Portis scored 18 points (8-14 FG, 0-2 3PT, 2-4 FT) to go with three rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 22 minutes during Wednesday's 122-98 loss to Toronto.
Portis has been a consistent scorer as of late, scoring in double figures in six straight games. During this span, the forward is averaging 14.8 points while, aside from his only start of the season, playing as a reserve. As of late, Portis has also shot the ball rather well, sinking 52.0 percent of his 12.5 shots in his last four games. He will look to carry this momentum through the all-star break into Chicago's match-up with Philadelphia on February 22.
Portis scored 19 points (8-17 FG, 3-6 3Pt) while adding seven rebounds and three assists in 26 minutes during Monday's 105-101 win over the Magic.
The 23-year-old has been the biggest beneficiary of the Nikola Mirotic deal on the Bulls roster, averaging 14.2 points, 8.4 boards, 2.2 assists, 1.4 three-pointers and 1.0 steals in 25.8 minutes through five games in February -- and that includes a contest he was ejected from due to a flagrant 2 foul. Expect Portis to continue seeing plenty of shots and court time as one of the key members of Chicago's second unit in the second half.
Portis was called for a flagrant-two foul and ejected from Saturday's game against the Wizards. He finished with 13 points (6-12 FG, 1-5 3Pt), four rebounds, one assist and one steal over 23 minutes.
Despite some sketchy shooting of late (25-for-75, 33.3 FG%), Portis has been productive for the Bulls, averaging 11.1 points and 8.3 rebounds over the last six games.
Portis generated 18 points (7-19 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-4 FT), 14 rebounds, four assists and two steals across 32 minutes in Monday's 104-98 loss to the Kings.
Portis thrived despite a ragged night from the field while drawing the start for Lauri Markkanen (personal), making up for his shooting struggles with a game-high amount of rebounds. The third-year big has a much clearer path to consistent fantasy success now that Nikola Mirotic is in New Orleans, but he'll have to snap out of the multi-game shooting slump he's currently mired in. Factoring in Monday's line, Portis has drained just 26.8 percent of his 56 attempts over the last four contests.
Portis will draw the start Monday against the Kings, K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.
With usual starter Lauri Makkanen still out following the birth of his child, Portis will jump into the starting lineup. Portis has averaged 26.5 minutes in the two games since Nikola Mirotic was traded to New Orleans, up from the 20.6 minutes he was averaging prior to the trade.
