Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Churns out big double-double in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic posted 29 points (14-27 FG, 1-8 3Pt), 16 rebounds, two assists and one block across 36 minutes Sunday in the Bulls' 108-96 win over the Pistons.

The surging Bulls are 3-0 since both Vucevic and Zach LaVine returned to the lineup for two- and 11-game absences, respectively. Unsurprisingly, the two co-stars have done the heavy lifting for Chicago during the winning streak, with Vucevic turning in averages of 25.3 points (on 49.3 percent shooting from the field), 14.7 boards, 5.0 assists, 2.7 three-pointers, 1.3 steals and 1.0 blocks in 33.0 minutes over those three contests. Since the Bulls are still trailing the Pacers by 2.5 games for the final spot in the Eastern Conference play-in tournament, Vucevic should be a good bet to suit up and handle his typical minute loads in all four of Chicago's remaining regular-season games.

Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Turns in triple-double in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic produced 18 points (7-16 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT, 14 rebounds, 10 assists, two steals and a block across 32 minutes in Friday's 121-99 win over the Celtics.

Zach LaVine's return to the lineup helps everyone, but it's especially beneficial to Vucevic, who has had to carry a massive load during his absence. The Bulls are a transformed team with a bonafide big man at the five, and his solid contribution has actually given his team an outside shot at the play-in game.

Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Double-double in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic totaled 29 points (12-24 FG, 5-7 3Pt), 14 rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block in a 120-99 victory over the Hornets on Thursday.

Vucevic returned from a two-game absence due to a hip injury and picked up right where he left off, recording his sixth consecutive double-double. Zach LaVine also returned to the lineup for Chicago, but it was Vucevic that led the team offensively. The center has averaged 23.3 points, 14.7 rebounds and 4.0 assists across his last six games.

Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Officially available
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic (hip) is available for Thursday's game against the Hornets.

Vucevic had missed the last two games due to a hip injury, but he was listed as probable for Thursday's matchup. In his last five appearances, Vucevic had averaged 22.2 points, 14.8 rebounds and 4.2 assists in 35.2 minutes per game. Even though Vucevic will be monitored during his first game back, he won't have a minutes limit, Rob Schaefer of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Expected back Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic (hip) is listed as probable for Thursday's game against the Hornets.

A hip injury has kept Vucevic out of the last two games, but he's moving in the right direction and is on course to return to action Thursday night. The Bulls are also expected to get Zach LaVine (health and safety protocols) back, so it will likely be the first game the star duo have played together since April 14.

Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Won't go Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic (hip) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the 76ers, Marc Narducci of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Vucevic has been dealing with an adductor injury over the last few days, and the issue is significant enough to keep him out of Monday's matchup. Thaddeus Young, Daniel Theis and Lauri Markkanen should be ready to handle extra minutes in Vucevic's absence.

Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Questionable Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic (adductor) is questionable for Monday's game against Philadelphia.

Vucevic was a late scratch for Saturday's game against Atlanta, but he has a chance to return Monday. If he's unable to play, Daniel Theis, Lauri Markkanen, Patrick Williams and Thaddeus Young could see increased playing time.

Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Late scratch Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic (adductor) is a late scratch for Saturday's game against the Hawks, Brad Rowland of PeachtreeHoops.com reports.

With Vucevic surprisingly out of the lineup, the Bulls will need to find more frontcourt help. That could result in Daniel Theis, Lauri Markkanen, Patrick Williams or Thaddeus Young seeing more time.

Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Will play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic (adductor) is available for Saturday's game against the Hawks, K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

Vucevic will play in the second half of the Bulls' back-to-back after playing through the sore adductor in Friday's loss to the Bucks. With Lauri Markkanen (illness) returning after a one-game absence, there could be fewer minutes available for Thaddeus Young, Daniel Theis and Patrick Williams.

Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Questionable vs. Hawks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic (adductor) is questionable for Saturday's matchup against the Hawks.

Vucevic played through the sore adductor Friday against the Bucks, but he's still feeling pain. If he's forced to sit out, Thaddeus Young, Daniel Theis and Lauri Markkanen (illness) are all candidates to see more minutes.

Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Puts up double-double in defeat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic had 17 points (7-27 FG, 1-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 15 boards, four assists, one steal and one block in Friday's loss to Milwaukee.

The Bulls were unable to take advantage of Milwaukee playing without Giannis Antetokounmpo (ankle), as Vucevic struggled from the floor in 36 minutes of action. He still managed to post his fifth consecutive double-double, and he's now drained at least one three-pointer in every game since March 29.

April 30, 2021 08:36 PM
Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Good to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic (hip) has been cleared to play in Friday's matchup with the Bucks.

Vucevic was considered probable heading into the evening, so no surprise here. Barring any setbacks, look for him to take on his usual workload. The big man has averaged 22.6 points, 10.9 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.0 steals in 32.6 minutes in April.

April 29, 2021 05:36 PM
Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Probable vs. Bucks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic is probable for Friday's contest against the Bucks due to right adductor tightness.

Vucevic has emerged from Wednesday's loss to the Knicks with an adductor injury, but he should play Friday. This month, he's averaged 22.6 points, 10.9 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.0 steals in 32.6 minutes.

April 29, 2021 10:52 AM
Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Puts up 26 points, 18 boards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic posted 26 points (10-22 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 18 rebounds, three assists and two blocks in Wednesday's loss to the Knicks.

The Knicks took control of the game with a monster fourth quarter, but Vucevic did what he could to keep the game competitive. He was the only Bulls player to score more than 14 points en route to his fourth straight double-double. Vucevic's two rejections were his first since April 19 against Boston.

April 27, 2021 01:08 AM
Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Posts 40th double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic tallied 24 points (9-15 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 11 rebounds, two assists and one steal in 35 minutes during Monday's 110-102 win over the Heat.

The 30-year-old has been on a roll since scoring just nine points back on April 21, averaging 22.7 points, 13.7 rebounds, 4.7 assists and 2.3 three-pointers over his last three games. Vucevic has now recorded three straight double-doubles and should continue playing between 30-to-35 minutes the rest of the way for the 12th-seeded Bulls.

April 25, 2021 01:40 PM
Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Another double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic had 26 points (11-18 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-3 FT), 14 rebounds and six assists across 39 minutes in Saturday's loss against the Heat.

Vucevic has now posted back-to-back double-doubles since his abysmal performance Wednesday against the Cavaliers, and it seems that game was nothing more than an off night for the star big man. Vucevic is still averaging 22.2 points, 10.2 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 1.0 steals per game since joining the Bulls in late March.

April 23, 2021 05:12 PM
Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Bounces back with double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic posted 18 points (8-13 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-1 FT), 16 rebounds and six assists across 29 minutes in Thursday's 108-91 win over the Hornets.

Vucevic came back to life after an abysmal night against the Cavaliers on Wednesday night. His 16 rebounds matched his best total since joining the Bulls -- a welcomed sign after he failed to reach double digits in the category for three consecutive games.

April 22, 2021 01:12 AM
Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Awful against Cavaliers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic registered nine points (4-12 FG, 1-5 3Pt), five rebounds, two assists and a steal across 25 minutes in Wednesday's loss against the Cavaliers.

Vucevic had his worst game since joining the Bulls, as he failed to reach the 10-point mark for the first time this season while also logging his second-lowest mark in terms of minutes. Vucevic will try to bounce back Thursday at home against the Hornets.

April 20, 2021 12:28 AM
Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Sniffs double-double in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic tallied 29 points (13-23 FG, 3-6 3Pt) nine rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block in 31 minutes during Monday's win over the Celtics.

The 30-year-old has now scored 20-plus points in four straight games, a span in which he's averaging 26.8 points, 10.3 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 3.5 three-pointers and 1.3 steals. Vucevic has been on a roll lately, and he should continue providing elite production in points, rebounds, field-goal percentage along with solid assists and steals the rest of the way. The 10-year vet should continue garnering a ton of usage with Zach LaVine (COVID-19) out at least another week.

April 18, 2021 12:04 PM
Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Leads way with 25 and seven
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic had 25 points (10-17 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, five assists and two steals in Saturday's win over the Cavs.

Unsurprisingly, Vucevic led the way for the Zach LaVine-less Bulls, taking 17 shots and finishing as a plus-16 in his 33 minutes of action. Over the last three games, Vucevic is putting up 26.0 points, 10.7 boards, 4.0 assists and 1.0 steal in 33.3 minutes.
