This morning, the Chicago Bulls announced that power forward Lauri Markkanen will be assigned to NBA G-League affiliate Windy City Bulls for an upcoming practice.

Lauri Markkanen has been out since January 22nd with an ankle injury. The seven-footer has struggled in his third season and many attributed that to him not being healthy. John Paxson also noted that the Bulls needed to find a way to get him more engaged within the offense.
