    Bulls' Thaddeus Young: Plays 21 minutes off bench in win

    Thaddeus Young accrued eight points (3-6 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four rebounds, three assists and one steal in 21 minutes during Tuesday's 108-103 victory over the Cavaliers.After averaging over 31 minutes per game over the last month, Young's playing time has dipped to under 25 minutes per contest over his last three outings. Nevertheless, Young has maintained a standard league-relevant position over those games, and a top 70 spot over the last two weeks of play. However, the recent returns of Lauri Markkanen (pelvis), Otto Porter (foot) and Wendell Carter (ankle) will likely continue to complicate this situation for the veteran.

    Bulls' Thaddeus Young: Mixed bag in reduced role Friday

    Thaddeus Young posted six points (3-10 FG, 0-5 3Pt), seven rebounds, four steals, three assists and one block across 26 minutes during Friday's 108-102 loss to the Pacers.Young was ice cold shooting the rock, but he was able to contribute in other areas, notably swiping four steals -- his fourth time reaching that mark this season. Maybe more notably was his 26 minutes, which represented his smallest workload since Jan. 22. With Wendell Carter, Lauri Markkanen and Otto Porter all back from extended absences, Young's role may be reduced heading into the final stretch of the season, especially once their minutes restrictions are lifted.

Young returned to the bench, but put up nearly identical numbers to what he had been providing in a starting role. Young still possesses some short-term value with Zach LaVine (quad) out and multiple Bulls on minute restrictions.

    Bulls' Thaddeus Young: Impressive outing versus Hornets

    Thaddeus Young delivered 22 points (10-18 FG, 2-3 3Pt), 11 rebounds, four steals, one assist and one block in 36 minutes during Thursday's 103-93 loss to the Hornets.Young finished with season highs in scoring, rebounding and steals while logging his second double-double in the last three tilts. Young has been quiet for the most part this season, with zero double-doubles prior to this recent stretch. However, he has reached double figures in scoring in 10 straight games. For as long as Chicago remains hampered by injuries, Young can probably be expected to continue earning 30-plus minutes per night.

    Bulls' Thaddeus Young: Solid in loss

    Thaddeus Young added 11 points (5-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt), six rebounds, three steals and an assist in 31 minutes during the Chicago Bulls' 125-119 Thursday night loss to the Pelicans.It typically isn't sexy, but Young does provide reliable veteran production and Thursday was no exception. Young reached double-digit scoring for the seventh consecutive game and has recorded a steal in all but one of them. In this current role he warrants a look, especially if available in deeper leagues.

    Bulls' Thaddeus Young: Paces team in scoring

    Thaddeus Young produced 21 points (9-12 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 0-1 FT), seven rebounds, two steals and one assist across 30 minutes Sunday in the Chicago Bulls' 129-102 loss to the Raptors.Though Zach LaVine typically serves as the engine of the Bulls' offense, he only attempted 10 field goals on the day, paving the way for Young to handle more usage. The veteran was able to parlay the added touches into his best scoring total of the season, though it was fueled by unsustainable shooting from the floor and three-point range. Still, Young has reached double figures in six straight games while chipping in 5.2 rebounds and 1.3 steals per contest in that stretch, so he's a viable 12-team option in eight- and nine-category leagues with both Lauri Markkanen (pelvis) and Otto Porter (foot) likely to remain out through the All-Star break.
