|Lauri Markkanen: Nears double-double as starter|
Markkanen posted 10 points (4-14 FG, 2-7 3Pt), nine rebounds, two assists and a steal in 31 minutes during Wednesday's 132-121 loss to Memphis.
The Scoop: Markkanen won the job as the starting small forward over Isaac Okoro to begin the season, and he was one of the team's most well-rounded contributors while coming within one rebound of a double-double against the Grizzlies. He had an inconsistent role during his final season with the Bulls during the 2020-21 campaign but should have a chance to carve out more significant production in Cleveland.
