Robert Covington scored eight points with three rebounds, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers in 30 minutes against the Bulls on Thursday.

He's not having his best stretch and a cold spell is nothing new for Lord RoCo. In his last 12 games, he's made just 34.5 percent from the field with averages of 9.9 points, 4.6 boards, 1.3 assists, 1.0 steals, 0.7 blocks and 1.7 treys. He still continues to see minutes in the 30s most nights because of his defense, but it'll be interesting to see what happens when the 76ers have to play from behind because Marco Belinelli could steal run. Regardless, RoCo still has to be owned in all leagues.

Bobby Portis went berserk off the bench against the 76ers on Thursday, scoring a career-high 38 points with eight rebounds, two assists and six 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

Those 3-pointers were a career-high and he only turned the ball over one time while taking a whopping 26 shots from the field. Portis is likely going to stay on the bench for the foreseeable future, but that's OK as this gem ranks second for points off the bench in a single game behind 6MOY favorite Lou Williams (40, twice). Portis needs to be owned in all leagues.
Feb 22 - 10:48 PM

Zach LaVine scored 23 points with three rebounds, four assists and five 3-pointers in 31 minutes against the 76ers on Thursday.

He's looked great in all aspects of scoring with his season-high triples in this game and a career-high 10 free throws back on Feb. 9. The Bulls have not decided if LaVine will be cleared for back-to-back sets, but he is certainly playing like a guy that shouldn't have limitations right now. Coach Fred Hoiberg already confirmed this lineup will start again on Saturday.
Feb 22 - 10:45 PM

Cameron Payne scored seven points with two rebounds, seven assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 20 minutes against the 76ers on Thursday.

He said he wanted to go 25-0 the rest of the way, but that won't be happening after an epic collapse in the final minute -- Payne wasn't on the floor for that, though. Payne is going to continue to see around 20 minutes behind Kris Dunn, and this was a solid season debut for him on the whole. He's still more of a stream in deep leagues.
Feb 22 - 10:43 PM

Kris Dunn made 2-of-11 from the field for five points with four rebounds, five assists and two steals in 28 minutes against the 76ers on Thursday.

He had some defensive issues against Ben Simmons and he did make just 2-of-10 from two-point range. Dunn is not going to be on a minutes limit going forward and chances are Cameron Payne won't eat into his playing time too much. Dunn should still be viewed as a must-start player in standard leagues.
Feb 22 - 10:42 PM

David Nwaba scored a career-high 21 points during a start with nine rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block, three 3-pointers and six fouls in 33 minutes against the 76ers on Thursday.

Not a bad line before fouling out. Nwaba also played his usual hard-nosed defense and he helped set the tempo for the Bulls in transition. We've seen him heat up before and coach Fred Hoiberg trusts him against top-notch perimeter players, so the minutes should be there for him. We don't know if Justin Holiday is going to be a DNP-CD the rest of the way, so Nwaba is more of a look in standard leagues.
Feb 22 - 10:38 PM

Noah Vonleh scored three points with seven rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer in 17 minutes against the 76ers on Thursday.

The minutes are probably going to be there for Vonleh and the Bulls second unit was effective. Even if Robin Lopez continues to sit, Vonleh is still likely going to be the fourth big man in this rotation, so he won't offer enough upside.
Feb 22 - 10:37 PM

Cristiano Felicio scored five points in the starting lineup for Robin Lopez (rest), adding three rebounds and one turnover in 12 minutes against the 76ers on Thursday.

Coach Fred Hoiberg said he wanted to see Felicio make simple plays and run the floor, and he came through in that regard. Of course, the star of the show was Bobby Portis, who played mostly center in this close game. Felicio will likely only have deep-league value.
