    Otto Porter Jr. (left foot bone edema) will miss at least the next four weeks before being re-evaluated.

    Porter's nightmarish season continues, and there is no telling if he will be ready to return when he does get re-evaluated in a month. If your league has no IR spot, it's about time to let Porter go. Kris Dunn will continue to start in the meantime and is worth a look as a steals specialist.

    Otto Porter (left foot bone edema) underwent a repeat MRI on his left foot and will be re-evaluated in two weeks.

    Porter has already missed nearly a month and now two more weeks will be added onto that. He'll be immobilized for a "brief" period of time before resuming non-contact work and therapy. It looks like Porter might not be back until very close, or maybe even after, the new year.

    Otto Porter Jr. (left foot bone bruise) should be re-evaluated on Tuesday or Wednesday, but there is no timetable for his return yet.

    Porter hasn't played in nearly a month, and it sounds like he is frustrated with the slow progress. He should be an important player when he returns, but Shaq Harrison will see more minutes until then.

    The Bulls announced on Wednesday that Otto Porter Jr. underwent a repeat MRI which revealed bone bruising not apparent on his original MRI and consistent with his ongoing symptoms.

    This actually might be good news as we now have a crystal clear timetable about his potential return. Porter should be stashed in all leagues and hopefully he will be able to return soon. Look for Chandler Hutchison to continue starting for the Bulls at small forward.

    Otto Porter (left foot sprain) is out for Wednesday's matchup with the Pistons.

    Porter is expected to miss a few weeks at the minimum, in what has been a disappointing season thus far. Chandler Hutchison has absorbed the majority of Porter's minutes while also closing out fourth quarters. He is a name to monitor in deeper leagues.

    Bulls head coach Jim Boylen said Otto Porter )left foot sprain) is still without a firm timetable, but is more likely to miss a few weeks, rather than months.

    “I don’t think it’s months. I think it’s weeks,” Boylen said. He also describe the situation and injury as a meticulous one that will take time. Injuries have plagued Porter in recent years, but he flashes top-50 upside when healthy. Chandler Hutchison will continue to absorb most of Porter's minutes while he is out.

    Otto Porter (left foot sprain) will not play on Saturday and remains without a timetable to return.

    Jim Boylen said that Porter is still dealing with some soreness, so there's no telling when he's able to return. It's been a very dispiriting start to the season but Porter is still worth holding onto unless your team is absolutely decimated by injury. Look for more Chandler Hutchison and multi-guard lineups while Porter is out.

    Otto Porter will not play on Thursday due to a left foot sprain.

    Porter last played on November 6. However, Jim Boylen said that he has shown some improvement. Hopefully, he won’t miss much more time, but it’s concerning that Porter has already dealt with a foot injury, some hip discomfort, and a minutes restriction in the first month of the season. If you’re a risk-averse manager, you should test the market as soon as he strings together some good games. Chandler Hutchison looks like the next in line to absorb Porter’s minutes, but he’s not a fantasy option outside of deep leagues.

    Otto Porter (left foot sprain) will not play on Tuesday.

    Porter was last spotted using crutches to get around and the fact that he's being ruled out a day ahead of time doesn't bode well for a speedy return. He remains worth holding onto in all formats, despite his slow start to the year. Chandler Hutchison will continue to start in his absence.

    Chandler Hutchison scored 13 points on 6-of-10 shooting, adding four rebounds, two steals and two blocks in Saturday's loss to the Rockets.

    Hutchison got the start for the Bulls with teammate Otto Porter Jr. out with a foot sprain. He ended up getting the start and played 23 minutes as a small forward. Though teammates Thaddeus Young and Luke Kornet ate into his minutes the start is a positive indication of his value to the Bulls. Even after tonight's effort he is better left on the waiver wire.

  • Denzel Valentine
    SF, Chicago Bulls

    The Bulls have recalled Daniel Gafford and Denzel Valentine on Saturday.

    Both players started for the Windy City Bulls' season opener victory on Friday. Gafford, the Bulls' rookie second round pick, shot 9-of-10 from the field for 20 points, five rebounds, three steals and blocks. Valentine finished with 25 points on 10-of-21 shooting with a whopping 18 rebounds, eight assists, one steal and four triples. Neither player is expected to make a fantasy impact on Saturday but Valentine may crack the rotation with Otto Porter out.

    Otto Porter (left foot sprain) has been ruled out of Saturday's game with the Rockets.

    Chandler Hutchison will start in his place and Jim Boylen said it would be difficult to put a timetable on Porter's return as soft injuries can be tough to work with. Porter was just starting to right the ship after a late-round start to his season, so hopefully he doesn't miss much time. He's still a hold unless we get bad news about the length of his absence.

    Otto Porter, who left Wednesday's game with a left foot contusion, was spotted using crutches at the team's facility on Friday.

    That certainly makes it seem like Porter will sit out tomorrow, though we'll wait for an official update on that front. Chandler Hutchison is the likely replacement, though the Bulls could get funky and go smaller with multi-guard lineups.

    Otto Porter Jr. suffered a left foot contusion on Wednesday and will not return.

    Chandler Hutchison started the second half of the game in Porter's stead. Porter was just starting to heat up, so it's a nasty bummer to see him limited by yet another injury. He ends the night with 13 points, four rebounds, two assists, two steals, one block and three triples.

    Zach LaVine filled up the box score with 26 points (9-for-18 FGs, 5-for-7 FTs), seven rebounds, seven assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes in a 112-118 loss to the Lakers on Tuesday.

    LaVine is looking good and in the top-50 so far this season. His percentages are a bit behind last year's, so there's hope that he'll continue to rise. His fellow starters Otto Porter and Wendell Carter Jr. had solid showings tonight as well. Porter provided 18 points and four 3-pointers while Carter had 11 points and 11 rebounds.
