Coach Fred Hoiberg said Friday that he views Carter-Williams as the Bulls' backup point guard, K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports. With Hoiberg removing Jerian Grant from both the starting lineup and rotation in the last two games and Cameron Payne (foot) now sidelined, Rajon Rondo and Carter-Williams look poised to handle the majority of the minutes at point guard until further notice. Rondo was appointed into the starting five the last two games and has seen 35-plus minutes both times out, so if that pattern holds, it appears Carter-Williams will frequently have to settle for less than 15 minutes, which doesn't give him much intrigue outside of very deep leagues.
Carter-Williams (knee) will play in Saturday's contest against the Clippers, K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports. Carter-Williams had been a game time decision prior to Saturday's game after he sat out the team's past three games due to his knee injury. Though he's able to return, it's unclear how large of a role he'll have alongside Jerian Grant, Rajon Rondo, and Cameron Payne.
Carter-Williams (knee) will be a game-time decision for Saturday's matchup against the ClippersNick Friedell of ESPN reports. Carter-Williams has been sidelined the previous three games due to a knee injury. However, he appears to be trending toward a return Saturday depending on how he feels during pregame warm ups. It is unclear how he will fit in the rotation with Jerian Grant, Rajon Rondo, and Cameron Payne, but he would seem the likely candidate to be on the outside looking in.
Carter-Williams (knee) will not play during Thursday's tilt against the Warriors, K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports. Despite logging a full practice Wednesday, Carter-Williams will not take the floor Thursday against the Warriors due to knee tendinitis. Jerian Grant, Rajon Rondo, and Cameron Payne will all likely see extra workload in Carter-Williams' absence. His next chance to play will come Saturday against the Clippers.
Carter-Williams (knee) went through shootaround but his status for Thursday's game against the Warriors will not be decided until after he warms up, Nick Friedell of ESPN reports. After logging a full practice Wednesday, all signs are pointing to Carter-Williams being active, but the point guard will end up being a true game-time decision. His status, however, likely won't have much of an impact on the Bull's rotation, as Cameron Payne's arrival in Chicago leaves the the team with plenty of point guards to choose from and leaves Carter-Williams potentially out of the rotation entirely. At this point, given the team's depth at the position, Carter-Williams is not a reliable asset in any fantasy league.
