  • Otto Porter Jr. - F - Chicago Bulls

    Otto Porter (right rotator cuff strain) plans on returning this season.

    The Bulls have nine games left, not counting tonight's game that Porter will miss. He's still a shutdown candidate despite his own desire to play, but the fact that he is so upbeat following an MRI does mean that we're probably looking at a day-to-day situation here. It's going to be a big headache for fantasy owners until the Bulls provide a target return date, if they do at all. We wouldn't blame you for holding or dropping either way.

    Otto Porter Jr. (right rotator cuff strain) is out for Wednesday's game against the Wizards.

    This is a big blow to owners of Porter, as he doesn't get the chance at a revenge game. Shaq Harrison and Wayne Selden will look to absorb the majority of Porter's minutes, and are both decent streamers in a good matchup. Porter went through an MRI and Jim Boylen said simply, "He's hurt." This late in the fantasy season, it's time to look at dropping Porter if you need the space.

    Otto Porter Jr. (right rotator cuff strain) is doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Wizards.

    This is a big blow to owners, as Porter looks unlikely to play against his old team. Wayne Selden has started in the past at the three, while Shaq Harrison figures to get a substantial minutes bump as well. Both Harrison and Selden make for quality streams in a good matchup if Porter can't give it a go on Wednesday.

    Otto Porter (right rotator cuff strain) will not play on Monday against the Suns.

    Porter scored eight points on 3-of-9 from the field in Sunday's blowout loss to the Kings, and maybe the injury had as much to do with his quiet 24-minute game as the scoreboard. He's been an early-round player since joining the Bulls and his absence is a huge blow to fantasy owners, who will now get two games maximum out of OP this week. Shaq Harrison is the most likely to see extra minutes, with Wayne Selden and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot the other candidates to play more off the bench as the Bulls reshuffle the rotation.

    Otto Porter Jr. (knee contusion) is probable for Friday's game against the Clippers after returning to practice on Thursday.

    Porter has been a top-20 player since joining the Bulls and will continue to provide early-round value for as long as he is in the lineup.

    Otto Porter Jr. (knee contusion) did not practice on Wednesday.

    This missed practice puts Porter's availability for Friday's game in question. Wayne Selden would pick up the start if Porter is unable to go and is worth a deep-league look.

    Otto Porter Jr. had 19 points, nine boards, two assists and four triples in a loss to the Lakers on Tuesday.

    Porter has put up second-round value over the past month, and as long as he doesn't get shut down, he could easily continue that trend. Robin Lopez also continued to produce with 20 points, seven rebounds and three assists.

    Otto Porter scored 17 points in Sunday's loss, chipping in six rebounds, a block and three 3-pointers while shooting 6-of-12 from the field in 26 minutes.

    The Pistons were up by 23 after three quarters so the bench guys got to run the show in the final frame. Lauri Markkanen had a similar line with 17 points (6-for-13 shooting), six rebounds, two assists, a steal, a block and three 3-pointers while Robin Lopez had just nine points, six boards and a block. Keep all three locked into lineups moving forward.

  • Zach LaVine - G - Chicago Bulls

    Zach LaVine has 24 points in Friday’s home loss to the Pistons but he did it in a very inefficient fashion, missing 5-of-10 free throws and turning the ball over five times.

    LaVine added six rebounds, a 3, a steal and a block but he’s really cooled off after bringing back top-40 value last week. Hopefully he can get back go where he was. Otto Porter added 23 points, one 3, eight assists and two steals and continues to roll as a member of the Bulls.

  • Otto Porter Jr. - F - Chicago Bulls

    Otto Porter delivered a mixed bag on Tuesday night, going 3-of-11 from the field to score seven points but also posting four rebounds, two assists, four steals, two blocks and a triple.

    Those cash counters are gold and Porter's track record of efficient scoring means you're not sweating the off night from the field, even if his shot profile is changing as a featured player in Chicago. Porter sat out on Sunday for rest and is in line for a very strong finish to the year.

    Otto Porter (rest) has been ruled out on Sunday vs. the Hawks.

    Porter is coming off of a 4OT game in which he played 54 minutes vs. the Hawks on Friday so this makes a ton of sense. The Bulls will matchup against the Hawks again today but both teams will likely be tired and the odds of another crazy OT game are slim. With Porter out expect Shaq Harrison, Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot and Wayne Selden to pick up the slack.

    Otto Porter played 55 minutes in Friday’s quadruple-overtime road win over the Hawks and scored 31 points to go with seven 3s, 10 rebounds four assists and a steal.

    Porter has been a top-30 play since being traded to Chicago and his strong play largely mitigates the Bulls’ poor schedule for the H2H playoffs.

    Otto Porter Jr. (lower left leg strain) had nine cash counters against the Grizzlies on Wednesday, with three 3-pointers, three steals and three blocks.

    Overall, he had 20 points on 7-of-12 shooting with six rebounds as well. This was a great performance from Porter Jr., who should retain his top-50 value with the Bulls for the remainder of the season. He has been a nice compliment to Zach LaVine and Lauri Markkanen, who had 22 points and 10 rebounds in this one.

    Otto Porter (lower left leg strain) is in the starting lineup on Wednesday night, his return from a one-game absence.

    Porter first got hurt on Saturday but will end up missing minimal time. Fire him up for a solid matchup with the Grizzlies, as he's been heavily involved in Chicago's offense since joining the Bulls. Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot will move back to the bench.
