  • Bulls' Patrick Williams: Likely out 4-to-6 months

    Williams (wrist) will undergo surgery to repair torn ligaments in his left wrist from an injury sustained during Thursday's matchup with the Knicks. He's expected to miss 4-to-6 months.

    Initial reports stated that Williams would miss the rest of the regular season, but if he is able to return by the four-month mark, then he would be back by late February, which would give him ample time to gear up for the playoffs. If his return is closer to the six-month mark, then he will likely be out through the first-round of the playoffs. After their offseason acquisitions of Lonzo Ball, DeMar DeRozan and Alex Caruso, the Bulls are expected to make the playoffs, so a postseason return could be in the cards for Williams. However, the most likely chance of him playing again this season would involve him progressing well throughout rehab and avoiding setbacks. Troy Brown, Javonte Green and Alize Johnson will all be candidates for increased role during Williams' absence.

  • Bulls' Patrick Williams: To miss rest of season

    Williams (wrist) is expected to undergo surgery for his dislocated wrist and is expected to miss the remainder of the season, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    This is absolutely devastating news for the second-year-pro and the Bulls. Williams came into the season questionable with an ankle injury, but he was able to return in time for the start of the season. The Bulls will now be without their young forward for the remainder of the year. Alex Caruso saw a season-high 32 minutes during the game in which Williams exited early, which may indicate that the reserve guard could be in store for more opportunities. Troy Brown, Javonte Green and Alize Johnson also emerge as candidates to pick up additional playing time as well amid Williams' rest-of-season absence.

  • Bulls' Patrick Williams: Diagnosed with left wrist sprain

    Head coach Billy Donovan updated after Thursday's loss to the Knicks that Williams suffered a left wrist sprain, Darnell Mayberry of The Athletic reports.

    Wells suffered the injury on the receiving end of a flagrant one foul by Mitchell Robinson. The 20-year-old finished the game with six points (2-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds and a steal in 16 minutes. Donovan was unsure at the moment if Williams would need to undergo further testing. As of now, he should be considered questionable for Saturday's matchup against the Jazz.

  • Bulls' Patrick Williams: Good to go Friday

    Williams (shoulder) will be available for Friday's contest against the Pelicans, Darnell Mayberry of The Athletic reports.

    Williams injured his shoulder while fighting for a loose ball during Wednesday's opener, but the issue doesn't appear to be too severe. The forward played 28 minutes and posted six points and one rebound against the Pistons. He'll likely see a similar workload against the Pelicans on Friday.

  • Bulls' Patrick Williams: Good to go Friday

    Williams (ankle) will make his preseason debut during Friday's finale against the Grizzlies.

    Williams has recovered from a left ankle sprain and will presumably start at power forward in Friday's finale. The Bulls are thin at forward, so Williams should play big minutes this season, especially since he's a strong defensive player in an offensively-tilted lineup.

  • Bulls' Patrick Williams: On track to play Friday

    Williams (ankle) is "hopeful" and "confident" that he'll play in Friday's preseason finale against the Grizzlies, Darnell Mayberry of The Athletic reports. He is officially probable.

    Williams recently began practicing in full, and he'll likely get one chance to play in an exhibition game before the regular-season opener Wednesday against the Pistons. Williams is fully expected to start at power forward this season and should easily see 30 minutes per game given the team's lack of depth at forward.

  • Bulls' Patrick Williams: Goes through 5-on-5 Monday

    Williams (ankle) went through 5-on-5 drills at Monday's practice, Darnell Mayberry of The Athletic reports.

    It was reported Sunday night that Williams could be back on the floor for Friday's preseason finale versus Memphis, and coach Billy Donovan said Monday that it remains a possibility. Per Mayberry, Williams is "progressing in that direction," but the Bulls will base the decision on how Williams' ankle responds to increased activity over the next few days. Either way, Williams is recovering more quickly than expected and should be on course to play in next Wednesday's (Oct. 20) regular-season opener at Detroit.

  • Bulls' Patrick Williams: May be ready Friday

    Williams (ankle sprain) may make his return to the court as soon as Friday's preseason finale against Memphis, Joe Cowley of The Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    After sustaining a sprained ankle during training camp that was expected to keep Williams sidelined for four-to-six weeks, the Florida State product is reportedly progressing ahead of schedule. The soon-to-be second-year pro may be ready to return to the court as soon as Friday. Whenever Williams returns to the Bulls lineup, expect Javonte Green to revert back to his role as a bench piece.

  • Bulls' Patrick Williams: Out 4-6 weeks with sprained ankle

    Williams is out for four-to-six weeks due to a severe left ankle sprain, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    The early portion of Williams' timeline is the start of the regular season, so there's still a chance he doesn't miss any time if he makes excellent progress. Still, it's more likely he misses the first week or two of the season, which leaves the Bulls extremely thin in the frontcourt. Behind Williams is Derrick Jones and Alize Johnson. There's always a possibility DeMar DeRozan sees more time at power forward, opening up minutes for Troy Brown and Alex Caruso too.
