Episode Info:

Locked On Bulls is back with a fresh episode, the guys kick off the show with a quick preview of tonight's final game of the Bulls west coast trip from hell in Denver. The Bulls have lost 11 games in a row to the Denver Nuggets on the road and are currently on an eight game losing streak. The guys spend the majority of the episode dissecting an interview with Lauri Markkanen done by Yle Sports, a Finnish news outlet which goes talks at more length about his struggles this season.

The guys talk about Wendell Carter Jr.'s injury scare and have to make mention that this Bulls team seemingly cannot stay out of the headlines for more than a few days this season. The guys praise the good news that Carter's thumb injury was not serious and his return is likely to be Saturday against the Miami Heat. Locked On Bulls also mentions that Carter was checked out for some soreness in his knee and was cleared on Thursday before shoot around.

Lauri Markkanen has played in 21 games this season since returning from injury which costed him all of training camp and the first 23 games of the season. Yle Sports caught up with Markkanen after the Bulls loss to the Lakers on Tuesday night to talk about his second season in the NBA. The guys discuss how this has been the first opportunity to hear Markkanen open up a little more about the struggles of returning since injury, the impact of his injury, and the struggle overall of the Bulls.

Have Bulls fans and media been overlooking the impact of Lauri Markkanen's injury? Locked On Bulls talks about the effects it can have on his game, the mental side, his unwillingness to be a selfish players, his quotes that emulate leadership, and his surprisingly good relationship off the court with Jim Boylen.

To wrap up, the guys discuss comments made by Zach LaVine postgame after the Bulls eighth loss in a row in Hollywood. LaVine was unable to be reached for comment by most, but the Chicago Sun-Times Joe Cowley was able to speak with LaVine on how he was feeling about the direction of year two with the Bulls. Are there warning signs of things to come this summer? How big of an impact is the remaining 38 games this season and what responsibility does LaVine have to the Bulls in taking that next step? All of this and so much more on Locked On Bulls.
