Hutchison (shoulder) will undergo arthroscopic surgery Tuesday to treat the acromioclavicular joint injury of his right shoulder. He will be out 12-16 weeks, which effectively ends his season. Hutchison suffered the sprained shoulder in late November, appearing in just 19 contests since the injury. Ultimately, it wasn't healing as hoped, and he'll undergo surgery to address the issue. Given the recovery timetable, Hutchison should be 100 percent healthy by the time next season's training camp comes around.
Bulls coach Jim Boylen acknowledged Sunday that Hutchison (shoulder) is in a "holding pattern" in his recovery from injury and could miss the rest of the season, Chuck Swirsky of the Bulls Radio Network reports. Hutchison will be sidelined for a ninth straight game Sunday in Brooklyn, a result of the sprained right shoulder he sustained shortly before the All-Star break. According to K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago, Hutchison said he recently received a cortisone shot to address the shoulder injury and was hopeful would be ready to resume basketball activities by mid-March, but the injection apparently hasn't had the desired effect. The Bulls still plan to re-evaluate Hutchison within the next week or two, but if the second-year forward still hasn't made meaningful progress, he may require arthroscopic surgery to address the injury. The 2018 first-round pick has made just 72 appearances through his first two seasons with the Bulls.
