Chicago Bulls Fantasy Spin

Bobby Portis (right elbow injury) is questionable for Saturday's game against the Jazz. He may have suffered the injury on Friday night in Oakland in 17 minutes. Portis had a minutes cap of 28 minutes last night, but he didn't get to it because of a blowout. If he can't go, there could be more minutes for Robin Lopez and maybe Jabari Parker.

Utah Jazz Fantasy Spin

Donovan Mitchell ran the point for the Jazz during a 113-95 win over the Lakers on Friday, scoring 33 points with four rebounds, nine assists, two steals, two blocks and four 3-pointers in 33 minutes. The nine assists are tied for a career-high and the same for his two swats. Mitchell is no stranger to being the PG with 76 minutes without a PG next to him before tonight this season, and he had 895 minutes without one last year. He's also as hot as he's been all year with four consecutive 25-plus point games for the first time in his career, averaging 29.5 points on 48.9 FG% and 55.6 3FG%, 5.5 dimes and 4.0 boards over his last four games. It was only a matter of time before he snapped out of his slump, and it might be go time for Donny.
