Top Cristiano Felicio News

  • Cristiano Felicio: Inks deal with German team

    Felicio signed a one-year contract with German club Ratiopharm Ulm on Monday, Johnny Askounis of Eurohoops.net reports.

    Felicio spent each of the past six seasons with the Bulls, but his time in the NBA likely would have ended earlier if not for the four-year, $32 million contract that kept him on Chicago's books through 2020-21. The 29-year-old had effectively been excised from the rotation for both of the past two seasons, appearing in only 40 games between those years while averaging 11.8 minutes per contest. He'll likely spend the remainder of his career overseas.

  • Bulls' Cristiano Felicio: Out with illness

    Felicio will not play in Saturday's matchup with the Hawks due to an illness.

  • Bulls' Cristiano Felicio: Doesn't play Monday

    Felicio (coach's decision) didn't appear in Monday's loss to Memphis.

    Felicio has just one appearance over the Bulls' past eight games. Against the Spurs on March 27, Felicio managed one point in two minutes and that has been his only points scored since Feb. 8.

  • Bulls' Cristiano Felicio: Not part of rotation

    Felicio is averaging career-lows in minutes (5.7), points (1.6) and rebounds (1.7) this season.

    Felicio has only played in one game (two minutes) since the All-Star break and only seven games total this season. The fifth-year center averaged 10-plus minutes every season until this year. During his first four years with the Bulls, Felicio was able to carve out a role as the backup big to the Bulls' high-draft picks (Lauri Markkanen, Wendell Carter). However, the Brazilian big man likely will continue to drop in the depth chart with the additions of Nikola Vucevic and Daniel Theis at the trade deadline.

  • Bulls' Cristiano Felicio: Absent Monday

    Felicio didn't appear in Monday's overtime win over Indiana.

    The center hasn't been a factor at all this season, as Felicio has played in just six games. In those six appearances though, Felicio averaged 1.8 points and 2.0 rebounds in 6.3 minutes.

  • Bulls' Cristiano Felicio: Doubles-doubles off bench

    Felicio finished with 12 points (5-6 FG, 2-2 FT), 10 rebounds and one assist in 22 minutes off the bench Wednesday in the Bulls' 117-110 win over the Timberwolves.

    With both Wendell Carter (ankle) and Daniel Gafford (thumb) sidelined, Felicio has cracked the rotation in six consecutive games and seems to be gradually gaining the trust of coach Jim Boylen. Felicio has logged double-digit minutes in four straight contests and even started in the second half Wednesday, replacing Luke Kornet. It wouldn't be surprising if Felicio drew the start over Kornet on Friday against the Kings, though expect a fairly equitable timeshare to remain in place between the two in any case.

  • Bulls' Cristiano Felicio: Back in rotation

    Felicio has logged double-digit minutes in each of the Bulls' last three contests.

    Felicio was a DNP-CD in every game until Jan. 13, when he began to pick up a small number of minutes off the bench with injuries to both Wendell Carter Jr. and Daniel Gafford. With both big men on the shelf, coach Jim Boylen has had no choice but to go to Felicio, who's shared minutes up front with Luke Kornet, Thaddeus Young and Lauri Markkanen. Even so, Felicio hasn't garnered enough playing time (13.3 MPG over his last three) to warrant any fantasy consideration.

  • Bulls' Cristiano Felicio: Recalled by Bulls

    Felicio will rejoin the Bulls for Saturday's game against Boston.

    Though it's unlikely, there's a chance for Felicio to make his season debut against the Celtics. The 27-year-old's battled through injuries for much of the season, though when healthy, he's simply served as rotational depth.

  • Bulls' Cristiano Felicio: Sent to G League

    Felicio (illness) has been sent to the G League ahead of Friday's contest against the Wisconsin Herd.

    Felicio has yet to appear in an NBA game this season. It seems likely that he'll garner most of his minutes with the Windy City Bulls.

  • Bulls' Cristiano Felicio: Unavailable Thursday

    Felicio (illness) isn't active for Thursday's game against Utah, Chuck Swirsky of the Bulls Radio Network reports.

    Felicio was tagged as probable due to illness, but he's inactive for Thursday's clash. His next chance to take the court will come Saturday against Boston.

  • Bulls' Cristiano Felicio: Probable for Thursday

    The Bulls list Felicio as probable for Thursday's game against the Jazz due to an illness.

    Felicio looks like he'll be able to shake off the ailment ahead of the 8 p.m. ET tipoff, but expect him to remain outside of coach Jim Boylen's rotation. The center has yet to see action at the NBA level in 2019-20, with his lone playing time coming during three appearances for the G League's Windy City Bulls.

  • Bulls' Cristiano Felicio: Sent to G League

    The Bulls assigned Felicio (wrist) to the G League's Windy City Bulls on Tuesday.

    Felicio seems to have made a full recovery from the broken right wrist he sustained in mid-November, as he was cleared to join Windy City for practice over the weekend before rejoining the Bulls for a stretch of three games in four days. Since Felicio didn't get a chance to play in any of those contests, he'll head back to the G League to see his first game action post-injury. Expect Felicio to suit up for Windy City in Tuesday's matchup with the College Park Skyhawks.

  • Bulls' Cristiano Felicio: Off injury report

    Felicio (wrist) isn't listed on the Bulls' injury report for Monday's game against the Thunder.

    After returning from a conditioning stint in the G League prior to the weekend, Felicio didn't appear in the Bulls' games Friday or Saturday. His absence from the injury report suggests he'll be available to play Monday, though Felicio wasn't in coach Jim Boylen's rotation even before fracturing his wrist in November. Felicio has yet to see the floor this season, and at this point, the Bulls are just running out the clock on the four-year, $32 million extension he signed in July 2017.

  • Bulls' Cristiano Felicio: Recalled from G League

    Felicio (wrist) was recalled from the G League on Friday.

    Felicio was sent down earlier in the day, so it was likely just to participate in practice. He should be considered questionable ahead of Saturday's game against the Clippers.

  • Bulls' Cristiano Felicio: Assigned to Windy City

    Felicio (wrist) was assigned to the Windy City Bulls of the G League on Friday.

    Felicio has been dealing with a fractured wrist since mid-November. He's yet to get into a game this season.

  • Bulls' Cristiano Felicio: Unlikely to return Friday

    Felicio (wrist) is doubtful for Friday's game against the Hornets.

    Felicio has yet to play this season due to a fractured right wrist, and it sounds like his debut will have to wait at least one more game as he continues to work back to 100 percent. Even when healthy, Felicio likely won't crack coach Jim Boylen's rotation.
