Felicio finished with 12 points (5-6 FG, 2-2 FT), 10 rebounds and one assist in 22 minutes off the bench Wednesday in the Bulls' 117-110 win over the Timberwolves.
With both Wendell Carter (ankle) and Daniel Gafford (thumb) sidelined, Felicio has cracked the rotation in six consecutive games and seems to be gradually gaining the trust of coach Jim Boylen. Felicio has logged double-digit minutes in four straight contests and even started in the second half Wednesday, replacing Luke Kornet. It wouldn't be surprising if Felicio drew the start over Kornet on Friday against the Kings, though expect a fairly equitable timeshare to remain in place between the two in any case.
Felicio has logged double-digit minutes in each of the Bulls' last three contests.
Felicio was a DNP-CD in every game until Jan. 13, when he began to pick up a small number of minutes off the bench with injuries to both Wendell Carter Jr. and Daniel Gafford. With both big men on the shelf, coach Jim Boylen has had no choice but to go to Felicio, who's shared minutes up front with Luke Kornet, Thaddeus Young and Lauri Markkanen. Even so, Felicio hasn't garnered enough playing time (13.3 MPG over his last three) to warrant any fantasy consideration.
Felicio will rejoin the Bulls for Saturday's game against Boston.
Though it's unlikely, there's a chance for Felicio to make his season debut against the Celtics. The 27-year-old's battled through injuries for much of the season, though when healthy, he's simply served as rotational depth.
Felicio (illness) has been sent to the G League ahead of Friday's contest against the Wisconsin Herd.
Felicio has yet to appear in an NBA game this season. It seems likely that he'll garner most of his minutes with the Windy City Bulls.
Felicio (illness) isn't active for Thursday's game against Utah, Chuck Swirsky of the Bulls Radio Network reports.
Felicio was tagged as probable due to illness, but he's inactive for Thursday's clash. His next chance to take the court will come Saturday against Boston.
The Bulls list Felicio as probable for Thursday's game against the Jazz due to an illness.
Felicio looks like he'll be able to shake off the ailment ahead of the 8 p.m. ET tipoff, but expect him to remain outside of coach Jim Boylen's rotation. The center has yet to see action at the NBA level in 2019-20, with his lone playing time coming during three appearances for the G League's Windy City Bulls.
The Bulls assigned Felicio (wrist) to the G League's Windy City Bulls on Tuesday.
Felicio seems to have made a full recovery from the broken right wrist he sustained in mid-November, as he was cleared to join Windy City for practice over the weekend before rejoining the Bulls for a stretch of three games in four days. Since Felicio didn't get a chance to play in any of those contests, he'll head back to the G League to see his first game action post-injury. Expect Felicio to suit up for Windy City in Tuesday's matchup with the College Park Skyhawks.
Felicio (wrist) isn't listed on the Bulls' injury report for Monday's game against the Thunder.
After returning from a conditioning stint in the G League prior to the weekend, Felicio didn't appear in the Bulls' games Friday or Saturday. His absence from the injury report suggests he'll be available to play Monday, though Felicio wasn't in coach Jim Boylen's rotation even before fracturing his wrist in November. Felicio has yet to see the floor this season, and at this point, the Bulls are just running out the clock on the four-year, $32 million extension he signed in July 2017.
Felicio (wrist) was recalled from the G League on Friday.
Felicio was sent down earlier in the day, so it was likely just to participate in practice. He should be considered questionable ahead of Saturday's game against the Clippers.
Felicio (wrist) was assigned to the Windy City Bulls of the G League on Friday.
Felicio has been dealing with a fractured wrist since mid-November. He's yet to get into a game this season.
Felicio (wrist) is doubtful for Friday's game against the Hornets.
Felicio has yet to play this season due to a fractured right wrist, and it sounds like his debut will have to wait at least one more game as he continues to work back to 100 percent. Even when healthy, Felicio likely won't crack coach Jim Boylen's rotation.
The Bulls list Felicio (wrist) as out for Wednesday's game against the Hawks.
While Felicio still hasn't made his season debut after fracturing his right wrist in early November, the fact that the Bulls listed him as doubtful on the initial injury report before downgrading his status can be taken as a positive sign. Felicio still seems likely to miss another game or two beyond Wednesday and probably won't be included in coach Jim Boylen's rotation even when he's healthy again.
Felicio is expected to miss the next 4-to-8 weeks with a broken right wrist, K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reports.
The injury reportedly happened during Monday's practice, and it'll cost Felicio at least a month. He hasn't played this season for the Bulls, so his absence shouldn't be a huge loss.
Felicio is set to see a specialist after suffering a wrist injury, K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reports.
It's unknown when Felicio suffered the injury, but the team should know more about his availability moving forward after he visits with a specialist. He's yet to make his 2019-20 debut for Chicago.
Felicio didn't leave the bench Wednesday, remaining inactive to begin the season.
Felicio is yet to take the court for the Bulls with nothing to indicate that will change anytime soon. Daniel Gafford is the primary backup or the young Bulls team rendering Felicio irrelevant in all fantasy formats.
Felicio recorded 15 points (4-6 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 7-8 FT), five rebounds, two assists and one steal across 29 minutes in Wednesday's 118-98 loss to the Trail Blazers.
Felicio only missed two shots Wednesday night and they were both from deep, as Felicio went to work on the interior. He was most dominant at the line, where he made seven shots en route to tying his season-high scoring total.
Felicio totaled 10 points (5-8 FG), six rebounds and two assists over 25 minutes in the Bulls' loss to the Jazz on Saturday.
Felicio scored in double-digits for the third game in a row, adding six boards and two dimes. His increased playing time over his last four games have led to averages of 9.8 points and 7.5 rebounds over 20.8 minutes.
Felicio finished with 15 points (7-11 FG, 1-1 FT), six rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block across 21 minutes in the Bulls' win over the Wizards on Wednesday.
Felicio produced a season-high 15 points in Wednesday's win. He has been a rotation player all season but has been given extra playing time recently with mild results. Felicio may get some additional opportunities to close out the regular season, but he needs to be left on waivers outside of deep leagues.
Felicio ended with four points (2-3 FG), 10 rebounds, and one block in 18 minutes during Sunday's 129-102 loss to the Kings.
Felicio pulled down 10 rebounds in Sunday's loss, playing 18 minutes as a result of the game being a blowout. The starters were torched in this one which meant it was the bench soaking up most of the playing time down the stretch. Felicio can deliver steady rebounding numbers when afforded the playing time but that happens rarely and he can be left on the waivers in all leagues.
Felicio played 19 minutes and finished with six points (3-7 FG), four rebounds and one assist Wednesday in the Bulls' 125-120 loss to the Pelicans.
The Bulls were shorthanded in the frontcourt after dealing Bobby Portis and Jabari Parker to the Wizards earlier in the day, allowing Felicio to stick in the rotation as the backup center and play his most minutes since Nov. 2. Chicago is continuing to shop starter Robin Lopez around as Thursday's trade deadline nears, but even if he stays put, the team could look to buy him out of his contract. Lopez's potential departure would open up more minutes at center for Felicio, though it's possible that coach Jim Boylen also turns to Lauri Markkanen to fill a good portion of the playing time at the position.
