Lauri Markkanen (shoulder) is successfully recovering from injury

Bulls forward Lauri Markkanen (shoulder) feels better but has not taken the floor and practiced with the team yet.

Fantasy Impact

Once Markkanen is closer to taking the floor for a game, we will get a better idea of his expected workload.

Lauri Markkanen (shoulder) out 2-to-4 weeks

The Bulls have announced F Lauri Markkanen will be out 2-to-4 weeks with a right shoulder sprain.

Fantasy Impact

The Bulls went with a small starting five with Denzel Valentine replacing Markkanen in their last game, so we’ll see if they stick with that lineup moving forward. Usage should increase for guys like Patrick Williams and Coby White, while Thaddeus Young should continue to see minutes in the upper 20s off the bench for Chicago.

Lauri Markkanen (shoulder) doubtful vs. Wizards on Monday

Chicago Bulls PF Lauri Markkanen (shoulder) is listed as doubtful to play in Monday's game against the Washington Wizards due to a right shoulder sprain.

Fantasy Impact

Markkanen is expected to miss a second consecutive game on Monday due to a right shoulder sprain that he suffered in a previous outing. The fourth-year PF will cede his starting role to either Thaddeus Young or Garret Temple if he is officially ruled out against the Wizards. Fantasy managers in DFS leagues on FanDuel can get Young at $7,200 salary on Monday, a fairly high price for the veteran forward but it could result in a massive performance against a struggling Wizards team that allowed the Charlotte Hornets to put up 119 points on Sunday.

Lauri Markkanen (shoulder) doubtful for Saturday's game

Chicago Bulls PF Lauri Markkanen (shoulder) has been listed as doubtful for Saturday's game against the Magic.

Fantasy Impact

With Markkanen likely to miss Saturday's game, the Bulls could look to veteran center Thaddeus Young to slot into the starting lineup. Head coach Billy Donovan revealed that he can't continue to play Young 31 minutes per night, and it's possible Chandler Hutchison sees an increase in playing time off the bench.

Lauri Markkanen (shoulder) exits game Friday vs. Magic
