White posted 20 points (7-17 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 4-5 FT), five rebounds and five assists in 38 minutes during Tuesday's 108-103 victory over the Cavaliers.
White's facilitating abilities have looked improved recently, helping his offense appear a bit more well-rounded. Over his previous six outings, the 20-year old has played at a top-30 level, putting up 24.8 points, 5.2 assists, 4.0 boards and 3.5 triples in 33.5 minutes per game, while shooting a strong 93.3 percent from the charity stripe in that span. Zach Lavine (quad) was out in four of those games, giving White the opportunity for an increased role, which he seems to have taken advantage of. White actually got the starting nod in this game, and looked good in the role. It'll be interesting to see if head coach Jim Boylen continues to start his rookie guard, or moves him back to a bench role going forward.
White stated that he's starting Tuesday's game against Cleveland, Darnell Mayberry of The Athletic reports.
While the lineup change has yet to be made official, it appears nearly certain that White will jump to the first unit for Tuesday's game against Cleveland. The rookie guard has shown well off the bench since the All-Star break, and he'll now slide into Tomas Satoransky's usual spot. The Bulls confirmed Monday that Satoransky will shift to the bench.
White scored 21 points (8-21 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 2-3 FT) while adding eight assists, six rebounds and a steal in 35 minutes off the bench during Sunday's 110-107 loss to the Nets.
The rookie continues to surge, scoring at least 20 points in seven of the last eight games and dropping 19 in the eighth. White is averaging 26.9 points, 4.4 assists, 4.1 boards, 4.1 threes and 1.0 steals in 33.8 minutes a game during that stretch, and while the Bulls have suggested he'll be moving into the starting five in the near future, the role change shouldn't impact his production given his current heavy workload.
When asked about if White will enter the starting five, coach Jim Boylen responded, "I think that day is probably coming," Rob Schaefer of NBC Sports Chicago reports.
White has really only been a reserve by title lately, as he's seen 33.3 minutes per game across the past nine. White's past seven performances, especially, have been excellent. Over this stretch, the rookie is averaging 27.7 points on 20.1 shots, plus 3.9 rebounds, 3.9 assists and 1.0 steal. When exactly White will enter the starting five remains to be seen, but it may not affect his production significantly given his already substantial role.
White posted 26 points (10-21 FG, 3-10 3Pt, 3-3 FT), six assists, two rebounds and a steal in 38 minutes during the Bulls' 108-102 Friday night loss to the Pacers.
White has now hit multiple threes in seven straight games while seeing an uptick in assists through the start of March. The Bulls have no true point guard seeing significant run outside of White (the 38 minutes marked a career-high) on the roster, so five to seven assists per night isn't an unreasonable projection as the fantasy season hits the homestretch.
White supplied 26 points (11-22 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six assists and a rebound during the Bulls' 115-108 loss to the Timberwolves on Wednesday night.
White was the leading scorer for the game in a team-high 35 minutes off the bench. He is averaging 28 points per game over his previous six contests and is certainly worth a look in all leagues. That being said, a tough matchup awaits when the Pacers come to town on Friday.
White (back) went for 19 points (8-20 FG, 3-9 3Pt), six rebounds, five assists and one steal in 32 minutes during Monday's 109-107 win over the Mavericks.
White finished with more field-goal attempts than points and almost as many turnovers (four) as assists. However, he filled up the stat sheet with Zach LaVine (quadriceps) sidelined. This was actually White's weakest scoring performance across the last five contests, as he's been on an absolute tear of late, scoring 33 or more three times during that stretch.
White (back) will be available for Monday's game against the Mavericks.
White carried a probable designation into the day, but his sore back won't prevent him from suiting up Monday night. The rookie enters the week on a hot streak, having scored 22, 35, 33, and 33 points over his last four games. In that span, White has hit 22-of-39 three-point attempts.
White (back) is considered probable for Monday's game against Dallas.
White has dealt with a minor back issue in recent days, but he played through the issue Saturday night and is expected to do the same Monday. White enters the week riding a seven-game streak of double-digit scoring, with an average of 30.8 points per game over his last four contests.
White (back) will be available Saturday against New York, K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reports.
White was considered a game-time decision after tweaking his back earlier in the week and missing Thursday's practice. He felt no discomfort while warming up and will be looking to post his fourth straight 30-point performance in Saturday's game against the Knicks.
White (back) will be a game-time decision for Saturday's tilt with the Knicks, Chuck Swirsky of the Bulls Radio Network reports.
White's status will presumably hinge on how his back feels during pregame warmups. While the team will likely supply an update on his status prior to tipoff, if White's held out, Denzel Valentine and Ryan Arcidiacono would be in line for additional minutes.
White is questionable for Saturday's game at New York, K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reports.
A tweaked back forced White to miss practice on Thursday, which may extend towards Saturday's contest at Madison Square Garden. It comes at an unfortunate time for the rookie, who has posted 33.7 points from his last three games off the bench. Shaquille Harrison, Ryan Arcidiacono and Adam Mokoka are candidates in line for more minutes if White is unavailable.
White (back) did not participate in practice Thursday, Mike McGraw of the Daily Herald reports.
It's unclear when White may have aggravated his back, but he should be considered day-to-day in advance of Saturday's game in New York. The rookie has been on a scoring binge of late, going for 33, 33 and 35 points in his last three games, respectively.
White posted 35 points (13-21 FG, 6-9 3Pt, 3-3 FT), seven rebounds and three assists across 33 minutes during Tuesday's 124-122 loss to the Thunder.
White has recorded at least 33 points in three straight games, essentially taking control of the offense along with Zach LaVine. Tuesday's 35 points marked a career high for the 20-year-old rookie. While we can't expect White to continue hitting 57.4 percent of his looks as he has over the past three games, he's taking 20.3 shots per game, which should be conducive to high scoring efforts even when his efficiency normalizes.
White notched 33 points (11-18 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 6-7 FT), six rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block in 34 minutes during Sunday's 126-117 win over the Wizards,
The rookie out of North Carolina has posted 33-point performances in back-to-back games, and he extended his double-digit scoring streak to four games. He's been outstanding in February, averaging 17.7 points per game in seven outings.
White exploded for 33 points (11-22 FG, 7-13 3Pt, 4-4 FT), three rebounds, two assists and one steal in 34 minutes off the bench during Saturday's 112-104 loss against the Suns.
The rookie out of North Carolina delivered his best game of his young NBA career since he topped the 30-minute threshold for the first time. White is yet to start a single game this season, but he has been very productive of late and has scored in double digits in six of his last seven games. He is averaging 14.6 points and 4.3 assists per game off the bench during that stretch.
White accumulated 14 points (4-14 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 4-4 FT), seven assists, five rebounds and four steals in 35 minutes during Tuesday's 125-114 loss to the Wizards.
While White's shooting wasn't especially efficient, he managed to make a strong defensive impact, tying his career high with four steals. He also passed well, racking up at least five assists with fewer than three turnovers for the fifth time in his rookie season. The all-around performance resulted in 41.5 fantasy points, which is the second-best mark of his career.
White had 14 points (5-15 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine assists and six rebounds across 31 minutes Thursday night, as the Bulls fell to the Pelicans 125-119.
The lack of efficiency was mitigated by White's strong auxiliary stats, with the nine assists representing White's new career-high distributing effort. Also, taking 15 shots is a promising sign for the rookie, displaying confidence and symbolizing that he is plenty capable of being able to boom even off the bench.
White had 23 points (8-17 FG, 5-9 3PT, 2-3 FT), five rebounds, five assists and one steal in 29 minutes off the bench during Friday's 116-105 loss against the Pacers.
White endured a slump during December where he averaged 9.4 points while shooting 37.7 percent from the field, but he seems to have turned things around once the calendar flipped. The rookie point guard is averaging 12.0 points while making 42.9 percent of his shots this month, and he will try to remain productive off the bench at the Pistons on Saturday.
White had six points (2-8 FG, 2-5 3PT) and two rebounds in Saturday's loss to Boston.
White has already proven he can get hot at a moment's notice, but he's scored just 12 total points over his last two games after back-to-back 18-point outings against the Hawks and Bucks. Considering he provides little value in non-scoring categories, White isn't much of a starting consideration in most weekly leagues.
