Vonleh will dress for Saturday's game against the Wizards but isn't expected to play, Darnell Mayberry of The Athletic reports.
Vonleh was dealt to the Bulls on Thursday and hasn't had much time to get acquainted with his new team, so it seems unlikely he'll get any minutes until after the All-Star break. Once Vonleh does break into the rotation, he is expected to compete for minutes off the bench with Omer Asik and Christiano Felicio.
Vonleh (Coach's Decision) is inactive for Friday's game against the Timberwolves, Mike McGraw of the Chicago Daily Herald reports.
The 22-year-old big man, who was traded to Chicago on Thursday, will have to make his Bulls debut another day -- possibly Saturday against the Wizards. It's unclear what his role will be, though minutes he receives could come at the expense of Paul Zipser's, Robin Lopez's and Cristiano Felicio's respective workloads.
The move allows Portland to get under the luxury tax and gives Vonleh a shot a become a larger part of team's rotation elsewhere after averaging just 14.4 minutes across 33 games so fa this season. The former ninth overall pick is stll just 22 years old and gives the Bulls another big man to develop over the course of the second half of the season. Look for Vonleh to slot in behind Robin Lopez at center, battling with Omer Asik and Christiano Felicio for minutes off the bench.
Vonleh (finger) played four minutes in Saturday's loss to the Hawks and finished with two points and one rebound.
Vonleh was considered probable to play entering Saturday and ultimately ended up seeing only a few minutes of mop-up duty. The Indiana product has fallen out of the regular rotation over the last few weeks, and he hasn't played double-digit minutes in a game since Dec. 11.
Vonleh (finger) is listed as probable for Saturday's game against the Hawks, Casey Holdahl of Blazers.com reports.
Vonleh has missed four of the previous five games due to a dislocated finger. He is a fringe rotational player, so if he is able to suit up it is unlikely to have much impact. Final confirmation on his status can be expected closer to game-time.
