Robin Lopez scored 19 points with 10 rebounds, one assist and one block in 43 minutes against the Hornets on Friday.
He was one of three Bulls with a double-double today as Lopez posted just his third on the year. Obviously his 43 minutes were a season high, but Lopez has been trending up heading into this game. However, Nikola Mirotic coming back may affect Lopez because Bobby Portis figures to play almost all center -- RoLo and Portis played together today. Lopez's upside probably isn't high enough to hold in shallower leagues. Dec 9 - 1:24 AM

Robin Lopez scored 20 points and hit 9-of-11 shots and 2-of-3 free throws against the Nuggets on Thursday, adding six rebounds, one assist and one steal.

If you asked fantasy owners if they'd rather have Robin or his brother Brook, you might be surprised at the answers (at least this week). He's been a steady source of low-end value all season and continues to dominate the center minutes with Cristiano Felicio falling completely out of the rotation. Maybe that changes later in the season, but Lopez should be owned everywhere right now.
Nov 30 - 11:43 PM

Robin Lopez scored 14 points on 7-of-11 shots with three rebounds, two assists and one block against the Lakers on Tuesday.

He got the best of his brother Brook tonight (four points on 2-of-10 FGs) and continues to be a solid mid-round fantasy value for his owners. Maybe that changes later in the season when the Bulls speed up the tank, but continue to throw him into your lineups for now.
Nov 22 - 2:04 AM

Robin Lopez bounced back on Sunday with 16 points and 10 rebounds in 31 minutes vs. the Suns, making 6-of-11 FGs and 4-of-6 FTs.

The veteran big man was an uncharacteristic 5-of-16 from the field in his previous two games, with more fouls (seven) than rebounds (five), so it was nice to see him return to form. The Suns' frontcourt isn't formidable defensively, of course, but RoLo gets another promising matchup vs. his brother in L.A. on Tuesday.
Nov 19 - 11:12 PM

Robin Lopez struggled vs. the Thunder with six points on 2-of-6 shooting, two rebounds, one assist and three fouls in 22 minutes.

Chicago's starters were routed to begin the game and only Lauri Markkanen played 30+ minutes. That led to extra run for backup big man Cristiano Felicio, who chipped in eight points, two rebounds, two assists and one steal in 18 minutes. RoLo has been good this year but the Bulls are a rebuilding team, so they're unlikely going to give their 29-year-old center heavy minutes all season.
Nov 16 - 1:04 AM

Robin Lopez finished with 17 points, four rebounds, two assists and a blocked shot across 28 minutes in Saturday's loss at San Antonio.

Lopez was a very efficient 8-of-11 from the field, which was like night and day from his 1-of-7 disappearance on Friday night against Indiana. It's uncertain if his sore knee was bugging him Friday, but he certainly looked to be back to 100 percent health in Saturday's game. Truth be told, the blowout and extra rest in the second half probably did him some good.
Nov 11 - 11:47 PM

Robin Lopez (knee) was in the lineup against Indiana on Friday, but he managed just three points on 1-of-7 shooting across 28 minutes.

Lopez was able to grab five rebounds with three assists and two blocked shots, but he certainly was struggling at the offensive end. It was a complete turnaround from his time out in Toronto when he hit 10-of-11 from the floor. Despite the ugly shooting performance it appears safe to plug him back into the active lineup if you reserved him due to his sore knee.
Nov 10 - 11:09 PM

Robin Lopez (sore knee) will play Friday vs. the Pacers.

Lopez missed Wednesday's practice but was back at it on Thursday. RoLo has been one of the more pleasant fantasy surprises this seasons. He is currently averaging 15.3 points with 6.1 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.1 blocks. He's even knocked down a couple of 3-pointers.
Nov 10 - 1:30 PM

Robin Lopez (sore knee) will practice on Thursday.

After sitting out of Wednesday's practice, there is "optimism" that both Lopez and Lauri Markkanen (quad) will be good to go for Friday's game vs. the Pacers. Lopez is having a strong year so far, averaging a career-high 15.3 points with 6.1 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.1 blocks.
Nov 9 - 12:31 PM

Robin Lopez (sore knee) did not participate in Wednesday's practice.

The Bulls are off until Friday, so we wouldn't anticipate a sore knee being something that will keep Lopez off the court, and owners can expect to get another update by Friday morning at the latest. In the unlikely event that this minor knee issue does force Lopez to the sidelines, that would open up a lot of minutes for Bobby Portis and Cristiano Felicio, with Portis being the more attractive option between the two.

Robin Lopez helped the Bulls hang tough on Tuesday, hitting 10-of-11 field goals for 20 points with three rebounds, one assist and one steal in 26 minutes.

RoLo didn't turn the ball over and he's been an invaluable frontcourt presence for the Bulls this season -- he and Lauri Markkanen got some welcome relief tonight with Bobby Portis returning in a bench role. The veteran is holding top-100 value on the season, thanks to 14.8 points, 6.5 boards, 2.4 assists, 1.3 blocks and strong percentages -- he's even hit a handful of 3-pointers.
Nov 7 - 10:22 PM

Robin Lopez finished with 14 points, nine rebounds, an assist and a blocked shot across 43 minutes in Saturday's overtime loss against the Pelicans.

Lopez logged 43 minutes as a member of the Knicks once, he did it another time with the Blazers, and this was his first time hitting the total in a Bulls uniform. He has throttled down the offense a bit since a season-high 22 points Wednesday in Miami, but he has continued to be a force on defense with 9.5 boards per game over the past two outings. He also extended his streak with at least one blocked shot to five straight games.
Nov 4 - 11:28 PM

Robin Lopez scored a season-high 22 points on 10-of-17 shooting in Wednesday's loss to the Heat.

The fact that he did this against Hassan Whiteside makes it even more impressive. Lopez also hit a pair of free throws with four rebounds, two assists, one steal and a block in 34 minutes, and he's now scored in double digits in every game so far with averages of 15.5 points, 5.5 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.3 blocks. Those are mid-round numbers, so Lopez is a possible sell-high candidate.
Nov 2 - 12:23 AM

Robin Lopez had 16 points, eight rebounds, four assists and two blocks against the Hawks on Thursday.

He was facing the likes of Dewayne Dedmon, Mike Muscala and John Collins tonight, which worked in his favor. This was essentially the same line he's posted in all five games this season, so he's consistently coming through for his owners, regardless of who the Bulls are playing.
Oct 26 - 10:55 PM

Robin Lopez said he plans to continue shooting 3-pointers this season.

Lopez made the first 3-pointer of his career on Saturday and is 1-for-4 from downtown on the season. "It's definitely something I've been working on," Lopez said. "My teammates have confidence in me. Coaches have confidence in me. I have confidence in me. That last one kind of washed out the made one. But if I'm open, I'm going to take it." If RoLo can average even 0.5 treys per game, that would certainly help boost his fantasy value.
