    Further testing has revealed a severely sprained left ankle and a fifth metatarsal fracture for Luke Kornet, who will miss 6-8 weeks.

    This looks like the end of Kornet's season, and he can be safely dropped in all redraft formats. Daniel Gafford should assume Kornet's rotation role, while Wendell Carter Jr. will have less competition for minutes when he gets back on the court. Gafford's worth a look in deeper leagues for his upside as a rebounder and shot-blocker.

    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.

    C, Chicago Bulls

    Wendell Carter Jr. (ankle) is being ruled out ahead of Tuesday's matchup with the Thunder.

    Carter Jr. returned to Bulls' practice over the All-Star break eyeing a return, but he will now miss the first four games after the break. Luke Kornet (ankle) remains out as well, as Daniel Gafford and Christiano Felicio should continue to stay busy. Carter's next opportunity to return will be on Saturday against the Knicks.

    Luke Kornet (left ankle sprain) will not play on Tuesday.

    Kornet sprained his ankle on Friday but hasn't played particularly well of late anyway. Daniel Gafford should see minutes in the low twenties for now.

    Luke Kornet (left ankle sprain) will not play against the Suns on Saturday.

    Kornet has underwhelmed as the Bulls' starter over the last 14 games and disappeared in the two games since his 25-point outburst against the Sixers right before the All-Star break. Daniel Gafford will draw the start on Saturday and might be viewed as a short-term blocks specialist while splitting time with Luke Kornet until Wendell Carter Jr. returns.

    Luke Kornet is doubtful to face the Suns on Saturday due to his left ankle sprain.

    Kornet will join Wendell Carter Jr. on the sidelines, and that could mean Daniel Gafford has some standard league value as one of the last centers left standing for the Bulls. Kornet has an intriguing stat set, but it has not come together for 14-team value even while his competition is injured. He's a drop at this point outside of deep leagues.

    Luke Kornet sprained his left ankle at Friday's practice.

    There's no timeline for his return yet but we wouldn't expect to see him playing on Saturday. This opens the door for Daniel Gafford a bit, and if Wendell Carter Jr. can't return this weekend we should see Cristiano Felicio get some minutes if Kornet sits out.

    Luke Kornet established a new career-high in scoring on Sunday, going for 25 points (10-of-14 shooting), two rebounds, a block and four 3-pointers before fouling out in 29 minutes.

    Kornet had to contend with Joel Embiid tonight and while that explains the fouls, he also did a nice job making up for that challenge on the offensive end. He was a hot pickup in the wake of Chicago's frontcourt injuries but Kornet, despite a fun stat set that features threes and blocks, is only a top-175/155 (8/9-cat) value in the last couple of weeks. He's a nice upside play in 12-team leagues but isn't necessarily someone you have to be holding onto.

    Daniel Gafford (right ankle sprain) is being considered a game-time decision for Sunday's game versus the Sixers.

    Gafford will have a chance to take some minutes away from Luke Kornet when he is able to play, but expect him to be brought along slowly off of the bench.

    Daniel Gafford (right ankle sprain) and Denzel Valentine (left hamstring tightness) have both been downgraded to out ahead of Thursday's matchup vs. the Pelicans.

    Gafford's return lasted only nine minutes before spraining his ankle. He had some streaming appeal but can be dropped with this most recent injury. Chandler Hutchison could see more minutes with Valentine out while Luke Kornet and Thaddeus Young will continue to have streaming appeal while the Bulls are without three frontcourt players.

    Daniel Gafford (right ankle sprain) and Denzel Valentine (left hamstring tightness) are both listed as doubtful ahead of Thursday's contest vs. the Pelicans.

    Gafford made his return on Sunday but only played nine minutes in the game. It doesn't appear likely that Gafford or Valentine will suit up for Thursday's game. Luke Kornet and Thaddeus Young could continue to be streamable assets in standard leagues until the Bulls get some of their frontcourt players back from injury. Chandler Hutchison could also see some short-term value with Valentine sidelined.

    Luke Kornet did a bit of everything for the Bulls on Friday, chipping in 19 points on 7-of-11 shooting, adding four rebounds, two assists, two treys, one steal and one block in 28 minutes.

    This was, by far, Kornet's best game since becoming the defacto starting center for the injury-ravaged Bulls. His stat set remains his biggest allure with inconsistency being his biggest bane right now. Kornet remains a hold in 14-teamers or deeper while the Bulls' main big men are on the sidelines.

    Daniel Gafford has been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Nets.

    Gafford is on the cusp of a return so feel free to grab him for the Bulls' next game against the Raptors on Sunday. Luke Kornet will still be a nice play as a streaming option, but Gafford is close, and after that Wendell Carter Jr. will return to completely ruin Kornet's appeal.

    Luke Kornet (right ankle sprain) is probable for the contest against the Nets on Friday.

    Kornet has been streamable in deep formats since the entire Bulls big man unit broke down. Daniel Gafford is doubtful to return in this game and Wendell Carter Jr. remains out, so that should continue.

    Daniel Gafford (right thumb dislocation) is doubtful for Friday's contest vs. the Nets while six other rotation players are probable.

    It is likely that Gafford misses his ninth consecutive game on Friday. He could be in line for standard league value when he is able to return if Lauri Markkanen and Wendell Carter Jr. are still sidelined. His next opportunity to play will come Sunday against the Raptors. The expectation for the other six players is that they will all play despite being listed on the injury report. Luke Kornet is streamable for as long as Gafford and WCJ remain out.
