Bulls' Luke Kornet: Set to miss extended time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kornet (ankle) is expected to remain out for the next 6-to-8 weeks.

The Bulls got more bad news on the injury front Thursday, as further tests revealed that Kornet's sprained left ankle is apparently more severe than initially expected. The six-to-eight-week timetable effectively ends Kornet's season as the Bulls head toward another likely slot in the lottery. Amid injuries to Wendell Carter, Lauri Markkanen and Daniel Gafford, Kornet had been starting in the frontcourt prior to the injury. In 14 consecutive starts from Jan. 17 through Feb. 20. Kornet posted 10.1 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.4 made threes in 22.4 minutes.

Bulls' Luke Kornet: Out again Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kornet (ankle) will not play Tuesday against the Thunder.

Kornet will miss at least one more game as he continues to deal with a sprained left ankle. The big man was spotted in a walking boot on Saturday, which isn't the most encouraging sign. However, the Bulls have three off days following Tuesday's game, so there's a chance Kornet could make some progress and get back on the floor as early as Saturday in New York.

Bulls' Luke Kornet: Sporting protective boot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kornet (ankle) is utilizing crutches and wearing a protective walking boot Saturday, K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

The 24-year-old was already ruled out for Saturday's contest with the Suns due to the ankle sprain, but sporting the boot essentially guarantees he'll also remain sidelined Sunday against the Wizards. Kornet has yet to be provided an official timetable for his return, though he initially received a doubtful designation for the matchup with Phoenix.

Bulls' Luke Kornet: Out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kornet (ankle) has been ruled out for Saturday's tilt with Phoenix, Tony Gill of NBC Sports reports.

As expected, Kornet will miss his first game after spraining his ankle during Friday's practice. Daniel Gafford will receive the start at center in Kornet's stead.

Bulls' Luke Kornet: Listed doubtful
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kornet (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Saturday's game against Phoenix.

Kornet sprained his ankle at practice Friday and is expected to miss at least one game, which leaves the Bulls even more shorthanded up front, as Wendell Carter (ankle) is also unlikely to suit up. Expect Daniel Gafford and Cristiano Felicio to handle most of the center minutes if neither of the aforementioned big men play.

Bulls' Luke Kornet: Sprains ankle, no timetable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kornet sprained his ankle during Friday's practice and is without a timetable for a return, K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

The seriousness of Kornet's injury hasn't been determined, so it's unclear when he'll return. In his absence, Cristiano Felicio and Daniel Gafford could see extra run.

Bulls' Luke Kornet: Scores career-high 25
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kornet compiled 25 points (10-14 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 1-1 FT), two rebounds and one block in 29 minutes during Sunday's 118-111 loss to the 76ers.

Kornet finished with a career high scoring total while missing just four of his 14 field-goal attempts, though he contributed minimally beyond the scoring and three-point shooting columns. Moreover, Kornet fouled out trying to deal with Joel Embiid. Wendell Carter (ankle) and Lauri Markkanen (pelvis) are both expected to return to the rotation sometime after the All-Star break, but until then Kornet could maintain decent value in deeper leagues.

Bulls' Luke Kornet: Goes for 19 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kornet went for 19 points (7-11 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 28 minutes during Friday's 133-118 loss at Brooklyn.

Kornet has started nine straight games, as he is taking advantage of the fact that both Lauri Markkanen (pelvis) and Wendell Carter Jr. (ankle) are sidelined, while Daniel Gafford (thumb) has also missed eight straight games. He is averaging 10.2 points and 3.3 rebounds in 22.8 minutes per game since he moved to the starting lineup and while he should continue to see a healthy dose of minutes moving forward, he is not producing enough nor showing enough consistency to be considered as a long-term fantasy asset.

Bulls' Luke Kornet: Gets starting nod
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kornet (ankle) is starting Friday against Brooklyn, Chuck Swirsky of the Bulls Radio Network reports.

As expected, Kornet will be ready to take the court Friday despite nursing a right ankle injury. He's averaging 9.1 points and 3.3 rebounds over his last eight starts.

Bulls' Luke Kornet: Probable again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kornet (ankle) is probable for Friday's game against the Nets.

Kornet carried the same designation into Wednesday's game against the Pacers and wound up playing 20 minutes, finishing with six points, four rebounds and one block. Assuming he's cleared to play Friday, Kornet should remain in the starting lineup with Wendell Carter (ankle) and Daniel Gafford (thumb) both sidelined with injuries.

Bulls' Luke Kornet: Gets start Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kornet (ankle) is starting Wednesday against the Pacers.

Kornet sprained his ankle during Monday's win over the Spurs but will play through the issue Wednesday. With Wendell Carter (ankle) and Daniel Gafford (thumb) both sidelined, Kornet will stick in the starting lineup for an eighth straight game. Over the past seven games (all starts), Kornet is averaging 9.6 points, 3.1 rebounds and 2.1 assists in 22.4 minutes.

Bulls' Luke Kornet: Probable Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kornet is probable for Wednesday's game against the Pacers due to a sprained right ankle.

Kornet has emerged from Monday's win against the Spurs with a sprained ankle, but he should be fine for Wednesday. Across his past seven games (all starts), he's averaged 9.6 points, 3.1 rebounds and 2.1 assists in 22.4 minutes.

Bulls' Luke Kornet: Continues steady play in starting five
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kornet produced 15 points (6-10 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), three rebounds, two assists, a steal and a blocked shot across 18 minutes in Wednesday's 117-110 win over the Timberwolves.

Kornet looked extremely comfortable under the basket in his fourth game as a starter. The 7-1 center found himself on the receiving end of a couple of alley-oops courtesy of Tomas Satoransky, and also converted some impressive put-backs. With both Wendell Carter and Daniel Gafford sidelined, the Bulls will need Kornet to hold up the frontcourt alongside Lauri Markkanen.

Bulls' Luke Kornet: Scores 11 points as starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kornet had 11 points (4-7 FG, 3-5 3PT), four assists, three rebounds and one block in 22 minutes during Saturday's 118-116 win over the Cavaliers.

Kornet has started each of Chicago's last two games and has registered double-digit scoring figures in four of his last five contests. That said, his playing time remains heavily inconsistent and his bigger role of late might only be due to the fact the Bulls are depleted with injuries in their frontcourt. As such, he might remain serviceable but would fit better as a streamer in most formats.

Bulls' Luke Kornet: Scores 13 in 28 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kornet collected 13 points (4-10 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 3-5 FT), three rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal in 28 minutes during Friday's 100-89 loss to the 76ers.

Kornet was listed as probable due to a sprained right thumb, this after carrying the same designation heading into Wednesday's bout versus the Wizards. With Wendell Carter (ankle) and Daniel Gafford (thumb) both sidelined for at least the next few weeks, Kornet seems likely to continue holding down the fort as the starting center and could be an intriguing cheap option in daily leagues for Saturday's matchup versus the Cavaliers.

Bulls' Luke Kornet: Cleared to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kornet (thumb) has been cleared to play Friday against the 76ers.

Kornet carried a similar tag into Wednesday's game and wound up playing 35 minutes, finishing with 10 points, four rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal. Kornet should see the majority of minutes at center for the Bulls with Wendell Carter (ankle) and Daniel Gafford (thumb) both sidelined.

Bulls' Luke Kornet: Nursing thumb sprain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kornet is probable for Wednesday's game against Washington due to a right thumb sprain.

Kornet has played big minutes over the last two contests (25 and 22 minutes), but he appears to be dinged up following Monday night's matchup against Boston. Despite this, it doesn't seem as though he'll miss any time as a result of the injury, considering he's been tagged as probable.

Bulls' Luke Kornet: Blows up off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kornet posted 15 points (6-13 FG, 3-9 3Pt), six rebounds, two blocks, two steals and one assist in 25 minutes off the bench Saturday in the Bulls' 108-99 win over the Pistons.

Kornet has been outside of the Bulls' rotation since mid-November, but Wendell Carter's (ankle) projected 4-to-6-week absence has opened up playing time for the Vanderbilt product. With Carter sidelined for his third straight game Saturday, Daniel Gafford drew the start at center, but the rookie essentially split minutes at the position with Kornet. Expect a rough timeshare to remain in place for the duration of Carter's absence, which may make it difficult to predict which of the two big men may be a better fantasy option on a game-by-game basis.

Bulls' Luke Kornet: Garbage time appearance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kornet had three points, one rebound and one block in five minutes during Saturday's 116-81 victory over Atlanta.

Kornet made a rare appearance during garbage time, just the sixth time he has been in action over the past 23 games. He is not a part of the current plans for the Bulls and has no fantasy value.
