The second-year guard turned in his second double-digit scoring effort over the last three games, a brief surge after a multi-game stretch of pedestrian production. Arcidiacono hadn't scored more than five points in the seven games prior to the current stretch, a sample that includes a trio of scoreless efforts. Kris Dunn's return to health Dec. 10 naturally led to a dip in production for Arcidiacono, but he'll regain some relevance if he can keep up his recent improvement over an appreciable stretch of games.
Arcidiacono has started in each of the Bulls' last 23 games, but with Kris Dunn and Zach LaVine back to full health, the 24-year-old will be relegated to his normal role off the bench. He averaged just over 30 minutes per game during that stretch, although that number will likely be a thing of the past moving forward.
Arcidiacono will start Wednesday against the Timberwolves, Mike McGraw of the Chicago Daily Herald reports.
Arcidiacono will stick in the starting five for at least one more turn with Zach LaVine (ankle) -- who is active for the first time in five games -- still not ready to take on a starter's workload. Over his last five games, Arcidiacono is averaging 8.0 points, 4.8 assists and 2.4 rebounds across 30.2 minutes. He should start to see his minutes trend downward as LaVine gets back to full health.
Arcidiacono totaled 12 points (4-6 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six assists, four rebounds, and three steals in 39 minutes during Saturday's 98-93 victory over San Antonio.
Arcidiacono remained in the starting lineup with Zach LaVine (ankle) on the sidelines. His minutes had been trending down but he put up some good numbers in this one as the Bulls staged an epic comeback victory. LaVine is going to miss at least one more game which will likely mean Arcidiacono sticks in the starting lineup.
Though Kris Dunn has played in the past two games after missing nearly two months with a sprained MCL, he's been subject to a minutes restriction in both contests while being deployed off the bench. That has allowed Arcidiacono to maintain his spot in the starting lineup, but Dunn's return has nonetheless been a negative development for the former Villanova standout. Arcidiacono has failed to top 30 minutes in six of the last seven contests and will likely drop below 20 on a regular basis once Dunn is free of restrictions and cleared to reclaim his spot in the starting five. That development would send Arcidiacono's already minimal fantasy stock plummeting even further.
