  • Bulls' Julian Phillips: Logs 20 minutes in second straight

    Phillips recorded nine points (3-4 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT) and one rebound across 20 minutes in Tuesday's 118-107 loss to the Raptors.

    The rookie second-round draft pick has been on the outside of Chicago's rotation for most of the season, but he cleared the 20-minute mark for the second game in a row Tuesday while Patrick Williams (foot) remained sidelined. Williams isn't scheduled to be re-evaluated for another two weeks and looks likely to remain out through the All-Star break, and Zach LaVine's (ankle) return may not be imminent either, so Phillips looks like he'll have an opportunity to continue playing meaningful minutes off the bench. Even so, Phillips' modest averages of 10.5 points, 1.5 rebounds, 1.5 three-pointers, 0.5 assists and 0.5 blocks over the past two contests means he can largely be ignored outside of deeper leagues.

  • Bulls' Julian Phillips: Recalled to Chicago

  • Bulls' Julian Phillips: Out with sore fibulas

    Phillips is listed as out for Monday's game against the Cavaliers with bilateral fibula soreness.

    The same injuries prevented Phillips from suiting up in Saturday's 122-116 win over the Spurs. Considering the rookie second-round pick was recently assigned to the G League before getting injured, Phillips is unlikely to be included in the NBA rotation even when he returns to full health.

  • Bulls' Julian Phillips: Back to NBA

    Chicago recalled Phillips from the G League's Windy City Bulls on Friday, K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

  • Bulls' Julian Phillips: Headed back to G League

    The Bulls assigned Phillips to the Windy City Bulls of the G League on Friday, K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

  • Bulls' Julian Phillips: Season-high 17 minutes

    Phillips accumulated seven points (3-5 FG, 1-3 3Pt) and three blocks across 17 minutes during Tuesday's 110-97 loss to Philadelphia.

    Nikola Vucevic (groin) and Torrey Craig (heel) remain out, and Patrick Williams (ankle) left the contest early, allowing Phillips, Terry Taylor, Dalen Terry and Adama Sanogo to see increased roles in the second half of a blowout loss. Phillips showcased a versatile skill set by knocking down a triple and swatting three shots in a season-high 17 minutes, which marked just his third NBA game with double-digit minutes. Phillips may garner a modest bench role until Chicago's frontcourt is back to full strength, but currently, he doesn't have fantasy value.

  • Bulls' Julian Phillips: Minimal impact Tuesday

    Phillips logged zero points (0-1 FG) and one rebound in six minutes during Tuesday's 106-102 preseason loss to the Raptors.

    Phillips was a second-round pick in this year's draft and played double-digit minutes in the Bulls' first three preseason games, but he had limited playing time during the team's penultimate preseason matchup Tuesday. He's unlikely to be a significant part of Chicago's rotation once the regular season begins.

  • Bulls' Julian Phillips: Selected 35th by Bulls

    Phillips was drafted 35th overall by the Wizards in the 2023 NBA Draft and was subsequently traded to the Bulls.

    A 6-foot-8 forward out of Tennessee, Phillips had a sizable role as a freshman and put up 8.3 points, 4.7 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 0.5 blocks, 0.6 steals and 0.3 three-pointers in 24.1 minutes per game. His athleticism will be his calling card, and he projects to be a solid defender at the NBA level. The Bulls could certainly use some depth at forward, so Phillips does have a path to playing time behind Patrick Williams, with Derrick Jones Jr. and Javonte Green hitting free agency.
