Robin Lopez    C  Bulls

 

 

Lopez collected 16 points, shooting 8-of-20 from the field while adding five assists, four rebounds, and three blocks in 36 minutes during Wednesday's 130-100 victory over the Jazz. The Bulls won their fourth consecutive game with Lopez playing a big role in the victory. He has been quietly consistent this season, scoring in double-figures in all but five games. He has a relatively low ceiling, but seems likely to play solid minutes on a nightly basis while putting up some nice value. If he is sitting around on your waiver wire, he is worth a look if you are in need of a low-risk big man.

Kris Dunn    PG  Bulls

 

 

Dunn had 13 points (6-18 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), eight assists, seven rebounds and four assists in 33 minutes during Wednesday's 103-100 victory over Utah. Dunn has now scored in double figures in six straight games, adding another 13 points in the victory. He continues to be a pleasant surprise for owners, despite the struggles with his efficiency. He is averaging two steals per game and is seeing plenty of minutes. If you are looking to offload him, now could be a good time, given Zach LaVine will be returning soon.

Nikola Mirotic    PF  Bulls

 

 

Mirtoic finished with 29 points (11-18 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), nine rebounds and two steals in 35 minutes during Wednesday's 103-100 victory over the Jazz. Mirotic stayed hot Wednesday, leading the team with 29 points on just 18 shot attempts. He received another start with Lauri Markkanen (back) a late scratching. He has looked very good since returning and is averaging 19.5 points per game while adding four three-pointers. Markkanen sounds like he could return for the next game which will likely shift Mirotic back to the bench. He should still be able to play significant minutes based on his recent form, and should now be owned in most league formats.

Bobby Portis    F  Bulls

 

 

Bobby Portis notched nine points, eight rebounds, three assists and one 3-pointer in 22 minutes off the Bulls' bench on Wednesday. Nikola Mirotic's recent return has hampered Portis, but he got a reprieve tonight with Lauri Markkanen (back) missing another game. For what it's worth, coach Fred Hoiberg sounds all-in on the unlikely pairing of Mirotic and Portis. "I love the chemistry," Hoiberg said. "It gives us two front-line guys out there on the floor. We'll continue to put that lineup on the floor." Once Markkanen is healthy, however, there might not be enough minutes for Portis to help standard-league owners.

Nikola Mirotic    F  Bulls

 

 

Nikola Mirotic made another fill-in start during Wednesday's win vs. the Jazz, erupting for a team-high 29 points on 11-of-18 shooting with nine boards, three 3-pointers and two steals. The Bulls are 4-0 since Mirotic returned on Dec. 8 and they no longer have the worst record in the NBA (that would be the Hawks). He logged 35 minutes tonight, the result of another late scratch for Lauri Markkanen (back). The Bulls' prized rookie was a game-time decision tonight, so this could be his final DNP, but owners should keep an eye on him heading into Friday's game in Milwaukee. If he sits out again, Mirotic should be poised for another big game.

David Nwaba    G/F  Bulls

 

 

David Nwaba came off Chicago's bench for three points, eight rebounds and one assist during Wednesday's home win vs. the Jazz. Nwaba suggested recently that he's not pining for a starting job with the Bulls. "I like coming off the bench to bring energy ... I take pride in that," he said. "I don't have the most confidence in my shot. I do have the confidence to get to the basket ... I know I can create a lot of plays." He had just one assist tonight, with a usage rate in the single-digits, but he's still clinging to low-end value over the past few weeks.

Kris Dunn    G  Bulls

 

 

Kris Dunn went 6-of-18 from the field to finish Wednesday's 103-100 home victory with 13 points, eight assists, seven rebounds, four steals and two turnovers in 34 minutes. Dunn credited his team's recent success to improved chemistry. "Guys are starting to learn how each other plays," he said. "I think we’re feeding off each other. We’re playing with more toughness and more grit." Head coach Fred Hoiberg praised Dunn for staying aggressive offensively down the stretch, despite some tough missed shots, and he's put a stranglehold on the starting PG job.

Robin Lopez    C  Bulls

 

 

The Bulls extended their win streak to four games on Wednesday, aided by Robin Lopez's 16 points, five assists, four rebounds and three blocks in 36 minutes. The assists were a season-high and the blocks tied a season-high -- the only downside is that Lopez shot 8-of-20 from the field tonight. His rebounds have been disappointing for a starting center, at 5.6 per game, but he's contributing just enough with blocks (0.8) and solid percentages (52.6% FGs, 75.5% FTs) to be worth holding in typical leagues.

Nikola Mirotic    PF  Bulls

 

 

Mirotic will get the start in Wednesday's matchup with the Jazz after Lauri Markkanen was a last minute scratch from the starting lineup. Mirotic will shift back to the starting lineup Wednesday after Lauri Markkanen was ruled out just before gametime. Mirotic was very successful in the starting lineup on Monday, recording 24 points and eight rebounds in 32 minutes.

Lauri Markkanen    PF  Bulls

 

 

Updating a previous report, Markkanen (back) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Jazz. The Bulls recently announced that Markkanen would play and start at power forward, though he must have dealt with some last second discomfort and is now a late scratch. With Markkanen out, Nikola Mirotic will pick up the start and becomes an intriguing fantasy play after posting 24 points and eight rebounds across 32 minutes on Monday. Markkanen's next opportunity to play will be Friday against the Bucks.
