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.

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.
