Robin Lopez will again be a healthy scratch for Saturday's game vs. Minnesota.
Lopez was benched on Thursday as well, as the Bulls are clearly committed to playing their youngsters. It appears that Cristiano Felicio, Lauri Markkanen, Bobby Portis and Noah Vonleh will divvy up the minutes up front going forward. Lopez can now be dropped in standard-sized leagues.

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.

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.

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.
Feb 20 - 5:36 PM

Robin Lopez said he realizes that his role with the Bulls also includes "off-the-court things."

"We’ve had a great vibe and work ethic for most of this season," Lopez said. With the Bulls headed towards a youth movement, Lopez is fully expected to see his playing time drop. Chances are Lopez is one of the worst players on your team already, so most owners may just want to drop him now.

Robin Lopez was good for 19 points on 8-of-11 shooting in Friday's 114-113 win against the Timberwolves.

Lopez struggled at the free-throw line, going just 3-of-7, and he turned it over four times over 28 minutes. He added three rebounds and a blocked shot, too. The 19 points were his most in seven games, and just his second time in double digits during the span. He'll work through his struggles, and at least he has the peace of mind that he won't be on the move anymore.

Robin Lopez was ejected from Monday's game vs. the Kings with 4:21 left in the second quarter.

He picked up a couple technicals for arguing with the refs and his teammates had to hold him back right after they tossed him. He finished with two points, one assist and one rebound in 13 minutes. Bobby Portis and Cristiano Felicio will hold down the fort at center for the rest of the evening.
Feb 5 - 11:12 PM

Trade talks involving Robin Lopez "have intensified," according to K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune.

Every veteran on the Bulls is fair game for trade talk, so this isn't the least bit surprising. No specific teams have been linked to Lopez, who brushed off the chatter. "Trades are part of the business," Lopez said. "Guys are used to it." The Bulls will reportedly waive Tony Allen if he's not traded, and Jameer Nelson's future with the franchise is iffy at best. It should be an eventful week for Chicago.
Feb 4 - 8:44 PM

Robin Lopez disappeared on Wednesday with two points on 1-of-6 shooting, six rebounds, one steal and one block in 19 minutes.

None of Chicago's starters logged more than 26 minutes tonight, and at least RoLo chipped in some boards and defensive stats. He was coming off consecutive games with 20+ points and should bounce back vs. his brother and the Lakers on Friday. If nothing else, the Bulls have incentive to showcase him as the trade deadline approaches.
Jan 24 - 10:45 PM

Robin Lopez hit 10-of-16 shots for 22 points, four rebounds, three assists and a block in 39 minutes of Monday's overtime loss to the Pelicans.

He tied his season high in scoring tonight, but didn't do a lot more than make shots and turnovers (he had five of them). Lopez has been scoring, hitting double digits in six straight games, but hasn't had more than seven rebounds and two blocks in any of his January games. He's nothing more than a low-end fantasy center, but that could change if he stays hot, or starts rebounding and blocking.
Jan 22 - 11:21 PM

Robin Lopez scored 12 points on 6-of-10 shooting vs. Detroit on Saturday, adding three rebounds, two assists and one block in 29 minutes.

All of his points came within the first 10 minutes of the game -- in fact, he attempted only two shots in the final three quarters tonight. RoLo's usage rate of 20.2% this season is a career-high but his rebound and block rates are way down, and as a result he's barely holding value in 12-team leagues.
Jan 13 - 11:41 PM

Robin Lopez scored 20 points with seven rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 41 minutes against the Knicks on Wednesday.

He was on the opposite end of the spectrum from his season-low 15 minutes on Monday as he logged his third game over 40 minutes this season. Lopez hasn't been dominant by any stretch, but he continues be a low-end hold in deeper 12-team formats.
Jan 10 - 10:34 PM

Robin Lopez was a non-factor vs. Houston on Monday, playing 15 minutes to finish with two points, one rebound, one assist and one block.

RoLo missed all four of his field goal attempts and the Bulls trailed by 13 points after one quarter, at which point coach Fred Hoiberg shifted to smaller lineups -- Bobby Portis played alongside Lauri Markkenen for long stretches. This snaps a streak of eight consecutive games with double-digit points for RoLo, but he's an obvious cut candidate -- in his previous 10 games, the Bulls' starting center is averaging 10.8 points, 3.3 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 0.8 blocks and 0.2 steals.
Jan 8 - 11:30 PM

Robin Lopez had 15 points, six rebounds, five assists and three blocks in a losing effort vs. Portland on Monday.

Lopez made 6-of-16 field goals and 3-of-4 free throws in 36 minutes, and coach Fred Hoiberg said he stuck with him ahead of Nikola Mirotic to counter the size of Jusuf Nurkic. He played the final 12:34 tonight, including the entirety of overtime, and this marks RoLo's highest playing time since Dec. 13. He's likely to fall into the mid-20s again on Wednesday, but games like this are the reason he's clung to relevance in 12-team leagues.
