Bulls' Thaddeus Young: Scores 20 in season finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young registered 20 points (8-15 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 4-6 FT), seven rebounds, three assists and three blocks across 26 minutes in Sunday's win over the Bucks.

Young ended the regular season on a strong note, starting in six of Chicago's last nine games and scoring in double digits in each one of those contests. The veteran power forward moved between the bench and the starting lineup all season long, and he ended the campaign averaging 12.1 points, 6.2 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 1.1 steals across 24.3 minutes per game in 68 appearances (23 starts).

Bulls' Thaddeus Young: Double-double in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young registered 19 points (9-18 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-3 FT), 13 rebounds, four assists and one steal in 30 minutes during Saturday's 105-91 loss to the Nets.

The 32-year-old received his second straight start with Daniel Theis (hip) sidelined to post his seventh double-double of the season. Young has been a consistent fantasy contributor over the month of May, averaging 11.7 points, 6.8 rebounds, 4.8 assists and 1.0 steals over his last eight games. The 14-year forward will look to keep up his productive play Sunday at home against the Bucks.

Bulls' Thaddeus Young: Starting Thursday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young will start Thursday's game against the Raptors, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.

With Daniel Theis (hip) sidelined, Young will make his 21st start of the season. He's struggled a bit in the last five games, averaging 8.8 points on 36.2 percent shooting, 5.0 rebounds, 3.6 assists and 1.0 steals per game.

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

Young will come off the bench Tuesday against the Nets.

With Daniel Theis (hip) back in the starting five after a one-game absence, Young will head back to the bench. Across Young's past 10 games as a reserve, he's averaged 10.0 points, 5.0 rebounds, 4.4 assists and 1.1 steals in 20.2 minutes.

Bulls' Thaddeus Young: Will start for Theis
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young will start Sunday's game against the Pistons, Bulls radio voice Chuck Swirsky reports.

With Daniel Theis (hip) sidelined, Young will move into the lineup at power forward alongside Nikola Vucevic. Young made a pair of starts to begin the month of May while Vucevic was on the shelf, and he fared well, averaging 16.5 points, 5.5 rebounds, 6.0 assists and 1.5 steals across the two games.

Bulls' Thaddeus Young: Collects eight assists off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young totaled seven points (3-8 FG, 1-3 FT), eight assists, six rebounds, two steals and one block.

With Nikola Vucevic returning to the lineup after a two-game absence, Young returned to the bench but had a solid all-around performance. The playmaking forward has recorded four-plus assists in six of his last seven games and has averaged 10.6 points, 6.0 assists, 5.6 rebounds and 1.1 steals over that stretch.

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

Young will shift back to the bench Thursday against Charlotte, Bulls radio voice Chuck Swirsky reports.

With Nikola Vucevic and Zach LaVine back, the Bulls will revert to their default lineup, featuring Daniel Theis at power forward and rookie Patrick Williams at the other forward spot. In his two-game run with the first unit, Young averaged 16.5 points, 5.5 rebounds, 6.0 assists and 1.5 steals in 30.5 minutes.

Bulls' Thaddeus Young: Scores 13 points as starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young had 13 points (6-13 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four rebounds, three assists and a steal across 28 minutes in Monday's loss against the 76ers.

Young has started two games in a row in the absence of Nikola Vuceivc (hip) and has looked productive, but he had also delivered some strong performances when coming off the bench. The veteran power forward has scored in double digits in seven of his last nine appearances overall.

May 2, 2021 11:36 AM
Bulls' Thaddeus Young: Big all-around game in start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young had 20 points (10-12 FG), nine assists, seven rebounds and two steals in Saturday's loss to Atlanta.

Starting in place of Nikola Vucevic (hip), Young took advantage of the increased role (33 minutes) to post one of his best all-around lines of the season. He reached 20 points for the first time since April 12, and his nine assists were his most in any game since March 27. If Vucevic misses any more time, Young would likely remain in the lineup.

May 1, 2021 07:44 PM
Bulls' Thaddeus Young: Starting for injured Vucevic
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young will start Saturday's contest against the Hawks, Rob Schaefer of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

With Nikola Vucevic (adductor) a late scratch, Young will move into the starting five. In 17 starts this season, he's averaged 12.4 points, 6.8 rebounds and 3.9 assists in 24.1 minutes.

Bulls' Thaddeus Young: Well-rounded line off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young put up 10 points (5-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt), six assists, four rebounds, and two steals in Wednesday's loss to the Knicks.

Coming off a near triple-double against the Heat on Monday, Young delivered another strong all-around effort in 29 minutes of action -- his most in any game since April 2. Entering Wednesday, Young had averaged 11.9 points, 5.1 rebounds, 4.1 assists and 0.9 steals over his prior seven games.

Bulls' Thaddeus Young: Sniffs triple-double off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young accumulated 10 points (5-6 FG, 0-1 FT), nine rebounds and eight assists in 26 minutes during Monday's 110-102 win over the Heat.

The 32-year-old bounced back from Saturday's six-point effort to post his fourth double-digit point effort over his last five games. Young was averaging 15.0 points, 4.7 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.7 blocks while shooting 63.3 percent from the field in his previous three games before Saturday's performance, so Monday's bounce-back game was an encouraging sight for fantasy managers. The 14-year veteran's minutes have been up and down lately, but he should continue receiving anywhere between 18-25 minutes a game the rest of the way for the 12th-seeded Bulls.

Bulls' Thaddeus Young: Finishes with six points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young had six points (3-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt), four assists, two rebounds and a steal across 22 minutes in Sunday's loss against the Heat.

Young came off the bench once again and while he shot 50 percent from the floor, he also ended a streak of three straight games with double-digit scoring figures. The veteran power forward remains a steady presence off the bench for the Bulls and is averaging 12.2 points per game while shooting 55.2 percent from the field over his last six appearances off the bench.

April 23, 2021 03:40 PM
Bulls' Thaddeus Young: Shoots 80 percent from floor
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young produced 18 points (8-10 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds, three assists and two steals across 20 minutes in Thursday's 108-91 win over the Hornets.

Young once again made a big splash with limited court time. The arrivals of Nikola Vucevic and Daniel Theis create a crowded field for the veteran to navigate, but coach Billy Donovan has faith in the journeyman forward, and as the team makes a push for playoff contention he'll see 20-to-25 minutes on a regular basis.

Bulls' Thaddeus Young: Big contribution, limited minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young ended with 14 points (5-8 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT), eight rebounds, three assists, two blocks and one steal in 17 minutes during Wednesday's 121-105 loss to the Cavaliers.

Despite being arguably the Bulls' best player, Young was still limited to just 17 minutes. His role has reduced since the arrival of Daniel Theis, yet he continues to be a standard-league worthy player. This game was not as close as the scoreline might suggest, so perhaps that was a contributing factor. After all, we did see nine minutes of Cristiano Felicio, something we should not be seeing at all. Those invested in Young could certainly be looking elsewhere given his recent playing time; however, he shouldn't just be dropped for the sake of it.

Bulls' Thaddeus Young: Puts up 17 points off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young registered 17 points (8-15 FG, 1-1 3Pt), six rebounds and four assists across 22 minutes off the bench in Friday's loss against Memphis.

Young returned to the bench after starting 10 games in a row, and the move paid off for the veteran. After posting three single-digit scoring games over his previous four appearances, Young bounced back and reached the 15-point mark for just the third time in the current month. Fantasy managers need to keep an eye on his role moving forward. The ability to produce is still there, but it remains to be seen whether the move to the second unit was a one-time thing or if it'll be permanent.

Bulls' Thaddeus Young: Sees just 14 minutes in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young posted two points (1-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt), two rebounds and two assists in 14 minutes during Wednesday's 115-106 loss to the Magic.

Young's workload has dipped significantly over the past three games. The veteran has seen just 18.0 minutes per game during this stretch after seeing 25.1 minutes per game in the prior 15 contests. Keep an eye on Young's role moving forward. He probably won't be fantasy-relevant if he can't see minutes in the mid-20s.

April 13, 2021 02:16 AM
Bulls' Thaddeus Young: Scores 20 points against Memphis
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young delivered 20 points (10-15 FG, 0-2 3Pt), a rebound and an assist across 20 minutes in Monday's loss against the Grizzlies.

Young was one of two Chicago players that reached the 20-point mark, but unlike Zach LaVine, he was extremely efficient from the field and made 10 of his 13 two-point attempts. Young has moved into the starting lineup in mid-March and his numbers have seen a boost as a result -- he has scored in double digits in all but four of his starts and has posted three double-doubles in that 16-game span.

April 12, 2021 11:40 AM
Bulls' Thaddeus Young: Another well-rounded line
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young posted nine points (4-7 FG, 1-2 FT), eight rebounds, three assists, two blocks and a steal in Sunday's loss to the Timberwolves.

While Young has now scored in single digits in two straight games, he salvaged a solid fantasy line with his work on the glass and on the defensive end. Over his last six games, Young is averaging 12.5 points, 6.8 rebounds, 4.2 assists and 0.8 blocks in 25.2 minutes.

Bulls' Thaddeus Young: Posts solid stat line
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young tallied 11 points (4-11 FG, 3-3FT), nine rebounds and six assists across 24 minutes in Thursday's win over Toronto.

The veteran forward continues to make a valuable yet understated impact in the startling lineup for Chicago, posting per-game averages of 15.2 points, 7.0 rebounds and 4.2 assists over his past six games. Young also contributes enough defensively (1.2 steals on the season) to be a multi-faceted asset in fantasy leagues. Though his 62.3 percent conversion rate from the charity stripe isn't ideal, Young is hitting a career-best 58.3 percent of his shots from the field on the season.
