Benny's Daily Hoops - 1/10
Chicago Bulls @ Washington Wizards
Bulls: 23rd Pace, 23rd Scoring, 6th Fewest points allowed
Wizards: 14th Pace, 14th Scoring, 9th Fewest points allowed
The Bulls are in a tough spot here. Dwayne Wade is likely to sit on the tail end of this back-to-back. He traveled with the team, but will probably sit out. Jimmy Butler tried to gut it out last night, but he was visibly ill and did not have his “A” game. It looks like Butler might be out today. That means the Bulls are going to get big minutes from guys like Jerian Grant, Michael Carter-Williams, and Doug McDermott today. All three are pretty cheap and should see big minutes. Robin Lopez is playing like garbage lately and Taj Gibson lacks upside. The only other Bull worth a look is Nikola Mirotic, but I am concerned the Bulls lay down and die on the road here against the Wizards.
