Zach LaVine (left quad strain) is officially listed as doubtful for Thursday's matchup vs. the Magic.
LaVine told the media on Tuesday that he expects to return over the next week or so. It appears highly unlikely that he returns for Thursday's game which is a welcome sign for those who picked up Shaq Harrison. Harrison should continue to have appeal in standard leagues as he has produced 7th/6th round value over the past month. The Bulls play twice over the weekend after Thursday's game so continue to monitor for updates over the coming days.

Shaq Harrison continued to play well on Tuesday night, stuffing the box score with eight points, 10 rebounds, four assists, a steal and three blocks.
Harrison has taken off lately and is posting top-90/65 value (8/9-cat) in the last month. He's a terrific pickup for any GMs in need of defensive stats and he has likely carved out a full-time rotation spot even after Zach LaVine returns. Shaq will be a steals specialist at minimum through the end of the season.

Zach LaVine felt good after a workout on Tuesday and said that he expects to return sometime in the next week or so.
This is a tough pill to swallow for owners fighting for a playoff spot, but he should be back to help in the playoffs if you're there. Colby White will continue to see a usage bump until LaVine can get back out there, while Shaq Harrison is remaining in the starting lineup for now.

Shaq Harrison finished Sunday's road loss with six points, eight rebounds, three assists, four steals and a block in a team-high 36 minutes of action.
Harrison played like a guy who doesn't want to lose his starting spot. Otto Porter appears to be turning the corner but it's clear that Jim Boylen likes Harrison's defense, which gives him a floor as a steals specialist. We would expect his playing time to dwindle but Harrison's always been a premier per-minute thief.

Zach LaVine (left quad strain) is expected to practice on Saturday with the possibility of playing on Sunday against the Nets.
LaVine has missed the last three contests but looks to be nearing a return depending on how practice goes tomorrow. The 24-year old is entering his prime and having his best year as a pro with career highs in multiple categories, averaging top-40 per game value and top-20 total value in standard leagues. His return will would reduce the roles of Shaq Harrison and Denzel Valentine.

Shaq Harrison had 25 points, four rebounds, four assists and three steals in 33 minutes on Friday vs. the Pacers.
Harrison has held fourth round value over the past seven games as his playing time has increased and within the top-200 over the last two months on a per game basis. Kris Dunn being out for the season has opened the door for Harrison and he finally looks like he might be taking advantage of the opportunity. He is a streamable option for desperate fantasy managers.

Chandler Hutchison (shoulder), Denzel Valentine (hamstring) and Luke Kornet (ankle) will all be held out against the Thunder on Tuesday.
The Bulls will once again have only nine active players for tonight's game as Ryan Arcidiacono, Shaquille Harrison and Adam Mokoka should again see minutes in the high teens. None are worth much of a look, as the Bulls have five days to get their roster healthy before their next game on Saturday.

Ryan Arcidiacono didn't take advantage of a start on Thursday night, scoring just three points and pulling down three boards in 28 minutes.
There's really nothing to see here for Arcidiacono, who got a spot start perhaps to keep Coby White from completely shooting the Bulls out of the game. White tried his best, shooting 3-of-11 for his 12 points in 30 minutes. White has more upside than Arcidiacono or Shaquille Harrison (13 points in 18 minutes), but it's best to leave all of these guys on the waiver wire.

Jim Boylen stated that Chandler Hutchison will miss Wednesday's game due to a right shoulder strain.
Hutchison last played on November 27 and will have an MRI today. Shaq Harrison and Kris Dunn have seen their minutes increase, but neither has been stellar.

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.

Chandler Hutchison (right shoulder strain) has been ruled out for Monday's game.
Hutchison will be re-evaluated later in the week and was already considered doubtful. He's not a recommended pickup even when healthy. Shaq Harrison and Kris Dunn should soak up his playing time for now.

Coby White scored 28 points on 12-of-19 shooting, chipping in two rebounds, three assists and two steals in Saturday's win over the Hornets.
White outplayed teammate Shaquille Harrison, whom got the start at PG, and ended up playing 34 minutes this contest. White was simply marvelous this game and was incredibly efficient from all over the court. He was able to chip in four 3's and continues to be a great addition to the Bulls backcourt and savvy fantasy owners that picked him off of the waiver wire early this season.

Chandler Hutchison (shin splints) will be active, but won't start on Saturday versus the Bulls.
Shin splints are painful and not something to rush back from. Shaq Harrison has been playing well during his short stint in the starting lineup and should continue to hold it down until Otto Porter returns or Hutchison outplays him.
November 22, 2019, 11:25 pmShaquille HarrisonPG, Chicago Bulls
Shaquille Harrison stuck with the Bulls' starting lineup on Friday and produced a respectable 10 points on 3-of-8 shooting with two rebounds, four dimes and two steals to his name.
Harrison remains a solid short-term hold in the wake of the injuries to Otto Porter Jr. (foot bone bruise) and Chandler Hutchison (shin splints). Be ready to drop Harrison once they get healthy.
November 22, 2019, 6:29 pmChandler HutchisonSF, Chicago Bulls
Chandler Hutchison (shin splints) will be absent for the Bulls-Heat clash on Friday and is doubtful to face the Hornets on Saturday.
Get Shaq Harrison in those DFS lineups folks. Hutchison would be getting the lion's share of small forward minutes with Otto Porter out, but for now they should all be heading Harrison's way. Harrison went nuts on Wednesday. Hutchison is traveling with the team to Charlotte but will be doubtful for that game as well.
