Markkanen has missed each of the past seven games for the Bulls due to health and safety protocols, but he is officially listed as probable for Friday’s contest vs. the Thunder. He and Ryan Arcidiacano were both able to practice on Wednesday, so both players are on track to return to the court vs. the Thunder. There is no word on whether Markkanen will have a minute’s limit in his first game back.
Otto Porter is currently dealing with a back injury, but he returned to practice on Thursday. He said that his back “feels good”, but he does not have an official status on the injury report at this point. Regardless, it seems like he has a chance to be in the lineup as well.
The Bulls are clearly getting healthier, but Chandler Hutchison and Tomas Satoransky will be sidelined for at least two more games.
