Bulls' Lauri Markkanen: Shooting without pain
Markkanen (elbow) shot three-pointers at practice Wednesday, KC Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Markkanen has progressed beyond basic conditioning work, but per a report from the team earlier this week, he remains 2-to-4 weeks away from returning to game action.... See More ... See Less
Bulls' Wendell Carter: Flirts with double-double Monday
Carter produced seven points (3-9 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), 10 rebounds, two blocks, one assist and one steal across 27 minutes in Monday's 103-98 loss to the Mavericks.
After posting three-straight double-doubles, Carter has failed to do so in each of the last two contests, although he has been close in each try. On top h=of his consistent production in those two categories, Carter has collected multiple blocks in six of his last seven games, showing his versatility to play on both ends of the floor....

Bulls' Justin Holiday: Collects 14 points Monday
Holiday posted 14 points (5-9 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three rebounds and two steals across 36 minutes in Monday's 103-98 loss to the Mavericks.
Holiday has been inconsistent to say the least this year, as he has failed to put together more than three consecutive double-digit point games this whole season. However, he does contribute in all five major categories, making him a valuable asset to the Bulls and owners alike.... See More ... See Less
Bulls' Jabari Parker: Collects 16 points Monday
Parker registered 16 points (6-17 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), six rebounds and two assists across 30 minutes in Monday's 103-98 loss to the Mavericks.
Parker continues to get his fair share of looks from the floor on a shallow Chicago roster, but he hasn't done that much with his opportunities. He has just one game of double-digit rebounds, and while scoring has been consistent, he doesn't contribute much else besides rebounds, which he will have to improve on to be more of an impact player down the road....

Bulls' Zach LaVine: Scores game-high 26 points Monday
LaVine recorded 26 points (8-23 FG, 0-6 3Pt, 10-11 FT), five rebounds, five assists and four steals across 41 minutes in Monday's 103-98 loss to the Mavericks.
LaVine has been a consistent provider of points and energy for the Bulls, resulting in a plethora of minutes. His turnover count of seven and his poor night from three-point are quite concerning, but his electric play on both sides of the court should keep him a staple in the Bulls' lineup.... See More ...

Bulls' Lauri Markkanen: Still 2-4 weeks away
Markkanen remains 2-to-4 weeks away from returning to game action, KC Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.
We're coming up on seven weeks since Markkanen suffered the elbow injury that's kept him off the floor to begin this season, and while he's making progress, he'll likely remain out beyond the initial, 6-to-8-week timetable handed down by the team. Coach Fred Hoiberg said the Bulls are exercising caution, and he implied that Markkanen's absence would likely stretch into the month of December. The second-year forward will likely be eased back into action once healthy, but he'll eventually enter the lineup at forward and be among the Bulls' top offensive options.... See More ... See Less
Bulls' Cameron Payne: Out of rotation
Payne did not play in Saturday's win over the Cavaliers, and he's not expected to be in the rotation Monday against Dallas, Cody Westerlund of 670 The Score reports.
Payne has been a major factor in the rotation for much of the year in the wake of Kris Dunn's injury, but he was shelved Saturday in favor of Ryan Arcidiacono and Shaq Harrison. All signs point to Payne picking up another DNP-CD on Monday, as coach Fred Hoiberg confirmed to reporters Sunday that he'll stick with his current point guard rotation for the time being....

Bulls' Ryan Arcidiacono: To remain in starting lineup
Arcidiacono will remain in the starting lineup Monday against the Mavs, Cody Westerlund of 670 The Score reports.
Arcidiacono moved into the starting five Saturday against Cleveland and played 30 minutes, finishing with 15 points, four rebounds and a pair of assists. Coach Fred Hoiberg confirmed that he'll stick with the same point guard rotation Monday, featuring Arcidiacono as the primary option, with Shaq Harrison as the backup.... See More ... See Less
Bulls' Shaquille Harrison: Collects three steals in 18 minutes Saturday
Harrison had six points (3-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 0-1 FT), three rebounds, three assists, and three steals in 18 minutes during Saturday's 99-98 victory over Cleveland.
Harrison played 18 minutes off the bench Saturday, finishing with just six points but adding three steals. He has a knack of collecting defensive stats with regularity and given the Bulls current situation, could be in line for a role off the bench moving forward. Cameron Payne was out of the rotation for this one and until Kris Dunn returns, Harrison is worth keeping an eye on in deeper formats.... See More ... See Less
Bulls' Wendell Carter: Blocks three more shots Saturday
Carter totaled 15 points (5-6 FG, 5-8 FT), five rebounds, three blocks, and one assist in 25 minutes during Saturday's 99-98 victory over the Cavaliers.
Carter helped the Bulls to just their fourth victory of the season Saturday, scoring 15 points and adding three blocked shots. This sort of production has become standard for the rookie who continues to exceed expectations. Despite the Bulls seemingly lost season, Carter should be just fine and needs to be rostered everywhere.... See More ... See Less
Bulls' Ryan Arcidiacono: Plays 29 minutes in starting role
Arcidiacono finished with 15 points (6-8 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 0-1 FT), four rebounds, and two assists in 29 minutes during Saturday's 99-98 victory over Cleveland.
Arcidiacono moved into the starting lineup at the expense of Cameron Payne, scoring 15 points including three triples. Payne was out of the rotation in this one and it looks as though Arcidiacono could be in line for a stint as the starter. Despite the promotion, he doesn't offer a lot of upside and should be left for deeper formats.... See More ... See Less
Bulls' Zach LaVine: Leads team with 24 points Saturday
LaVine had 24 points (9-22 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), eight rebounds, five assists, and two steals in 39 minutes during Saturday's 99-98 victory over the Cavaliers.
LaVine helped the Bulls to just their fourth win of the season Saturday, scoring 24 points on 9-of-22 shooting. He continues to be the focal point on offense for a team lacking in scoring options. He is delivering some nice all-around production for those who took a chance on him and should be locked into similar minutes even upon the return of a number of key players.... See More ... See Less
Bulls' Cameron Payne: Moving to bench
Payne will come off the bench Saturday against the Cavs, KC Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.
The Bulls will go with Ryan Arcidiacono at point guard Saturday, as Payne moves to bench following a game in which he played only 15 minutes in a loss to New Orleans. Payne hasn't scored more than eight points in any contest since Oct. 29.... See More ... See Less
Bulls' Ryan Arcidiacono: Starting Saturday
Arcidiacono will start Saturday against the Cavs, KC Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.
The Bulls will mix things up at point guard and go with Arcidiacono over Cam Payne in a move that ultimately won't mean much for fantasy implications. Arcidiacono played 33 minutes in the Bulls' last game against New Orleans and finished with 11 points, three boards and two assists.... See More ... See Less
