn't had any real traction in Chicago so far. If he does, we'll let you know.

    PF-C, Chicago Bulls

    Luke Kornet (sinus surgery) has been upgraded to probable ahead of Wednesday's tip-off vs. the Warriors.

    Kornet has not played in the last eight games and has yet to eclipse the 20 minute mark once this season. It appears that Kornet will not have fantasy value this season unless injuries occur that will move him up the depth chart.

    Luke Kornet (sinus surgery) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Warriors after going through Tuesday's practice.

    Jim Boylen mentioned that his big man rotation would be fluid whenever Kornet returns after Daniel Gafford played his way into the rotation during Kornet's absence. Kornet belongs on waiver wires with an uncertain role at the moment.

    Luke Kornet (sinus surgery) is being listed as doubtful for Monday.

    Kornet was just cleared for activity, per Jim Boylen, though he'll need some more time before the Bulls seriously consider putting him back out there. One wonders if Kornet will be able to get his job back from Daniel Gafford when he is ready to return.

    Luke Kornet (nose) is being listed as out ahead of Wednesday's game against the Pistons.

    Daniel Gafford will continue to see extra minutes in Kornet's absence and made the most of on Monday by scoring 21 points in 20 minutes. Kornet can be left on the waiver wire.

  • Daniel Gafford
    PF, Chicago Bulls

    According to Jim Boylen, Daniel Gafford will play "first half minutes" against the Bucks on Monday.

    Luke Kornet is recovering from nose surgery, so Gafford will be given some more time after his recall from the G League. However, he is not a recommended play unless his role increases dramatically.
