Zach LaVine

  • Zach LaVine - G - Chicago Bulls

    Zach LaVine battled ankle and knee injuries in 2018-19 and ended up missing 19 games but still managed top put up top-35/60 value in 8/9-cat formats.

    LaVine came out of the gates firing this season and he ended up posting a career high 23.7 points per game on 46.7% from the field, 37.4% from the 3-point line and 83.2% from the charity stripe. He should be able to replicate this season, to a degree, next season, depending on who the Bulls draft. He could see a slight decline in usage with a full season of Otto Porter Jr., Lauri Markkanen and Wendell Carter Jr.

  • Zach LaVine - G - Chicago Bulls

    Zach LaVine will miss Tuesday's game as he continues to deal with a right thigh contusion and right knee tendinitis.

    LaVine hasn't officially been shut down but there's no way we'll see him again this year. The Bulls will keep leaning on Wayne Selden, Walter Lemon Jr., Shaq Harrison, Ryan Arcidiacono, Antonio Blakeney and Rawle Alkins in the backcourt.

  • Zach LaVine - G - Chicago Bulls

    Jim Boylen was noncommittal when asked about the rest of the year status for injured starters Zach LaVine (right thigh, right knee), Otto Porter Jr. (right shoulder strain) and Kris Dunn (back).

    Boylen indicated there was no "final decision" made on any of injured starters aside from Lauri Markkanen (rapid heart rate) for Chicago's final two games of the season. We can't think of a reason why any of them would come back for these meaningless games, but we will keep updating their status until they are. Fantasy owners that are still in it to the bitter end can still expect value from all of Chicago's fill-in starters going forward.

    Zach LaVine (right thigh, right knee) will not play on Saturday vs. the Sixers.

    While LaVine hasn't officially been ruled out for the rest of the season, it's looking extremely doubtful he makes it back and owners should have moved on.

    Zach LaVine (right thigh, right knee) missed practice on Thursday.

    Fantasy owners can move on from LaVine, as he is unlikely to play again this season. The Bulls continue to throw out relative unknowns on a night-to-night basis. Walter Lemon Jr., Shaquille Harrison and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot have all been quality options since being inserted into featured roles.

  • Zach LaVine - G - Chicago Bulls

    The Bulls are listing Zach LaVine (right thigh, right knee) as out vs. the Wizards on Wednesday.

    The early out designation doesn't seem to bode well for LaVine to make a return this season, but it is anyone's guess as to what the team will ultimately decide to do. Shaq Harrison, Walter Lemon Jr., Wayne Selden, Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot, Antonio Blakeney, Rawle Alkins, Ryan Arcidiacono and seemingly anyone with a uniform will contiunue to get lots of run for the remaining games.

  • Zach LaVine - G - Chicago Bulls

    Zach LaVine (right thigh, right knee) did not travel with the Bulls on their current two-game road trip.

    LaVine had already been ruled out of Monday's game and we're guessing that he won't meet up with the team for Wednesday, either. Chicago has a home game on Saturday but you shouldn't get your hopes up. Jim Boylen's still playing semantics and saying that they haven't decided to shut LaVine down officially, but it certainly looks like he's done for the year. Shaq Harrison, Walter Lemon Jr., Wayne Selden, Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot, Antonio Blakeney, Rawle Alkins and Ryan Arcidiacono will get lots of run over the last week and change.

    Zach LaVine (right thigh, right knee) has been ruled out Monday vs. the Knicks.

    LaVine has appeared in just three of his last ten games and with the Bulls having just five games left he may not be returning this season. With LaVine out, Shaq Harrison should continue to pick up the bulk of minutes and is definitely worth adding if you haven't already.

    Zach LaVine (right thigh, right knee) will not play on Saturday against the Raptors.

    LaVine was already doubtful for this one and while the plan is for him to play again this year, the organization may be gently nudging all parties in the other direction in favor of better lottery odds. Shaq Harrison has quickly become a solid fantasy option and should be in all lineups tonight, while Wayne Selden and Antonio Blakeney are dart throws if you need points.

    Zach LaVine (right thigh contusion, knee) is doubtful to play on Saturday vs. the Raptors.

    With LaVine looking like he’ll miss another one for the tanking Bulls, it’ll once again be Shaq Harrison, Wayne Selden and Antonio Blakeney getting a whole lot of usage. Harrison is the best bet to produce of those three.

  • Zach LaVine - G - Chicago Bulls

    Jim Boylen expects Zach LaVine (right thigh contusion, knee) to play again this season.

    That's Boylen's take on the situation and the organization may opt to shut LaVine down, but for now he remains someone to hold if at all possible. He's only played in three of the last eight games, which has allowed players like Shaq Harrison, Wayne Selden, Ryan Arcidiacono and Antonio Blakeney to pick up extra minutes. There isn't much to see here for fantasy purposes outside of Harrison, who has returned top-65 value over the last two weeks.

    The Bulls are listing Zach LaVine (right thigh contusion) as out for Wednesday's tilt vs. the Blazers.

    LaVine will join Kris Dunn, Lauri Markkanen and Otto Porter on the sidelines for Wednesday's game. Shaq Harrison has been balling with top-30 value in 9-cat leagues his last three games, and should continue to produce. The rest of the Bulls rotation is also in a prime position to provide cheap value on a small DFS slate in the absence of almost the full starting lineup.

    Zach LaVine (right thigh contusion) has been ruled out of Tuesday's game vs. the Raptors.

    LaVine has only played in three of his past seven games and the Bulls are definitely being cautious with him. He'll probably make it back before the season comes to an end so his next shot to play will be on Wednesday vs. the Trail Blazers and then Saturday vs. the Raptors again.
