Lauri Markkanen (hip) out 4-6 weeks

Lauri Markkanen will miss 4-6 weeks while dealing with a stress reaction in his right pelvis.

Fantasy Impact

It’s a big blow to Chicago, particularly given the string of injuries already suffered in the Bulls’ frontcourt. As the proverbial last man standing, expect Thad Young to see a big bump in playing time.

Lauri Markkanen scores 21 in win over Timberwolves on Wednesday night

Lauri Markkanen scored 21 on 6-of-14, going 4-of-10 from behind the arc and 5-of-6 on free throws. He pulled six rebounds, dished one assist, and stole a ball over a team-high 31 minutes.

Fantasy Impact

Markkanen's 21 points are good for his second-best outing over his last 13 games. He looked to be turning his season around after a slow start, but has been stalling again lately. He's averaging 14.3 points, six rebounds, and 1.2 assists for the month of January. He's still second on the Bulls in scoring, but sitting 10.1 points per game behind Zach LaVine. Markkanen and the Bulls will rest tomorrow before facing the Kings on Friday night.

Lauri Markkanen (ankle) probable for Wednesday's matchup

Lauri Markkanen is still dealing with a a sprained ankle but is expected to play in Wednesday's matchup against the Timberwolves.

Fantasy Impact

Markkanen has stated that his goal for this year is to play a full 82-game season and he has battled through a few injuries so far. He's expected to do so again tonight where he'll hope to improve on the 14.3 points and six rebounds he's averaging this month.

Lauri Markkanen ice-cold in Bulls' loss to Bucks on Monday

Lauri Markkanen scored only eight points on Monday, going 2-of-11 from the floor and missing all seven attempts from three-point range. He doubled his point total going a perfect 4-of-4 from the free throw line while adding eight rebounds.

Fantasy Impact

Markkanen's only points of the matchup came on two dunks and four free throws. He airballed a wide open look from deep late in the game and just had an off-night with his stroke. His 0-of-7 is his worst night of the season and his eight points is the worst since November 23rd. He'll look to bounce back Wednesday against Timberwolves, but Markkanen's 14.9 points in January and 11.9 points in November are starting to raise some concerns.

Lauri Markkanen listed as probable Monday, expected to play against Bucks

Lauri Markkanen has been on the injury report with an ankle injury for a couple of weeks now but hasn't missed any time yet. He's expected to fight through his injury in today's matchup as well.

Fantasy Impact

Markkanen's down numbers as of late can hopefully attributed to his ankle injury. He'll most likely play through the injury again today and deserves his normal slot in your fantasy year-long lineup. Given his recent struggles though, he should be avoided in DFS.
