Bulls' Joffrey Lauvergne: Plays two minutes in team debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lauvergne failed to score (0-1 FG) and added one rebound in two minutes during Saturday's 117-99 win over the Cavaliers.

After he was acquired from the Thunder prior to the trade deadline Thursday, Lauvergne was unavailable for Friday's win over the Suns, but coach Fred Hoiberg opted to have the big man and newly-acquired point guard Cameron Payne make their Bulls debuts in the second half of the back-to-back set. Lauvergne only saw minutes in garbage time Saturday, but once he has a chance to log some practices with his new team, he could push power forwards Bobby Portis and Nikola Mirotic for playing time.

Bulls' Bobby Portis: Modest showing in second straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Portis produced seven points (2-6 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds and one assist over 19 minutes in Saturday's 117-99 win over the Cavaliers.

The second-year big man drew his second straight start at the four, but was once again outpaced in minutes by Nikola Mirotic. Portis' playing time has been under 20 minutes in the first two games since the trade of former starting power forward Taj Gibson to Oklahoma City, so his presence on the first unit is clearly no guarantee of a notable uptick in opportunity for the time being. However, the former Razorback has certainly proven capable of strong returns in both scoring and rebounding in the past, so he remains a prudent grab off the wire at this stage of the season.

Bulls' Denzel Valentine: Second straight solid effort Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valentine compiled 11 points (4-6 FG, 3-5 3Pt), two rebounds and two assists over 20 minutes in Saturday's 117-99 win over the Cavaliers.

With Doug McDermott now in Oklahoma City, the 2016 first-round pick appears to have a fairly clear path to playing time for the moment. Valentine parlayed his opportunity Saturday into his second straight double-digit scoring effort, and his long-range marksmanship was pivotal to his success once again. Valentine has now shot 61.5 percent (8-of-13) from behind the arc over the last two games, although it's notable that this level of success is atypical for him thus far in his rookie campaign. The Michigan State product had shot just 33.6 percent from the field and 33 percent from downtown over 33 games coming in to Saturday's contest, so expectations should be tempered until he can prove his hot hand isn't a temporary phenomenon.

Bulls' Nikola Mirotic: Pours in 14 off bench Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mirotic poured in 14 points (5-8 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-4 FT) and added 10 rebounds, one assist and two steals over 29 minutes in Saturday's 117-99 win over the Cavaliers.

Mirotic once again outpaced starter Bobby Portis in minutes, and, as he'd done Friday, parlayed the opportunity into an above-average stat line. The third-year big man is primed for extended run now that Taj Gibson is in Oklahoma City, and based on his performance over the first two contests following the latter's departure, he appears highly capable of delivering on his considerable upside. Mirotic has notably averaged a robust 33 minutes over the last two games, an allotment of playing time that's likely to be the norm going forward.

Bulls' Rajon Rondo: Leads bench with 15 points Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rondo tallied 15 points (6-12 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), five assists, two rebounds and two steals over 25 minutes in Saturday's 117-99 win over the Cavaliers.

Rondo didn't get the start despite the absence of Michael Carter-Williams (knee), yet managed to provide strong returns in his time off the bench. He was particularly active on the offensive end, with his 12 shot attempts the most he'd put since Jan. 10. Rondo's point totals have fluctuated in February, but he's now managed double-digit scoring efforts in four of the last seven games.
