2018 Fantasy Outlook
Portis continued to build on his game last season -- his third year in the league. The former 22nd overall pick saw a career-high 22.5 minutes per contest and averaged 13.2 points on 47.1 percent shooting from the field, 6.8 rebounds and 1.7 assists. He also recorded 12 double-doubles, nine 20-plus-point performances, and two games with at least 15 rebounds. Despite the emergence of Lauri Markkanen, the signing of Jabari Parker and the drafting of Wendell Carter, Portis’ ability to play both power forward and center should keep affording him opportunities to see the floor. In addition to his impressive rebounding, he’s turned into a passable floor spacer (1.1 threes at 35.9 percent) and free-throw shooter (76.9 percent) -- key aspects for big men in garnering playing time. While it’s ill-advised to assume an uptick in production from Portis given the situation, his overall upside still gives him Fantasy value as a late-round flyer. Read Past Outlooks

Comes to terms with New York

June 30, 2019
Portis agreed to a two-year, $31 million contract with the Knicks on Sunday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Portis put together the best season of his career across stops with the Bulls and the Wizards during the 2018-2019 campaign, putting up 14.2 points along with 8.1 rebounds and 1.4 assists over 50 contests. Washington did extend a qualifying offer to the 24-year-old big man, though they've since rescinded that offer, allowing for Portis to sign as an unrestricted free agent, per Fred Katz of The Athletic. His stellar play has earned himself a payday, and he'll likely enter the starting lineup at one of the forward positions alongside Julius Randle and Kevin Knox, assuming the deal is finalized.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Portis had a relatively disappointing sophomore campaign, as he struggled to be much of a factor in the regular rotation. Even following the trade of Taj Gibson to the Thunder at the trade deadline, Portis really didn't do much to help his case as a Fantasy option, though his minutes certainly increased over the last two months of the season. Portis' per game point (6.8) and rebound (4.8) averages fell from his rookie year, although he did demonstrate a slightly improved shot at 48.8 percent from the floor and 33.3 percent from deep, up from 42.7 and 30.8, respectively, a year prior. His outlook doesn't look much better heading into 2017-18. The Bulls drafted Lauri Markkanen with the seventh overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft and he's currently slotted in as the favorite for starting point guard duties. The Bulls are officially in full rebuild mode following the trade of Jimmy Butler, meaning the rookie big man should get a ton of run. That could come at the expense of Portis' playing time and it wouldn't be surprising if he ultimately was stuck in a similar or smaller role during the upcoming campaign as he battles with Nikola Mirotic for backup duties.
Portis, the 22nd overall pick in 2015, is coming off of an encouraging debut season in which he established himself as a rotation-caliber player. He appeared in 62 games and made four starts, finishing with averages of 7.0 points and 5.4 rebounds per game. Portis started slowly, appearing in only four of Chicago's first 24 games, but his role increased dramatically in mid-December after Joakim Noah was lost for the season with a shoulder injury. Portis put up 20 points and 11 rebounds in a Dec. 19 loss to the Knicks, and from that point on averaged 18.5 minutes per game over the season's final 58 contests. While he was a fixture in the rotation, his role fluctuated on a night-to-night basis, making it difficult for the rookie to establish a rhythm. Portis is expected to take a step forward this season, but it's unclear if he'll be able to carve out significantly more minutes, even after the team parted ways with Noah and Pau Gasol over the summer. Taj Gibson projects to start at power forward alongside Robin Lopez, leaving Portis to compete with Nikola Mirotic for minutes off the bench. Portis is the better rebounder and defender, but Mirotic will be needed to space the floor to help offset what might be the NBA's worst shooting backcourt. To his credit, Portis flashed perimeter skills as a rookie -- he 16-of-52 (30.8%) from three-point range -- but he can't match Mirotic's shooting ability. Given the depth ahead of him, Portis is probably an undrafted commodity in most shallow fantasy leagues, but he holds considerable value as a longer-term asset in dynasty formats.
The Bulls selected Portis with the 22nd pick of the 2015 NBA Draft to add yet another talented big man to their roster. Portis had an excellent sophomore campaign for Arkansas as he averaged 17.5 points, 8.9 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 1.1 steals, and 1.4 blocks in 30 minutes per game. His percentages were impressive as well as he shot 54 percent from the field, 74 percent from the charity stripe, and 47 percent from behind the arc. The Bulls expect him to play power forward and center, and he is similar to fellow Bulls' big man Taj Gibson in his ability to play both positions and play on both ends of the floor. Portis has better range than Gibson though, evident by his ability to shoot from behind the arc. While Portis has a lot of talent, he'll likely be buried on the bench behind Pau Gasol, Joakim Noah, Gibson, and Nikola Mirotic during his rookie season.
