    Former Bulls forward Paul Zipser is closing in on signing a two-way contract with the Brooklyn Nets.

    The Nets have an opening in their roster as they recently waived Alan Williams, who was on a two-way deal but received a lucrative offer to play in China. Zipser had offseason surgery to repair a stress fracture in his foot after a couple seasons with the Bulls where he averaged 4.7 points and 2.6 rebounds.

    Paul Zipser has been working for months on his recovery from a stress fracture in his foot but he still doesn’t know when exactly he will be able to return to the court.

    Zipser explained that there were two approaches he considered, either to get back as fast as possible or to completely let the injury heal and he chose the second. He is not a lock to return the NBA anytime soon and he might play in Germany once fully healed. “At the beginning I thought about returning to Bayern. But I have spent so much time out dealing with the injury that I have stopped long time ago to think about options, contract and where I will be playing”. We just hope the best for the German forward.

    The Bulls have officially announced the release of guard Julyan Stone and forward Paul Zipser to accommodate the Jabari Parker signing.

    No surprise here as there were already reports of Stone's release last week and Zipser telling reporters back in June that he is unlikely to return to the Bulls. It is unlikely that either plays has any fantasy impact regardless of where they sign.

    Paul Zipser expects to be released by the Bulls shortly before his contract is guaranteed in mid-July.

    Zipser is not a fantasy option on the Bulls and it seems unlikely that he will be worth much on a different roster. It's not a guarantee that he will be on an NBA roster for 2018 yet, so we'll have to wait and see what that transpires.

    Paul Zipser's surgery was to repair a fractured left foot.

    It was announced earlier in the day that he had undergone the procedure, but now more details are coming out. The fact that Zipser's deal is non-guaranteed through the middle of July probably puts him on the roster bubble, as he took a step back in his sophomore campaign. The Bulls have some moderate depth at power forward and on the wings at the moment, plus whoever they'll add in the draft and free agency. Zipser is highly unlikely to make an impact in fantasy next year but hopefully he'll be healthy either way.

    Paul Zipser recently underwent foot surgery.

    Zipser missed a good chunk of time because of continued foot soreness late in the year, capping off a sophomore season that was a decided step back from a solid rookie campaign. He probably won't be in the mix to start again anytime soon but can be a decent piece for the back-half of a rotation when fully healthy.

    Paul Zipser (left foot pain) remains out against the Nets on Saturday.

    Zipser will miss his seventh straight game and would likely not play many minutes even if he does make a return. He can safely be ignored in fantasy.

    Paul Zipser is listed as out with a foot injury while Noah Vonleh is listed as questionable with a calf injury for Friday's game in Boston.

    Zipser has been dealing with this foot injury on and off for weeks now and even if he makes a return, you don't need to worry about him. Sean Kilpatrick has stepped in nicely off the bench with his scoring and if you need help in that department he's worth a deep-league look. Vonleh left Tuesday's game with his calf injury and did not return. Even if he makes a return you can leave Vonleh on the waiver wire as the Bulls look to add a few more ping pong balls before the season ends.

    Paul Zipser (foot) is listed as out for Tuesday's contest against the Hornets.

    The opportunity is there for Zipser to get run if he can get healthy by season’s end. Prior to injury he saw 19.7 minutes per game for a three-game stretch, but shot a atrocious 15.8 percent during that span. Zipser has struggled in his short NBA career and would likely be on NBA waivers if it wasn't for his contract which still has two years remaining.

    Paul Zipser has been ruled out of Tuesday's game against the Hornets due to left foot pain.

    Zipser has missed the last four and has been dealing with this foot problem for several weeks now. He's not a fantasy option even if he does return to the court before the end of the year.

    Paul Zipser (foot) has been ruled out of Tuesday's game against the Rockets.

    Zipser has been operating in fits and starts, returning from this persistent foot injury for a few games before returning to the sidelines. He's not a fantasy option.

    Paul Zipser returned from a one-game absence on Saturday but went scoreless in 16 minutes of action.

    Zipser was starting recently but was back on the bench tonight. He's not a fantasy option.

    Paul Zipser has been cleared to face the Pistons on Saturday.

    Zipser recently spent some time on the sidelines with a foot injury but will be on call tonight if the Bulls need him. He'll be on the bench tonight but has drawn starts at power forward in the past, though it hasn't yielded any sort of fantasy value. Leave Zipser on the wire.

    Lauri Markkanen (back) will warmup and plans on playing on Friday against the Bucks.

    His back is a still a little sore, but it seems the muscle spasms have subsided enough to allow him to play. If he can’t go, Noah Vonleh will get another start. Also, Paul Zipser (foot) is out but he wasn’t an option anyway.

    Paul Zipser is doubtful for Friday’s game against Milwaukee as he continues to deal with a foot injury.

    Zipser missed nine games before making a brief return – four games in which he averaged twenty minutes per game – and now is looking unlikely to play on Friday. Denzel Valentine, Justin Holiday and David Nwaba will all get a heavy workload at the shooting guard and small forward positions as the Bulls will be very shorthanded.
