    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.

    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.

    Zach LaVine (left quad strain) will miss Tuesday's matchup against the Cavs.

    LaVine will miss his fifth game in a row on Tuesday when the Bulls take on the Cavs. Coby White has already told sources that he will be making his first start. He's definitely the big winner until LaVine gets back on the court so keep rolling Coby out there.

    Zach LaVine (left quad strain) has been ruled out of Sunday's game vs. the Nets. .

    This was pretty expected as LaVine said he's looking at missing about a week. The Bulls have a four game week next week so hopefully he'll be fresh and ready to suit up for all of those games. When he does come back, Shaq Harrison and Denzel Valentine will lose opportunity.

    Zach LaVine (left quad strain) is formally listed as questionable for Sunday's game.

    LaVine said he was looking at about a week on the sidelines iast of last weekend, so this tracks. Hopefully he's able to return to the court tomorrow and put fantasy GMs at ease ahead of Chicago's four-game week next week. If he does return, it'll limit the work for Denzel Valentine and Shaq Harrison.

    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.

    Zach LaVine (left quad strain) will not play on Friday.

    As was expected, with LaVine admitting that his injury was likely a week-long affair. With him missing his first game on Monday, it's possible that he's back on the court next week. Continue to monitor the situation as the rest of the active Bulls split up LaVine's massive usage.

    Zach LaVine (left quad strain), who will not play in Wednesday's game against the Wolves, said that he will probably be out a week as he takes a cautious approach with his injury.

    The Bulls have started to get healthy with the returns of Wendell Carter Jr. and Otto Porter Jr, while Lauri Markkanen is on the verge of a return as well. The team would like to see their core together for a few games to close out the season, but won't be pushing anyone to play if they aren't ready. Keep an eye on how LaVine progresses throughout the week.

    Zach LaVine (left quad strain) is now doubtful to play on Monday, per Jim Boylen.

    LaVine was previously listed as probable due to quad soreness. This is terrible news for the Bulls and fantasy GMs alike. The healthy Bulls will split up LaVine's 34.8 minutes and 20 field goal attempts, and Coby White — assuming he plays through his probable tag — probably has the best shot at putting up gaudy scoring numbers.

  • Wendell Carter Jr.
    C, Chicago Bulls

    Wendell Carter Jr. (right ankle sprain), Zach LaVine (left quad soreness), Coby White (back) and Ryan Arcidiacono (back) are all probable for Monday's game.

    Nobody here seems to be in danger of missing any time, though Carter is the one to watch considering he returned from a 22-game absence on Saturday. Check back tomorrow for confirmation but you can plan on deploying all these Bulls as usual.

    Zach LaVine was seen riding a stationary bike to loosen his quad which he tweaked in pregame warmups for Saturday's game, but said he does not expect to miss time.

    The Bulls cannot afford for LaVine to get hurt or aggravate that already tweaked quad, so expect them to exercise extreme caution when it comes to his health. Based on how he played tonight, it does not appear to be serious, however, it'd be prudent to check the injury report in case he pops up.

    Zach LaVine dealt with a bit of foul trouble but was not slowed enough to prevent him from posting 26 points on 10-of-25 shooting with three rebounds, seven assists, one steal and four 3-pointers.

    The "Zach Attack" kept going tonight, but it was the Knicks' offense that got the better of the Bulls in this one. Wendel Carter Jr. returned to action and Lauri Markkanen is on his way back soon and LaVine will get some extra help to grab those Ws. That said, there's no serious catalyst for him to slow his torrid pace in scoring this season.

    Zach LaVine recorded his sixth 40-point game of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Thunder with 41 points on 19-of-35 shooting, three treys, five rebounds, four dimes and one steal in 39 minutes.

    LaVine has been one of the league's more prolific scorers this season and even the recent breakout performances of Coby White have not done anything to slow him down. On a sad note, LaVine did miss all three shot attempts from the line and committed five turnovers, but it's something owners will surely be able to look past given his high-volume scoring tonight.

    Zach LaVine was awesome against the Wizards on Sunday, accounting for 32 points (11-of-20 FG), six 3-pointers, four rebounds, three assists, three steals and one block.

    LaVine did have nine turnovers which is a pain for 9-CAT leagues, but we can't complain when he performs like this. While the team has not been winning games, LaVine has proven he is an early-round player in fantasy circles this season. He's a do it all guard that can thrive in any format.
