Bulls' Denzel Valentine: Scores 10 against Clippers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valentine finished with 10 points (4-6 FG, 2-3 3Pt), four boards and three assists in 20 minutes of a 130-127 loss to the Clippers on Sunday.

Valentine had his fourth double-digit scoring day of the season in a well-rounded effort. He doesn't seem close to breaking into the starting lineup, but the Michigan State product has carved out a solid second unit role. He'll face Boston on Tuesday.

Bulls' Denzel Valentine: Scores 14 points off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valentine recorded 14 points (5-8 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds and two steals across 21 minutes off the bench in Friday's loss against the Bucks.

Six Chicago players logged more minutes than Valentine, but the former Michigan State standout ended as the team's second-highest scorer -- it was the first second he surpassed the 10-point mark this season. Valentine has only played three games in 2020-21 and has hold a minor role in the rotation thus far, but he has been surprisingly productive given the opportunities he has received.

Bulls' Denzel Valentine: Practices fully
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bulls head coach Billy Donovan said Valentine (hamstring) was a full participant in Sunday's practice.

Valentine missed the Bulls' entire preseason slate with the injury, but his return to full-contact, full-court work Sunday seemingly puts him on track to be an option off the bench in Wednesday's season opener versus the Hawks. Expect the 27-year-old to hold a minor role in the Bulls' wing rotation after averaging 6.8 points, 2.1 rebounds, 1.3 triples and 1.2 assists in 13.6 minutes per game over his 36 appearances in 2019-20.

Bulls' Denzel Valentine: Present for practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valentine (hamstring) participated in Sunday's practice, Rob Schaefer of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

The extent of Valentine's involvement in the session isn't known, but his presence on the practice court is an encouraging sign after he initially tweaked his hamstring about two weeks ago. Valentine ended up missing the entire preseason due to the injury, so he may need multiple practices to get back up to full speed. Consider him day-to-day ahead of Wednesday's season opener versus the Hawks.

Bulls' Denzel Valentine: To miss rest of preseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valentine (hamstring) won't travel with the team for Wednesday and Friday's preseason games against the Thunder, K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

Valentine will miss the entire preseason for Chicago due to the hamstring strain. The 27-year-old guard's next chance to return will be Dec. 23 against Atlanta.

Bulls' Denzel Valentine: Dealing with tweaked hamstring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valentine hasn't practiced yet due to a hamstring tweak and he won't play in the Bulls' first two preseason games, K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

Valentine has struggled to stay healthy during his three years in the league, so this isn't a good start to the season. He hopes to practice Saturday, and we'll see if that happens. Regardless, he's unlikely to have a fantasy-relevant role this season.

Bulls' Denzel Valentine: Staying in Chicago
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valentine and the Bulls have come to terms on a one-year, $4.7 million deal, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

Valentine was drafted by the Bulls in 2016 and has spent three of the last four years with the team. He averaged 6.8 points, 2.1 rebounds, 0.7 steals and 1.3 triples across 13.6 minutes in 36 games last season. He projects to play a similar role this upcoming season, as he will primarily provide depth on the wing.

Bulls' Denzel Valentine: Scores 11 in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valentine had 11 points (5-11 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 0-1 FT), two rebounds and a steal in 18 minutes during Wednesday's 115-108 loss to Minnesota.

Again filling in for Zach LaVine (quad), Valentine reached double-digit scoring and has now done so in back-to-back games for the first time since mid-December. Potentially usable in deeper leagues, receiving only 18 minutes on a shorthanded roster may be symbolic of Chicago having little interest in expanding his ceiling going forward.

Bulls' Denzel Valentine: Scores season-high 17 in 21 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valentine delivered 17 points (7-15 FG, 3-10 3Pt), four rebounds, two assists and one block in 21 minutes during Monday's 109-107 win over the Mavericks.

Valentine drew the start in place of Zach LaVine (quadriceps) and produced a solid showing, including a season-high scoring total. It's unclear whether LaVine will be ready to return for Wednesday's matchup versus the lowly Timberwolves, but if not, Valentine could make for an intriguing cheap option in daily formats.

Bulls' Denzel Valentine: Starting for injured LaVine
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valentine will get the start Monday against the Mavericks, Mike McGraw of the Daily Herald reports.

With Zach LaVine nursing a quad injury, Valentine will move into the lineup for his first start of the season. The former Michigan State standout recently missed seven games due to injury, but he returned to action Saturday in New York, playing 10 minutes off the bench and posting eight points with three rebounds.

Bulls' Denzel Valentine: Logs 10 minutes in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valentine (hamstring) put up eight points (3-8 FG, 2-5 3Pt) and three rebounds in 10 minutes off the bench Saturday in the Bulls' 125-115 loss to the Knicks.

Valentine was back in action for the Bulls after missing the previous seven games with a hamstring injury. Chicago may have been mindful to limit his playing time in his first game back from injury, but Valentine isn't projected to see his role grow much further from here, as he hasn't been a consistent member of the rotation when healthy this season. Once the likes of Otto Porter (foot) and Lauri Markkanen (pelvis) likely return to action at some point in March, Valentine will be a prime candidate to lose out on minutes.

Bulls' Denzel Valentine: Cleared to play vs. Knicks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valentine (hamstring) is available for Saturday's game against the Knicks.

Hamstring soreness has been bothering Valentine lately, but he'll be able to make a return Saturday following a seven-game absence. Across his past six appearances, he's averaged 5.8 points, 2.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.0 steal in 15.5 minutes.

Bulls' Denzel Valentine: Questionable Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valentine is questionable for Saturday's game against the Knicks, according to K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago.

Coach Jim Boylen was hopeful the 26-year-old would return at New York, but limited progress on his availability leaves him questionable for Saturday. Valentine has missed most of February due to tightness in his left hamstring.

February 27, 2020 03:00 PM
Bulls' Denzel Valentine: Hopeful for Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Jim Boylen said he's "hopeful" Valentine (hamstring) can play Saturday against the Knicks, Mike McGraw of the Chicago Daily Herald reports.

Valentine has missed the past seven games due to a hamstring injury, but he's trending in the right direction after returning to practice Thursday. Look for his status to clear up closer to tipoff Saturday.

Bulls' Denzel Valentine: Out again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valentine (hamstring) will not play in Tuesday's game against the Thunder, KC Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

Valentine is still nursing a hamstring injury from before the All-Star break, and this will mark his seventh straight absence. The Bulls will again have only nine active players Tuesday night.

February 25, 2020 07:52 AM
Bulls' Denzel Valentine: Expected to sit Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valentine (hamstring) is listed as doubtful for Tuesday's game against Oklahoma City.

Assuming Valentine does ultimately sit, it will be the seventh straight absence for the Michigan State product. When healthy, he's played a consistent role off the bench, but Valentine hasn't been truly fantasy-relevant at any point this season.

February 23, 2020 05:24 PM
Bulls' Denzel Valentine: Out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valentine (hamstring) will not suit up for Sunday's game against the Wizards, Cody Westerlund of 670TheScore.com reports.

Bulls' Denzel Valentine: Won't play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valentine (hamstring) is out for Saturday's game against the Suns.

Valentine was able to go through some 3-on-3 work in Friday's practice that included contact, but he's not quite ready to make a return to a real game. His next chance to take the court arrives Sunday against the Wizards.

Bulls' Denzel Valentine: Plays 3-on-3, takes contact
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valentine (hamstring) took contact during Friday's practice in a 3-on-3 context, and his status for Saturday's game against the Suns will be determined that day, K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

A hamstring injury has kept Valentine on the shelf over the past four games. If he is able to make a return Saturday, it's possible he'll be on a minutes limit.

February 19, 2020 03:08 PM
Bulls' Denzel Valentine: Out Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valentine (hamstring) will not play Thursday against the Hornets, Mike McGraw of the Daily Herald reports.

Valentine was nursing a hamstring before the break, and he's apparently still bothered by the issue. He'll sit out Thursday, with his next chance to play arriving Saturday versus Phoenix.
