CHICAGO — Robin Lopez and Justin Holiday may be back in the Bulls rotation Wednesday night when the Bulls host the Grizzlies.

Yahoo Sports first reported that the NBA and the Bulls were having a dialogue concerning the lack of playing time for both Robin Lopez and Justin Holiday since the All-Star Break.

Lopez has not dressed in the last six games, while Holiday has played in just one game. Talks between the Bulls and NBA will reportedly lead to limited roles for Lopez and Holiday the rest of the season.

The NBA Board of Governors voted on “rest rules” in the offseason after teams were resting multiple players for nationally televised games last season. The Bulls are cooperating with the league, so no fines have been issued.

The Bulls are 1-5 since benching the vets.
