Player News - Bulls

Date: Team: Pos:

Chandler Hutchison scored nine points (4-of-7 FG) with a season-high nine rebounds, one steal, and one 3-pointer in 18 minutes against the Mavs on Monday.

Hutchison has shown flashes of why the Bulls picked him with their second pick in the first round in this year's draft, but he's still not worth owning most leagues just yet.
Nov 13 - 12:49 AM

Justin Holiday scored 14 points (5-of-9 FG) with three rebounds, two steals, and three 3-pointers in 36 minutes against the Mavericks on Monday.

Holiday isn't scoring a lot, but he's still seeing a ton of minutes. He's averaging 38.4 minutes over his last five games. In that same time, he's putting up 2.4 steals and 2.4 triples, putting him on the radar in deep leagues.
Nov 13 - 12:11 AM

Antonio Blakeney scored 9 points with one rebound, one steal, and one 3-pointer in 19 minutes on Monday against Dallas.

Blakeney was on a hot streak this time last week, but has cooled off big time. He's not worth owning in most leagues right now.
Nov 13 - 12:08 AM

Wendell Carter Jr. scored seven points (3-of-9 FG, 0-of-3 3PT) with 10 rebounds, one assist, one steal, and two blocks in 27 minutes against Dallas on Monday.

Carter Jr. failed to score in double-digits for the first time in nine games. He's averaging a double-double over his last five games, with 12.8 points and 10.4 rebounds, while also adding 2.8 blocks. His percentages are good, too. The rookie is off to a great start in what looks to be a very productive career.
Nov 13 - 12:03 AM

Ryan Arcidiacono scored nine points (3-of-9 FG, 2-of-7 3PT, 1-of-2 FT) with five rebounds, six assists, one block, and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes against Dallas on Monday.

Arcidiacono started again and produced a nice line on Monday. He should continue to start with Kris Dunn out and is worth a look in deep leagues.
Nov 12 - 11:58 PM

Jabari Parker scored 16 points (6-of-17 FG, 0-of-4 3PT, 4-of-4 FT) with six rebounds and two assists in 30 minutes against Dallas on Monday.

Parker has picked it up of late, averaging 15.8 points and 7.0 rebounds over his last five games. He's contributing nothing outside of points and boards, making him tough to own in shallow leagues. He should continue to see ample playing time with Bobby Portis and Lauri Markkanen out. Sell high if you can.
Nov 12 - 11:55 PM

Zach LaVine scored 26 points (8-of-23 FG, 0-of-6 3PT, 10-of-11 FT) with five rebounds, five assists, and four steals in 41 minutes against the Mavs on Monday.

LaVine is now averaging 26.8 points, 5.2 rebounds, 4.4 assists, and 2.0 steals over his last five outings. He's having a monster season so far and coach Fred Hoiberg has called him the team's "go-to-guy." Even when he's off from deep, he's still able to score because of how often he's going to the free throw line. The efficiency will be inconsistent, but everything else will be there on a nightly basis.
Nov 12 - 11:50 PM

Lauri Markkanen (elbow) is still 2-4 weeks away from a return.

He's been doing a lot of conditioning but he's still not shooting from long-range and is still experiencing pain in his elbow. Just like last season when the Bulls tanked their season away, they are going to bring him back very slowly. Based on this timetable, fantasy owners would be lucky to see him on the court before December.
Nov 12 - 6:35 PM

Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg called Zach LaVine his "go-to-guy" and said he's in a "great rhythm" on the offensive end.

"He’s really improved in the area of attacking the basket," Hoiberg said. "You can see his free throw numbers are up, his finishing is better at the rim, he’s not settling for as many shots as he did a year ago and I think a lot of that has to do with the confidence that he has with his health." LaVine is attempting over 20 shots per game with 7.5 free throws, hitting each at a career-best rate (45.6% from the field and 85.7% from the line). He has also done a good job getting his teammates involved with a career-high 3.9 assists. The Bulls took a lot of heat for the amount of money they spent to retain him, but he's proving the doubters wrong so far.

Shaq Harrison played 18 minutes off the bench on Saturday, and will likely play a similar role on Monday against Dallas.

Harrison has leapfrogged Cam Payne in the rotation, giving him some super deep league appeal.
Nov 11 - 1:35 PM

Cameron Payne was a DNP-CD on Saturday against the Cavs and is likely to suffer a similar fate on Monday against the Mavs.

Coach Fred Hoiberg plans to start Ryan Arcidiacono and use Shaq Harrison off the bench again. Payne isn't worth owning right now.
Nov 11 - 1:33 PM

Ryan Arcidiacono will start again for the Bulls on Monday against Dallas.

Coach Fred Hoiberg plans to use the same point guard rotation from Saturday again on Monday, with Arcidiacono starting and Shaq Harrison coming off the bench. Cameron Payne is out of the rotation due to his poor play, making Arcidiacono a worthwhile add in deep leagues.
Nov 11 - 1:26 PM

Zach LaVine scored 24 points with eight rebounds five assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 39 minutes against the Cavs during a 99-98 win on Saturday.

He did struggle from the field with a 9-of-22 shooting line, but he did only turn it over once. LaVine has scored 20 points in each of his 13 games this season and his last game last year for a career-high 14 consecutive games with 20-plus points. As expected, his efficiency has dropped from upper 60s TS%, but LaVine's going to be among the top scorers in the Eastern Conference.
Nov 10 - 11:00 PM

Wendell Carter Jr. scored 15 points with five rebounds, one assist and three blocks in 25 minutes against the Cavs on Saturday.

He'll have a bad game some day, right? All seven of his last seven have been useful stat lines, averaging 15.9 points, 9.3 boards, 2.7 dimes, 1.1 steals, 2.3 blocks and 0.6 treys on a 52/44/82 shooting line. Carter Jr. has the look of a guy who will be an early-round producer in fantasy leagues for a long time.
Nov 10 - 10:54 PM

Ryan Arcidiacono played well in starting unit against the Cavs on Saturday, scoring 15 points with four rebounds, two assists and three 3-pointers in 30 minutes.

His defense wasn't great, but the Bulls got the win. Arcidiacono has played well when called upon for basically the whole year, so he should be able to hold the job for the next few weeks while Kris Dunn (knee) is out. He's worth a look in a deeper league.
