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.

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 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.

Jonathan Isaac (ankle) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Knicks.

He could, however, suit up for Orlando's G-League affiliate this weekend, which suggests he's close. The Magic are going to play it very safe with Isaac this season given how much of an issue that ankle injury has been for him, and it's tough to see him carving out much value while Aaron Gordon and Mario Hezonja are healthy.
Feb 20 - 5:53 PM

Coach Frank Vogel said that Aaron Gordon (hip) is "on track" to play Thursday vs. the Knicks.

This was somewhat expected, but it's still very welcome news for Gordon owners. Gordon missed nine consecutive contests prior to the All-Star break, and was forced to withdraw from the Slam Dunk contest. Gordon has only been able to suit up for 39 games thus far this season, but he's averaging career highs in points (18.4), rebounds (8.3), 3-pointers (2.0), and minutes (34.0).

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.
Feb 20 - 5:47 PM

Nikola Vucevic (hand) and Aaron Gordon (hip) are "on track" to play Thursday vs. the Knicks.

Barring a setback, Vucevic will be back out there on Thursday following a two-month layoff, which will translate to Bismack Biyombo heading back to the second unit. Mario Hezonja has played really well in Gordon's absence, but his value figures to take a bit of a hit with AG back in action. Vucevic was flirting with top-15 value prior to going down, so he absolutely needs to be owned in all leagues at this point.

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.
