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.

Robin Lopez scored 22 points on 9-of-12 shooting, adding eight rebounds, three assists, three blocks and one steal in Friday's 121-128 loss to the Clippers.
Lopez has been a top-120 play over the last two weeks and lines like this keep him in the standard-league conversation. He's a good booster for those big-man numbers, even with the Bulls' light schedule ahead.

Robin Lopez scored 14 points and added four rebounds and a block in Friday's loss to the Pistons but had four turnovers and five fouls in a difficult matchup against Andre Drummond.
Drummond's not an easy matchup against anyone his size but he really got the better of Lopez tonight. Still, Lopez has been a top-100 play over his last two weeks and is still a hold in standard leagues.

Robin Lopez was at it again on Tuesday night, delivering 20 points on 9-of-18 from the field to go with nine rebounds and three blocks.
We weren't expecting to see Lopez take on such a large role in the offense (with the second-most shots on the team) but we're not going to complain. He's going to cruise to a middle-round finish the rest of the way with no threats to his playing time. The Bulls, aside from Kris Dunn, have settled into a very nice rhythm for fantasy owners. Lauri Markkanen went for 14 & 13 while Zach LaVine scored 27 points on a solid 10-of-22 from the field.

Robin Lopez finished Sunday's home loss with 16 points on 8-of-10 from the field while also adding six rebounds, four assists and a block.
More of the same for RoLo, who is looking like a safe top-100 option for the rest of the season now that the buyout deadline has passed. Congratulations if you picked him up early on. Lauri Markkanen scored a team-high 19 in this one, adding nine boards, three triples and two steals, but also went 6-for-21 from the field in a lackluster day.

Robin Lopez kept up his strong play with 11 points, 11 rebounds and three blocks in Friday’s quadruple-overtime win over the Hawks.
Lopez has been a top-75 play in 9-cat over the last month and with no buyout in the cards, he looks like he’ll be locked into a productive starting role down the stretch. He should be owned in standard leagues.

Robin Lopez put up four points, three rebounds and five blocks in 40 minutes in a win over the Grizzlies on Wednesday.
Lopez is a top-60 value over the past two weeks and has fit in nicely to his starting role. The buyout deadline is Friday, but it seems as though he will remain on the Bulls, which is the best thing for his fantasy value. He should be owned in all formats and can provide middle-round value until the end of the season.

A Robin Lopez buyout seems unlikely by Friday's deadline.
The deadline for buyout players to join playoff teams is this Friday. When asked Friday about a potential buyout Lopez said, "I haven't even been thinking about it. We've been having a lot of fun out on the court right now and I'm relishing it." With the Bull's dearth of talent behind Lopez, it seems he has a good chance to stay put. Lopez staying on the Bulls is the best thing for his fantasy value, as he has been a top 45/35 player in 8/9 cat leagues over the last two weeks with 21.5 points, 5.0 rebs and 1.5 blocks on .654 shooting.

Robin Lopez scored 26 points on 10-of-16 shooting with three rebounds, two assists, a block and a 3-pointer on Monday.
Lopez logged a ridiculous 34 minutes tonight and as long as Coach Boylen is going to play him the 25.8 minutes he has been in February he makes for an attractive standard league option. His stat set isn't appealing but the minutes are the money.
