Top Nikola Vucevic News

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Big line in loss

    Vucevic closed Wednesday's 116-100 loss to the Bucks with 19 points (8-15 FG, 3-9 3Pt), 16 rebounds, six assists and two blocks across 37 minutes.

    Logging four double-doubles in the series, Vucevic was Chicago's most consistent contributor. That being said, his shot selection was poor at times and he was cold from beyond the arc. For the season Vucevic shot just 31.4 percent from deep -- his lowest three-point percentage since 2017. While he graded as a positive defender, his overall fit with Chicago was questionable at times. His future with the Bulls isn't fully clear.

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Solid outing in loss

    Vucevic racked up 19 points (8-17 FG, 3-9 3Pt), six rebounds, three assists and one block over 30 minutes during Friday's 111-81 loss to the Bucks.

    Vucevic has been one of the best players for Chicago in the series, as he has scored at least 19 points in each game while also recording two double-doubles. His contributions will be even more valuable considering how much Zach LaVine has been struggling on offense.

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Posts double-double in Game 2 win

    Vucevic finished Wednesday's 114-110 victory over the Bucks with 24 points (10-18 FG, 4-8 3Pt), 13 rebounds, two assists and one steal across 36 minutes.

    Vucevic made a major impact on the game as both a scorer and rebounder, finishing with his second straight double-double in the first-round series. The big man also led the Bulls with four three-pointers and shot an efficient 10-for-18 from the field overall. He has been a problem for Milwaukee thus far, averaging 24 points and 15 boards in the first two contests of the series.

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Puts up 24 points on 27 shots

    Vucevic closed with 24 points (9-27 FG, 2-10 3Pt, 4-5 FT), 17 rebounds, three assists, two blocks and one steal in 39 minutes during Sunday's 93-86 loss to the Bucks.

    While Vucevic was a major contributor to the Bulls' 31-of-96 (32.3% FG) terrible shooting effort as a team, he rewarded fantasy managers with monster counting stats, including three steals/blocks in 39 minutes of action. Vucevic misfired on a number of wide-open looks from beyond the arc, so he certainly could have been poised for an even bigger night had the Bulls been able to get some shots to fall. Milwaukee "led" the NBA in opponents' three-point attempts per game during the regular season, so those looks will likely continue to be there throughout the series.

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Resting for finale

    Vucevic will rest for Sunday's regular-season finale against the Timberwolves.

    Chicago is locked into the No. 6 seed, so there's no need for Vucevic to risk injury. Notably, DeMar DeRozan (rest) and Zach LaVine (knee) are also out. Tristan Thompson and Tony Bradley should see extra minutes.

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Falls well short of double-double

    Vucevic produced 13 points (5-13 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, one assist and one steal over 25 minutes during Wednesday's 117-94 loss to the Celtics.

    The imposing trio of Jayson Tatum, Al Horford and Daniel Theis dominated all aspects of the interior Wednesday, which kept Vucevic in check for most of the game. This isn't good news for Vucevic, as the Bulls' potential first-round opponent (Milwaukee) also likes to play large with multiple big men starting aginst the right opponent.

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Double-double in loss

    Vucevic contributed 12 points (6-11 FG, 0-3 3Pt), 10 rebounds, five assists and one block in 32 minutes during Saturday's 127-109 loss to the Heat.

    The totals were modest, but Vucevic still produced his third double-double in the last four games and 44th of the season, putting him fifth in the league in that category. Since the beginning of March, the veteran center is averaging 18.7 points, 9.9 boards, 2.3 assists, 1.5 threes and 1.0 steals over his last 15 games.

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Posts double-double Thursday

    Vucevic provided 22 points (9-19 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 14 rebounds and one assist in 40 minutes during Thursday's 135-130 overtime win over the Clippers.

    Vucevic led Chicago in rebounds in the victory and finished second on the team in scoring. The double-double was his seventh in March and second in his past three games. In addition to his steady contributions as a scorer and rebounder, Vucevic has been effective from beyond the arc of late, making multiple three-pointers in five of his past seven contests.

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Just misses double-double Thursday

    Vucevic supplied 16 points (7-11 FG, 2-3 3Pt), nine rebounds, three assists, two blocks and two steals over 32 minutes during Thursday's 126-109 loss to New Orleans.

    It was another solid performance from the veteran center. Since missing a game March 7 due to a minor hamstring strain, Vucevic is averaging 18.4 points, 9.6 boards, 1.6 assists, 1.6 threes and 1.1 steals over the last eight contests.

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Efficient performance in loss

    Vucevic chipped in 22 points (9-15 FG, 4-5 3Pt), seven rebounds and two assists in 32 minutes during Tuesday's 126-98 loss to the Bucks.

    Vucevic started off hot, connecting on three triples in the first quarter en route to 11 early points. The talented big man finished with four made three-pointers, marking just the sixth time he's made at least four this season. Over his last seven appearances, Vucevic has averaged 18.7 points, 9.7 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.0 steals in 30.9 minutes per game.

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Third straight double-double

    Vucevic logged 10 points (5-14 FG, 0-6 3Pt), 11 rebounds, one assist and one steal across 29 minutes during Wednesday's 125-110 loss to Utah.

    Vucevic had a rough night from the field, but at least he managed to record double-digit points and rebounds for the third game in a row. He continues to play at an underwhelming level compared to his Orlando days, but he still holds decent fantasy value as a two-way threat in a position with very few top-notch alternatives.
