Nikola Vucevic News
Chicago Bulls head coach Billy Donovan says that minutes restrictions for guard Zach LaVine (foot) and center Nikola Vucevic have been lifted and both players will start on Wednesday versus the Houston Rockets. Vucevic has functioned from the second unit since returning on Jan. 5 from a five-game absence with a strained groin, but the 33-year-old two-time All-Star should play closer to his 33.6 minutes per game against Houston. Vucevic is safe to start in all fantasy formats if he wasn't already. Andre Drummond will revert to the bench, with his value significantly dropping. Listed as probable ahead of Wednesday, LaVine is cleared to play with no limitations and should be trusted in season-long lineups despite shaking off the rust from his 17-game absence due to inflammation in his right foot. It's unclear who LaVine is bouncing out of the starting five, but Alex Caruso and Patrick Williams stand to lose some shine.
Chicago Bulls center Nikola Vucevic (groin) is expected to play on Monday against the Hornets. The 33-year-old veteran returned on Friday night versus Charlotte, the first of consecutive meetings between the clubs, after a five-game absence. He came off the bench, operating under a minutes cap and finishing with 11 points, seven rebounds, and three assists. He'll likely spend more time on the floor in his second game back from the layoff, so he's still worth starting in any fantasy setup. Unfortunately, Vucevic's likely increased workload isn't good for Andre Drummond, who has been playing well in the starting lineup.
Chicago Bulls center Nikola Vucevic (groin) is available ahead of Friday's game against the Charlotte Hornets. The veteran big man will make his return to the court after missing the last five games due to a groin issue. His return means that Andre Drummond will head back to the bench. It was a nice run for Drummond, but his value will take a hit now. Vucevic will be on a minutes limit on Friday, so Drummond might have one more decent streaming game left in him.
Chicago Bulls center Nikola Vucevic (groin) is questionable for Friday's game against the Charlotte Hornets. The veteran has missed the last five games with a left-groin strain, although there's a good chance he isn't ready to return. However, the questionable designation at least means he's moving in the right direction. At any rate, Vucevic has averaged 16.7 points and 10.4 rebounds this season, so Chicago could use him back in the lineup. But until he's ready to return, Andre Drummond, who is averaging 19.4 boards, 14.0 points, 1.8 steals, and 1.4 blocks in five starts during the 2023-24 campaign, should remain in all fantasy lineups.
