Portis had 17 points (6-11 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, three steals and two assists in 22 minutes during Thursday's 111-110 victory over Memphis. Portis provided a nice spark off the bench, helping guide the Bulls to the narrow victory. He is known for his ability to put up points and boards but has been better on the defensive end of late. Over the last five games, he has a combined 10 steals, something that is out of ordinary for Portis. If he is able to add some defense to his game it will boost his overall value now and into the future.
Portis scored 19 points (8-19 FG, 3-6 3Pt) while adding nine rebounds, two steals and an assist in 27 minutes off the bench during Tuesday's 112-106 loss to the Clippers. He just missed collecting his 11th double-double of the season while leading the Bulls in scoring once again. Coach Fred Hoiberg continues to shuffle around his lineup, so Portis could wind up back in the starting five before the season is done, but even in a sixth-man role the 23-year-old has some fantasy upside.
Portis tallied 21 points (9-16 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT), 10 rebounds, five assists and one steal across 27 minutes in Sunday's 129-122 victory over the Hawks. Portis continues to be inconsistent for the Bulls off the bench, as his 21-point outburst comes on the heels of a two-point showing his last time out. Portis has become more of a passer from the post however, as the five assists matches his season-high, which he set in the last contest and only boosts his value. If Portis can be consistent scoring the ball and hitting his shots, he will be an extremely valuable sixth man for the Bulls moving forward.
Portis provided 15 points (6-12 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 10 rebounds, two assists, and two steals in 30 minutes during Wednesday's 119-110 win over the Grizzlies. After delivering a dud in Monday's matchup with the Celtics, Portis came to play in this one, posting his ninth double-double of the season. He managed 11 double-doubles through his first two campaigns combined, so a couple more and Portis will match that in 2017-18 alone. He has enjoyed a breakout season of sorts, though the impending return of Robin Lopez (Coach's Decision) could result in a few less minutes to go around for Portis and the rest of the regulars in the frontcourt rotation.
Portis had just seven points (2-8 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT), six rebounds and one assist in 27 minutes during Monday's 105-89 loss to Boston. Portis moved into the starting lineup as expected but failed to deliver for his owners. After scoring in double-figures for 11 straight games, he put up a lowly seven points to go along with six rebounds and no defensive stats. The move into the first five should afford him some extra playing time but could take the shine off some of his value as he now has to share the ball with more aggressive players such as Zach LaVine and Lauri Markkanen.
