Kornet (ankle) is expected to remain out for the next 6-to-8 weeks. The Bulls got more bad news on the injury front Thursday, as further tests revealed that Kornet's sprained left ankle is apparently more severe than initially expected. The six-to-eight-week timetable effectively ends Kornet's season as the Bulls head toward another likely slot in the lottery. Amid injuries to Wendell Carter, Lauri Markkanen and Daniel Gafford, Kornet had been starting in the frontcourt prior to the injury. In 14 consecutive starts from Jan. 17 through Feb. 20. Kornet posted 10.1 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.4 made threes in 22.4 minutes.
Kornet (ankle) is utilizing crutches and wearing a protective walking boot Saturday, K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reports. The 24-year-old was already ruled out for Saturday's contest with the Suns due to the ankle sprain, but sporting the boot essentially guarantees he'll also remain sidelined Sunday against the Wizards. Kornet has yet to be provided an official timetable for his return, though he initially received a doubtful designation for the matchup with Phoenix.

Kornet (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Saturday's game against Phoenix. Kornet sprained his ankle at practice Friday and is expected to miss at least one game, which leaves the Bulls even more shorthanded up front, as Wendell Carter (ankle) is also unlikely to suit up. Expect Daniel Gafford and Cristiano Felicio to handle most of the center minutes if neither of the aforementioned big men play.
