  • Bobby Portis (knee) and Kris Dunn (knee) will play on Monday vs. the Kings.
    Advice: We haven't seen Portis since Oct. 24, and a lot has obviously changed since then. The Bulls are reeling and are in need of a spark, so maybe Portis can provide that off the bench. If he can find the form he had before the injury, Portis should take minutes away from Jabari Parker and could be worth deploying in standard leagues sooner rather than later.
  • Bobby Portis (sprained right MCL) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game vs. Boston.
    Advice: Portis was listed as doubtful for the first time on Friday before being ruled out and has now drawn a "questionable' tag. Even if he does not play Saturday, it looks like he will be back in action by early next week, assuming he does not suffer a setback.
  • Bobby Portis (knee) will not play Saturday against the Celtics.
    Advice: He was questionable for this game, so it sounds like this will be his last game out since his knee injury back on Oct. 24. Jabari Parker and Lauri Markkanen should hold down the PF minutes while Wendell Carter Jr. has some extra run for a little while longer. Markkanen and WCJ owners shouldn't worry, but Parker should trend down upon Portis' return.
  • Bobby Portis (sprained right MCL) is listed as doubtful for Friday's game vs. OKC.
    Advice: Portis was cleared for full-contact work earlier in the week and went through a full practice on Wednesday. The fact that he has been upgraded to doubtful is proof that he is headed in the right direction. After a back-to-back on Friday and Saturday, the Bulls next game is Monday vs. Sacramento.
  • Bobby Portis (sprained right MCL) has been ruled out of Friday's game vs. OKC.
    Advice: Portis had initially been listed as doubtful and making solid progress. Coach Jim Boylen said that there is a "still a possibility" that he is cleared to play Saturday and the back end of a back-to-back for the Bulls. After this weekend, Chicago's next game is Monday vs. Sacramento.
  • Bulls coach Jim Boylen praised Bobby Portis (sprained right MCL) as a player "with the ability to raise the level of your practice[s]."
    Advice: Portis has resumed practicing and could potentially return within the week, though Chicago hasn't offered a specific return date. Boylen is unhappy with his team's conditioning and the fact that he highlighted Portis' energy is a great sign, calling it "something [the Bulls] need." That should quickly translate to playing time, so Portis is an intriguing pickup in competitive leagues.
  • Bobby Portis (knee) said he went through a full practice.
    Advice: He said he feels fine, but he does not have a target date. The Bulls haven't provided many details on their injuries or timelines, so they'll probably just say Portis will be back close to 24 hours before his return. On Tuesday, the Bulls ran a tight frontcourt rotation with a lot Lauri Markkanen at the five, so the Bulls may only have 22-26 minutes for Portis when he's back. He's not the strongest stash given his capped upside, but most owners should consider adding him now that he's getting much closer.
