Lauri Markkanen (illness) will not play on Wednesday

Lauri Markkanen will not play on Wednesday versus Portland due to an illness. Otto Porter, Kris Dunn, and Zach LaVine are also out, so Brandon Sampson will get the start.

Fantasy Impact

Sampson is worth a look in daily with the entire starting lineup for the Bulls out on Wednesday. Shaq Harrison, Chandler Hutchinson, and Ryan Arcidiacono all get a solid boost for this one.

Fantasy Impact

The 32-point efforts matched Marrkanen's second highest point total of the season. He recorded his 19th double-double of the year as he has improved on his numbers from his rookie season in his second year. At 21 years old, Markkanen should be a good fantasy option for years to come.
