Luke Kornet News
Boston Celtics center Luke Kornet (ankle) will be sidelined one to two weeks due to a recent injury. The 27-year-old suffered a sprained ankle, which is bad timing in the middle of training camp. The Celtics recently added Blake Griffin to the mix, so Kornet wasn't going to see major minutes anyway. The Celtics are attempting to ease the loss of Robert Williams III (knee) with the signing of Griffin. Possibly, Kornet gets in the mix as well once he's healthy. However, it's unlikely that either Kornet or Griffin have great value in Boston.
Center Luke Kornet will head back to the Boston Celtics on a two-year contract, per Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports. Kornet appeared in 12 regular-season contests with the Celtics down the stretch, averaging just 2.2 points and 2.1 boards across 7.1 minutes per game. The 7'2" big man previously made 18 appearances (two starts) with the team in 2020-21, and he serves as valuable frontcourt depth behind Robert Williams III and Al Horford. While Kornet isn't likely to have any season-long appeal, he could land on the DFS radar on nights where the team is short-handed at center.
Chicago Bulls center Luke Kornet (foot) is expected to miss at least six to eight weeks of action. He is dealing with a severe left ankle sprain and fracture of the fifth metatarsal in his left foot. Fantasy owners can go ahead and drop Kornet if they haven't already. Daniel Gafford and Cristiano Da Silva Felicio will hold down the center spot until Wendell Carter Jr. (ankle) is able to return. Gafford is worth a look in deep leagues until Carter is able to get back on the court.
The Chicago Bulls are likely staring down a thin frontcourt for Saturdays matchup versus the Phoenix Suns. Wendell Carter Jr. (ankle) has been working his way back to a return, while Luke Kornet (ankle) sustained an injury in practice, leaving both doubtful to suit up. With Chandler Hutchison and Denzel Valentine both out of the mix, Thaddeus Young figures to continue seeing a significant workload, while Daniel Gafford and Cristiano Felicio are low-priced DFS options at the center slot. Barring a significant turn in health, the next chance that either Carter or Kornet will have at getting back into action comes Sunday against the Wizards.
