Jerian Grant    G  Bulls

 

 

Jerian Grant said he is expecting to start in Game 4 on Sunday. He probably doesn't deserve it after a brutal Game 3, scoring six points with four turnovers and terrible defense. Coach Fred Hoiberg said he still has some confidence in Grant and that he is still evaluating his options. Grant will be a risky DFS play regardless.

Rajon Rondo    G  Bulls

 

 

Rajon Rondo (thumb) said he is expecting to miss "a couple weeks." "I can't even use a fork with my thumb," Rondo said. In other words, he won't be playing in this series. It's hard to believe a player who was a DNP-CD earlier this season could be so irreplaceable, but the Bulls got almost nothing out of their point guard spots. Coach Fred Hoiberg said "we'll see" about his point guard, but fantasy owners will have a very tough time trusting Jerian Grant or Michael Carter-Williams.

Dwyane Wade    G  Bulls

 

 

Dwyane Wade scored a team-high 18 points during a 104-87 loss in Chicago on Friday, adding one rebound, three assists and two blocks in 33 minutes. The Bulls offense was a complete disaster, especially in the third quarter. They couldn't get a single assist in the third and also had just one dime in the first quarter. Wade was really the only one to keep the Bulls in it early with 10 of the Bulls' first 23 points, but he fizzled out after that. He'll have more ball handling responsibility going forward with Rajon Rondo (wrist, thumb) out, so he'll offer a nice upside on a given night. The Bulls will look to keep their homecourt advantage in Game 4 on Sunday.

Jimmy Butler    G/F  Bulls

 

 

Jimmy Butler made just 7-of-21 from the field for his 14 points against the Celtics on Friday, adding seven rebounds, no assists, one steal, one block and one turnover in 39 minutes. The Celtics made it very tough on Jimmy today. Only eight of his shots came inside of the paint, so a ton of credit goes to Avery Bradley here for keeping Jimmy in check to limit defensive breakdowns. Also, Butler did not go to the line in this game, so take that for data. The Bulls will have to come up with some more inventive ways to get Jimmy some better looks, but he absolutely should fare better in Game 4 on Sunday.

Michael Carter-Williams    G  Bulls

 

 

Michael Carter-Williams scored two points with three rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and three turnovers in 23 minutes against the Celtics on Friday. The Bulls missed Rajon Rondo (thumb, wrist) in a big way. Surprisingly, they didn't go with too many no-PG combos until late in the game, but that may change considering how much MCW and Jerian Grant held them back. Plus, coach Fred Hoiberg even played Carter-Williams and Grant next to each other on occasion. MCW probably shouldn't play more than 20 minutes.

Jerian Grant    G  Bulls

 

 

Jerian Grant scored six points with one rebound, one steal and four turnovers in 15 minutes during a start against the Celtics on Friday night. Yeah, not great. He made mistakes all game and he was almost unplayable I'm the second half. Considering how much he struggled in this game, Grant may not get another chance to start. Although, Michael Carter-Williams was not very good either. Rajon Rondo is out indefinitely.
