Chicago Bulls DFS Notes

Billy Donovan said that both Zach LaVine (knee) and Alex Caurso (back) fully participated in practice on Tuesday. LaVine and Caruso's health will be a huge factor in the Bulls' chances of winning games against the Bucks. There were reports that the practice was intense like training camp, so how their bodies respond will be a huge indication of their statuses for Game 1. Unless someone reports on it, we won't know the official status of either player until Saturday night.

Milwaukee Bucks DFS Notes

George Hill (abdominal) is considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Bulls. Originally it was reported that Hill would start in Sunday's game, but he has now been downgraded to questionable. Check back with us after tomorrow's shoot-around for an update on his status.
