Bucks will rest Robin Lopez and Pat Connaughton during Sunday's preseason game versus the Wizards.
Lopez is in line to back up his brother Brook Lopez, but could get some run along side of him as well. Neither Connaughton or Robin Lopez are worth drafting in standard leagues.

Brook Lopez did his thing in Wednesday's preseason tilt vs. the Jazz, posting 14 points on 6-of-8 shooting, which included two treys.
Lopez dropped a prototypical line in just 20 minutes on the floor, adding three boards and one blocked shot to the box scores. Twin brother Robin Lopez logged 13 minutes off the bench and was good for 11 points, one block and one trey.

Robin Lopez started next to his brother on Monday in his Bucks preseason debut and had 14 points, five rebounds, three blocks and one 3-pointer in 19 minutes.
The Bucks sat three starters, so the Lopez twins got to play together. That's a good sign for both players' minutes outlooks this season that they can once again share the floor. We'll have to see if Robin launching three shots from deep is really a thing, too.

According to Chris Haynes, Robin Lopez has reached an agreement on a deal with the Bucks.
Ro-Lo joins his brother Bro-Lo (Brook Lopez) in what should be an interesting frontcourt pairing/rotation. The deal is reportedly for two years at the full room exception with the second year being a player option.

The Bucks are expressing interest in signing Robin Lopez, per Shams Charania.
The world needs the Lopez brothers on the same team as the entertainment factor would be off the charts. Robin has been connected to the Knicks already, though there should be a number of teams that get in on the bidding here. His days as a standard-league fantasy asset are likely over but Lopez is a steady, veteran hand who would provide excellent frontcourt depth for any roster.

Shams Charania is reporting that the Knicks have targeted free agent Robin Lopez.
Lopez played for the Knicks in the 2015-16 season where he started all 82 games but if he heads back this time, it will be to back up Mitchell Robinson according to Shams. Lopez became fantasy relevant down the stretch last season when the Bulls finally decided to give him some run but that may not continue next year especially if he signs to be a backup.

Robin Lopez is unlikely to return to the Bulls next season, per K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune.
Lopez was looking for a buyout last season but Chicago held onto him to help establish a positive culture, and the big man ended up playing a healthy amount down the stretch. Lopez will have no shortage of suitors on the open market as a quality player who won't break the bank. He's unlikely to hold much fantasy value, however, while Wendell Carter Jr. should be looking at big minutes for the Bulls.

Robin Lopez scored 12 points on 6-for-13 shooting in Wednesday's season finale defeat at the hands of the Sixers.
Things really opened up for Lopez once Wendell Carter Jr. went down around the All-Star break. He finished the final two months as a top-120 player and played the entire season at a top-215 value in 8 and 9-cat formats. He's almost guaranteed to find a new home next year, but unfortunately, it will likely come with fewer minutes.

Robin Lopez led the Bulls in scoring on Monday with 29 points on 12-of-18 shooting to go with seven boards, two assists and a block.
Lopez is still worth owning as the season winds down and should continue to play big minutes as nothing he does will help the Bulls win games which is exactly what they're looking for. The rebounding numbers are a bit low, but the efficient scoring makes it all worthwhile.

Robin Lopez only logged 23 minutes against the Raptors on Saturday night, finishing with two points, one rebound and three assists.
Lopez is a fine, top-100 option when the Bulls can keep games close enough for him to receive substantial playing time, but we can't imagine that it'll happen much over the last few games with Otto Porter, Lauri Markkanen, Kris Dunn and Zach LaVine either officially or unofficially out for the season. RoLo has been outside the top-200 over the last two weeks and fantasy owners who are still playing should cut ties at this point. Those extra minutes have been going to Cristiano Felicio, who was mostly useless with four points and eight boards in 25 minutes tonight.

Robin Lopez posted 15 points on 7-of-14 shooting to go along with nine rebounds and four assists in Wednesday's loss to the Blazers
Now that Lauri Markkanen is shut down for the year Lopez and Cristiano Felicio (15 points, five rebounds, two assists and a steal on 4-of-6 shooting from the field) are the last men standing in Chicago's front court. Lopez is must-start to close out the year while Felicio is now on the radar in deep leagues for those in need of a center.

Robin Lopez finished Tuesday's loss to the Raptors with 10 points, four rebounds and three assists in 26 minutes.
We haven't talked about Lopez in a hot second because his minutes and lines have been fairly muted with the Bulls getting throttled on the regular. He's a late-round guy going forward but should be closer to a top-80 play on nights where Chicago can actually keep it close. Cristiano Felicio had six points, eight rebounds, two assists and a steal in 22 minutes off the bench.

Robin Lopez led the Bulls in scoring on Monday with 24 points on 11-of-14 shooting while adding seven rebounds, two assists and a block.
Lopez absolutely crushed whenever Deandre Ayton was off the floor and he's been solid for the Bulls as we close out the year. He shouldn't be on any waiver wires as a top-70 value over the last month with averages of 15.6 points, 6.5 rebounds and 1.8 blocks on .590 shooting.
The Bulls were supposed to take a step forward with their young core. A lot of teams are supposed to do a lot of things...
