Carter-Williams tallied 14 points (4-12 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 6-7 FT), seven rebounds, two assists and two steals across 29 minutes in a 101-99 loss to the Wizards on Tuesday.
Carter-Williams hasn't been a great facilitator during his six-game run as the starting point guard, averaging just 3.0 assists per game, but he's at least been a steady source of points and rebounds. The fourth-year player enjoyed a healthy spike in his usage rate with Jimmy Butler (illness), Dwyane Wade (rest) and Nikola Mirotic (illness) sitting out Wednesday, but the reentry of Rajon Rondo into the rotation resulted in Carter-Williams falling below the 30-minute mark. Coach Fred Hoiberg indicated afterward that Rondo would likely see regular minutes in the rotation in future contests, though it's not expected that he'll displace Carter-Williams as the starter. Even so, Carter-Williams could see his playing time start to plummet a bit with Rondo representing an upgrade over Jerian Grant, who had been backing up Carter-Williams in the preceding five contests.
Carter-Williams went for 15 points (6-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-3 FT), two assists and one rebound across 24 minutes during a 109-94 loss to the Thunder on Monday.
Carter-Williams tallied a season-high 15 points in what was also his best shooting performance of the season. The minute total was a little low, and he may have gotten more run had the team not been blown out. We'll see if he can continue the good play on the offensive end Tuesday against Washington with Jimmy Butler (illness) and Dwyane Wade (rest) to be sidelined.
Carter-Williams produced 10 points (4-12 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds, three assists and one block across 31 minutes during a 118-111 victory over Charlotte on Monday.
Carter-Williams received his second consecutive start at point guard and had a better game this time around with a near double-double. He looks like a decent fantasy option as long as he continues to start while Rajon Rondo, who hasn't played for two straight games, is in Fred Hoiberg's doghouse, as long as owners can deal with his poor field goal percentage. Denzel Valentine (ankle) left Monday's game, and Dwyane Wade (knees) was sidelined, so Carter-Williams could be looking at even more minutes if those two are forced to miss more time.
Carter-Williams will start at point guard Saturday against the Bucks, Nick Friedell of ESPN reports.
With Rajon Rondo struggling of late, the Bulls will move the veteran to the bench in favor of Carter-Williams, who has appeared in only six games this season due to injury. Carter-Williams, who's hardly been a model of consistency himself, played 27 minutes in Friday's loss to Indiana, including most of the second half when Rondo was benched. It's unclear if the decision to start Carter-Williams will extend beyond Saturday, but the Bulls clearly needed a change with Rondo shooting just 35.8 percent from the floor in the month of December.
