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.
Jan 29 - 9:57 PM

Robin Lopez scored nine points with eight rebounds, two assists and one block in 29 minutes on Saturday against the Kings.

Lopez is averaging 11.6 points, 6.8 rebounds, 1.6 assists, and 2.0 blocks per game over his last five. He does not produce eye-popping numbers, but has returned decent value to fantasy owners this season. The Bulls face the Magic on Tuesday, which is a good matchup for Lopez, as they are giving up the fifth most rebounds per game with a -2.1 differential. They are also yielding the sixth most fantasy points per game to centers.
Jan 22 - 12:31 AM

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.
Jan 18 - 2:58 PM

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.
Jan 17 - 10:59 PM

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.
Jan 16 - 12:05 AM

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.
Sat, Dec 31, 2016 09:41:00 PM

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.
Fri, Dec 30, 2016 07:05:00 PM

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.
Sun, Dec 25, 2016 08:14:00 PM

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.
