  • Zach LaVine - G - Chicago Bulls

    Zach LaVine shot 4-for-15 in Thursday's blowout loss to the Nuggets, totaling eight points, five rebounds and six assists in 29 minutes.

    Well, at least he played a lot despite the lopsided scoreboard? Kris Dunn wasn't much better with six points and three assists in 30 minutes. Flush this one and move on.

  • Zach LaVine - G - Chicago Bulls

    Zach LaVine scored 21 points on 7-of-21 shooting (2-of-7 3PTs, 5-of-6 FTs) with three rebounds, one assist, three steals and one block over 29 minutes in Saturday's loss to the Jazz.

    LaVine was dealing with left ankle soreness before Friday's game so the fact he played in the SEGABABA is generally a good sign. His efficiency will be all over the place with all the bad basketball being played in Chicago, and he's starting to see his value slip back toward the later part of the middle rounds now that the Bulls are getting healthy.

  • Zach LaVine - G - Chicago Bulls

    Zach LaVine hit 10-of-16 shots to score 29 points in 27 minutes on Friday night.

    At least one of Chicago's starters made it out alive. LaVine added three triples, four rebounds and five turnovers in a hollow line, but owners will take it considering the alternatives. It's also a great sign considering he was on the injury report with left ankle soreness heading into this one.

    Zach LaVine (left ankle soreness) will play on Friday vs. the Warriors.

    LaVine was upgraded from probable so make sure he’s in your lineups. He has a tough matchup against the Warriors and it’s the front end of a back-to-back set so hopefully LaVine doesn’t aggravate his balky ankle.

    Zach LaVine (left ankle soreness) is listed as probable for Friday's contest with the Warriors.

    LaVine briefly tweaked his groin last Sunday, and is now dealing with a sore ankle, but should be fine. It's worth keeping an eye on given his injury history, but it's likely just a formality on the injury report. Unless we learn more, treat him as you normally would.

    Zach LaVine briefly left Sunday's 100-117 loss to the Nets with an apparent groin injury but was able to return and finished with 27 points (11-for-17 shooting), two rebounds, two assists, two threes and a block.

    LaVine checked himself out of the game and was getting a look from the trainers on the sidelines but didn't end up sitting for long. Jim Boylen said after the game that he wasn't sure if LaVine got hit in the groin or strained his groin, but either way he was able to return. Fantasy owners can breathe a sigh of relief but you'll want to check back on LaVine's status before the next game just to be safe.

    Zach LaVine exploded for 31 points on 12-of-21 shooting with five boards, five triples, three dimes and two steals in Friday's OT loss to the Pacers.

    LaVine hit a buzzer beater to force the extra period but failed to send the game into another one. Still, his performance and effort are worth commending. The takeaway form this game was that both he and Lauri Markkanen were active on the offensive end and playing well together. Markkanen finished with 27 points, nine boards, four treys, two assists and one steal in 42 minutes.

    The Bulls were beaten by an 84-112 score on Wednesday night, with Zach LaVine posting a team-high 16 points on 6-of-10 from the field.

    Lauri Markkanen had 14 points, six rebounds, two assists and two triples while Kris Dunn had 14 points, three rebounds, four assists, three steals and a triple. Those three remain must-start options even with blowout risk constantly looming over their shoulders. Shaq Harrison got some extra run tonight, taking a team-high 14 shots and finishing with 11 points and three steals in 26 minutes. Don't get used to that.

  • Zach LaVine - G - Chicago Bulls

    Zach LaVine was off the mark on Sunday night, finishing with 13 points on 3-of-17 from the field in 33 minutes.

    LaVine saved his night by hitting all seven of his free throws. He also fouled out but a couple of those came in desperation mode when Jim Boylen had the Bulls fouling inside the final 30 seconds despite a multi-possession deficit. LaVine's volume-scoring game leaves you vulnerable to nights like this but the overall package has been fantastic this year, so owners will just have to live with it.

  • Zach LaVine - G - Chicago Bulls

    Zach LaVine scored 24 points (three 3s) and added three assists and a turnover in Friday’s defeat of the Wizards.

    LaVine was on a 30-minute limit and ended up playing 29 of them. This was his first game starting next to Kris Dunn and Lauri Markkanen all season so a dip in usage was to be expected. Hopefully his value will stabilize around the top-30/55 he’s currently in 8/9-cat with some upside beyond that.

  • Zach LaVine - G - Chicago Bulls

    Zach LaVine will start on Friday against the Wizards and will have a minutes cap of about 30 minutes.

    30 minutes is plenty of time for LaVine to do damage against the poor Wizards' defense. LaVine hasn't spent much time on the court with Kris Dunn as they both seem to miss games to injury when the other is playing so we'll be watching how they fit in the backcourt.

    Zach LaVine will return to the starting lineup in Friday's game against Washington.

    LaVine returned after a five-game absence on Wednesday. He came off the bench and looked like he has all season, dropping 28 points and not playing a lick of defense. Continue to roll him out as you have all year.

    Zach LaVine returned to action on Wednesday after missing five games with a sprained ankle and did not skip a beat as he dropped a team-high 28 points on 10-of-17 shooting with one rebound, two assists and three triples.

    The first thing he did before the game began was to run over and hug Tom Thibodeau. He also celebrated with an impressive outing. It's just too bad he didn't remember his former coach's emphasis on defense in this one. That said, he was the lone bright spot for his team on offense with the rest of the Bulls struggling to find some synchronicity. Kris Dunn had nine points, eight rebounds, seven assists, and two steals in 30 minutes.

    Zach LaVine (ankle) will return Wednesday after a five-game absence and come off the bench.

    LaVine is hitting the very early window of his original timetable, which is a little surprising given the Bulls' tanking efforts. LaVine may not see a full workload in this game, but you can plug him back into lineups going forward.

    Zach LaVine (left ankle) will go through pre-game warmups to determine if he is fit to play Wednesday, but coach Jim Boylen said it is "likely" that he plays.

    LaVine was upgraded to probable earlier in the day and is trending toward playing. Once we get a final word, we'll update his status. For now, you can assume he's playing.
