  • Zach LaVine - G - Chicago Bulls

    Zach LaVine (right thigh contusion) has been scratched from Wednesday's lineup.

    LaVine was probable to play and given the green light but this status update comes right at tipoff. Wayne Selden, Shaq Harrison, Ryan Arcidiacono and Antonio Blakeney are going to fill in the gaps with LaVine and Otto Porter sidelined for this one.

  • Zach LaVine - G - Chicago Bulls

    Zach LaVine (right thigh contusion) will play in Wednesday's game against the Wizards.

    LaVine was able to go through this morning's shootaround and looks primed to finish the season on a high note with Otto Porter (shoulder) getting sent for an MRI. Make sure LaVine is locked into all lineups for the stretch run.

  • Zach LaVine - G - Chicago Bulls

    Zach LaVine (right thigh contusion) went through shootaround and is probable to play the Wizards on Wednesday.

    This is great to hear if you own LaVine. With Otto Porter not playing on Wednesday, there will be even more offensive upside for LaVine. Fire him up as usual.

  • Zach LaVine - G - Chicago Bulls

    Zach LaVine (right thigh contusion) is questionable ahead of Wednesday's matchup with the Wizards.

    LaVine posted 17-8-7 in Monday's win over the Suns and didn't look to be hobbled despite a fairly quiet night on offense, so hopefully his inclusion on the report is only precautionary. Wayne Selden, Shaq Harrison and Ryan Arcidiacono will need to step up if LaVine can't play tomorrow, but hopefully it doesn't come to that.

  • Zach LaVine - G - Chicago Bulls

    Zach LaVine scored 17 points with eight rebounds, seven assists, a steal and two 3-pointers against the Suns on Monday.

    He went 5-for-10 from the floor and hit all five of his free throws tonight. LaVine delivered a full line tonight and took a backseat to his two big men. The game flow was what dictated the low shot attempts as LaVine is still a nightly threat to pop off for 30+ points. Although he committed seven turnovers, it's good to see him able to produce strong value while toning back his usage.

  • Zach LaVine - G - Chicago Bulls

    Zach LaVine played the best out of the Bulls’ pool of mediocrity on Sunday as he had 18 points and three steals in 29 minutes in a 129-102 loss to the Kings.

    LaVine shot 7-of-18 from the field and added three rebounds, three assists, two triples and one block to the box score. He is just outside the top-50 value for the season and remains a steady middle-round option. At the very least, he can be relied upon to bring great value in scoring and 3-pointers.

  • Zach LaVine - G - Chicago Bulls

    Zach LaVine (right patellar tendon strain) returned from a two-game absence on Friday and was spectacular as he dropped 31 points on 9-of-19 shooting from the field and 10-of-13 shooting from the line.

    LaVine was all over the court as he added seven rebounds, seven assists, three 3s and four turnovers in 38 minutes. He picked up the high-volume scoring where he left off and the minutes tonight is a good sign that he's not likely headed for a shutdown. Keep him slotted in as normal.

  • Zach LaVine - G - Chicago Bulls

    Zach LaVine (right patellar tendon strain) will start on Friday vs. the Clippers.

    LaVine had been practicing and was previously labeled probable but this is great news for his owners. Make sure he's in your lineup.

  • Zach LaVine - G - Chicago Bulls

    Zach LaVine (right patellar tendon strain) is probable for Friday's game against the Clippers.

    Fantasy owners can relax a bit now, after some whispers of a potential shutdown caused a bit of a panic earlier this week. LaVine should be immediately plugged back into all lineups, and despite the obvious tank going on in Chicago we're not expecting to shut anyone down as long as they're healthy. Ryan Arcidiacono will move back to the bench and Wayne Selden will lose minutes, while Antonio Blakeney might fall out of the rotation.

    Zach LaVine (patellar tendon strain) said, "You might see me in LA", after practicing again on Thursday.

    LaVine looks likely to make his return to the lineup on Friday against the Clippers. LaVine owners can continue to breathe a sigh of relief.

  • Zach LaVine - G - Chicago Bulls

    Coach Jim Boylen is confident Zach LaVine (patellar tendon strain) can play on Friday against the Clippers after LaVine practiced in full on Wednesday.

    LaVine's status for Friday's game will depend on how he responds to Wednesday's practice, but either way, this is fantastic news as fantasy owners may have dodged a bullet. We will have more clarity on the situation in the coming days.

  • Zach LaVine - G - Chicago Bulls

    Zach LaVine (patellar tendon strain) is being ruled out on Tuesday vs. the Lakers and is listed as day-to-day.

    LaVine's knee is said to have improved, and we will just continue to wait for more updates as we gain clarity on the situation. Wayne Selden and Shaq Harrison are both worth looks at the end of your bench in deep leagues. It's entirely possible that Lavine, who has had a career year, is shut down for the season. LaVine owners fighting to move on will have to look at the possibility of cutting bait.

  • Zach LaVine - G - Chicago Bulls

    Though coach Jim Boylen wouldn’t say it’s likely, Joe Cowley of the Chicago Sun-Times is reporting that there’s a real possibility that the organization shuts down Zach LaVine for the rest of the season.

    “We have not had that discussion about the rest of the season,” Boylen said. “I think what we’re hoping for is every day he responds and gets a little better. It’s not the situation or the time of the year to push a guy to try and get a certain seed or home court”. LaVine is already listed as doubtful for tonight, shampered by a strained patellar in his right knee that forced him to miss his eighth game of the season on Sunday. Overall, the athletic guard is averaging career bests in scoring (23.8 points), rebounds (4.6), assists (4.4) and shooting (46.8 percent) returning top-60 value for his owners. Wayne Selden will likely start in LaVine’s place tonight and deserves consideration as a streaming option in deeper leagues along with Shaq Harrison.

  • Zach LaVine - G - Chicago Bulls

    Zach LaVine (right paterllar tendon strain) is doubtful vs. the Lakers on Tuesday.

    LaVine missed Sunday's game and it looks like he'll miss Tuesday's game as well. He's averaging 38.0 minutes over his past seven games and is the Bulls' number one option on the offensive end. They'll likely be cautious with him as Chicago has no playoff hopes this season and obviously wouldn't want to risk their franchise guy getting injured. With LaVine likely out, Wayne Selden and Shaq Harrison should look to pick up the slack.
