Top Nikola Vucevic News

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Quiet in loss to Nets

    Vucevic registered six points (3-9 FG, 0-3 3Pt), nine rebounds, five assists, one block and one steal in 37 minutes during Sunday's 118-109 loss to the Nets.

    Vucevic was held to single-digit points for the first time of the season Friday against the Raptors (nine points), only to hit rock bottom Sunday night with a season-low six points. The Bulls have lost four straight games and have a 5-13 record, leading to several players being mentioned in the rumor mill as possible trade candidates.

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Held to nine points

    Vucevic ended Friday's 121-108 loss to the Raptors with nine points (4-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt), eight rebounds, five assists and one steal in 36 minutes.

    For the first time this season, Vucevic was unable to score in double digits. He's certainly been trending down in recent games, averaging 13.6 points, 9.2 rebounds and 3.2 assists over his last five outings. He also has a total of one block in that stretch.

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Records double-double Wednesday

    Vucevic totaled 16 points (6-13 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 12 rebounds, three assists and two steals in 37 minutes during Wednesday's 116-102 loss to Oklahoma City.

    Vucevic has been a consistent threat to post double-doubles this season, but Wednesday's double-double was just his second over his last five appearances. However, the 33-year-old has been a consistent force for the Bulls this year and is averaging 16.9 points, 10.4 rebounds and 2.9 assists in 34.4 minutes per game.

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Near double-double

    Vucevic posted 15 points (7-14 FG, 1-5 3Pt), eight rebounds, one block and one steal across 33 minutes during Saturday's 102-97 victory over the Heat.

    Vucevic is the epitome of consistency. He averaged exactly 17.6 points, 11.0 rebounds and 3.2 assists in back-to-back seasons entering 2023-24 and is on pace for similar numbers this year. However, Vucevic's shooting numbers have dropped this season, posting 47/26/79 shooting splits after 52/35/84 last year.

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Double-doubles again in loss

    Vucevic ended with 26 points (11-24 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 2-3 FT), 12 rebounds, five assists, one block and one steal in 36 minutes during Monday's 118-109 loss to the Bucks.

    Vucevic matched his season high with 26 points, adding double-digit boards for the sixth time this season. He has now scored at least 20 points in three straight games, continuing to be one of the more consistent producers from the center position. While he may not maintain his recent production, Vucevic should be a lock to finish inside the top 50 once again this season, barring any unforeseen injuries.

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Notches double-double in win

    Vucevic recorded 21 points (8-17 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 12 rebounds, four assists and two blocks over 33 minutes in Sunday's 119-108 win over the Pistons.

    It's the second straight game that Vucevic has scored 20-plus points in a game, and he's shot 52.8 percent from the floor in that stretch. It was his first double-double since Nov. 3 and his fifth one of the year. He'll look to replicate his production Monday on a back-to-back against the Bucks.

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Eclipses 20-point mark

    Vucevic had 26 points (11-18 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-3 FT), six rebounds, three assists, one block and one steal across 41 minutes during Wednesday's 116-115 overtime loss to the Suns.

    Vucevic was impressive Wednesday despite the loss and led the Bulls in scoring, something he has now accomplished in two of Chicago's last three games. DeMar DeRozan and Zach LaVine will continue to lead the Bulls offensive, but Vucevic should experience an uptick in his fantasy value if he can replicate these numbers with a bit more consistency. He has scored at least 19 points in four of his last six outings.

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Leads team in scoring Saturday

    Vucevic chipped in 19 points (8-17 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds and three assists over 30 minutes during Saturday's 123-101 loss to Denver.

    Vucevic posted a team highs with 19 points and 17 shot attempts. Simultaneously, he posted a ghastly minus-27 net rating during his time on the court. The 33-year-old's 20.5 percent usage rate ranks in the 65th percentile among big men, which is the main appeal to his fantasy portfolio.

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Double-doubles in loss

    Vucevic closed Friday's 109-107 loss to Brooklyn with 13 points (6-13 FG, 1-1 3Pt), 13 rebounds and three assists across 36 minutes.

    Vucevic recorded his third straight double-double Friday and his fourth of the season. Through six games, the veteran big man is averaging a career-high 12.5 rebounds, but his 0.5 blocks per game would be the lowest of his career.

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Posts 21-20 in loss

    Vucevic amassed 21 points (10-17 FG, 1-3 3Pt), 20 rebounds, one assist and two steals in 36 minutes during Wednesday's 114-105 loss to the Mavericks.

    It was the first time Vucevic has recorded 20-plus points and 20-plus rebounds in a game since March 17, 2019, when he played with the Magic. He's bounced back from his slow start to the 2023-24 campaign and has averaged 22.5 points and 18.5 rebounds over the past two contests while shooting 55.6 percent from the floor.

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Bounces back with huge performance

    Vucevic had 24 points (10-19 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 4-6 FT), 17 rebounds, three assists and one steal across 34 minutes during Monday's 112-105 win over the Pacers.

    Vucevic endured a tough start to the season and was due for a bounce-back performance. It was the first time this season the talented big man posted similar numbers to the ones he had during his Magic days. Vucevic might be entrenched as the Bulls' third-best scoring option behind Zach LaVine and DeMar DeRozan, but there's no question the team is better when he becomes a difference-maker, particularly on the offensive end of the court. This was Vucevic's second double-double of the season, but he did it by posting season-high numbers in several categories.

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Records first double-double in win

    Vucevic registered 11 points (4-15 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 2-3 FT), 12 rebounds, one assist and one block across 40 minutes during Friday's 104-103 overtime victory over the Raptors.

    Vucevic has been a walking double-double for most of his 13-year career and has averaged at least 10 points and 10 rebounds in all but two of his full seasons. He struggled from the field Friday, though he wasn't the only one as the Bulls shot just 37.4 percent from the floor and went 8-for-39 from three. He'll have to work for his rebounds Saturday against the Pistons, who fielded a double-big lineup of Isaiah Stewart and Jalen Duren in their Friday win over the Hornets.

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Limited impact Saturday

    Vucevic recorded 12 points (5-11 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds and one assist in 32 minutes during Saturday's 118-102 loss to the Pistons.

    Vucevic is firmly entrenched as the Bulls' third-best scoring option behind Zach LaVine and DeMar DeRozan. Still, it's fair to say his contributions have fallen short of expectations in the first three games of the season. He's yet to score more than 12 points in a game and is shooting a meager 41.2 percent from the field, a low figure for a big man. Vucevic needs to be better to remain relevant in fantasy, but the Bulls need him to play better as well amid a slow start to the campaign.

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Double-double in preseason finale

    Vucevic scored a game-high 21 points (9-15 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT) while adding 10 rebounds, four assists, two blocks and a steal in 33 minutes during Thursday's 114-105 preseason loss to the Timberwolves.

    The veteran big man appears more than ready for the regular season, as he was also the only player on either team to reach double-digit boards. Vucevic has posted back-to-back 20 and 10 performances to close out the exhibition schedule, and the 32-year-old heads into 2023-24 looking to average at least 17 points and 10 rebounds for the sixth straight campaign.

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Posts double-double Tuesday

    Vucevic tallied 20 points (8-13 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 10 rebounds and one assist in 28 minutes during Tuesday's 106-102 preseason loss to the Raptors.

    Vucevic rested during Sunday's preseason game but took on a key role in his return to action Tuesday. Although the Bulls were unable to pick up the win, Vucevic was one of two players on the team to score 20-plus points while also finishing second in rebounds. The 32-year-old has averaged a double-double in five consecutive seasons and should maintain a prominent role during the 2023-24 campaign.

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Set to play against Toronto

    Vucevic (rest) is in the starting five for Tuesday's preseason game against the Raptors.

    Vucevic will return to the lineup Tuesday after sitting out Sunday's preseason game. He will replace Andre Drummond in the starting lineup.

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Won't play Sunday

    Vucevic will not suit up for Sunday's preseason matchup against Denver, Harrison Wind of DNVR Sports reports.

    Vucevic will get the night off as the team continues to work towards regular-season form. Vucevic has had a mediocre preseason to this point, averaging just seven points across two contests. It would not be surprising if he's back in action for the team's next exhibition game Tuesday as he tries to pick up some momentum before regular-season action.

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Scores in double figures

    Vucevic tallied 10 points (4-8 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, two assists and two steals in 22 minutes during Thursday's 133-124 preseason double-overtime win over Denver.

    Vucevic saw increased minutes during Thursday's matchup and managed to improve upon his four-point performance from the Bulls' season opener against Milwaukee. The 32-year-old has appeared in at least 70 games in three consecutive seasons and has averaged double-doubles in five consecutive years. While appearing in all 82 games with the Bulls last year, he averaged 17.6 points, 11.0 rebounds and 3.2 assists in 33.5 minutes per matchup.
