Kris Dunn (left MCL sprain) has progressed to doing some straight-ahead running.
Today marks Week-4 of Dunn's 4-6 week timetable and considering he's still not taking contact or going through hard cuts, it's obvious that he'll be closer to the six-week mark; which is what we expected. The Bulls are sitting on a 4-13 record, so they're in no rush to bring Dunn back, and it'll be Ryan Arcidiacono and Shaquille Harrison splitting the majority of his minutes while he's out.

Cameron Payne finished Wednesday's loss to Denver with five points, two assists and five turnovers in 25 minutes.

Payne shot 2-of-8 from the field (1-of-3 from deep) and he didn't get to the free-throw line. Ryan Arcidiacono logged more minutes (30) and posted three points, seven assists, three steals and two rebounds, and he looks like a more confident table-setter for the Bulls' offense until Kris Dunn (knee) is healthy. Some injuries just don't yield a winner in fantasy, and we're not eager to add Payne or Arcidiacono.

Fred Hoiberg said he'll be asking Zach LaVine to spend some more time running the offense while Kris Dunn (knee) is out.

"Based on where we are right now, we’re going to have to have him facilitate and lead the break," said Hoiberg when asked if LaVine will see some time at point guard over the next 4-6 weeks with Dunn unavailable. Cameron Payne will likely be a starter over the next month, but he'll be splitting minutes with the other four PGs on the roster, and isn't the most alluring add in most settings. LaVine, on the other hand, is going to be a monster.
Oct 24 - 2:42 PM

Bobby Portis will be in the starting lineup for Thursday's game against the 76ers.

Fred Hoiberg will go with the same starting five he used in Chicago's preseason finale, featuring Kris Dunn, Zach LaVine, Justin Holiday, Portis and Wendell Carter Jr. Jabari Parker will be operating in a sixth man role with the second unit, but the PF rotation could get very messy once Lauri Markkanen (elbow) gets back.
Oct 17 - 12:27 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.
