Robin Lopez was a DNP-CD on Tuesday.

No surprise here, and coach Fred Hoiberg hinted that RoLo could be done for the season since there are only four games left on the schedule.
Apr 3 - 11:19 PM

Robin Lopez started Sunday's game and finished with six points, four rebounds and three assists in 17 minutes, before sitting out the second half.

RoLo admitted this weekend that he's "sacrificing" by playing limited minutes with frequent DNPs down the stretch, but such is life for veteran's on tanking teams. The temporary start tonight may have been a gift from the coaching staff on his 30th birthday, and there's obviously no way to trust him for fantasy purposes.
Apr 1 - 6:06 PM

Robin Lopez will start on Sunday vs. the Wizards, sending Cristiano Felicio to the bench.

The Bulls haven't been hiding their tanking efforts, so Lopez may play the first quarter and sit out the rest of the game. He can't be trusted in fantasy lineups. Cameron Payne, David Nwaba, Justin Holiday and Lauri Markkanen are also starting.
Apr 1 - 1:53 PM

Robin Lopez was a DNP-CD on Friday against the Magic.

It was obvious he was going to sit when he was announced as a non-starter. Lopez will likely play again soon, but has minimal fantasy value.
Mar 30 - 10:00 PM

Robin Lopez is not starting on Friday against the Magic.

He has not come off the bench and picked up minutes since this new "rest" plan, so we're expecting RoLo to be on the bench.
Mar 30 - 5:42 PM

Robin Lopez was fined $25,000 by the NBA for verbally abusing officials Thursday night in Miami.

If you saw what Lopez did on Thursday, you knew this fine was coming. Lopez won't be suspended for tonight, but he may be out of the rotation anyway.
Mar 30 - 3:44 PM

Robin Lopez was ejected on Thursday night.

He did not go quietly and he'll absolutely be getting a fine for not leaving in a timely manner. Lopez also looked to have some profanity as he went into the tunnel, so that could get him suspended (video in link below). It doesn't really matter because he'll get games off anyway.
Mar 29 - 9:40 PM

Cameron Payne, Justin Holiday, David Nwaba, Noah Vonleh and Robin Lopez will start against the Heat on Thursday.

With Cris Felicio out tonight, Lopez should get his biggest chance since the break. He's still going to be a risky play because Bobby Portis is going to get heavy minutes.
Mar 29 - 7:14 PM

Robin Lopez scored four points with three rebounds, one assist and one block in 17 minutes against the Pistons on Saturday.

He did play beyond the first quarter, but obviously didn't start the second half. Hey, at least the Bulls aren't pulling shady business like other teams and we know their plan.
Mar 24 - 9:13 PM

Robin Lopez will start on Saturday against the Pistons on Saturday.

He is not expected to play in the second half, but this could be a rare time he plays in the second quarter. He can't be trusted in fantasy leagues right now.
Mar 24 - 5:49 PM

Robin Lopez scored 12 points with three rebounds in 12 minutes against the Clippers on Tuesday.

The Bulls continue to just play him the entire first quarter, and then pull the plug the rest of the way. Obviously Lopez can't be trusted in fantasy when he's capped at 12 minutes. He's not Boban.
Mar 13 - 10:26 PM

Robin Lopez started Sunday's game but lasted just 12 minutes, finishing with four points on 2-of-6 shooting, two rebounds, one assist and one block.

Lopez played the entire first quarter but was benched the rest of the way, as coach Fred Hoiberg opted for more Bobby Portis (27 minutes) and Noah Vonleh (19 minutes). The NBA front office chastised the Bulls for resting healthy players, which could lead to more half-hearted starts for Lopez, but he's obviously not a trustworthy fantasy option.
Mar 11 - 6:07 PM

Robin Lopez is starting on Sunday vs. the Hawks.

Lopez only saw action in the first quarter of their last game with the Bulls tanking, so there's a good chance they stick with that. He can't be trusted in fantasy lineups. The NBA gets weird in the final weeks.
Mar 11 - 1:29 PM

Robin Lopez returned to the starting lineup on Friday with nine points, two boards and one 3-pointer in 12 minutes against the Pistons on Friday.

He played the entire first quarter, and that was it for him. Lopez probably won't see more than 15 minutes in any game the rest of the way, so there's no reason to add him almost anywhere. He might not see any time in the second, third and fourth quarter all year either.
