Felicio and a rehabbing Zach LaVine (knee) joined the G League affiliate for practice Tuesday, but both are expected to be recalled later in the day. The Brazilian center hasn't played in any of Chicago's last five games with head coach Fred Hoiberg rolling with Robin Lopez, Lauri Markkanen, Nikola Mirotic and Bobby Portis as the team's primary big men.
Felicio was recalled from the G-League on Friday.
The 25-year-old has not been a part of the Bulls' regular rotation for most of the season, and he's appeared in only five contests in the month of December. In two games for the Windy City Bulls, Felicio averaged 22.0 points, 13.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 3.0 steals and 3.5 blocks.
Felicio was assigned to the G-League on Thursday.
Felicio has seen the court in just two of the Bulls last eight games, playing a total of 12 minutes. For that reason, he'll be sent to the team's G-League affiliate, where Felicio should be given added opportunities to hone his craft. Once recalled, Felicio will merely be a depth option in the frontcourt and shouldn't be relied upon for fantasy purposes.
Felicio was recalled from the G-League on Sunday, K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Felicio has fallen out of Chicago's regular rotation of late, so he made his G-League debut Saturday, posting 22 points (10-14 FG, 2-3 FT), 13 rebounds, three steals and four blocks across 36 minutes. It allowed Felicio to get some much-needed extended playing time, though he'll now return to the Bulls after a one-game stint. Unless an injury occurs, however, Felicio can be avoided for fantasy purposes.
Felicio had two points (1-2 FG), eight rebounds, and one block in 23 minutes during Saturday's 101-69 loss to the Thunder.
This was the first time this season that Felicio saw 20-plus minutes, as Robin Lopez and Lauri Markkanen provide plenty of competition for playing time even without Bobby Portis (suspension) factoring into the equation yet. Nevertheless, Felicio could emerge as a factor in deeper leagues if Lopez were to be dealt at some point before the trade deadline.
