Justin Holiday    G/F  Bulls

 

 

Justin Holiday will remain in the rotation on Thursday vs. the 76ers. The Bulls are benching him along with Robin Lopez, but unlike Lopez, Holiday is still expected to see some backup minutes on the wing. He's a drop candidate, but feel free to see what the rotation looks like tonight before making any roster moves.

Robin Lopez    C  Bulls

 

 

Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg confirmed that Robin Lopez will be a healthy scratch on Thursday vs. the 76ers. We speculated earlier that Lopez wouldn't play at all, but now we have confirmation. He's safe to drop in fantasy leagues and there is no telling when or if he will be back in the rotation later on. Cristiano Felicio and Lauri Markkanen will start with Bobby Portis and Noah Vonleh backing them up.

Justin Holiday    G/F  Bulls

 

 

Justin Holiday will come off the bench on Thursday vs. the 76ers. This was confirmed by executive vice president John Paxson. David Nwaba will enter the starting lineup in Holiday's place and it's possible that he falls completely out of the rotation for the time being. He can be cut in most leagues, though it's not a bad idea to see how Thursday's game goes first.

Robin Lopez    C  Bulls

 

 

Robin Lopez will come off the bench on Thursday vs. the 76ers. The Bulls are embracing the youth movement and will move Cristiano Felicio into the starting five. Lopez can be dropped in standard leagues and may even fall completely out of the rotation if the Bulls decide to give Bobby Portis the backup center minutes. We'll find out soon enough.

Zach LaVine    G  Bulls

 

 

John Paxson said he'll talk to the Bulls' medical staff about whether or not Zach LaVine can be cleared for back-to-back sets this season. The Bulls do have five more back-to-back sets this season, so it would be nice if owners wouldn't have to concern themselves with LaVine missing random games during the fantasy playoffs. LaVine was ballin' in the five games headed into the All-Star break with averages of 22.4 points, 5.2 boards, 2.6 dimes, 2.2 triples, 1.2 steals and just 1.4 turnovers per game, so he should have a strong finish to the year.

Kris Dunn    G  Bulls

 

 

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.

Jerian Grant    G  Bulls

 

 

Jerian Grant will not be a part of the Bulls rotation going forward. Bulls executive VP John Paxson made it clear that Chicago will be committed to playing their young players over the second of the season. As part of this plan, Cameron Payne (foot), who has been cleared to return, will replace Grant as Kris Dunn's primary backup at point guard. Grant can be dropped in all fantasy formats.

Cameron Payne    G  Bulls

 

 

Bulls executive VP John Paxson said that Cameron Payne (foot) will serve as the Bulls primary backup point guard over the second half of the season. Jerian Grant had been backing up Kris Dunn, but Grant will no longer be a part of the rotation. Payne has yet to play this season after undergoing foot surgery back in September but has been cleared. He's been a disappointment since OKC spent a lottery pick (14th overall) on him back in 2015. For his career, he is shooting an atrocious 37.8 percent from the field. However, the Bulls traded Taj Gibson, Doug McDermott and a 2018 2nd round draft pick to acquire Payne last season, so they will want to get a good look at him. However, his fantasy value is limited playing behind Dunn.

Justin Holiday    G/F  Bulls

 

 

Justin Holiday is expected to come off the bench for Thursday's game against the 76ers. David Nwaba will get the start ahead of him, but Bulls' VP John Paxson also said that he's looking to play his young guys significant minutes, so Holiday should still be able to minutes in the mid-20s while working with the second unit. Still, his value figures to take a hit with the move to the bench, so he's a cut-candidate in shallower leagues.

Robin Lopez    C  Bulls

 

 

Robin Lopez is expected to come off the bench Thursday vs. the 76ers. He's being replaced by Cristiano Felicio in the starting five, and Bulls' VP John Paxson hinted that this will be a lasting post-break change. Lopez hasn't been worth owning for a month now, and his value won't get any better when he's working with the second unit. He can be sent back to the wire in most leagues with this report.
