Celtics' Luke Kornet: Four blocks in road win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kornet generated three points (1-4 FG, 1-4 3Pt), three rebounds, three assists and four blocks over 18 minutes in Thursday's 121-113 road win over the Lakers.

Kornet has clearly established himself ahead of fellow new Celtic Moritz Wagner on the Boston depth chart. The "Green Kornet" supplied some much needed rim protection in Robert Williams' (knee) absence. On 42 three-point attempts this season, the 7-foot-2 Kornet is shooting 31.0 percent from behind the arc. The Vanderbilt product will probably see his minutes reduced Saturday versus the Warriors as Williams is expected to return to action.

Celtics' Luke Kornet: Not expected to play Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kornet (recently traded) will be in uniform but is not expected to play Friday against the Bucks, Gary Washburn of The Boston Globe reports.

Even once Kornet is deemed ready to see game action with his new team, it's not clear if he'll be a regular part of the rotation. Between Robert Williams, Tristan Thompson and possibly Moritz Wagner, the center spot has plenty of minutes occupied already.

Celtics' Luke Kornet: Dealt to Boston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Celtics acquired Kornet and Moritz Wagner on Thursday in a three-team trade involving the Wizards and Bulls, Mark Murphy of the Boston Herald reports. Washington will receive Daniel Gafford and Chandler Hutchison in the deal, while Chicago receives Daniel Theis, Troy Brown and Javonte Green.

Kornet will likely find himself behind Tristan Thompson (COVID-19 health and safety protocols), Robert Williams and Wagner on the depth chart at center, so the move to Boston probably won't open up much playing time for the Vanderbilt product. He struggled to get off the bench in Chicago when the Bulls were at full strength, appearing in only 13 of the team's 43 games while averaging 7.2 minutes.

Bulls' Luke Kornet: Not on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kornet (personal) isn't on the injury report for Thursday's game against the 76ers.

Kornet missed the Bulls' final game before the All-Star break due to personal reasons, but he'll be back in action against Philadelphia on Thursday. The 25-year-old has averaged 3.0 points and 1.9 rebounds over 9.4 minutes per game across his past eight appearances.

Bulls' Luke Kornet: Out for personal reasons
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kornet won't play Wednesday against the Pelicans due to personal reasons.

Kornet has seen an uptick in playing time lately; across his past eight appearances, he's averaged 3.0 points and 1.9 rebounds in 9.4 minutes. However, he'll sit out for the Bulls' final game before the break. That could create more minutes for Daniel Gafford.

Bulls' Luke Kornet: Catches fire in third quarter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kornet finished with 11 points (4-5 FG, 3-4 3Pt), five rebounds and three blocks across 12 minutes off the bench Friday in the Bulls' 106-97 loss to the Suns.

Kornet drilled all three of his three-pointers in a two-minute stretch in the third quarter, with his outburst giving the Bulls a lead heading into the final period. Chicago was unable to prevail, but Kornet's hot shooting should be enough for him to maintain a spot in the rotation ahead of Daniel Gafford through the All-Star break. Kornet will likely be one of the first players to lose minutes when one of Lauri Markkanen (shoulder) and Otto Porter (back) returns to action, however.

Bulls' Luke Kornet: Doesn't play in Monday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kornet didn't play in the Bulls' 120-100 win over Houston on Monday.

This was the second straight contest in which Kornet was kept on the bench, as the center has been a non-factor so far throughout his fourth season in the league. Kornet is currently averaging just 1.3 points and 1.4 rebounds across 6.9 minutes in seven appearances.

February 13, 2021 09:12 AM
Bulls' Luke Kornet: Scores seven points in 15 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kornet tallied seven points (3-6 FG, 1-3 3Pt) and three rebounds across 15 minutes in Friday's 125-106 loss to the Clippers.

It marked nearly 12 months since the last time Kornet played 10 minutes in a game. Though the COVID-19 pandemic plays a part, he has not been considered an integral component for the Bulls to begin with. They have started either Wendell Carter or Daniel Gafford at center, with taller forwards like Lauri Markkanen and Thaddeus Young also taking up many minutes.

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

Kornet (not injury related) is out Sunday against the Mavericks.

It's not clear why Kornet is away from the team or how long he'll be gone. He's appeared in just one game this season and isn't projected to have a significant role, so his absence isn't shaking things up in the rotation.

Bulls' Luke Kornet: Not with team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kornet is not with the team and will miss Friday's game against the Thunder.

It's not clear why Kornet is away from the team or how long he'll be gone. He's appeared in just one game this season and isn't projected to have a significant role, so his absence isn't shaking things up in the rotation.

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.

February 21, 2020 05:52 PM
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.

February 21, 2020 02:52 PM
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.

February 1, 2020 10:36 AM
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.

January 30, 2020 06:08 PM
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.
