Lauri Markkanen resting Saturday as Bulls face Nets
According to K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune, Chicago Bulls power forward Lauri Markkanen will not play Saturday against the Brooklyn Nets.
Markkanen played Friday, but the Bulls are holding him out of back-to-backs as they have nothing to play for. With Robin Lopez (rest) also out, we'll see a lot of Bobby Portis and probably some Omer Asik as well.
Prior to being ruled out, Markkanen was projected for 25.4 minutes and 24.3 FanDuel points tonight. He's projected for 28.4 FD points on Monday against this same Nets team.
