  • Bulls head coach Billy Donovan said Porter (back) has been ramping up his activity "quite a bit" of late, but the forward has not yet resumed practicing with the team, K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reports. The Bulls aren't putting a timeline on Porter's return from the back injury, but Donovan's comments hint that the 27-year-old will most likely be held out for the team's final three games before the All-Star break. Once he's cleared to play again, Porter will likely step back into the 20-to-25-minute role off the bench that he held prior to being shut down with the injury, though the Bulls will presumably hold him out of one half of back-to-back sets.

  • Porter (back) has resumed shooting on the court and is doing more physically, Cody Westerlund of 670TheScore.com reports. Nothing has been reported to indicate that Porter has a strong chance of returning before the first half of the season ends March 3. It's good that he's making progress, but until he starts taking contact, his return timetable is murky.

  • Porter (back) appears to be in danger of missing the entirety of the Bulls' remaining first-half schedule, which concludes March 3, Sam Smith of the Bulls' official site reports. Porter has already missed six consecutive games while recovering from back spasms, and he was limited to rehab work in the Bulls' most recent practice Sunday. For now, the team isn't offering a concrete timeline for Porter's return, but unless he's able to steadily increase his activity in practice over the next week or so, he'll likely remain out through the All-Star break. The ongoing absences of Porter and Lauri Markkanen (shoulder) have opened up more minutes at either forward spot for Patrick Williams, Thaddeus Young, Garrett Temple and Denzel Valentine.

  • Porter (back) went through rehab work and didn't participate at Sunday's practice, Mike McGraw of the Chicago Daily Herald reports. The 27-year-old hasn't seen the court since Feb. 1, and it doesn't appear he'll be returning to game action within the next few days, at least. Denzel Valentine and Garrett Temple are in line to have expanded roles in his continued absence.

  • Bulls head coach Billy Donovan said Monday that Porter (back) is without a timeline for a return to game action, Darnell Mayberry of The Athletic reports. According to Cody Westerlund of 670TheScore.com, Donovan suggested the Bulls want to give Porter some time off to minimize the recurring nature of his back issues, which have now sidelined him for four straight games. He can be expected to miss the Bulls' final two games of the week, and his absence could extend into the second half of February, depending on how his back responds to rest. Denzel Valentine and Garrett Temple should be the main beneficiaries of Porter missing time, while Patrick Williams, Thaddeus Young and Daniel Gafford absorb most of the minutes that had gone to injured big men Wendell Carter (quadriceps) and Lauri Markkanen (shoulder).
