2/22/2018 Robin Lopez, Chi, C
According to the Chicago Tribune, Lopez (coach's decision) has been ruled out for Thursday. He's not injured, but will play significant less from here on out.

Analysis: The Bulls are going to play some of their young players down the stretch, so we recommend cutting ties with Lopez at this point.
2/22/2018 Tyler Zeller, Mil, F-C
According to the game notes, Zeller is probable for Friday despite dealing with an illness.

Analysis: Zeller has totaled 28 points on 14-of-18 shooting in his last two games.
2/22/2018 Malcolm Delaney, Atl, G
Delaney has been ruled out for Friday's game due to a knee injury.

Analysis: Delaney has scored in double figures in three of the past five games. Consider him questionable for now when the Hawks host the Lakers on Monday.
2/22/2018 Isaiah Taylor, Atl, PG
Taylor is questionable for Friday with an ankle injury.

Analysis: Taylor had his highest-scoring performance since the first week of November in the final game before the All-Star break, pouring in 13 on 6-of-9 shooting in Detroit on Feb. 14.
2/22/2018 Torrey Craig, Den, G-F
Craig has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Spurs.
2/22/2018 Tyler Ulis, Pho, PG
Ulis is questionable for Friday due to a back injury.
2/22/2018 Justin Holiday, Chi, G-F
Holiday will not play Thursday when the Bulls return from the All-Star break to face Philadelphia.

Analysis: Holiday has started all 56 games he has played this season, but the Bulls are looking toward the future, and will sit both Holiday and Robin Lopez.
2/22/2018 Chandler Parsons, Mem, F
Parsons (illness) will miss Friday's game against Cleveland.

Analysis: At least this absence isn't related to Parsons' chronic knee problems. The oft-injured forward returned from a 20-game absence in Memphis' final contest before the All-Star break, scoring five points in 12 minutes in a loss to Oklahoma City on Feb. 14.
2/22/2018 Mario Chalmers, Mem, G
Chalmers is listed as questionable for Friday's game against Cleveland due to tendinitis in his right ankle.

Analysis: Chalmers hasn't been much of a fantasy option anyway of late, averaging 8.2 points, 3.7 assists and 21.9 minutes over his last 11 games.
2/22/2018 Kosta Koufos, Sac, F-C
Koufos (illness) will miss Thursday's game against Oklahoma City.

Analysis: This news won't affect many fantasy rosters, as Koufos is averaging 6.1 points and 6.2 rebounds for the season. The center, who turns 29 on Saturday, isn't a good long-term answer either with the Kings likely to take a longer look at younger players down the stretch.
2/22/2018 Paul Zipser, Chi, F
Zipser suffered a left foot injury during the second quarter of Thursday's game against Philadelphia and will not return.

Analysis: The German is part of the Bulls' rotation but isn't a fantasy factor, as he entered the contest averaging just 3.9 points per game. If Zipser is forced to miss additional time, Denzel Valentine and David Nwaba figure to each pick up a few more minutes.
2/22/2018 Lance Thomas, NY, G-F
Lance Thomas scored six points Thursday on 0-of-1 shooting as the New York Knicks topped the Orlando Magic 120-113. Thomas pulled down five rebounds and added an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of -2 in his 25:17 of playing time. He added one block and one steal.
2/22/2018 Enes Kanter, NY, C
Enes Kanter scored 12 points Thursday, going 6 of 9 from the field, as the New York Knicks defeated the Orlando Magic 120-113. Kanter grabbed 12 rebounds and added an assist, tallying a plus-minus of -5 in his 21:07 on the floor. He added one block.
2/22/2018 Trey Burke, NY, PG
Trey Burke scored 26 points Thursday on 12-of-22 shooting as the New York Knicks defeated the Orlando Magic 120-113. Burke pulled down four rebounds and had six assists, tallying a plus-minus of +15 in his 29:42 of playing time. He added one block and one steal. Burke went 2 of 5 from behind the arc.
2/22/2018 Damyean Dotson, NY, SG
Damyean Dotson scored three points Thursday on 1-of-5 shooting as the New York Knicks topped the Orlando Magic 120-113. Dotson did not grab a rebound but had an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of +1 in his 7:23 of playing time. Dotson went 1 of 2 from 3-point range.
2/22/2018 Luke Kornet, NY, F-C
Luke Kornet did not score Thursday on 0-of-5 shooting as the New York Knicks defeated the Orlando Magic 120-113. Kornet grabbed two rebounds and added an assist, tallying a plus-minus of +1 in his 7:41 on the floor.
2/22/2018 Troy Williams, NY, G-F
Troy Williams scored four points Thursday, going 2 of 3 from the field, as the New York Knicks topped the Orlando Magic 120-113. Williams did not grab a rebound nor have an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of +4 in his 6:06 on the floor.
2/22/2018 Emmanuel Mudiay, NY, PG
Emmanuel Mudiay scored eight points Thursday, going 4 of 9 from the field, as the New York Knicks topped the Orlando Magic 120-113. Mudiay grabbed five rebounds and had four assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -8 in his 22:46 of playing time. He added one steal.
