Robin Lopez and Serge Ibaka have been suspended for one game for throwing punches at each other.
This one was coming all along today and Lopez only getting one game is good news. He won't be playing tonight against the Pistons and the Bulls may have to get creative with their center minutes. Cristiano Felicio is questionable to play, so he would be busy if he's able to give it a go. We might see some Bobby Portis at the five.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: If Cristiano Felicio is able to suit up, he'd likely eat up 25-30 minutes of court time in order to deal with Andre Drummond, making him a potential GPP punt play at minimum price. In the event that he sits, both Bobby Portis and Nikola Mirotic could see upticks in playing time, with Joffrey Lauvergne also looming as an option at the 5. Mirotic looks like the best upside play in the group after seeing at least 26 minutes in four of the last five games. Mar 22 - 4:52 PM

Date:

Robin Lopez was ejected from Tuesday's game vs. the Raptors.

He got tangled up with Serge Ibaka and both players started throwing punches, but none of them landed. A suspension is certainly on the table, so look for Cristiano Felicio to benefit if Lopez misses time. RoLo finished with 12 points, four rebounds, three blocks and one assist in 25 minutes.
Mar 21 - 8:56 PM

Robin Lopez scored 14 points with five rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 30 minutes against the Jazz on Saturday.

He went up against Rudy Gobert and lives to tell about it. Lopez is coming off a 25-point Friday, so he heads into next week with some nice momentum. He still only has mid-round upside and is flirting with that recently even with this two strong games, so he's not exactly a strong add. Although, with four games and some favorable matchups this week, he's someone fantasy owners may want to call on.
Mar 19 - 12:22 AM

Robin Lopez scored a season-high 25 points in a loss to the Wizards on Friday.

He was five points shy of his career-high and has only scored 25+ points five times in his career. There are more touches up for grabs in Chicago with Dwayne Wade (elbow) out for the season, so Lopez should get a small bump. He finished 12-of-16 from the field with 12 rebounds, two assists and one block, and with four games on the schedule for the Bulls next week, he's back on the radar as a pickup.
Mar 17 - 10:33 PM

Robin Lopez scored 13 points on 5-of-6 shooting Sunday, to go with three rebounds, three assists, one steal, two blocks and two turnovers in 25 minutes.

Over the past month, Lopez has seen his minutes dip to 26.4 a night, and over that 12 game span he’s only managed to put in averages of 11.5 points, 5.1 boards, 1.1 assists, 1.2 blocks and 1.3 turnovers per game on 44.8 percent shooting, numbers that have him ranking well outside the top-150 in standard 9-cat leagues. Lopez is little more than a deep-league blocks specialist, and there should be higher-upside guys sitting on your wire.
Mar 12 - 6:29 PM

Robin Lopez finished Wednesday's game with 10 points, nine rebounds, two blocks and one assist, hitting 5-of-9 field goals in 36 minutes vs. the Magic.

RoLo has just one double-double since Nov. 20, which is hard to believe for a 7'0" veteran who starts on an every-night basis. The Bulls came in virtually tied with the Pistons in the No. 7/8 spots in the East, and after tonight's ugly loss coach Fred Hoiberg said he might mix up his lineups. Given how many minutes RoLo played tonight, though, his job is probably safe.
Mar 8 - 9:53 PM

Robin Lopez posted 18 points with four rebounds, an assist, a steal and a blocked shot over 34 minutes in Monday's loss against the Pistons.

Lopez has strung together seven straight games of 10 or more points, his second-longest streak of the season. His rebounding totals are down over the past month, averaging just 4.8 over the past 10 games which is well below his season average. However, you can certainly do worse for a low-end big man in standard fantasy formats.
Mar 6 - 11:02 PM

Robin Lopez played well vs. the Clippers on Saturday, scoring 12 points on 6-of-12 shooting.

RoLo shot a combined 10-of-29 from the field in his previous two games, but he was aggressive against DeAndre Jordan and his mid-range shot was falling tonight. He added six rebounds and two assists, but wasn't able to block a shot in 27 minutes. Lopez isn't a sexy fantasy asset, but he gets the job done as a low-end big in standard leagues.
Mar 4 - 11:37 PM

Robin Lopez scored 19 points with six rebounds, one block and no turnovers in 36 minutes against the Suns on Friday.

It looked like Cristiano Felicio was going to push him for minutes, but things are looking up with the Bulls on a three-game winning streak right now. Lopez hasn't really turned heads this season, but he has posted eighth-round value in standard leagues over his last 10. If all the hot adds are gone, he's a fine low-end guy.
Feb 25 - 1:01 AM

Robin Lopez scored eight points on 4-of-12 shooting vs. the Raptors on Tuesday.

He played just 21 minutes compared to 27 for Cristiano Felicio, and he didn't play at all in the fourth quarter. Lopez added six rebound a couple of blocks, but this isn't the first time that he's been benched down the stretch this season. As long as the Bulls keep their eyes on a playoff spot, Lopez's role should be safe as the starter. The emergence of Felicio is a concern, though.
Feb 14 - 11:25 PM

The Bulls are reportedly shopping both Robin Lopez and Doug McDermott in hopes of securing a first-round draft pick.

The Bulls do own their 2017 first-round selection, but it sounds like they'd like to load up on draft picks for what is believed to be a highly talented incoming draft class. The Bulls have reportedly expressed interest in acquiring Jahlil Okafor from Philly, but to this point, Philly has not seemed interested in surrendering one of their draft picks.
Feb 13 - 3:46 PM

Robin Lopez scored 17 points with 10 rebounds, four assists and one steal in 29 minutes against the Warriors on Wednesday.

He's peaking right now over his last five games, averaging 15.2 points, 7.6 boards, 2.0 assists and 1.2 blocks on 57.6 percent from the field. Some of that could be due to Cris Felicio missing time, but Lopez does have eighth-round value over his last 10. He's a low-demand hold in standard leagues.
Feb 9 - 2:19 AM

Robin Lopez scored 17 points on 7-of-12 shooting vs. the Kings on Monday, adding six rebounds, two assists and one steal in 32 minutes.

Lopez's scoring is up and coach Fred Hoiberg said he can tell that the big man is playing with a lot of confidence. "My teammates have done a great job of finding me in really good spots," Lopez said. "I've had a good feel in the past few games. We're doing a good job of sharing the ball right now." Lopez's ceiling is a lot higher with Cristiano Felicio (leg) on the shelf and he played 41 minutes in his previous outing. He's averaging 13.2 points, 6.0 rebounds and 1.2 blocks per game over his last five, and he deserves a lot of credit for slowing down DeMarcus Cousins tonight. Lopez is trending up.
Feb 7 - 1:49 AM

Robin Lopez played 41 minutes in Friday's loss to Houston, scoring seven points with 11 rebounds, two assists and two blocks.

With Cristiano Felicio leaving the game after seven minutes with a leg injury, Lopez saw his highest workload of the season. He hit 3-of-8 from the field and 1-of-2 from the line, but he's looking at a nice short-term bump in value if Felicio misses more time -- Lopez played just 27.6 minutes per game in January with Felicio breathing down his neck. Just keep in mind that the Bulls are off until Monday's game vs. the Kings.
Feb 3 - 11:56 PM

Robin Lopez knocked down 9-of-13 shots to tie his season-high with 21 points on Sunday, adding 10 rebounds, two assists and three blocks without any turnovers in 31 minutes.

This marks RoLo's first double-digit scoring performance in five games, and it's the first time he's blocked multiple shots in six games. He was rolling in mid-January and could be on the upswing again, but he remains a low-end center until his usage and consistency improve.
