Bulls executive VP John Paxson said that Kris Dunn (concussion) would no longer be on a minutes limit.
Dunn missed nearly a month of action after suffering a concussion back on January 17th, but returned for the Bulls final game before the break. He was limited to 20 minutes in that contest but has avoided any setbacks. Paxson did say that although the Bulls won't place Dunn on a minutes restriction, they will "be smart" in his first few games back. Feb 20 - 5:55 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Tue, Oct 10, 2017 10:25:00 PM

Jerian Grant had 11 points, six rebounds, five assists, three 3-pointers and three turnovers during Sunday's 108-95 loss to the Pelicans.

Grant is likely to begin the season as Chicago's starting PG, given the absence of Kris Dunn (finger), which is reason enough to add him in deeper formats. Ryan Arciadiacano was the nominal backup PG tonight, although it was Denzel Valentine who did most of the second-unit playmaking.
Sun, Oct 8, 2017 09:53:00 PM

Jerian Grant, Justin Holiday, Paul Zipser, Nikola Mirotic and Robin Lopez will be in the starting lineup for Sunday's preseason matchup with the Pelicans.

Kris Dunn is dealing with a dislocated finger and unlikely to be ready for the start of the season, so Grant should open the year as Chicago's starting point guard. However, he didn't do much as a starter last season, and he could be headed for a timeshare situation once Dunn is back in action, making him an unattractive target in most settings despite the starter designation.
Sun, Oct 8, 2017 05:25:00 PM

Jerian Grant will start for the Bulls on Friday vs. the Bucks.

Coach Fred Hoiberg intimated last week that Grant and Kris Dunn would alternate starts at point guard, but Dunn came off the bench in each of the first two preseason games and Grant gets another start on Wednesday. It appears these two will be locked in a fairly even timeshare early in the season. This is unappealing from a fantasy perspective.
Fri, Oct 6, 2017 12:39:00 PM

Jerian Grant had 11 points, nine assists, a steal and two 3-pointers in 20 minutes in a start at point guard for the Bulls in Tuesday’s preseason win.

Kris Dunn played 22 minutes off the bench for 11 points, three assists, two steals and a 3-pointer on 5-of-8 shooting. The two are battling for the starting point guard job in Chicago, but a true timeshare is expected, making both of them tough to draft right now. Dunn will get his chance to start in Wednesday's game vs. the Mavericks.

Cameron Payne (right foot surgery) will reportedly be sidelined until late November.

This is the same foot Payne broke twice last season, eventually having surgery which included the insertion of "a big ol' screw," in his words. This is a major blow for Chicago's already-thin backcourt, where Kris Dunn and Jerian Grant are projected to battle for PG minutes to begin the season. Hopefully this latest surgery will help Payne put his foot woes behind him for good.
