  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Records double-double

    Vucevic had 14 points (6-14 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 13 rebounds, four assists, one block and one steal in 39 minutes during Wednesday's 109-105 Play-In Game victory over the Raptors.

    Vucevic needed 14 shots to score 14 points, but he posted a double-double and contributed in peripheral categories in this win. The big man will have his hands full Friday when dealing with Bam Adebayo, as Chicago will take on the Heat in a must-win matchup for the eighth seed of the Eastern Conference.

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Grabs fourth straight double-double

    Vucevic chipped in 20 points (7-11 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 5-5 FT), 10 rebounds and four assists over 28 minutes during Friday's 115-112 win over the Mavericks.

    Vucevic was a force in the first half, scoring 18 points on 7-of-11 shooting from the floor to go along with six boards and two assists. He added just two points in the third quarter before sitting for all of the fourth but also grabbed another four rebounds to give him a game-high 10 on the night. The big man has now recorded a double-double in four straight games to begin this month and has scored at least 20 points in five of his last seven.

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Playing Friday

    Vucevic (rest) will play in Friday's game versus the Mavericks but will have his minutes monitored, K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    A report from Sean Grande of NBC Sports Boston suggested Vucevic would sit out Friday's game versus the Mavericks, but head coach Billy Donovan indicated that the big man is suiting up in pursuit of playing all 82 games for the first time in his career. However, his minutes will be more restricted than usual, so that likely means a bit more playing time for Andre Drummond and Marko Simonovic, among others in the frontcourt.

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: In line to sit Friday

    Vucevic isn't expected to play in Friday's game versus the Mavericks, Sean Grande of NBC Sports Boston reports.

    Vucevic appears likely to join the resting ranks among most of the team's regular starters, leaving a fairly thin crew to take the floor Friday versus the Mavericks. Andre Drummond seems likely to draw the start at center in Vucevic's absence, though Derrick Jones should also factor in, and Terry Taylor and Marko Simonovic could each see some minutes as well.

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Double-double despite loss

    Vucevic produced 19 points (8-15 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 3-3 FT), 10 rebounds and three assists across 34 minutes during Tuesday's 123-105 loss to the Hawks.

    Vucevic had success against Clint Capela inside at times, but he was well-contained by Atlanta overall. Vucevic has been tough to stop lately, scoring at least 19 points in four of his last five games.

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Posts big line in loss

    Vucevic closed with 29 points (12-16 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 12 rebounds and six assists in 36 minutes during Wednesday's 121-110 loss to the Lakers.

    Vucevic was extremely efficient against Los Angeles, missing just four shots from the field and even displaying a deft touch from beyond the arc. The big man recorded his highest scoring total since Jan. 15 and registered his eighth double-double across his past 11 contests. Vucevic added six assists to his stat line, a mark he has reached 10 times this season.

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Returns with 20 points

    Vucevic tallied 20 points (9-13 FG, 2-3 3Pt), eight rebounds and five assists over 30 minutes in Monday's 124-112 loss to the Clippers.

    Vucevic played only 15 minutes in Sunday's win over the Lakers after he was ejected in the second quarter. He may have benefited from the extra rest heading into the second leg of the back-to-back set, as the big man shot the ball efficiently and tied for the team lead with eight boards across 30 minutes. Vucevic has played in all 75 of the Bulls' games this season and is unlikely to get a day off down the stretch with Chicago battling to move up from the No. 10 spot in the Eastern Conference.

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Ejected Sunday

    Vucevic was ejected from Sunday's 118-108 victory over the Lakers after totaling four points (2-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt), two rebounds, one assist and one steal in 15 minutes.

    The veteran center got two quick technical fouls while arguing a call in the second quarter, but Chicago was able to pull out a victory without him. Vucevic had seven double-doubles in his prior eight games before the ejection, and he'll be spoiling to record another one Monday against the Clippers as the Bulls fight to make the postseason.

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Held in check Wednesday

    Vucevic ended with eight points (4-10 FG, 0-2 3Pt), five rebounds, two assists and one steal across 25 minutes during Wednesday's 116-91 loss to Philadelphia.

    Vucevic posted six consecutive double-doubles ahead of Wednesday's matchup, but he was unable to find as much success against Philadelphia's strong frontcourt. This was just the fifth time this year that the 32-year-old was held below 10 points, and he'll have a favorable opportunity to bounce back against the Trail Blazers on Friday.

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Double-double in OT win

    Vucevic notched 21 points (8-12 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 12 rebounds, four steals and two assists across 46 minutes during Monday's 109-105 double-overtime win over the 76ers.

    With the Bulls fighting to hang onto a spot in the play-in tournament, Vucevic has stepped up his game and reeled off six straight double-doubles, averaging 19.7 points, 12.3 boards, 3.3 assists, 1.5 threes and 1.2 steals over that stretch while shooting a cool 50.0 percent from the floor. On the year, the veteran center is once again averaging a double-double a night, the fifth straight season he's done so and the ninth time in his career.

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Double-doubles in win

    Vucevic notched 21 points (9-20 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), 11 rebounds, four assists, three blocks and two steals in 46 minutes during Friday's 139-131 double-overtime win over the Timberwolves.

    DeMar DeRozan and Zach LaVine will get the headlines after combining for 88 points, but Vucevic certainly pulled his weight too and had one of the dunks of the year over Nickeil Alexander-Walker. Vucevic is averaging 21.0 points, 13.0 rebounds and 4.0 assists over his last four games, but he will have his hands full with Bam Adebayo and the Heat on the schedule Saturday.

    The 12-year pro entered Wednesday's contest on a streak of nine consecutive double-doubles but fell short of his 10th in a row. He is averaging 20.0 points and 13.0 rebounds per game over his last 10 games, both up from his season-long marks. He will ride the hot streak into the All-Star break as the Bulls will look to bounce back from a four-game losing streak when they return to action.
