Chicago Bulls Roster
- Eastern Central
- United Center
Chicago Bulls guard Tomas Satoransky will come off the bench for Tuesday's game against the Cleveland Cavaliers. Satoransky has been playing well this season, but head coach Jim Boylen feels it is time to make a move. Coby White will slide into the starting five for Tuesday's game. This should boost White's usage since he'll be playing with the first unit. Satoransky should continue to see significant minutes, so fantasy owners should wait and see before cutting him off fantasy rosters.
Chicago Bulls guard Zach LaVine (quad) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Cleveland Cavaliers. This marks the sixth straight game that LaVine has missed due to left quad soreness. He has been able to get through some full-contact work during practices. Denzel Valentine and Shaquille Harrison will continue to see increased playing time and value until LaVine returns. Coby White and Lauri Markkanen will see a higher usage without LaVine on the court. Both White and Markkanen are worth looking at as DFS options for Tuesday's slate.
Chicago Bulls guard Ryan Arcidiacono (Achilles) was able to get through portions of Monday's practice. He has missed each of the last two games due to a right Achilles issue. There's a chance that Arcidiacono is able to return for Tuesday's game against the Cleveland Cavaliers. Fantasy owners will have to wait until after Tuesday's shootaround for more information. Shaquille Harrison would lose playing time and streaming appeal if Arcidiacono returns on Tuesday.
Chicago Bulls point guard Coby White scored 21 points on 8-for-21 shooting in Sunday's loss to Brooklyn, adding eight assists, six rebounds, and one steal. The 20-year-old rookie continues to come off the bench, but he logged 35 minutes and he's been getting 30-plus minutes a night regularly for a while now. This has helped White notch at least 20 points in seven of his past eight outings. Zach LaVine (quad) seems close to a return, but White should still be able to get his even when the team's top scorer is back in the lineup. Especially in Tuesday's matchup with the Cavs, who have recorded an ugly 115.0 defensive rating this season.
Chicago Bulls small forward Otto Porter finished Sunday's 110-107 loss to Brooklyn with a team-high 23 points. He also recorded a team-best plus-19 rating in just 25 minutes off the bench. Porter added four steals, three rebounds, and two assists to his line, shooting 9-for-17 from the field and 3-for-8 from deep. This was a very encouraging performance by Porter, who has now played in four games since returning from a foot injury that forced him on the sidelines for four months. He might even get close to 30 minutes next time out when the Bulls host Cleveland on Tuesday. It's a very favorable matchup against one of the league's worst defenses.
