Bulls seeking top executive with full authority of basketball decisions

The Chicago Bulls announced during All-Star Weekend that they were planning to make some front office changes. Now, ESPN is reporting that they are seeking interviews with Denver Nuggets' general manager Arturas Karnisovas and Toronto Raptors' general manager Bobby Webster, among other candidates.

Fantasy Impact

After three straight seasons of less than 30 wins and multiple free agency and trade gaffs, it appears that the Chicago Bulls are moving away from the front office duo made up of John Paxson and Gar Foreman that have led basketball operations for the last 18 seasons. In the past, Chicago was a favorable spot for free agents to choose, but the Bulls' front office reputation has been a deciding factor in my players' choices to sign elsewhere over the last few seasons. The Bulls have a few solid building blocks which may entice Karnisovas or Webster to come to Chicago; Zach LaVine, Lauri Markkanen, Coby White, and Wendell Carter Jr, specifically. A new general manager could help right the Bulls' ship and get some better production out of the young roster.

Zach LaVine (quad) doubtful for Thursday's game

Zach LaVine (quad) is doubtful for Thursday's contest against the Magic.

Fantasy Impact

LaVine has missed the last five games due to a strained left quad. He is expected to miss Thursday's game, but fantasy owners should monitor his situation closer to tip-off to ensure he's inactive. Coby White will continue to see an expanded role if Lavine is ruled out.

Zach LaVine (quad) remains out Tuesday

Zach LaVine (quad) has already been ruled out for Tuesday's game against Cleveland.

Fantasy Impact

This will be LaVine's fifth straight missed game, so maybe he isn't progressing in the right direction. Being ruled completely out of a game over 24 hours in advance doesn't seem to be headed in the right direction. The Bulls play again Thursday in Orlando, so maybe Chicago is just giving him an extra few days to get healthy. Denzel Valentine will continue to start in his place, but it's Coby White and Shaquille Harrison that benefit the most as the primary ball-handlers in Chicago.

Zach LaVine (quad) remains out Sunday

Zach LaVine (quad) will not play Sunday’s game against the Nets.

Fantasy Impact

As expected, LaVine will not play in Sunday’s game against the Nets. He did partially practice on Saturday, and is trending in the right direction towards a return to action soon. Denzel Valentine should see an uptick in minutes and usage with LaVine out. His next chance to return will be Tuesday’s tilt against the Cavaliers.

Zach LaVine (quad) expects to miss a week

Zach LaVine expects to miss roughly a week with a sore left quad.

Fantasy Impact

LaVine has already been ruled out for Wednesday’s game against the Timberwolves and is expected to miss a week. If this timeline holds up, LaVine would miss the next three games and return for March 10th’s tilt against the Cavaliers. Look for Denzel Valentine to see an expanded role with LaVine sidelined. He can be used as a streamer and is worth adding in deep-league formats.
