Bulls' Lauri Markkanen: Will play Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Markkanen (back) has been cleared to play Wednesday against the Jazz, Vincent Goodwill of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

Markkanen was held out of Monday's win over the Celtics with a back issue, but it doesn't appear to be anything serious. Expect the rookie to return to the starting lineup, likely displacing Nikola Mirotic, who started and played 32 minutes Monday.

Bulls' Lauri Markkanen: To practice Tuesday, be re-assessed Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Markkanen (back) will go through practice Tuesday and be re-evaluated Wednesday ahead of that day's game against the Jazz.

The rookie missed Monday's game against the Celtics due to back spasms. In his stead, Nikola Mirotic saw 32 minutes and posted 24 points and eight rebounds. Bobby Portis saw 23 minutes and recorded 23 points and four rebounds. Both players would likely see expanded roles once again if Markkanen is ruled out once more. But, that's a decision that will be made Wednesday. Look for more updates after that day's morning shootaround.

Bulls' Bobby Portis: Posts career-high 23 points in Monday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Portis poured in 23 points (10-15 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 0-1 FT), four rebounds, one assist, and one steal in 23 minutes during Monday's 108-85 win over the Celtics.

Portis finished with a career high in scoring while matching his career high in made threes. The absence of Lauri Markkanen (sore back) paved the way for power forwards Portis and Nikola Mirotic, who thrived while the rookie sat. It's unclear whether Markkanen will be forced to miss any more time, but if he sits Portis and Mirotic would figure to benefit most from a statistical standpoint.

Bulls' Nikola Mirotic: Scores season-high 24 points in Monday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mirotic managed 24 points (9-14 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 3-6 FT), eight rebounds, and one block in 32 minutes during Monday's 108-85 win over the Celtics.

Mirotic stepped into the starting lineup with Lauri Markkanen sidelined by a sore back and amassed season highs in scoring, boards, and minutes. Through three appearances, Mirotic is averaging 16.3 points (on 54.8 percent shooting), 4.7 rebounds, 3.0 threes (on 50.0 percent), and 0.7 blocks in 22.3 minutes per night. There is no shortage of competition for minutes in the front-court given the presence of Markkanen, Bobby Portis, and Robin Lopez, among others. However, Mirotic is making the most of his minutes thus far, and he will likely be worth a look in most leagues.

Bulls' Zach LaVine: Ten days of practice before return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lavine (knee) is expected to make his return at the start of January, as the Bulls want him to participate in 10 days of consistent practice prior to returning, Vincent Goodwill of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

Lavine has participated in a few practices with the Bulls' G-League affiliate in the past week, however the Bulls want to see him in at least 10 practices with the main roster before his comeback is complete. The Bulls have been cautious with Lavine -- there was talk of a potential mid-December return -- but with Lavine expected to be one of the building blocks for the franchise, they want to ensure he is ready to go before he sees any in-game action.
