Zach LaVine (right ankle sprain, right knee discomfort) is probable to play for the Bulls on Wednesday.
The Bulls are aching for offense with Lauri Markkanen on the sidelines and have been heavily reliant on LaVine for his scoring punch. He's slightly banged up and if he does manage to play, a maintenance rest day could be in the cards.

Zach LaVine was an offensive juggernaut in Saturday's 118-106 win over the Cavs scoring 44 points, on 16-of-30 shooting, while chipping in 10 rebounds, eight assists and a steal.
LaVine is averaging nearly 29 points a game in the month of January and has notched 40-plus points in three games this month. Beyond the scoring he has been very efficient during the stretch while also providing across the board in other categories. Remarkably, he is averaging just shy of two steals a game putting him in top-40 territory, in terms of return on investment.

Zach LaVine was inefficient in Friday's 81-98 loss to the Kings, finishing with 21 points (8-for-21 shooting), six rebounds, two assists, three triples and a block.

Kris Dunn grabbed three more steals in a well-rounded performance with 14 points (6-for-12 FGs), five rebounds, two assists, three steals and three 3-pointers in 32 minutes in a 98-111 road loss to the Bucks on Monday.
Dunn continues to hang around the back of the top-100, but he's not built for all teams. His value is almost solely tied to his 2.0 steals per game. Zach LaVine also had three steals to go with his 24 points, five rebounds, one steal and two treys in the loss.

Kris Dunn scored 13 points in Saturday's home loss to the Celtics, chipping in seven assists, four rebounds, three steals and a 3-pointer.
Dunn matched teammate Tomas Satoransky for a game-high 40 minutes and contributed solidly in those minutes.

He continues to play inconsistently but games like these have allowed him to maintain mid- to late-round value in nine category leagues.
