Theis agreed Monday to a four-year, $36 million contract with the Rockets, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. The deal is expected to be part of the Victor Oladipo trade exception, which means a sign-and-trade with the Bulls is likely.
Theis saw action with the Celtics and Bulls last season, with the big man averaging 9.6 points, 5.5 rebounds and 1.7 assists. It's not clear which of Theis, Christian Wood and rookie Alperen Sengun will nab the two starting frontcourt spots, but even if Theis comes off the bench, he should see sixth-man minutes.
Theis (hip) will not play Sunday against the Bucks.
Theis has been battling a sprained hip for the last few games, and with nothing on the line Sunday he'll be held out of action. Theis will end the season having missed four of the final five games.
Theis (hip) remains out Saturday against the Nets.
Theis is set to miss his third game in four tries Saturday as he continues to deal with a sprained right hip. In his absence, Thaddeus Young should draw another start.
Theis (hip) will not play Thursday against Toronto, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.
Theis will be absent for the second time across the last three games due to a right hip strain. Thaddeus Young could be in line for a start with Theis sidelined.
Theis (hip) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Raptors.
The big man was able to play through the strained hip Tuesday night against Brooklyn, but it looks like he's still bothered by the issue a day later. With the Bulls all but eliminated from playoff contention, it's possible Theis could be held out on a precautionary basis.
Theis had 10 points (3-4 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, two assists and one block in Tuesday's loss to the Nets.
After missing a game with a minor hip injury, Theis returned to the starting five and saw 21 minutes of action, while Thaddeus Young (24 minutes) and Lauri Markkanen (19 minutes) also factored into the frontcourt rotation. Theis is capable of being a high-value DFS option on any given night, but he tends not to be an overly consistent fantasy player.
Theis (hip) will return to the starting lineup Tuesday against the Nets.
After missing one game due to a minor hip issue, Theis will be back in the lineup at power forward alongside Nikola Vucevic. The big man is not expected to face any strict limitations.
Theis (hip) is on track to play Tuesday against Brooklyn, Rob Schaefer of NBC Sports Chicago reports.
Theis was held out of Sunday's win over Detroit with a minor hip injury, but all indications are that he'll be back in the lineup Tuesday. The big man just needs to make it through a pregame workout before he's officially given the green light.
Thies (hip) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Nets.
Theis missed his first game since early April in Sunday's win over Detroit, and he has a 50-50 chance to return for Tuesday. Thaddeus Young would likely receive another start if Theis is forced to miss a second-consecutive game.
Theis (hip) will not play Sunday against the Pistons.
He was questionable coming in, and Theis' bruised hip will ultimately cost him at least one game as Chicago heads into the final week of the regular season. Thaddeus Young is the most likely option to enter the starting lineup at power forward in Theis' place.
Theis (hip) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Detroit.
Theis hasn't missed a game since early April, but he's uncertain for Sunday's game due to a right hip bruise. If he's unavailable, Lauri Markkanen could see an increased workload.
Theis recorded nine points (3-9 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds and a steal across 29 minutes in Friday's 121-99 win over the Celtics.
One shouldn't expect reliable everyday production from Theis, as the presence of Thaddeus Young and Patrick Williams will usually negatively impact his potential to pop for a big score. In facing his former team, Theis contributed a solid rebounding total, which he's done consistently since joining the Bulls. Solid scoring totals have evaded him, however.
Theis collected 12 points (5-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks in a 120-99 victory over the Hornets on Thursday.
Theis scored in double figures for the fourth time in his last six games and picked up multiple steals and blocks for just the fourth time this season. The forward will likely see fewer scoring opportunities with Nikola Vucevic and Zach LaVine both back in the lineup but has averaged 12.5 points and 8.0 rebounds across his last six games.
Theis had just six points (3-9 FG, 0-3 3Pt) and four rebounds in Wednesday's loss to the Knicks.
Two nights after posting 23 points, 12 rebounds, five assists and two blocks in Miami, Theis had one of his worst games of the season in 21 minutes of action. Coach Billy Donovan pivoted away from Theis in the second half, turning instead to Lauri Markkanen (25 minutes for the full game) and Thaddeus Young (29 minutes) for minutes up front alongside Nikola Vucevic (37 minutes).
Theis registered 23 points (10-13 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-3 FT), 12 rebounds, five assists and two blocks in 32 minutes during Monday's 110-102 win over the Heat.
The 29-year-old came out of nowhere to post his fifth double-double of the season. Before Monday's game, Theis was averaging just 7.7 points, 4.8 rebounds and 0.5 blocks in 23.8 minutes over his last six games, so fantasy managers should take this performance with a grain of salt. Still, the fourth-year center is starting for the 12th-seeded Bulls, so feel free to stream him in deeper formats if you need blocks and field-goal percentage along with low-end points and rebounds.
This posted seven points (3-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-3 FT), three rebounds and three assists in Friday's loss to Memphis.
Theis moved into the starting five alongside Nikola Vucevic but didn't provide much of a spark. Both Thaddeus Young (22 minutes) and Lauri Markkanen (21 minutes) ended up seeing roughly the same workload, and that will likely continue to be the case for the time being.
Theis played 27 minutes off the bench and contributed 16 points (7-12 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal during Wednesday's loss to the Magic.
Though Theis was mainly a starter with the Celtics, he's been relegated to bench duty with the Bulls, as the team also acquired Nikola Vucevic at the trade deadline. After a sluggish start with his new team, Theis has come on strong of late, scoring in double figures in five of his last six games (including a double-double). Over his last three games, he's been even better, averaging 15.7 points, 5.7 rebounds and 1.3 steals while shooting 58.8 percent from the floor in 27.7 minutes of action.
Theis posted 13 points (5-10 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds, three assists and three steals in Sunday's loss to Minnesota.
Theis played only 12 minutes against Atlanta on Friday, but he saw 29 minutes of action Sunday, compared to just 27 for Nikola Vucevic, who struggled to keep up with Karl-Anthony Towns on the defensive end. Theis' workload will likely continue to fluctuate on a matchup basis, and his well-rounded stat profile can make him useful in deeper formats. If he can maintain a role in the 25-minutes-per-night range, he could have some utility in standard leagues, as well.
Theis tallied 14 points (6-9 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-3 FT), 10 rebounds and three assists across 27 minutes in a 122-113 win over the Raptors on Thursday.
This was by far Theis' best performance since joining the Bulls on March 25 -- prior to Thursday, he had been averaging a modest 6.3 points and 3.8 rebounds despite getting 20-plus minutes in every game since the trade that brought him to Chicago. Prior to the move, Theis had averaged 9.5 points, 5.2 boards and 1.0 blocks over 42 games with the Celtics.
Theis (personal) is not on the injury report ahead of Thursday's game against the Raptors.
Theis was away from the team for Tuesday's game against the Pacers due to personal reasons, but it appears he'll be able to return Thursday. In four games with the Bulls, he's averaged 6.3 points, 3.8 rebounds and 2.0 assists over 21.5 minutes per game.
