Williams and the Bulls won't play the Raptors on Sunday since the game was postponed due to COVID-19 protocols, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. Toronto doesn't have the minimum eight players available due to the NBA's health and safety protocols, leading to the postponement. The Bulls don't currently have any COVID-19 issues within the team, so they should face the Nuggets on Monday as scheduled.
Williams scored 14 points (6-8 FG, 2-4 3Pt) to go along with seven rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block across 34 minutes in Monday's win over the Rockets. Williams has rebounded from a brief three-game slump to score in double digits in three of his last four contests. He shot the ball very well to reach that milestone Monday, hitting multiple threes for only the seventh time this season. Neither Otto Porter (back) nor Lauri Markkanen's (shoulder) return to the court appears imminent, meaning Williams should consistently see around 30 minutes for the time being.
Williams recorded 11 points (5-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt), 11 rebounds and three assists across 35 minutes in Saturday's 122-114 win over the Kings. Williams recorded his second double-double of the season as he continues to start for the Bulls. The rookie's consistent presence puts him solidly in the conversation for Rookie of the Year, and Chicago's rebuilding effort appears to be in good hands with players like Williams on the roster. The eventual return of Lauri Markkanen and Otto Porter may affect his production somewhat, but Williams has done more than enough to justify a large role in the offense.
Williams (leg) checked back into Monday's game against Indiana, Cody Westerlund of 670TheScore.com reports. Williams was spotted walking to the locker room after appearing to injure his right leg, but he evidently was cleared by the team's medical staff to make a return.
Williams walked to the locker room during the first half of Monday's game against the Pacers due to an apparent right leg injury, K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reports. Williams appeared to suffer the injury during a collision with an opposing player. The severity of the injury is not yet known, but it's worth noting that he was able to walk back to the locker room under his own power, per Johnson.
