The Bulls coaching staff and front office "have been less than impressed" with Kris Dunn’s early summer work habits so far, according to Joe Cowley of the Chicago Sun Times.
First, we have to add that this report comes from someone who hasn't exactly been kind to the Bulls over the years, so keep that in mind. Plus, President John Paxson said Dunn will return as the starting point guard back in April. That aside, this is interesting to hear at this point of the year, and maybe Dunn missing so much time late in the year has influenced the Bulls front office. Dunn should still be considered the heavy favorite to start on opening night, but don't be shocked if the Bulls go with another PG at No. 7 in the draft. Jun 8 - 7:30 PM

Lauri Markkanen (back) and Zach LaVine (knee) have been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Nuggets.

This isn't all that surprising considering both these guys were limited to non-contact work on Tuesday, and this will be Markannen's fifth straight game on the sidelines due to the back issue. The Bulls have a Friday-Saturday back-to-back set coming up, so Markkanen figures to miss at least one of those games, giving him a max of one game played this week. He's a cut-candidate in most scenarios. Bobby Portis and Denzel Valentine will see some heavy usage tonight with Markkanen, LaVine and Kris Dunn (toe) all on the shelf.
Mar 21 - 12:58 PM

Lauri Markkanen (back), Kris Dunn (toe) and Zach LaVine (knee) will not play on Monday in New York.

They didn't even travel with the team, and for now, we'll be considering all these guys questionable for Wednesday's game against the Nuggets. Monday will mark Markkanen's fourth straight game on the sidelines, and at this point in the fantasy season, it's tough to justify hanging onto guys with no clear return date. Bobby Portis and Denzel Valentine will be very busy on Monday with the Bulls' stars out, and Cameron Payne should be looking at another start.
Mar 18 - 5:55 PM

Noah Vonleh will start on Tuesday vs. the Clippers.

Lauri Markkanen is out with back spasms, so Vonleh will get the start, although it'll likely be Bobby Portis picking up a majority of the four-man minutes tonight. Vonleh typically doesn't bring much to the stat sheet, so he's no the most attractive option in most leagues. With Markkanen unavailable, Kris Dunn, Zach LaVine and Portis will all see an uptick in usage.
Mar 13 - 6:51 PM

Zach LaVine (rest) will return to the starting lineup on Tuesday vs. Charlotte, as expected.

He'll replace Justin Holiday, who is bound for a DNP-CD, and he'll be joined by Kris Dunn, David Nwaba, Lauri Markkanen and Cristiano Felicio. Feel free to get LaVine active.
Feb 27 - 3:51 PM

Zach LaVine (rest) will not suit up for Monday's game in Brooklyn.

It's the first game of a back-to-back set so LaVine will get his standard rest day, but he'll be back out there on Tuesday in Charlotte. Justin Holiday might be able to get back into the rotation with LaVine unavailable, and there will be more shots for guys like Kris Dunn, Bobby Portis and Lauri Markkanen.
Feb 26 - 4:13 PM

Bulls' VP John Paxson said that Cristiano Felicio will be moving into the starting lineup on Thursday.

Paxson said the Bulls will be rolling with a starting five featuring Kris Dunn, Zach LaVine, Lauri Markkanen and Felicio in their first game after the All-Star break, and he implied that this will be a lasting move, so it sounds like Robin Lopez' days as a starter in Chicago are over. Felicio has shown flashes in the past, but with per-36 numbers of just 10.7 points, 7.6 boards, 1.9 dimes and 0.5 blocks this season, he's not much more than a low-end add in deep leagues for those seeking a big.
Feb 20 - 5:33 PM

Jerian Grant shifted to the bench with Kris Dunn (concussion) active on Wednesday, putting up six points, seven assists, two rebounds and one steal in 23 minutes.

Grant dished out six assists in the first quarter before his teammates cooled off and Toronto's defense stepped up their effort. He had some hot stretches while Dunn was out of commission, but most owners should search for a safer option on the wire.
Feb 14 - 11:56 PM

Jerian Grant hit 6-of-10 shots for 15 points on Sunday, adding five assists, four rebounds and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes of action.

Grant went off with a 22/13/5 line in 47 minutes on Monday, but he came back to earth in the two games since with averages of 8.0 points, 5.5 dimes, 1.5 steals and 1.0 rebounds. He should be a lock for minutes in the 28-34 range until Kris Dunn (concussion) returns, so you could do worse for short-term help at PG.
Jan 28 - 6:37 PM

David Nwaba started the second half vs. the Sixers on Wednesday, finishing with 10 points (3-of-4 FGs, 3-of-6 FTs), five rebounds, four assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 22 minutes.

The Bulls' starting five was crushed to begin this game, so Nwaba took the place of Jerian Grant after halftime. They fared better in the second half but still lost by 14 points. Nwaba wasn't a standard-league asset even while Zach LaVine was on the shelf, and this was likely just a one-game lineup tweak, so don't read into it.
Jan 24 - 10:45 PM

Jerian Grant came off the bench after halftime on Wednesday to finish with seven points, three assists, one rebound, one steal and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes.

Grant was scoreless during a lousy first half in which his plus/minus rating was -23 in just 13 minutes. David Nwaba took his spot to open the third quarter, but this was likely just a one-time move vs. an unorthodox opponent with a 6'10" point guard. Kris Dunn (concussion) is "almost certain" to sit out Friday, in the words of coach Fred Hoiberg, so Grant should be in line for one more start at a minimum. It also sounds like he suffered nothing worse than a fat lip after being elbowed in the mouth by Joel Embiid tonight.
Jan 24 - 10:34 PM

The Bulls have recalled Ryan Arcidiacono from the G-League.

While the Bulls haven't officially said whether or not Kris Dunn (knee) will be taking the court today, them recalling Arcidiacono from the G-League could suggest that they're expecting Dunn to sit this one out. Arcidiacono would help backup Jerian Grant if Dunn is out, but he won't be on the court enough to have a meaningful impact in fantasy hoops.

Jerian Grant finished Saturday's 117-92 loss to Boston with 10 points, two rebounds, six assists, and a 3-pointer on 4-of-8 shooting in 23.5 minutes of action.

The emergence of Kris Dunn has made Grant an afterthought in the long-term picture, and there is really no reason for him to be on your fantasy team unless you're rolling in a league that's 20-plus deep.
Sat, Dec 23, 2017 11:46:00 PM

Jerian Grant made 8-of-16 FGs and 5-of-6 FTs to finish Sunday's game with 24 points, three assists, three 3-pointers and one steal in 30 minutes off the bench.

Grant has been an unexpected windfall for owners gambling on him over the past two games, averaging 22.5 points on 61.5% shooting, 3.0 triples, 3.0 assists, 2.0 rebounds and 1.0 steals. He played the fourth quarter tonight ahead of Kris Dunn, but Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg did confirm that Dunn will stick as the starting PG. Grant is worth considering if you need a PG in deep leagues, but he's been too inconsistent to trust in most 12-team leagues.

Jerian Grant came off the bench after halftime on Wednesday, finishing with six points, three rebounds, three assists and one steal in 27 minutes vs. the Thunder.

The Bulls set a franchise-low with seven points in the first quarter, shooting a combined 2-of-16 from the field, and they trailed by 24 points at halftime. Fred Hoiberg's decision to shake up the lineup paid off to some extent, as Chicago cut into the deficit, but they were never really in this game. Grant hasn't been a reliable option at any point this season, and that's not about to change with Kris Dunn healthy and Antonio Blakeney suddenly in the mix.
Thu, Nov 16, 2017 01:03:00 AM

Quincy Pondexter will move into the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Thunder, sending Paul Zipser to the bench.

Pondexter figures to split time with Zipser at the three-spot tonight, but neither guy can be considered a viable target in most settings. Joining Pondexter in the starting five will be Jerian Grant, Kris Dunn, Lauri Markkanen and Robin Lopez.
Wed, Nov 15, 2017 01:12:00 PM

Coach Fred Hoiberg said Justin Holiday (personal) would not play Wednesday vs. OKC.

Congrats are in order, as Holiday is away from the team due to the birth of his first child. Holliday leads the Bulls in minutes (33.9 per game) and field goal attempts (14.3), so there will be plenty of playing time and scoring opportunities to go around on Wednesday. Coach Hoiberg said that Kris Dunn will likely make his first start of the season but that he was unsure who would start at small forward. Lauri Markkanen (ankle) is expected to play and could be leaned on heavily.
Tue, Nov 14, 2017 12:13:00 PM

Coach Fred Hoiberg said that Jerian Grant will remain the Bulls starting point guard.

After the Bulls were demolished by the Thunder on Saturday, Hoiberg said there would be an open competition for the starting spots. One of the jobs believed to be up for grabs was at point guard, as Kris Dunn (finger) returned to the lineup and Grant missed all seven of his FG attempts and scored just two points in the lopsided loss to OKC. However, Grant will remain the starter for now, but will likely split time with Dunn moving forward.

Jerian Grant hit just 2-of-7 shots, but still finished with 11 points, five rebounds, seven assists and a steal in 36 minutes in Thursday's win over the Hawks.

He's the default starter at point guard for the Bulls and while Kris Dunn (finger) is due back soon, there's a pretty good chance Grant will keep the job, at least initially. If you've been using him thus far, you might as well keep rolling with him, as starting point guards aren't going to be available on the wire. And Grant has at least been serviceable despite the poor shooting.
Thu, Oct 26, 2017 10:59:00 PM

Jerian Grant hit 4-of-8 shots and a 3-pointer for 12 points, six boards, 10 assists and a steal in 32 minutes of Tuesday's loss to the Cavs.

Someone has to play point guard for the Bulls and Grant's basically been the only option thus far. He's been serviceable in his three games, but tonight's line was easily his best one so far. He's averaging 10.7 points, 4.0 rebounds, 7.3 assists and 1.0 steals per game, but it sounds like Kris Dunn could be back from his finger injury as soon as Thursday, which means this party could be coming to an end.
Tue, Oct 24, 2017 09:36:00 PM

Jerian Grant started at point guard and hit 2-of-11 shots and 1-of-6 3-pointers for eight points, six rebounds, five assists, two steals and a block in 28 minutes on Tuesday.

Kris Dunn is out for 2-4 weeks with a wrist injury, clearing the way for Grant to get some nice opportunity, especially early in the season. There's no reason to target him early, but if you find yourself desperate for a point guard after the names are gone, Grant should at least get plenty of minutes over the first month of the season.
