What’s going on with Denzel Valentine, should Bulls fans be concerned?



Denzel Valentine's lingering injury could be a concern for the Bulls - Locked On Bulls

Locked On Bulls is back with a fresh episode, the guys kick off the show discussing the Bulls loss in New Orleans last night. Anthony Davis and Jrue Holiday with near triple-doubles, the guys thought Wendell Carter Jr. held his own against one of the best big men in the league. What to make of Fred Hoiberg’s first emotional response of the season? The guys talk about how the book is slowly closing on Cameron Payne, why Hoiberg isn’t just starting Arcidiacono at this point, and a few other notes from the game.

The guys spend the second segment discussing Denzel Valentine’s injury more extensively. Chicago Tribune’s K.C. Johnson reported on Saturday that Valentine is farther away from a return than when he initially suffered the ankle injury in late September. The guys read some details on Valentine’s injury, how it might linger into the future, and what the Bulls should do with him going forward. The guys also discuss the toll it’s taking on Valentine and how he will respond once he’s healthy and able to play.

Locked On Bulls wraps up the show with an interesting hypothetical. Locked On Fantasy Basketball host Josh Lloyd posed a question to his followers: Which young trio would you rather have, Chicago’s Lauri Markkanen, Zach LaVine, and Wendell Carter Jr. or Los Angeles’ Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, and Kyle Kuzma. The guys weigh the options, discuss how the Bulls young core is starting to gain some more respect nationally, and if they would do a one-for-one swap for any of those three. All of this and so much more on Locked On Bulls.
