EDGE Analysis

Pondexter will draw the start at small forward over Paul Zipser for Wednesday's game against the Thunder, Vincent Goodwill of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pondexter has had a limited role over his past five appearances, posting 2.4 points across 7.6 minutes per game. However, with Justin Holiday (personal) out Wednesday, coach Fred Hoiberg has switched things up, opting to give Pondexter the nod at small forward over Paul Zipser. Through the team's first five games, Pondexter averaged 6.8 points and 2.8 rebounds across 15.5 minutes per game -- a role that may be more indicative of what we could see Wednesday.

Pondexter went scoreless (0-1 FG, 0-1 3Pt) in six minutes during Wednesday's 97-91 loss to the Heat.

EDGE Analysis

Pondexter has made an incredible journey back to the basketball court amid serious health concerns, but he's not a very trustworthy option in fantasy. With that being said, Pondexter is averaging 5.4 points, 2.2 rebounds, 0.6 assists, 0.4 steals, and 0.4 blocks in 14.2 minutes through five appearances -- and he is yet to get it going from beyond the arc (one-for-12), so his numbers could improve over time if he starts earning more minutes.

Pondexter (hamstring) has been cleared for Thursday's regular-season opener against the Raptors, K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Coach Fred Hoiberg said that Pondexter is available if needed, so that doesn't necessarily guarantee he'll see the court. Still, with both Nikola Mirotic (face) and Bobby Portis (suspension) facing extended absences, the Bulls could certainly use the added depth in the frontcourt from Pondexter, so he could get some added run if the hamstring injury doesn't flare up.

Pondexter (hamstring) "should be" ready to play Thursday, Mike McGraw of the Daily Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Though it hasn't yet been confirmed, it appears Pondexter is recovering from his left hamstring strain well. With both Nikola Mirotic (face) and Bobby Portis (suspension) out for an extended period, Pondexter could end up seeing significant run at small forward while the team figures out a rotation.

Pondexter (hamstring) will not play in Friday's preseason finale against the Raptors, Chuck Swirsky of the Bulls Radio Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

A strained left hamstring will keep Pondexter off the floor once again, and the swingman will officially miss the entire preseason. There's been no word of Pondexter returning to practice in any capacity, but that's possibly because the team wants to remain cautious given his injury history. Consider Pondexter questionable-at-best to play in next week's season opener in Toronto.

Pondexter (hamstring) has been ruled out for Tuesday's preseason matchup with the Cavaliers, Bulls radio play-by-play announcer Chuck Swirsky reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pondexter has been dealing with a strained left hamstring for a little over a week now and still isn't feeling healthy enough to take the floor. The oft-injured forward sat out the last two seasons entirely with multiple knee injuries, so the Bulls will likely continue to be extremely cautious with him through the early portion of the season. For now, consider Pondexter questionable for Friday's preseason finale against the Raptors.

Pondexter (hamstring) will miss the Bulls' first two preseason contests, KC Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pondexter left Saturday's practice with a strained left hamstring, and while it's the same leg on which he's undergone three knee surgeries, the issues are believed to be unrelated. Expect the Bulls to handle the veteran, who has not played in a regular season game since 2015, with caution throughout the preseason. His next chance to take the court will come Friday against Milwaukee.

Pondexter strained his left hamstring toward the end of Saturday's practice session and will receive additional evaluation Sunday, K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Johnson also notes that it's the same leg in which Pondexter has undergone three knee surgeries, but this appears to be a separate issue. More information on his status should arrive after he undergoes further tests Sunday.

Pondexter (knee) is expected to be ready for the start of trainging camp Tuesday, K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pondexter, who was traded from the Pelicans to the Bulls at the end of August, appears to finally be healthy after multiple knee injuries costed him his last two seasons entirely. The fact that he's expected to practice Tuesday is a good sign that he'll be ready for the start of the regular season, though his injury history alone could result in limited minutes for much of the season. He'll be an extremely risky fantasy option for those even in deeper leagues and it may be wise to take a cautious approach with him until a more defined role is given.
