Rui Hachimura (Conjunctivitis) Will Play Thursday vs. Bulls
December 30Matt LaMarcaSportsGrid
Hachimura has missed the Wizards’ first four games with conjunctivitis, but he will be able to make his season-debut Thursday vs. the Bulls. He will reportedly be limited to just 20 minutes of playing time, which means he won’t have much standalone fantasy value, but his return diminishes the appeal for some of the other Wizards’ big men. Thomas Bryant, Deni Avdija, and Davis Bertans could all see fewer minutes, while Robin Lopez could fall out of the rotation entirely.
The Wizards are still looking for their first win of the season after dropping each of their first four games, but they’ll have a chance to get on the board Thursday vs. the Bulls. Chicago ranks just 24th in Offensive Efficiency and 20th in Defensive Efficiency to start the year.
