Chicago Bulls DFS Notes
Zach LaVine missed Wednesday's practice due to a non-covid related illness, but he is traveling with the team and is expected to play Thursday against the Knicks. There seems to be a bug going around the association with a bunch of guys getting sick and missing time. LaVine is expected to play through whatever illness he is dealing with, so until we hear otherwise, expect him to be in the lineup.
New York Knicks DFS Notes
RJ Barrett (illness) is being listed as questionable for Thursday’s game against the Chicago Bulls. Barrett only made it through nine minutes of Tuesday’s loss to the Nets before being ruled out with an illness (non-COVID as far as we know), and his status for tomorrow is officially in jeopardy. Immanuel Quickley logged 38 minutes last night, so should get a ton more opportunity if Barrett is still under the weather come tomorrow, while Quentin Grimes could also play a few minutes.
