Bulls' DeMar DeRozan: Leads Bulls with 29 points in win
DeRozan finished Wednesday's 111-105 win over Toronto with 29 points (11-19 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 6-7 FT), seven rebounds and seven assists over 37 minutes.
DeRozan had himself another productive outing Wednesday, scoring at least 20 points for the sixth consecutive game. After an embarrassing loss to the Magic, the Bulls have now put together two wins, getting them back on track as they push for a high playoff seed. DeRozan is putting together arguably the best individual season of his career, and managers simply have to be thrilled with his output thus far.... See More ... See Less
Bulls' Coby White: Quiet night Wednesday
White closed with nine points (4-10 FG, 1-4 3Pt), one rebound, one assist and one block over 24 minutes during Wednesday's 111-105 victory over Toronto.
White was unable to get anything going on the offensive end Wednesday, ending the night with a very inspirational line. His overall value is tied almost completely to his ability to score the basketball, and so when that is not happening, he has very little to fall back on. With that being said, he remains a firm hold in 12-team leagues given the current state of the Bulls backcourt.... See More ... See Less
Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Nears triple-double in win
Vucevic registered 17 points (8-11 FG, 1-2 3Pt), 15 rebounds and eight assists across 35 minutes during Wednesday's 111-105 victory over Toronto.
Vucevic was phenomenal in the victory, falling just two assists short of a triple-double. While the lack of defensive contributions cannot go unnoticed, his efficiency from the floor bucks the trend he has set for himself this season. With Lonzo Ball and Alex Caruso both on the shelf for an extended period of time, it is highly possible Vucevic takes on more of a facilitation role moving forward. This could have a two-pronged effect on both his field goal percentage and his assist numbers.... See More ... See Less
Bulls' Troy Brown: Shifts to bench
Brown will come off the bench for Wednesday's game against the Raptors.
With DeMar DeRozan back in the lineup after getting a rest day Monday, Brown will shift back to the bench. The 22-year-old is averaging 4.5 points, 3.1 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 16.6 minutes per game this season.... See More ... See Less
Bulls' Derrick Jones: Will be re-evaluated in 1-2 weeks
Jones (finger) will be re-evaluated in 1-to-2 weeks to determine if he can play with a splint on his finger, Cody Westerlund of 670TheScore.com reports.
Jones was initially given a timetable of 6-to-8 weeks, so this is a potentially big development for his return to the court. While coach Billy Donovan didn't seem optimistic about Jones being cleared to play with a splint, fantasy managers will at least get some sort of clarification sooner than later.... See More ...

Bulls' Tyler Cook: Good to go Wednesday
Cook (eye) will play Wednesday against the Raptors, Rob Schaefer of NBC Sports Chicago reports.
Cook took an elbow to the face during Monday's game against the Thunder and was forced to exit the game early. However, it appears the injury wasn't severe enough to keep him out of Wednesday's matchup with Toronto. Cook is averaging 4.3 points and 3.5 rebounds in 12.8 minutes per game this season, and he should retain his spot in the rotation barring any setbacks.... See More ... See Less
Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Available Wednesday
Vucevic (knee) will play Wednesday against the Raptors, Cody Westerlund of 670TheScore.com reports.
Vucevic was probable for Wednesday's contest so it's no surprise he'll be suiting up for Chicago. He's averaged 17.8 points, 12.2 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 1.6 blocks across the past five games.... See More ... See Less
Bulls' Derrick Jones: Breaks finger, out 6-8 weeks
Jones (knee) was diagnosed with a fractured right index finger Wednesday following a recent workout, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. He's expected to be sidelined for 6-to-8 weeks.
Jones was already set to be out 2-to-4 weeks due to a bone bruise in his right knee, but he now has a longer-term injury to contend with. The extended recovery timeline for Jones deals another tough blow to the already-shorthanded Bulls, who may start slowly falling down the Eastern Conference standings. In Jones' absence, more playing time should be available for Javonte Green, Alfonzo McKinnie, Troy Brown and other wing players.... See More ... See Less
Bulls' Tyler Cook: Questionable vs. Raptors
Cook (eye) is questionable for Wednesday's contest against the Raptors.
Cook left Monday's game against the Thunder due to an eye injury, and his availability may come down to a game-time call Wednesday. With the Bulls dealing with so many injuries, Cook should be in the rotation if healthy.... See More ... See Less
Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Probable vs. Raptors
Vucevic is probable for Wednesday's matchup against the Raptors due to a left patella contusion.
Vucevic hasn't missed a game since late November, and that probably won't change Wednesday. He's double-doubled in four straight contests, with averages of 20.5 points, 12.8 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.5 blocks in 35.3 minutes.... See More ... See Less
Bulls' Marko Simonovic: Logs another G League double-double
Simonovic tallied 15 points (5-8 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-5 FT), 11 rebounds and a blocked shot across 31 minutes in Windy City's 103-101 victory versus Capital City on Monday.
Simonovic has doubled-doubled twice in four games since returning to the G League club Jan. 18. The rookie posted a strong line Monday without dominating the ball; his eight shot attempts were only fifth-most on the team. The Bulls appear to be giving Simonovic a chance to develop in the G League since he has averaged only 3.9 minutes over his nine NBA contests this season.... See More ... See Less
Bulls' Lonzo Ball: Surgery coming later this week
Bulls head coach Billy Donovan confirmed Monday that Ball will undergo surgery later this week to repair the small meniscus tear in his left knee, Cody Westerlund of 670TheScore.com reports.
The Bulls aren't expected to provide an official timeline for Ball's return until surgery is completed, but Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported Thursday that the point guard is expected to require 4-to-6 weeks of recovery time. If Ball's recovery from the procedure trends toward the longer end of that timeline, he could be sidelined for the start of the fantasy playoffs in some leagues, making him a tough player to justify stashing in the interim. As for the Bulls, they'll likely turn to Ayo Dosunmu and Coby White to cover nearly all the minutes at point guard while Ball is sidelined.... See More ... See Less
