This was touted as Lauri Markkanen's breakout season. Instead, 41 games in, he's scoring fewer points per game than in his rookie season while barely averaging more playing time. Where does the Bulls' cornerstone go from here?

Jim Boylen announced a starting frontcourt of Daniel Gafford and Lauri Markkanen for the Bulls' matchup with the Pacers tonight.
