News: Noah missed Friday's practice to attend to a personal matter, the Chicago Tribune reports.
Impact: Noah intends to be back with the team Saturday so there's no chance that he'll be unavailable for Sunday's playoff matchup with the Wizards. This will be the first game of the series.
Wed. Apr 16, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Fredette did not play (Coach Decision) Wednesday in Chicago's regular season finale against Charlotte.
Impact: Fredette filled in for D.J. Augustin on Monday and played pretty well, leaving some speculation for another shot Wednesday. But it turns out that was nothing more than the Bulls simply needing someone to play. Offensively-challenged as is, Chicago might need a shot in the arm over the next few weeks, but Fredette doesn't appear to be a real option.
Wed. Apr 16, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Augustin scored 17 points (6-16 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 2-3 FT) and had two assists in 36 minutes against Charlotte on Wednesday night.
Impact: It was a typical game for Augustin after a one-game hiatus due to personal reasons. He's the de facto scorer for Chicago, and although he comes off the bench he seems like a lock for 30 minutes during the postseason. Still, he won't do much besides score and should be considered a higher risk option in daily contests.
Wed. Apr 16, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Augustin (personal) will rejoin the team on Wednesday for the season finale following the birth of his son, the Chicago Tribune reports.
Impact: Augustin missed Monday's game for the birth of his son but will play again Wednesday. He has averaged 20.5 points, 3.8 assists and 3.3 rebounds in 30 minutes over the past four games, and will look to keep things rolling heading into the playoffs.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Noah scored 18 points (7-16 FG, 4-5 FT) to go along with 10 rebounds, eight assists, two steals and one block in 37 minutes Monday against the Magic.
Impact: Noah seems to approach a triple-double more nights than not and continues to provide owners with unique value based on his ability to distribute the ball.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Fredette scored 17 points (7-14 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT) to go along with three rebounds and two assists in 31 minutes Monday against the Magic.
Impact: Fredette was forced into action with D.J. Augustin (personal) out of action. It's unclear if Augustin will be back in time for Wednesday's game against the Bobcats, or if the Bulls will rest some of their starters in that game as well. If either of those scenarios happen, Fredette will see increased playing time again.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Snell has averaged just seven minutes on the court over the Bulls' past seven games.
Impact: Snell has remained relatively healthy throughout his rookie year but hasn't been afforded many minutes off the bench. This will likely continue unless Chicago decides to rest some of their players during the final two games of the regular season.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Augustin (personal) won't play Monday versus the Magic.
Impact: Kirk Hinrich should see extra run, while Jimmer Fredette and Mike James could also see more run than usual with Augustin unavailable. Consider the Bulls' backup point guard day-to-day for now.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Augustin is a game-time decision Monday for personal reasons, the Chicago Tribune reports.
Impact: Augustin has been a very consistent contributor for quite some time now, and this could be a significant last-minute scratch. If he sits, look for Kirk Hinrich to shoulder a significant load, and we could also see Jimmer Fredette or Mike James make an appearance in Monday's tilt.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | STATS
News: The Bulls waived Shengelia.
Impact: Shengelia appeared in nine games for Chicago after being acquired from Brooklyn for guard Marquis Teague on Jan. 21.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | STATS
News: Chicago has signed Smith for the remainder of the season.
Impact: Smith has averaged 5.3 points and 4.1 rebounds over two-plus seasons for the Houston Rockets. He played in 11 games for Houston this season.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Smith (knee) signed with the Bulls on Monday.
Impact: Smith has been limited by a knee injury for most of the season, which ultimately led to him being waived by the Rockets, but he'll now provide reserve depth for the Bulls as they march into the playoffs. He'll take the roster spot of Tornike Shengelia, who was waived by the Bulls on Monday.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Shengelia was waived by the Bulls on Monday, Jessica Camerato of Basketball Insiders reports.
Impact: Shengelia has seen the court just three times between March and April, as he never was able to carve out much of a role with the Bulls. He'll now look to draw interest from another club.
Sat. Apr 12, 2014 | STATS
News: Taj Gibson scored 17 points off the bench, helping Chicago rally to a 106-98 win over Detroit on Friday. He also added four rebounds and a pair of blocked shots.
Impact: The win clinched home-court advantage in the first round for Chicago in the upcoming playoffs, and also put them third in the conference standings.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Augustin scored 24 points (7-14 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 9-10 FT) with four rebounds and six assists in 28 minutes in the win over the Pistons on Friday.
Impact: Augustin was able to score despite only knocking down one 3-pointer. He hit 4.0 3-pointers in his previous four games, but was able to get to the line against the Pistons. Augustin has averaged 21.4 points in his last five.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Noah had 12 rebounds and 10 assists with six points (2-10 FG, 2-2 FT) in 40 minutes in the win over the Pistons on Friday. He added two steals and three blocks.
Impact: Noah is the rare fantasy asset who doesn't need to score. Despite his low point production, he extended his double-double streak to eight games.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | STATS
News: The Chicago Bulls have signed guard Mike James and Amundson for the remainder of the season.
Impact: Amundson played in 18 games for New Orleans this season. He has also played with Philadelphia (twice), Utah, Phoenix, Golden State, Indiana, and Chicago in his seven seasons.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | STATS
News: The Chicago Bulls have signed James and forward Lou Amundson for the remainder of the season.
Impact: James appeared in 11 games with Chicago earlier this season. An 11-year veteran, he has averaged 9.9 points in his career.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Smith (knee) was waived by the Rockets on Thursday, the Houston Chronicle reports.
Impact: A right knee injury afflicted Smith throughout the season, resulting in exploratory arthroscopic surgery on Feb. 26. In 11 appearances, though, he mustered 3.5 points (on 64.3 percent shooting) and 2.5 rebounds in 9.1 minutes per game.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Amundson signed with the Bulls for the remainder of the season.
Impact: Amundson has familiarity with Tom Thibodeau's system due to a 10-day stint with the team in 2012-13. Regarding NBA experience this year, Amundson logged time in 18 of the Pelicans' first 29 games of the season, averaging 2.1 points (on 50 percent shooting) and 3.1 boards in 10.2 minutes. However, he'll provide nothing more than insurance during Chicago's upcoming playoff run.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: James signed with the Bulls for the rest of the season.
Impact: In two previous stints with the Bulls this season, he averaged one point (on 23.8 percent shooting) and 1.5 dimes in seven minutes across 11 games. He'll provide nothing more than insurance during the team's upcoming stay in the playoffs.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Amundson is expected to sign with the Chicago Bulls in the coming days, CSN Chicago reports.
Impact: The Bulls are also expected to add Mike James to the playoff roster, as they look to stock up on veterans as insurance. Amundson, who spent time with New Orleans this season, played one game for Chicago in 2012-13. It's very unlikely he holds down a consistent role, but he will be playoff eligible, as he wasn't on an NBA roster on Mar. 1.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: James is expected to sign with the Bulls in the near future, CSN Chicago reports.
Impact: James played for the Bulls earlier this season and would be playoff eligible since he was not a member of an NBA roster on Mar. 1. The veteran is familiar with Tom Thibodeau's system and would slot in as the third point guard behind Kirk Hinrich and D.J. Augustin.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Noah scored 15 points (7-13 FG, 1-2 FT) to go along with 13 rebounds, 10 assists and two blocks in 41 minutes against Minnesota on Wednesday night.
Impact: It's more of the same for Noah, who continues to fill the stat sheet at absurd levels for a center. It was surprisingly only his third triple-double since the all-star break, but he's pretty much a threat to do it on any night. Add that to his typical handful of blocks or steals and you have arguably the best all-around fantasy player in the game.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Augustin scored 21 points (8-14 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT) to go along with two rebounds and two assists in 30 minutes against Minnesota on Wednesday night.
Impact: It's the third time in four games that Augustin had scored at least 20 points off the bench for the Bulls. He's settled into a nice 6th Man role for Chicago and is a reasonable play in most leagues considering he'll get about 30 minutes per game and has a relatively high usage rate.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | STATS
News: Rose will have an opportunity to show he is healthy enough to play for the U.S. at the World Cup of Basketball.
Impact: USA Basketball managing director Jerry Colangelo says the injured Chicago Bulls guard will be invited to training camp in July and ''is welcome to show us where he is.'' Colangelo said Wednesday that if Rose is ready, ''he has a chance to make the team.'' Rose had surgery in November to repair torn cartilage in his right knee, and the Bulls said he would miss the rest of the season. But Colangelo says Chicago is encouraging Rose and USA Basketball to consider him playing this summer.
Mon. Apr 7, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Brewer agreed to a contract with the Bulls on Monday.
Impact: Brewer has not played since being released by the Rockets in late February, but he will join the Bulls the rest of the way. Brewer who spent two seasons with the Bulls earlier in his career, will provide some athleticism on the wing heading into the playoffs.
Sat. Apr 5, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Augustin led Chicago with 25 points (8-19 FG, 6-11 3Pt, 3-4 FT) with four rebounds and four assists in 30 minutes in the win over the Wizards on Saturday.
Impact: Over his last five games, Augustin has followed and on-off schedule. When his 3-point shot is falling, he scores at least 20 points. When it isn't, he is a hard player to put on an active fantasy roster. His minutes are consistent, but his production is not.
Wed. Apr 2, 2014 | STATS
News: Augustin had 23 points Wednesday in a win at Atlanta.
Impact: He went 1 for 9 with four points Monday against Boston, so this was a nice bounce-back effort. He's been especially effective on the road lately, averaging 22.5 points in six away contests since the start of March.
