Fantasy Impact: The second-year big man appears close to returning to the lineup after missing the past 22 games due to a sprained right ankle. His presence would push both Cristiano Felicio and Daniel Gafford back to their roles off the bench, however it is possible that Carter faces some sort of minutes restriction after missing so many games. Be sure to check back as we get closer to Saturday's game for an official word on Carter's status.

Fantasy Impact: Porter Jr. was able to practice on Thursday, per K.C. Johnson, but still isn't quite ready for game action. His next chance to return will come on Monday night versus the Mavericks.

Luke Kornet will miss the next 6-to-8 weeks due to a foot and ankle injury. (Source: Darnell Mayberry on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Kornet is towards the back-half of the bench so his absence will not create too much of a boost for his teammates. The biggest beneficiaries would likely be Thaddeous Young - who is currently the starter with Lauri Markkanen still out with a pelvis injury - Daniel Gafford and possibly Cristiano Felicio. Felicio has only appeared in 19 games this season so we will have to see how him and Gafford will rotate. Gafford will likely be favored of the two. If Young is still out on waivers, he may get enough minutes to warrant temporary ownership in season-long leagues.

K.C. Johnson on Twitter is reporting that Coby White tweaked his back prior to today’s practice and was not able to participate in the session for the Bulls. (Source: K.C. Johnson on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Coby White has been playing in another level over his last three games as he’s been averaging 33.7 points per game. Monitor his status to see if he is available for Saturday’s match-up with the Knicks. Check the waiver wire to see if White is available. He’s starting to breaking out and could be a great pick-up for the rest of the season for fantasy owners.

Thaddeus Young put up eight points (3-8 FG, 2-3 3PT), four assists, three rebounds, and a steal over 30 minutes in Tuesday's 124-122 loss to the Thunder.

Fantasy Impact: Young has has started in place of the injured Lauri Markkanen for the last 13 games and up until Tuesday's performance he had clocked double-digit scoring efforts in each contest. Rumors are floating that Markkanen should be back by the end of the month which would most likely result in Young being relegated to the bench and taking a big blow to his fantasy value. The veteran forward showed that he can step up when his number is called but due to lack of opportunity he's best left on your league's waiver wire once Markkanen returns.

Tomas Satoransky provided 10 points (4-10 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven assists and five rebounds over 33 minutes in the Bulls’ 124-122 loss to the Thunder on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Satoransky provided a well-rounded line in Tuesday's loss, doing a little bit of everything as he's managed to do all year. Though he doesn't impress with field-goal or three-point percentages, he's been solid from the free-throw line (87.0 percent) while displaying double-digit assist upside. In his first year with Chicago, the fourth-year man is averaging career highs across the board with 10.2 points, 5.5 assists, 3.7 rebounds and 1.3 per contest.

Zach LaVine went for 41 points (19-35 FG, 3-13 3Pt, 0-3 FT), five rebounds, four assists and a steal over 39 minutes in the Bulls’ 124-122 loss to the Thunder on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: LaVine came away with his second straight game of at least 30 points, though the monster effort wasn't enough to hold off the Thunder. He's been doing all he can for Chicago, posting averages of 28.0 points, 5.0 rebounds, 4.8 assists, 3.0 triples and 2.0 steals in four games since returning from the All-Star break.

Daniel Gafford totaled seven points (2-2 FG, 3-4 FT), five rebounds, two steals, two blocks and an assist over 25 minutes in the Bulls’ 112-104 loss to the Suns on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: Gafford made his first start since Jan. 15 and provided solid (if unspectacular) work on both ends of the court. He's a borderline starter in 12-team leagues, but his fantasy value is waning quickly, with Wendell Carter Jr. likely to return soon.

Chandler Hutchinson (shoulder) will not play Thursday’s game against the Hornets. (Source: Mike McGraw on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Hutchinson has been dealing with a shoulder injury since the beginning of January, but has played through it. The injury will keep him out at least one game. His next chance to return will be Saturday’s tilt against the Suns. Look for Shawn Harrison and Ryan Arcidiacono to see an uptick in minutes with Hutchinson sidelined.

Kris Dunn (knee) could miss the remainder of the season due to a sprained right MCL. (Source: K.C. Johnson on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Dunn had an MRI on his right knee on February 4th confirming he was dealing with a sprained MCL. He was ruled out indefinitely and would be re-evaluated in two weeks. "Dunn still has some swelling in that knee," coach Jim Boylen said before the Bulls lost to the Wizards on Feb. 11 in Washington, their final game before the break. "Once his swelling goes down, he will get re-scanned and re-evaluated. But he had a lot of swelling," per K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports. The 25-year old guard is week-to-week and is in danger of missing the rest of the season. Look for Chandler Hutchinson to see an uptick in minutes with Dunn sidelined.

Lauri Markkanen is expected to return to action by the end February. (Source: KC Johnson on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: A return at the end of the February would be just in line with his original timetable of four-to-six weeks that was given at the end of January when Markkanen initially sustained his injury. Markkanen has struggled in his his third year as a pro, regressing in just about every statistical category. That being said, the Bulls haven't had a fully healthy lineup since the season started, so news that Markkanen, Otto Porter Jr., and Wendell Carter Jr. could all returning around the same time is exciting. Hopefully being able to have better spacing on the floor with a fully healthy lineup with allow Markkanen to make the strides that Bulls fans and fantasy owners expected prior to this season.

Adam Mokoka scored 15 hyper-efficient points (6-6 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 0-2 FT) in five minutes of game time in yesterday's 125-119 loss to the Pelicans.

Fantasy Impact: Mokoka has spent most of his season in the G-league but was called up to deal with the recent slew of injuries to the Bulls. He made the most of his limited opportunities, going perfect from the field and dropping 15 points in five minutes. The rookie from France is an extremely speculative add as he's only seen 22 minutes of game time all season, but he should get another opportunity to see the court Sunday night against the 76er's where he can be a Hail Mary in big DFS tournaments.

Ryan Arcidiacono scored 13 points, (5-6 FG, 3-4 3PT), 4 rebounds, 4 assists, and 2 steals during his 25 minutes of floor action off the bench against the Pelicans.

Fantasy Impact: Arcidiacono scored 26 fantasy points against the Pelicans and is averaging 9 on the season in standard leagues. This was his best fantasy performance on the season. He remains owned in less then 3% of all standard fantasy leagues and should remain that way until more if provided on a weekly basis.

Denzel Valentine (hamstring) is doubtful for Thursday's game against the Pelicans. (Source: NBA.com)

Fantasy Impact: Valentine is dealing with a left hamstring injury and is expected to miss Thursday's tilt against the Pelicans. Fantasy owners should monitor his status closer to tip-off to ensure he is ruled out.

Cristiano Felicio scored two points (1-1 FG) with nine rebounds and one block across 24 minutes off the bench in Friday’s 98-81 loss to Sacramento.

Fantasy Impact: Felicio came off the bench and played more minutes than Luke Kornet. Felicio should play around 20 to 25 minutes per game for the Bulls with all the injuries and lack of big man options. It is safe to leave Felicio on the wire.
