Bulls center Daniel Theis is out of the lineup vs. the Pistons on Sunday night. Theis suffered a hip contusion in the Bulls’ win on Friday.
Theis tested the hip in shoot-around this morning, but Coach Donovan said he didn’t feel good enough to go. The next opportunity for Theis to play will be Tuesday vs. the Nets.
This season, Theis is averaging 9.6 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 1.7 assists per game. Losing Theis is a big loss for the Bulls as they take on the Pistons.
Bulls fans should expect to see Lauri Markkanen get increased minutes tonight because of the injury.
