Bulls' Thaddeus Young: Plays 21 minutes off bench in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Bulls' Thaddeus Young: Versatile production off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young contributed 13 points (6-11 FG, 1-4 3Pt), six rebounds, four assists, three steals and two blocks in 29 minutes during the Bulls' 115-108 loss to the T-Wolves on Wednesday.

He has now recorded a steal in 13 straight games. 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: Returning to bench role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young isn't in the starting lineup Wednesday at Minnesota, K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

The 31-year-old started the last 15 games but will return to the bench with Lauri Markkanen (pelvis) retaking the court Wednesday. Young averaged 13.9 points and 5.9 rebounds in 32.4 minutes during that stretch, but he could still see decent run while Markkanen remains on a minutes restriction.

Bulls' Thaddeus Young: Season-high five steals Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young accumulated 15 points (6-12 FG, 3-7 3Pt), five steals, three rebounds and two assists in 32 minutes during Saturday's 125-115 loss to the Knicks.

Young secured a season-high five steals during Saturday's game, though it didn't result in a victory for the Bulls. He finished the month of February with averages of 14.8 points, 6.2 rebounds, 2.7 steals and 1.6 assists in 32.2 minutes.

February 24, 2020 04:24 PM
Bulls' Thaddeus Young: Scores season-high 23 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young notched 23 points (8-14 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 2-3 FT), six rebounds, three steals and two assists in 30 minutes during Sunday's 126-117 win over the Wizards.

Young has topped the 20-point mark thrice this season, and all three games have come during February. The veteran power forward is averaging 15.7 points in 32.6 minutes this month.

Bulls' Thaddeus Young: Fills stat sheet in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young accounted for 13 points (5-11 FG, 3-5 3Pt), five rebounds, four steals, two assists and two blocks in 31 minutes during Saturday's 112-104 loss against the Suns.

Young moved into Chicago's starting lineup 11 games ago and the results have been encouraging thus far. He has scored in double digits in each of those contests, while notching two double-doubles over that span. The veteran power forward has the ability to contribute steadily in several areas of the game and his numbers back that up. The former Pacer is averaging 13.7 points, 6.2 rebounds, 1.9 steals and 1.6 assists in 32.5 minutes per game in those 11 aforementioned contests.

Bulls' Thaddeus Young: Impressive outing versus Hornets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young added 11 points (5-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt), six rebounds, three steals and an assist in 31 minutes during the 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 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.

Bulls' Thaddeus Young: Scores 11 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young had 11 points (5-9 FG, 0-2 3PT, 1-2 FT), three rebounds, three steals, two assists and one block in 35 minutes during Saturday's 118-106 win at Cleveland.

Young has started back-to-back games due to Lauri Markkanen's hip injury and should remain in the starting lineup moving forward. He has scored in double digits in his two starts thus far, and fantasy owners should expect an uptick in terms of his production as well as his playing time moving forward.

January 24, 2020 06:28 PM
Bulls' Thaddeus Young: Starting at power forward
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young will start at power forward for Friday's game against the Kings, K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

With Lauri Markkanen (hip) out for at least a month, Young will presumably step in as the Bulls' starting power forward. When playing at least 24 minutes this season, he has averaged 11.5 points, 5.5 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.5 steals.

Bulls' Thaddeus Young: Drops 14 off the bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young had 14 points (5-11 FG, 4-8 3Pt), six boards, three assists, two blocks and two steals in 28 minutes of a 111-98 loss to the Bucks on Monday.

Young lead his team's second unit by knocking down half his shots from deep in the effort. Young has been strong from deep lately, making eight of 13 attempts from deep in his last four games. He'll face the Timberwolves on Wednesday.

January 16, 2020 10:32 AM
Bulls' Thaddeus Young: Perfect from deep
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young had 18 points (7-9 FG, 3-3 3PT, 1-3 FT), eight rebounds, two steals and one block in 21 minutes off the bench during Wednesday's 115-106 win over the Wizards.

Young was perfect from deep in this game, but that shouldn't be much of a trend going forward since he is hitting his long-range shots at a 33.6 percent clip during the current season. He has scored in double digits in five of his last seven games, though, and he seems to be on the rise. He will aim to extend that solid run of play Friday at Philadelphia.

Bulls' Thaddeus Young: Productive off the bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young collected 17 points (8-14 FG, 1-4 FT), two rebounds and one assist in 24 minutes in Monday's 113-101 loss to the Celtics.

After failing to score double-digit points in two straight games, Young bounced back Monday, with the second highest scoring output on the team. With center Wendell Carter Jr. (ankle) out for the foreseeable future, the Bulls may start to rely on Young more going forward, especially with starting power forward Lauri Markkanen struggling. The veteran should be picked up in deeper season-long leagues and is a cheap option worth considering in daily-fantasy formats this Friday versus a weak Wizards' defense.

Bulls' Thaddeus Young: Moving to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young will shift to the bench for Friday's game against the Pacers, Rob Schaefer of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

With Wendell Carter (ankle) set to miss the next four-to-six weeks, the Bulls have been forced to use secondary options at center. It was Young who got the start in Carter's absence Wednesday, but the Bulls will switch it up and go with Daniel Gafford on Friday. Coach Jim Boylen implied that the starting spot could be fluid in Carter's absence, so it wouldn't be a surprise if Young makes a few more starts between now and the All-Star break.

Bulls' Thaddeus Young: Scores 18 points as starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young had 18 points (7-16 FG, 3-7 3PT, 1-2 FT), six rebounds, three steals and two assists in 35 minutes during Wednesday's 123-108 loss at New Orleans.

Young started for the first time this season and delivered a strong performance, as he posted his season-high mark in points while tying his highest mark for steals. Young's value will remain tied to how long he can remain in the starting lineup, and that will depend exclusively on Wendell Carter Jr.'s recovery from an ankle injury. If he starts against the Pacers on Friday, he should remain a reliable fantasy asset.

Bulls' Thaddeus Young: Joins starting five
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young is starting Wednesday against the Pelicans, Chuck Swirsky of the Bulls Radio Network reports.

With Wendall Carter (ankle) unavailable, Young will join the starting lineup for the first time all season. The big man has seen north of 25 minutes in each of his past two appearances, tallying a combined 23 points, 11 rebounds, four assists, four steals and one block during those contests.

Bulls' Thaddeus Young: Deja vu performance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young had 11 points (5-10 FG, 1-1 3Pt), nine rebounds, three steals, an assist and a block during the Bulls' 118-110 loss to the Mavericks on Monday night.

Young played 27 minutes on Saturday as Lauri Markkanen left early with an ankle injury. Young played 28 minutes on Monday as Daniel Gafford and Wendell Carter Jr. both had ankle scares. Gafford returned shortly, but Carter took a wheelchair to the locker room --- X-rays came back negative --- and any missed time would open the door for Young and Gafford to fill the void.

Bulls' Thaddeus Young: Plays 27 minutes in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young had 12 points (5-11 FG, 1-6 3PT, 1-2 FT) and three assists in Saturday's loss to Boston.

Young played 27 minutes Saturday, more than his usual allotment, as the Bulls had to compensate for Lauri Markkanen leaving the game early with an injury. The veteran wasn't able to do much with the opportunity this time, but if Markkanen misses games going forward, Young could see bump in minutes.
