    Luke Kornet (turf toe) will play in Friday's preseason game against the Pacers.

    Kornet has been battling the ailment since the end of September and now he'll be battling Daniel Gafford for the backup center spot. Although Cristiano Felicio has been starting at center, Gafford and Kornet will play behind Wendell Carter Jr. when the games start to count. Deep-league players should watch that battle closely, as whoever wins could provide some sneaky value.

    Luke Kornet (turf toe) is probable for Friday's game vs. the Pacers.

    Kornet played in Wednesday's preseason game after being listed as questionable with turf toe. Expect him to suit up on Friday. Kornet will not see enough minutes to provide fantasy value barring any major injuries to the Bulls' frontcourt.

    Wendell Carter Jr. (tailbone) will not play on Wednesday against the Pelicans while fellow big-man Luke Kornet (turf toe) is available.

    Carter Jr. underwent a precautionary MRI earlier in the day which didn't reveal any structural damage. The Bulls are likely being cautious as it is only the preseason. However, it is concerning to constantly see Carter Jr. on the injury report. It does seem like he'll be able to shake off his recent injury woes once the regular season begins.

    Luke Kornet (turf toe) returned to practice on Tuesday and is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Pelicans.

    If Kornet can go, he'll get a chance to stake his claim for the backup C job, which is a good position to be in given Wendell Carter Jr's propensity for getting dinged up. Kornet is someone to keep an eye on in deeper leagues.

    Luke Kornet (turf toe) has been ruled out of Monday's preseason contest.

    Kornet hit the injury report at the end of September and still isn't ready to go. He'll be competing with impressive rookie Daniel Gafford for backup center minutes, so it's imperative that he gets back on the court. Kornet would be a fine deep-league target if he can win that battle given his fun stat set.

    Daniel Gafford was back on the court Wednesday after suffering a hyperextended right elbow during practice the previous day.

    Gafford gets to return to comepting for rotation minutes while Luke Kornet (turf toe) remains sidelined. If the rookie impresses enough during training camp it isn't crazy to think that he could edge out Kornet for backup center minutes. Neither player is worth owning for now.

    Daniel Gafford hyperextended his right elbow during Tuesday's practice.

    Gafford is competing with Luke Kornet for the backup C position this preseason. With Wendell Carter Jr. also going down today and coming off multiple surgeries, Gafford is someone to keep an eye on as there could be a path to a prime role at some point this season.

    Luke Kornet will be out for the first several days of Bulls' training camp with turf toe.

    Kornet has good range for a big man but is not slated for big minutes in the Bulls' projected rotation. The good news is that he should not miss much time to make an impression on the coaching staff in Chicago.

    The Bulls have officially announced the signings of Luke Kornet and Shaquille Harrison.

    Kornet can provide threes and blocks as a backup big for the Bulls. He is currently behind Lauri Markkanen, Thaddeus Young and Wendell Carter Jr. but may be able to carve out some minutes for deep-league owners. Harrison will be fighting for minutes with the Bulls' plethora of point guards at the moment. If he can find some minutes during the season, he can be a source of steals as a player to stream or for deep leagues.

    Luke Kornet has inked a deal with the Chicago Bulls for two years worth $4.5 million according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

    Kornet is another stretch big that will fit into the Bulls' system similar to how Lauri Markkanen does. He is a 36-percent shooter from beyond the arc in his career and shoots at will, so he should be a nice role player for an improved Bulls team.

    Shams Charania of The Athletic is reporting the Bulls have reached an agreement in principle for two years with free agent Luke Kornet.

    Kornet will be able to stretch the floor as a nifty backup center for the Bulls. He averaged 1.5 3-pointers made per game in just 17 minutes per game for the Knicks last season. Kornet is a career 36 percent 3-point shooter.

    According to Chris Haynes, the Knicks will not extend a qualifying offer to Luke Kornet.

    Kornet will hit unrestricted free agency and will likely only return to the Knicks if they miss out on big-time free agents. He has had some bright spots with the Knicks over the past two seasons, so he could garner interest once he hits the open market as a bench stretch-big.

    Luke Kornet started and played 28 minutes in Wednesday's season finale, scoring six points to go with two rebounds and 2 assists.

    The UniKornet showed multiple times throughout the 18-19 campaign that he has a golden fantasy stat-set, having many games where he piled up cash-counters. The only problem was that Coach David Fizdale never felt comfortable letting him loose full-time, resulting in a mediocre top-190 value on the year. A path to playing time in New York doesn't seem to be getting any clearer with their eyes set on big prizes in free agency, dashing the hopes of anyone hoping for an expanded role heading into next season.

    Luke Kornet double-doubled with 12 points, 13 rebounds, four assists, two threes and a massive six blocks in Tuesday's road win against the Bulls.

    Kornet has been a top-35 player over the past two weeks and proved his value again on Tuesday. Kornet saw 38 minutes tonight and should be in all lineups for the season finale against the Pistons.
