Top Nikola Vucevic News

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Ejected against Bucks

    Vucevic was ejected from Friday's game versus the Bucks due to a flagrant foul on AJ Green. He finished with 17 points (8-18 FG, 1-3 3Pt), nine rebounds, three assists and one turnover in 34 minutes.

    Tensions were high during the start of the fourth quarter, and Vucevic let his frustrations get the best of him. It was a hard foul, but there's no concern over a possible suspension for his fantasy managers.

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Continues to fill stat sheet

    Vucevic posted 24 points (10-23 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-4 FT), 13 rebounds, five assists, two blocks and two steals in 40 minutes before fouling out of Wednesday's 132-123 double-overtime win over Cleveland.

    Vucevic recorded his fourth consecutive double-double while reaching that mark for the seventh time across his last eight outings. He's doing more than just scoring points and grabbing rebounds, however, as the extended absence of Zach LaVine (foot) has allowed Vucevic to carve a role similar to the one he had during his Orlando Magic days, where most of the offense was flowing through him. Over that eight-game span, Vucevic is averaging 21.5 points, 12.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 0.8 blocks per contest.

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Another double-double

    Vucevic closed Tuesday's 105-95 loss to Detroit with 25 points (12-23 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 0-1 FT), 10 rebounds, two assists and one block across 37 minutes.

    Vucevic has recorded three straight double-doubles, and the veteran big man has now reached that feat in eight of his last 10 appearances. Vucevic has embraced the uptick of offensive touches with Zach LaVine (foot) out, and the numbers back that up. He's averaging 21.8 points, 11.2 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game since the beginning of February.

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Thrives at both ends again

    Vucevic logged 22 points (10-19 FG, 2-5 3Pt), 13 rebounds, three assists and one steal across 34 minutes during Sunday's 114-106 win over New Orleans.

    Vucevic has been impressive in recent weeks, and he has been delivering some of his best performances of the campaign of late, though that's also because he's embraced a bigger role on offense with Zach LaVine (foot) out for the rest of the season. Vucevic has seven double-doubles over his last nine appearances while averaging 21.4 points and 11.4 rebounds per game in that stretch.

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Impressive double-double

    Vucevic logged 22 points (10-19 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 14 rebounds and two assists in 35 minutes during Thursday's 129-112 loss to the Celtics.

    Vucevic has been playing at a very high level in recent weeks, posting four double-doubles across his last five appearances. Seeing the veteran big man producing at both ends is not surprising, but he's been putting up strong numbers in the scoring column. He's scored 20 or more points in seven of his last eight contests, averaging 21.4 points while shooting 47 percent from the field in that stretch.

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Massive double-double in loss

    Vucevic finished Saturday's 114-108 overtime loss to the Magic with 26 points (12-25 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 17 rebounds, four assists, one block and three steals in 43 minutes.

    Vucevic was one of Chicago's top performers Saturday and recorded a double-double for the fourth time over his last five appearances. The veteran big man has also scored 20 or more points in those five outings, and he's making his presence felt on both ends of the court with remarkable consistency. Since returning from injury and recovering his starting role, Vucevic is averaging 19.4 points and 11.4 rebounds per contest across his last 15 appearances.

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Balanced outing in double-double

    Vucevic finished with 24 points (10-18 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT), 12 rebounds, three assists and one steal in 34 minutes during Saturday's 123-115 loss to Sacramento.

    Vucevic led all Bulls players in rebounds while handing out a trio of assists and ending as one of three players with 20 or more points in a double-double performance. Vucevic tallied his ninth game with at least 24 points while notching his 15th game with at least 20 points and 10 boards.

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Double-double in Wednesday's win

    Vucevic notched 22 points (10-22 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 12 rebounds, three assists and two blocks in 33 minutes during Wednesday's 117-110 win over Charlotte.

    It was Vucevic's 25th double-double of the season in 44 games. The veteran center has been his usual productive self since returning from a groin injury that sidelined him in late December and early January, and over the last 12 contests he's averaged 18.2 points, 11.3 boards, 3.8 assists, 1.1 blocks and 1.1 threes while shooting 52.9 percent from the floor.

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Just misses double-double

    Vucevic produced 14 points (5-11 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds, three assists, one block and two steals over 36 minutes during Tuesday's 118-107 loss to Toronto.

    Vucevic didn't have a prolific performance, but he led the Bulls in rebounds and finished just one board shy of a double-double. The big man recorded five consecutive double-doubles between Jan. 13 and Jan. 22, but he's fallen short of the feat in each of his past three contests. Nonetheless, Vucevic continues to be a reliable fantasy center, recording double-digit points with at least seven boards in each of his 12 games in January.

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Corrals 17 boards in losing effort

    Vucevic supplied 19 points (9-17 FG, 1-5 3Pt), 17 rebounds and seven assists in 37 minutes during Monday's 115-113 loss to the Suns.

    Vucevic's 17 rebounds led all players in the contest and helped him record his fifth straight double-double. The big man has shined as a distributor of late, tying his season-high mark with seven assists in two of his past three games. With averages of 16.9 points and 10.7 boards on the campaign, Vucevic appears well on his way to averaging a double-double for the sixth straight season.

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Big double-double in win

    Vucevic finished with 24 points (12-20 FG, 0-3 3Pt), 14 rebounds, seven assists, one block and two steals across 35 minutes during Thursday's 116-110 win over the Raptors.

    The veteran center has started five straight games since fully recovering from a groin injury, and Vucevic has produced double-doubles in four of them, including three straight. He's averaging 19.4 points, 12.4 boards, 4.2 assists, 1.0 threes and 1.0 blocks over that stretch while shooting 52.9 percent from the floor. Vucevic's 22 double-doubles on the season put him in the top 10 in the league, tied with Luka Doncic for ninth.

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Another double-double

    Vucevic provided 17 points (8-19 FG, 1-7 3Pt), 10 rebounds and four assists in 37 minutes during Monday's 109-91 loss to the Cavaliers.

    Vucevic didn't have his best shooting performance in a game where the entire Chicago offense struggled, but the big man at least recorded another double-double -- his third since returning to the starting lineup and fourth in six appearances since coming back from a groin injury. In his six games back, Vucevic is averaging 17.5 points with 10.8 rebounds per game, and he has recovered the starting center position that was held by Andre Drummond while he was out.

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Monster double-double Saturday

    Vucevic totaled 24 points (10-17 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-3 FT), 16 rebounds, five assists and three blocks over 31 minutes during Saturday's 122-116 victory over San Antonio.

    Vucevic feasted on a San Antonio frontcourt comprised of Jeremy Sochan, Dominick Barlow and Sandro Mamukelashvili -- additionally evident through Tre Jones being San Antonio's leading rebounder. Vucevic led Chicago in scoring and has now attempted at least 17 shots in three of five contests since returning from a groin strain.

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Solid double-double

    Vucevic closed with 18 points (9-17 FG, 0-5 3Pt), 15 rebounds, three assists and one block in 40 minutes during Wednesday's 124-119 overtime victory over the Rockets.

    Vucevic had a strong performance and made his presence felt down low on both ends of the court. Vucevic is always going to find ways to produce as long as he remains in the starting lineup, but perhaps the biggest fantasy downfall of his return to the starting unit is the huge downgrade in Andre Drummond's value. Vucevic is expected to remain as Chicago's starting center when the Bulls take on the Warriors on Friday.

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Starting without restrictions

    Vucevic will return to the starting lineup Wednesday and won't be on a minutes restriction, Julia Poe of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Since missing five games with a groin injury, Vucevic has come off the bench and played 25 and 30 minutes, respectively, in his two most recent appearances. However, Vucevic is now set to replace Andre Drummond in the starting lineup and play closer to his average of 33.6 minutes per contest.

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Double-double off bench Monday

    Vucevic amassed 21 points (10-18 FG, 1-3 3Pt), 10 rebounds, four assists, one block and one steal across 30 minutes off the bench during Monday's 119-112 overtime win over the Hornets.

    In his second game back from a groin injury, Vucevic played more minutes than starting center Andre Drummond, but both big men delivered 20-10 performances. Drummond was a revelation during Vucevic's five-game absence, and while the latter should eventually regain his starting role, coach Billy Donovan is likely to do everything he can to keep both players productive, which could mean a slightly reduced workload for Vucevic.
