Robin Lopez said he's been working on his 3-pointers and it's not "game ready" yet.

If Brook [Lopez] can do it, I definitely can," Lopez said. Robin has yet to make a 3-pointer in his entire NBA career with just five attempts. He's actually been very good on his shots from beyond 20 feet this season, making 55.0 percent of his 20 attempts. Lopez has only turned in 12th-round value on the season, so he's only a borderline hold.

Robin Lopez scored a season-high 21 points to go along with five rebounds and a block on 10-of-15 shooting in Tuesday's 99-98 loss to the Mavericks.

Ro-Lo has been pretty quiet this season with the Bulls, but broke out of a funk tonight. Some more rebounds and blocks would have been nice, but owners will take this one. It probably helped that he was facing a Mavs' team starting ancient forward Dirk Nowitzki at center, so we'll have to see if Ro-Lo can do it again on Friday against Dwight Howard and the Hawks, which will be a tougher test.

Robin Lopez had another strong game on Sunday with 12 points, seven boards, two assists and three blocks in 37 minutes.

Lopez helped his team earn a tough 108-104 win in Memphis. The Bulls scored a season-low 14 points in the first quarter tonight, but they recovered with a season-high 38 points in the second quarter. The Jekyll and Hyde performance didn't continue in the second half, during which they scored 56 points, and the Bulls' win leaves them just ahead of Charlotte for the No. 8 seed.

Robin Lopez played 27 minutes with six points, 10 rebounds, three assists and two blocks against the Pelicans on Saturday.

The Bulls absolutely dominated on the glass. Lopez had nine of the 21 offensive boards and the Bulls had a 21-board advantage overall. We've seen Ro-Lo lose some late minutes to Cris Felicio and that happened again, but this was a very encouraging game. He gets another great matchup for minutes against the Grizzles on Sunday.
Jan 14 - 8:38 PM

Robin Lopez scored 12 points with 10 rebounds, one assist and one block in 31 minutes against the Bucks on Saturday.

Not that anyone should've been worried after a 19-minute Friday, but this should ease most concerns. Lopez hasn't quite lived up to the billing so far and is holding as just a low-end guy in standard leagues.

Robin Lopez scored two points with two rebounds, one assist and one block in 19 minutes against the Pacers.

He did not close this game out and didn't get any shots from the field. Lopez was coming off two games with 31.5 minutes per, so this was a big surprise. Cris Felicio was the center down the stretch and really played well, but we're not ready to say Felicio is going to usurp RoLo's run. He's still a hold for now.

Robin Lopez had a tough night vs. San Antonio, finishing with 10 points, four boards, one assist and four turnovers in just 19 minutes.

The Spurs attacked RoLo in the pick-and-roll tonight and he finished with a +/- rating of -26, so coach Fred Hoiberg turned away from him down the stretch. He's been a borderline fantasy value over the past month, thanks to 7.2 boards, 2.1 blocks and 50.5 percent shooting. Despite his lackluster play, he has enough upside to hold in most formats.

Robin Lopez will not be suspended for his flagrant 2 on Friday.

It's good news for the Bulls after Ro-Lo had a hard elbow to Marvin Williams, causing an ejection. Lopez is playing 28.7 minutes per game on the year, but it's worth mentioning he's played 33.0 minutes per outing in games decided by five points or fewer. Lopez has been somewhat disappointing with 10th-round value, but he's still a hold in standard leagues.

Robin Lopez was ejected for a flagrant 2 foul against the Hornets on Friday night.

It's the fifth ejection of his career. Lopez was given the flagrant 2 for an elbow to Marvin Williams, so he could be facing a suspension for that. He turned in a typical line of six points, nine rebounds, one assist and two blocks in 33 minutes. Lopez is a hold in standard leagues.
Fri, Dec 23, 2016 09:22:00 PM

Robin Lopez hit 3-of-6 shots for six points, six rebounds, two assists and a block in Thursday's 108-97 loss to the Bucks.

He had a bit of a tasty matchup against John Henson and Greg Monroe, but never got it going tonight. In fact, the Bulls never really got it going, as they fell into a 64-45 halftime hole from which they never recovered. RoLo is hit-or-miss in the scoring column, but can generally be counted on for boards and blocks, with the occasional big scoring night.

Robin Lopez blocked four shots in Monday's loss to the Wolves, adding 14 points and five rebounds in 33 minutes.

Ro-Lo hit 7-of-9 shots from the field and he did a great job slowing down Karl-Anthony Towns, limiting him to 16 points on 6-of-21 shooting -- Towns was averaging 21.6 points per game prior to Tuesday. He's now averaging 2.0 blocks per game on the season, but he's only providing 9.8 points, 7.8 rebounds and 0.8 assists. He's obviously worth owning in standard leagues and should start to trend up a bit.

Robin Lopez set a career high with eight blocked shots on Wednesday, adding 10 points on 4-of-12 shooting with nine rebounds, one assist and one steal in 32 minutes.

RoLo had six blocks vs. the Nuggets last Tuesday, so the Bulls' defensive scheme is clearly suiting him well. The Lakers as a team had been blocked just 4.7 times per game prior to this evening, the seventh-lowest mark in the league, which makes his block party even more impressive. Lopez has scored double-digit points in nine straight games and should obviously be owned in all leagues.

Robin Lopez had 12 points, eight rebounds, a steal and a season-high six blocks in 35 minutes of Tuesday's tough loss to the Nuggets.

After a dreadful start to the season, Ro-Lo is Ro-lling, averaging 11.4 points, 9.6 rebounds and 2.2 blocks over his last five games. He's scored in double figures in seven straight games and has double-doubled in four of them. The buy-low window is officially closed after this one.

Robin Lopez hit just 5-of-16 shots, but still finished with 10 points, 12 rebounds and two blocks in 38 minutes of Thursday's win in Utah.

After failing to double-double in his first nine games, he's now done it in three straight, and just missed it being four straight by one rebound. He's played at least 38 minutes in three of his last four games and is averaging 11 points, 10 rebounds and 1.2 blocks over his last five. The problem is his shooting, which is at 38 percent over that stretch, but if he keeps double-doubling and racking up monster minutes, we suspect the shots will start falling now that is slow start to the season is behind him.
