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.
Felicio will remain in Chicago after spending his first two years in the NBA with the Bulls. Having never averaged more than 16 minutes per game, the Bulls might be ready to allow the 24-year-old to break that benchmark during the 2017-18 season since the team has transitioned into a rebuilding period where they'll likely focus on giving their young talent extended time on the court. That said, Robin Lopez still currently stands atop Felicio on the depth chart at center.
Felicio played two minutes in a 102-90 win over the 76ers on Thursday, providing zero points and one block.
Felicio has been fully recovered from a bruised lower back for nearly a week, but hadn't seen the floor in the Bulls' prior four contests despite being active, as coach Fred Hoiberg chose to stick with Joffrey Lauvergne as the primary backup to starting center Robin Lopez. Even though Felicio played Thursday, he only saw action in garbage time, so it still appears safe to conclude that Lauvergne, who scored 14 points in 15 minutes off the bench, remains ahead of him in the pecking order at center.
Felicio (back) will suit up for Thursday's matchup against the Cavaliers, Cody Westerlund of CBS Chicago reports.
The Bulls' reserve big man has missed the past three outings due to a bruised lower back, but should see the floor Thursday after logging a full practice Wednesday. He'll likely hover around the 15-minute range behind starter Robin Lopez.
Felicio (back) took part in practice Wednesday and is considered questionable to play Thursday versus Cleveland, K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.
The 24-year-old has missed the last three games due to a bruised lower-back, but after going through a full session Wednesday, he appears to have a good chance to get back on the court Thursday night. Prior to the injury, Felicio had been seeing roughly 16 minutes per game in the month of March, and unless his role increases down the stretch, he can be safely avoided in daily contests.
