  • Bulls' Patrick Williams: Scores team-high 23 points

    Williams ended with 23 points (9-13 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT), one rebound and one block over 35 minutes during Wednesday's 116-100 loss to the Bucks in Game 5 of the first-round series.

    Supplying consecutive games of 20-plus points to conclude his season, Williams was one of the few pleasant surprises in a disappointing series for the Bulls. Although Williams appeared in just 17 regular-season games due to undergoing midseason wrist surgery, the future appears bright for the 20-year-old, who should be a full-time starter for the team in 2022-23.

  • Bulls' Patrick Williams: Puts up 20 and 10 in Game 4 loss

    Williams recorded 20 points (7-13 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 3-3 FT) and 10 rebounds in 33 minutes during Sunday's 119-95 loss to Milwaukee.

    Most of Williams' contributions typically come on the defensive end, but he stepped up as a scorer Sunday, tying his season high with three three-pointers en route to just his second 20-point effort in 22 games (regular season and playoffs). For fantasy purposes, Williams' upside has been difficult to gauge after an early season injury kept him sidelined for 65 consecutive games from Oct. 30 thorough March 18. On a roster stocked with more capable offensive options, most of Williams' upside -- at least for now -- is tethered to his defensive abilities.

  • Bulls' Patrick Williams: Paces Bulls on scoreboard

    Williams closed with 35 points (10-21 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 12-14 FT), four rebounds, four assists and one block over 41 minutes during Sunday's 124-120 victory over the Timberwolves.

    Williams saw plenty of run for Chicago in Sunday's regular-season finale since the team elected to rest several key contributors ahead of the playoffs. The 20-year-old responded by leading the Bulls with a career-high 34 points. Williams has now scored in double figures in five of his last six appearances but figures to see a decreased role if the Bulls are back at full strength for the first-round series against Milwaukee.

  • Bulls' Patrick Williams: Posts season high offensively

    Williams totaled 18 points (7-9 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and six rebounds during Tuesday's 127-106 loss to Milwaukee.

    Williams finished second on the squad in scoring behind DeMar DeRozan's game-high 40 points, as the forward made his first start since Oct. 28 and rewarded coach Billy Donovan with a new season best offensively. Williams has scored in double figures in each of the past three games and is averaging 11.5 points dating back to March 29.

  • Bulls' Patrick Williams: Starting with LaVine out

    Williams will start Tuesday's game against the Bucks.

    Williams joins the starters with Zach LaVine (knee) out. It will be his first start since Oct. 28. Over his past two appearances, he's totaled 22 points, 18 rebounds, four blocks, two steals and two assists in 67 minutes.

  • Bulls' Patrick Williams: Logs first double-double of season

    Williams contributed 10 points (4-4 FG, 2-2 3Pt), 12 rebounds, two blocks and one steal across 37 minutes during Thursday's 135-130 overtime win over the Clippers.

    This was undoubtedly Williams' best statistical performance of the campaign, as he notched season highs in both points and boards. He also tied his best mark of the campaign with two blocks. Williams missed 65 games due to a wrist injury, but judging by his season-high 37 minutes Thursday, he appears to be back to full health.

  • Bulls' Patrick Williams: Grabs seven boards in win

    Williams recorded six points (2-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-3 FT), seven rebounds and one steal across 25 minutes during Tuesday's 107-94 win over the Wizards.

    Williams saw 25 minutes off the bench Tuesday, the most he has played since returning from injury. While it does appear as though his role is reasonably secure, he is certainly not going to make any waves outside of the deepest fantasy formats. As we have seen throughout his career, he would need at least 30 minutes per night to even be considered a viable 12-team asset, something that is not going to happen anytime soon.

  • Bulls' Patrick Williams: Will be capped at 25 minutes Monday

    Williams will come off the bench Monday against Toronto and play no more than 25 minutes, per coach Billy Donovan, KC Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    As expected, Williams will face some limitations as he makes his long-awaited return to the lineup, but the fact that he's already been cleared for 25 minutes of action indicates that the Bulls believe he's in good shape. The 2020 first-round pick suffered a fractured wrist during the fifth game of the season back on Oct. 28 and has not played since. Williams started his first five appearances, so once he's back up to speed he could unseat Javonte Green at one forward spot next to DeMar DeRozan.

  • Bulls' Patrick Williams: Will return Monday

    Williams (wrist) will make his return Monday against the Raptors, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Williams made just five appearances this season (all starts) before being sidelined due to a wrist injury. He averaged 6.6 points and 2.2 rebounds in 24.8 minutes per game during that stretch, but Julia Poe of the Chicago Tribune relays that the second-year forward will come off the bench and play under a minutes restriction during his return to game action. Poe adds that Bulls head coach Billy Donovan didn't rule out the possibility of Williams playing the second half of Chicago's back-to-back against Milwaukee on Tuesday if everything goes according to plan Monday.

  • Bulls' Patrick Williams: Recalled to parent club

    Williams (wrist) was recalled to the Bulls from their G League affiliate Saturday.

    Rob Schaefer of NBC Sports Chicago reports that Williams will practice with the Bulls on Sunday and could return to game action as soon as Monday's contest against the Raptors. The second-year forward made just five appearances (all starts) this season before being sidelined due to a wrist injury. During that stretch, he averaged 6.6 points and 2.2 rebounds in 24.8 minutes per game.

  • Bulls' Patrick Williams: Targeting return next week

    Williams (wrist) has been assigned to the G League for rehab purposes and is targeting a return-to-game action for the Bulls sometime next week, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Williams has not played since all the way back on Oct. 28 after undergoing wrist surgery, but he's in the final stages of his ramp-up plan and could be back on the floor for Chicago as soon as Monday's home matchup against Toronto. It's unclear if Williams will play for the Windy City Bulls in Sunday's G League matchup against Westchester or if he'll simply practice with the team while the Bulls finish out a three-game road swing in Phoenix on Friday night. Either way, Williams' return appears imminent, and he'll provide a major boost on the defensive end, in particular, with the postseason approaching.

  • Bulls' Patrick Williams: Cleared for full contact

    According to Bulls' head coach Billy Donovan, Williams (wrist) has been cleared for full contact, K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    Williams hasn't played since Oct. 28 due to wrist surgery, but it sounds like he could be on the verge of returning soon after being cleared for full contact Wednesday. Donovan indicated that Williams could practice with the Windy City Bulls while the Bulls are away on their road trip, so it looks like he'll start ramping up right away with the goal of returning to the court by the end of March.

  • Bulls' Patrick Williams: To return in March

    Wiliams (wrist) is expected to gain clearance to return during the second half of March, Cody Westerlund of 670TheScore.com reports.

    Head coach Billy Donovan declined to provide a concrete return date, but he did note he'll likely use Williams off the bench when he is cleared to play in an effort to prevent any setbacks. The Florida State product hasn't seen any game action since Oct. 28 after undergoing surgery on his left wrist to repair torn ligaments.

  • Bulls' Patrick Williams: Cleared for minimal contact

    Williams (wrist) has been cleared for minimal-contact workouts and may return to practice Friday, K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    Williams will begin contact work for the first time since suffering the wrist injury at the end of October. Johnson relays that the 20-year-old's rehab process is still behind Alex Caruso, but barring any setbacks from his minimal-contact workouts, Williams should be back at practice by the end of the week. If he is cleared for full practices soon, his return to game action should be right around the corner.

  • Bulls' Patrick Williams: Remains limited to non-contact work

    Bulls head coach Billy Donovan said Williams (wrist) took part in individual non-contact work during Sunday's practice, K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    The update from Donovan represents no notable change in Williams' status, as the 20-year-old had already been working out on the court when the Bulls returned from the All-Star break. Until Williams gets the green light to take part in full-contact, full-court practices, his return to action shouldn't be viewed as imminent. The same applies to Lonzo Ball (knee) and Alex Caruso (wrist), who are all working out but have yet to graduate to full-contact work.
