If you're looking for punch, Portis is definitely your man

Oh you’d better believe he’s gonna get some minutes. Wendell better brush up on his right hook.

A follow-up examination on Wendell Carter Jr. (thumb) revealed ligament damage that might require surgery, according to K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune.


possible starting job and 30+ mins per game for 4-6 weeks. sounds like a must-add for me, shooting woes be damned :D

 

besides, his shooting slump should be over soon anyway. he won't be shooting 1-for-11  all the time.

What's the appeal on Portis, only really provides Points and Boards, serious question

Exactly that. As instant offense off the bench, he's a per minute beast in those cats tho so he has the ability to put up 20/10 when given starters minutes

Well, I'm in a points league, so I can really only speak to that.  He's pretty damn solid per minute, and his points and boards and 3's are indeed the focal point.  But with more time on court I'd imagine he'd up the ante a bit with his blocks and steals.  Perhaps not by much, but enough to warrant ownership in my eyes.  WCJ is basically out for the season, and Portis could be huge on the tanking Bulls that lack depth at the 4 and 5.  That said, he's an injury liability, and there's a reason they had him coming off the bench for a reason.  Defense is generally poopy, as is his overall court IQ.  But I'd be pretty happy to have him on my team after it's all said and done.

Ironically, his closest comp to me is the one he punched out of the Bulls. Mirotic is just more mobile & better as a shooter.

 

Huh , crazy eyes is definitely more athletic and mobile than Mirotic. Just a bad shooter outside the paint , like really bad.

Is he a bad shooter? I just checked his splits last season & nothing bad stands out to me. I think Mirotic cuts & runs the floor better than Bobby. Bobby just has more moves in the paint.

Maybe some kind of injury is throwing off his shooting this season though the one with his elbow is recent.
