Chicago Bulls DFS Notes

Zach LaVine entered the NBA's health and safety protocols on Tuesday, and he's being considered questionable for Game 5 on Wednesday, the team announced. With the Bulls slated to play Game 5 against Milwaukee, they'll likely be doing so without their starting backcourt. Alex Caruso is already questionable while in concussion protocols, and now LaVine likely won't be able to play again until May 1st, which would be Game 7 of this series if it gets that far. With how the last two games have gone, it wouldn't be shocking to see the Bucks end the series on Wednesday, and LaVine's absence should help that. Ayo Dosunmu and Coby White will both be asked to do a ton for Chicago, and DeMar DeRozan should have the ultimate green light.

Milwaukee Bucks DFS Notes

Giannis Antetokounmpo dominated the Bulls in Game 4 with 32 points (11-of-22 FGs), 17 rebounds, seven assists, two blocks, one triple, and four turnovers in 35 minutes on Sunday. Giannis has done it all for the Bucks in this series. He’s averaging 27.5 points, 14.5 rebounds, and seven assists through the first four games. The Bulls don’t have an answer for him on either end, as he also has seven blocks so far this series. After two dominant wins in Chicago, the Greek Freak and company should take care of business in Game 5, which should hopefully get them a few extra days for Khris Middleton to get back healthy.
