Bulls' Wendell Carter: Posts 17 points in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter finished with 17 points (7-9 FG, 3-4 FT), six rebounds, two steals and one assist in 27 minutes during Tuesday's 108-103 win over the Cavaliers.

Through his first five games since returning from an ankle injury that forced him to miss a large chunk of the season, Carter has produced 6.8 points, 6.6 boards, 1.2 assists and 0.6 blocks in 24.2 minutes per game, shooting 40.0 percent from the field, and 73.7 percent from the line in that span. Similar to several of his teammates, it's been a rough, injury-riddled season for the soon-to-be 21-year old. He hasn't had the opportunity to show the upside that some may have drafted him for. Assuming he's able to stay healthy, maybe Carter will get a better shot at fantasy production down the stretch of the season.

Bulls' Wendell Carter: Quiet showing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter had eight points (2-4 FG, 4-4 FT), six rebounds and an assist in 26 minutes Friday, as the Bulls fell to the Pacers 108-102.

He shoved Jakaar Sampson and proceeded to pick up a technical foul by chirping to the officials in the third quarter. This nearly resulted in an ejection, and the Bulls ended up turning to Thaddeus Young (26 minutes) thereafter to close the game. Carter reached his expected playing total, but is a candidate to remain around 25 minutes in the coming weeks, potentially becoming expendable if Chicago looks to further evaluate rookie Daniel Gafford.

Bulls' Wendell Carter: Restrictions nearly lifted
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter is progressing toward not having a minutes restriction, K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

Carter played 25 minutes during Wednesday's game against the Timberwolves, but he's close to being cleared for his regular 30-minute workload. The team didn't offer an official limit for Friday's contest, but he figures to see between 25 and 30 minutes.

Bulls' Wendell Carter: Will see 22-24 minutes Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter will start and see 22 to 24 minutes during Wednesday's game against the Timberwolves, K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

Carter remains under a minutes limit as he works back from an ankle injury that cost him 22 straight games. In his first two games back, he averaged 6.5 points, 7.5 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.0 block in 20.5 minutes.

Bulls' Wendell Carter: Quiet in 23 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter (ankle) posted seven points (2-5 FG, 3-5 FT), six rebounds, one assist and one block in 23 minutes during Monday's 109-107 win over the Mavericks.

Carter (ankle) drew his second straight start at center and saw his minute total increased by five after earning 18 on Saturday against the Knicks. Considering that he's been out since Jan. 6 prior to these last two tilts, it's not surprising to see Chicago bringing Carter along slowly. As a result, the sophomore big man might be a player to stay away from in the short term. However, Wednesday's bout versus the Timberwolves likely makes for a friendly matchup for fantasy purposes.

Bulls' Wendell Carter: Starting Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter (ankle) will start Monday's game against Dallas, Eric Woodyard of ESPN.com reports.

As expected, Carter will make a second consecutive start. During Saturday's game loss to the Knicks, Carter's first appearance since Jan. 6, he finished with six points, nine rebounds, two assists and a block in 18 minutes of play.

Bulls' Wendell Carter: Probable Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter (ankle) is considered probable for Monday's game against Dallas.

Carter made his long-awaited return to action Saturday night, playing 18 minutes and finishing with six points, nine rebounds and two assists. The probable tag is likely precautionary, but Carter could still face a minutes limitation as he works his way back into game shape.

Bulls' Wendell Carter: Gets limited minutes in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter (ankle) started at center and produced six points (1-5 FG, 4-6 FT), nine rebounds, two assists and one block across 18 minutes Saturday in the Bulls' 125-115 loss to the Knicks.

Though Carter recaptured his usual spot in the starting five after missing the Bulls' previous 22 games with a sprained right ankle, coach Jim Boylen was understandably cautious with the big man's usage in his return. Once he gets a few more games under his belt, Carter should be cleared to play 30 minutes on a regular basis, making him worthy of holding in most 10-team leagues or deeper while his playing time remains restricted.

Bulls' Wendell Carter: Starting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter (ankle) will start Saturday's game against the Knicks, Chuck Swirsky of the Bulls Radio Network reports.

Carter, who has been hampered by a severe right ankle sprain, will play for the first time since Jan. 6. He'll play in a diminished capacity and will be on a 22-minute limit, K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reports. Prior to sustaining the injury, Carter posted averages of 11.7 points, 9.9 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 30.0 minutes per game.

February 29, 2020 01:40 PM
Bulls' Wendell Carter: Upgraded to probable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter (ankle) has been upgraded to probable for Saturday's game against the Knicks

All signs are pointing toward Carter making his return Saturday following a 22-game absence. It's not immediately clear what his role will be in his first game back, and it's possible he's eased back into form.

February 28, 2020 06:08 PM
Bulls' Wendell Carter: Questionable Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter is questionable for Saturday's tilt with New York, K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

There have been no updates on Carter's ankle, leaving him questionable for Saturday's game against the Knicks. Should the 20-year-old return, Daniel Gafford and Cristiano Felicio will likely see hits in their playing time. If the sophomore is unavailable, his next chance to come back will be on Monday against the Mavericks.

Bulls' Wendell Carter: Eyeing Saturday return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter (ankle) said that there is an "80 to 90 percent chance" he'll play Saturday against the Knicks, K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

It appears Carter may finally be able to return to the court after a 22-game absence due to a sprained right ankle. More information may arrive following Friday's practice and/or Saturday's morning shootaround. If he ends up playing, it's possible he'll be on a minutes limit in his first game back.

Bulls' Wendell Carter: Ruled out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter (ankle) will not play in Tuesday's game against the Thunder, KC Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

In an encouraging development, Carter was initially listed as "questionable" for Tuesday, but he'll ultimately miss at least one more game as he works back from a severely sprained ankle. The Bulls have three full days off following Tuesday's game, so there's a decent chance Carter could return for Saturday's contest in New York.

Bulls' Wendell Carter: Questionable Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter (ankle) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Thunder.

Carter missed two more games over the weekend, but there's hope that Tuesday could finally mark his return from the severe ankle sprain that's kept him on the shelf since early January. Look for a clearer update after shootaround Tuesday morning.

February 23, 2020 05:28 PM
Bulls' Wendell Carter: Out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter (ankle) is officially listed as out for Sunday's game against the Wizards, Cody Westerlund of 670TheScore.com reports.

Carter (ankle) will miss his 21st consecutive game as his sprained right ankle continues to prevent him from seeing the floor. The 20-year-old's next opportunity to play will come on Tuesday against the Thunder.

February 22, 2020 01:52 PM
Bulls' Wendell Carter: Ruled out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter (ankle) is listed as out for Saturday's tilt with Phoenix.

Carter remains out with a severely sprained right ankle that's sidelined him for the past 19 contests. His next opportunity to play comes Sunday against Washington.

February 21, 2020 05:48 PM
Bulls' Wendell Carter: Return unlikely Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter (ankle) is doubtful for Saturday's game against the Suns.

Though Carter was able to go through a 3-on-3 game in practice that included contact, he's not quite ready to make his return from a sprained right ankle as soon as Saturday. His next opportunity to play arrives Sunday against the Wizards.

February 21, 2020 02:56 PM
Bulls' Wendell Carter: Takes contact in practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter (ankle) took contact in a 3-on-3 setting during Friday's practice and his status for Saturday's game against the Suns will be determined that day, K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

Carter appears to be on the verge of a return from a sprained right ankle that's kept him out over the past 19 games. If he plays Saturday, there's a strong chance he'll be on a minutes restriction.

February 19, 2020 03:12 PM
Bulls' Wendell Carter: Won't return Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter (ankle) will not make his return Thursday against the Hornets, Mike McGraw of the Chicago Daily Herald reports.

Carter has been out since Jan. 6 due to a sprained right ankle. While he won't play Thursday, a return appears to be on the horizon. Carter's next chance to play arrives Saturday against the Suns.

February 14, 2020 02:36 PM
Bulls' Wendell Carter: Hoping to return Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter (ankle) hopes to play in the first game after the All-Star break Thursday against the Hornets, Jamal Collier of the Chicago Tribune reports.

The 20-year-old has been sidelined since Jan. 6 due to the right ankle sprain and is sitting out Friday night's Rising Stars Challenge, but he may be able to retake the court for the Bulls after an 18-game absence. Carter's availability at practice next week will provide a better idea of whether he'll be cleared to begin the second half on the court.
