  • Won't start Thursday
    Drummond is not in the starting lineup to face the Celtics on Thursday, Sean Grande of NBC Sports Boston reports.

    Advice: Drummond started against the Cavaliers in Chicago's last game before the All-Star break solely due to matchup reasons, but he moves back to the bench here against a Boston team that features Kristaps Porzingis and Jayson Tatum in its frontcourt. Drummond is averaging 8.8 points and 9.0 rebounds per game across his last five appearances with the second unit. Rotowire.com 11 minutes ago
  • Starting against Boston
    Caruso is in the starting lineup to face the Celtics on Thursday, Sean Grande of NBC Sports Boston reports.

    Advice: Caruso came off the bench for the first time since Dec. 18 in the Bulls' previous matchup before the All-Star break against the Cavaliers, but that decision was strictly matchup-related, so he'll recover his regular starting spot here. This means Andre Drummond will once again come off the bench. Caruso is averaging 7.2 points, 5.6 rebounds and 4.0 assists per game since the beginning of February. Rotowire.com 13 minutes ago
