Bulls vs. Heat Prediction
A pair of hot teams over their last 10 games will meet in Miami on Monday night when the Heat host the Bulls at 7:30 p.m. ET. Will Chicago cover as a 4-point road dog or is there a better bet on the board?
555 Chicago Bulls (+4) at 556 Miami Heat (-4); o/u 225
7:30 p.m. ET, Monday, February 28, 2022
Venue: FTX Arena, Miami, FL
Chicago Bulls DFS Notes
Nikola Vucevic (left ankle sprain) is considered probable for Monday against the Heat. Vooch struggled during their matchup with the Grizzlies, but it's unclear if the injury was the reason why. He should be good to go against the Heat, but if something changes, newly acquired Tristan Thompson could slide into the starting lineup. Thompson is obviously not the well-rounded fantasy asset that Vooch is, but he'll be an excellent source of rebounds.
Miami Heat DFS Notes
Kyle Lowry (personal reasons) will not be available for Monday's game against the Bulls. Lowry won't get to match up with a former teammate and close friend in DeMar DeRozan Monday night, and this leaves a sizable hole in Miami's starting lineup. Look for Gabe Vincent to get the starting nod, which would make him a worthwhile deep-league streamer. Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo are also capable of initiating the offense for the Heat, so don't be surprised if those two experience a slight bump in their assist numbers.
