  • Markkanen logged 18 points (5-12 FG, 4-11 3Pt, 4-4 FT), seven rebounds and two steals across 34 minutes in Monday's 125-120 win over the Rockets. Markkanen was at the top of many cheat sheets as a DFS contender against the Rockets, and while he played well, he didn't quite meet value. Zach LaVine was definitely the fantasy darling of the evening on the Bulls roster, but Markannen continues to excel as a floor-stretching threat who can drill a three one minute and dominate the boards the next.

  • Markkanen compiled 29 points (10-19 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 7-8 FT), 10 rebounds and three assists across 33 minutes in Sunday's 117-101 win over the Mavericks. Markkanen logged his highest point total of the season as well as his first double-double in the win. After a seven-game absence due to COVID-19 health and safety protocols, he needed one game to warm up against the Thunder before delivering this impressive stat line. Injuries are a prevailing issue for the Arizona product, but he's a reliable source for rebounds and points when available to play. New coach Billy Donovan is building his offensive scheme around Markkanen this season, giving him a positive outlook as the season moves forward.

  • Markkanen (COVID-19 health and safety protocols) played 35 minutes Friday in the Bulls' 127-125 overtime loss to the Thunder, generating 16 points (5-14 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 3-3 FT), six rebounds, two blocks and one steal. The minutes are the most important takeaway for Markkanen, who had missed the Bulls' last seven games after entering the NBA's health and safety protocol. Markkanen had simultaneously been managing a calf injury, but the time off appears to have cleared up any concern on that front. While the extra period inflated playing time across the board, the Bulls' willingness to hand Markkanen 35 minutes in his first game in more than two weeks should be enough for fantasy managers to activate him with confidence. The power forward is averaging 17.0 points, 6.6 boards, 2.8 triples and 1.0 assists over his first five outings of 2020-21.

  • Markkanen (COVID-19 protocols) is off the injury report ahead of Friday's game against the Thunder. As expected, Markkanen will make his return Friday. He could see a reduced workload after such a long layoff. With his return, Thaddeus Young, Otto Porter and Patrick Williams are all candidates to see a reduced workload.

  • Markkanen (COVID-19 protocol) is on track to play Friday against the Thunder, Joe Cowley of the Chicago Sun Times reports. Markkanen has missed the Bulls' past seven games, not playing since the fourth contest of the season. Assuming he makes his return Friday, there's a good chance he'll be on some sort of minutes limit since it's been about two weeks since he's seen real NBA action.
