Blakeney is expected to remain in the rotation for Tuesday's game against the Clippers.
Blakeney was recalled from the G-League late last week and is coming off his most extensive playing time with the Bulls after logging 19 minutes during Sunday's tilt with the Hawks. Coach Fred Hoiberg indicated during his pregame press conference that Blakeney's improved defense and efficiency will get him on the court again Tuesday, so a similar workload could be fielded against the Clippers. Blakeney's presence in the rotation could result in Justin Holiday receiving a DNP-CD once again.
Blakeney has not played in a game for Chicago since Jan. 31 against Portland, where he saw six minutes, so it seems unlikely he'll see significant run Friday against Detroit, especially considering the Bulls don't have any significant injuries. In the G-League this season, he's averaged 32.0 points, 6.6 rebounds and 3.9 assists across 38.2 minutes per game.
Blakeney provided 30 points (8-23 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 11-13 FT), five assists and three rebounds during Wednesday's 102-97 home victory over Iowa.
Coming off his worst scoring game of the year, Blakeney still struggled from the floor somewhat but was still able to reach the 30-point mark. The G League's current leading scorer has attempted 20-plus shots in seven of his last eight games as he continues to play a major role in Windy City's offense. The 21-year-old from LSU is averaging 32.0 points and 6.6 rebounds per contest.
Blakeney recorded 37 points (12-25 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 12-13 FT), four rebounds, two steals, one assist and one block during Sunday's narrow 112-109 defeat of the host Red Claws.
Blakeney's tremendous first season continues as his 37 point performance Sunday was his most since Jan. 26 when he went off for 42 points. The G-League's leading scorer only key setback is that he has shown struggles from three-point range this season, as he is shooting a mere 21.7 percent from deep during his last three outings and 34.9 percent on the season. Blakeney will find other ways to score though, as his free-throw performance Sunday indicates.
Blakeney managed 34 points (14-27 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 4-6 FT), five steals, three assists and one rebound during Wednesday's 118-112 win over visiting Delaware.
Blakeney continued his torrid scoring pace this season by adding 34 points in the win. The first year player out of Louisiana State is currently leading the G-League in scoring by a wide margin at 32.8 points. He is also adding an impressive 7.0 rebounds and 4.4 assists in each game for Windy City. Blakeney should continue to produce 30 plus scoring games this season, as he has proven that he is the most vital part of the Windy City Bulls' offense.
