Denzel Valentine News
Chicago Bulls guard Denzel Valentine recorded a season-high 20 points along with three rebounds, four assists, and one steal in a season-high 37 minutes during Saturday's victory over the Magic. Valentine was in the starting lineup and posted his best numbers of the season with more playing time. Overall, the guard is only averaging 7.3 points per game this season. Nevertheless, Valentine has a prime chance to build on this performance on Monday against a Washington team that has a bottom-two defense.
Chicago Bulls forward Denzel Valentine surprisingly has been extended a $4.7 million qualifying offer. That means, Valentine is a restricted free agent, so the Bulls can match any offers that he receives. It is quite odd the Bulls extended this offer since Valentine has not had a significant role on the team. Although, the Bulls have a new head coach and some changes in the front office. Possibly, the team feels that Valentine has something to offer the team. Fantasy owners can continue to ignore him in standard formats.
Chicago Bulls shooting guard Denzel Valentine made his first start of the season on Monday, scoring 17 points in a 109-107 win over the Mavs. He replaced Zach LaVine (quad) in the starting unit and went on to shoot 7-for-15 from the field and 3-for-10 from outside. Valentine also had four rebounds, two assists, and one block in 21 minutes. LaVine was probable for the game before getting downgraded to doubtful, so it appears that his injury isn't a very serious issue. He has a chance of a revenge game against Minnesota on Wednesday. If he can't go, Valentine will likely start again, and it's a good matchup for shooting guards, as the Timberwolves are allowing the fourth-most points in the league to the position this season.
Chicago Bulls forward Denzel Valentine (hamstring) is hopefully going to be able to play in Saturday's game against the New York Knicks, according to head coach Jim Boylen. He was able to practice on Thursday, so there's a chance he returns on Saturday. Valentine has missed each of the last seven games due to a left hamstring issue. The Bulls are expected to ease him back into action, so Valentine wouldn't be worth streaming or a reliable DFS option for Saturday's slate.
