The Bulls don't have their next game until Tuesday, so these guys will likely have another opportunity to get in a full practice, but them sitting out on Sunday isn't a great sign with this team in full tank mode. If all three are unable to give it a go on Tuesday, Shaquille Harrison, Antonio Blakeney and Ryan Arcidiacono will have the opportunity to start, while Lauri Markkanen will be operating with a hefty usage. Stay tuned.

<![CDATA[Otto Porter (rotator cuff) out on Saturday]]> Otto Porter (shoulder) will not play on Saturday against the Jazz.

He was doubtful to play after missing the last two games. Porter's injury was confirmed with an MRI, so it's possible the Bulls just shut him down. Shaq Harrison is a strong stream options and could be worth owning in standard leagues even with just three games next week.

<![CDATA[Otto Porter (shoulder) doubtful for Saturday]]> Otto Porter (right rotator cuff strain) is doubtful for Saturday's game vs. Utah.

Porter has missed each of the Bulls past two contests. Encouragingly, he told reporters on Thursday that he doesn't anticipate getting shut down for Chicago's final nine games of the season. We should have another update on Otto after Saturday's shootaround. Shaq Harrison started for Chicago on Wednesday and tallied 18 points, six rebounds, four steals and one 3-pointer in 39 minutes.

<![CDATA[Otto Porter doesn't expect to be shut down]]> Otto Porter, who has missed the past two games due to a right rotator cuff strain, said he doesn't anticipate getting shut down for Chicago's final nine games of the season.

Jim Boylen indicated on Wednesday that he expected Porter to sit out at least a few more games, so for now, we'll be considering him doubtful for Saturday's game against the Jazz. After that, the Bulls have a three-game week during Week 24, starting with a Tuesday-Wednesday back-to-back set, so there's a chance he'll only be cleared for two games next week; and potentially less. If you're currently in a tough postseason matchup, sending Porter to the wire for a healthy body could be something to consider.

<![CDATA[Otto Porter Jr. vows to return from right shoulder injury despite Bulls' lost season]]> Otto Porter Jr. had no knowledge that the Bulls shut down Zach LaVine last season as they prioritized draft lottery positioning. So he was incredulous Wednesday when asked if he’d return from the right shoulder injury that sidelined him for a second straight game.

“What do you mean?” Porter said....

<![CDATA[Otto Porter (rotator cuff) out Wednesday]]> Otto Porter (right rotator cuff strain) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Wizards.

Porter underwent an MRI which confirmed the rotator cuff strain, and when Jim Boylen was asked about a potential timetable, he simply responded: "he's hurt." Boylen tends to be a bit vague and dramatic when discussing his injured guys, but with Chicago clearly tanking, Porter will take his time getting back. Shaq Harrison could draw another start tonight, and he'd be someone to consider streaming in deep leagues for his upside in steals.

Porter tweaked his right shoulder during Sunday's game in Sacramento and was forced to the sidelines on Monday, which resulted in Shaquille Harrison moving into the starting lineup and Antonio Blakeney saw some more minutes with the second unit. That'll again be the case on Wednesday if Porter is out again, and owners can expect to get another update following tomorrow's shootaround.

<![CDATA[3 takeaways from the Bulls' 116-101 win over the Suns, including a Cristiano Felicio sighting]]> The Bulls scratched Otto Porter Jr. with a strained right rotator cuff on Monday before the Cavaliers’ victory over the Pistons.

If that fact didn’t calm the tank and conspiracy theorists, then perhaps the kinesio tape that Porter sported to protect his right shoulder might have.

Either way, even...

<![CDATA[Otto Porter (rotator cuff) out Monday vs. PHX]]> Otto Porter (right rotator cuff strain) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Suns.

This rotator cuff issue is coming out of nowhere, but we imagine Porter missing this game has more to do with it being the second leg of a back-to-back set on a Chicago team that is clearly tanking. Wayne Selden could move back into the starting five tonight sans Porter, in which case, he'd be someone to consider as a 3-point streamer in deep leagues.

<![CDATA[Listed as out vs. Suns]]> Porter (shoulder) will not play Monday against the Suns due to a strained right rotator cuff, KC Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports

This is the first we've heard of the injury, but it would help explain why Porter was limited, by his standards, in Sunday's loss to the Kings. Porter saw just 24 minutes of action in that game, finishing with eight points, two rebounds, and one assist, while going 3-of-9 from the floor. Consider Porter day-to-day until further notice.

<![CDATA[Otto Porter's streak of double-digit scoring ended at five games]]> Otto Porter's streak of double-digit scoring ended at five games on Sunday, as he made 3-of-9 shots for eight points in 24 minutes.

The good news is that injuries weren't the culprit. Porter was simply limited by the lopsided score and coach Jim Boylen's decision to bench his starters, none of whom played more than 29 minutes. Porter was coming off a knee bruise and the extra rest should at least ensure that he's ready to roll vs. Phoenix on Monday.

Porter was listed on the injury report with a minor knee contusion, but his status was never in doubt. He practiced in full on Thursday and saw right around his average in minutes in Friday's loss. Porter's averaging 17.8 points, 6.0 boards, 2.8 dimes, 1.0 steals and 2.6 triples on 47.8% shooting over his last five games, which puts him in the top-30 in 9-category leagues in that time. He's returned to his must-start ways.

He went through practice on Thursday and was listed as probable following that work with the team. Porter did not practice on Wednesday, and he has dealt with leg injuries several times this season. He'd carry some risk as a DFS play, but he needs to be in all season-long lineups in a very favorable matchup.
