The Chicago Bulls will be without Lauri Markkanen for two to four weeks with a right shoulder sprain.

Fantasy Impact

The injury puts a halt to Marrkanen’s 2021 season which has been a career year for him in terms of scoring, averaging 19.1 points per game on 51% shooting, 39% from three. With Markkanen out, Thaddeus Young is likely going to get the starting spot at the four which means he should 100% be rostered given what he’s been able to do on the 25 minutes per game he’s been averaging.
