Carter (quad) has been ruled out of Monday's game against Boston.
It will be the third straight absence for Carter, who continues to nurse a bruised right quad. With Wednesday's game against Memphis already postponed, Carter's next chance to play won't arrive until Saturday against Portland. That means he's essentially on a one-game week, so Carter should be left on the bench -- or in an IR spot -- in most weekly leagues.
Carter (thigh) is doubtful for Monday's contest against the Celtics.
Carter has missed the last two games due to a thigh bruise, and it appears as though he's on track to miss yet another matchup. If he's unable to play, Daniel Gafford could start for the Bulls once again.
Carter (thigh) is inactive for Saturday's game against the Lakers.
As anticipated, Carter will miss his second straight matchup, as he's being bothered by a thigh bruise. Daniel Gafford, who posted seven points and six rebounds in 19 minutes Friday, will presumably earn his second straight start with Carter out Saturday.
Carter (thigh), who is out Friday against the Hornets, is doubtful for Saturday's game against the Lakers, Cody Westerlund of 670TheScore.com reports.
Carter's absence should open up extra time for Daniel Gafford and possibly Thaddeus Young if Lauri Markkanen sees more time as a small-ball five. Assuming Carter is out Saturday as well, his next chance to play will arrive Monday against the Celtics.
Carter (thigh) will not play Friday against the Hornets.
Daniel Gafford is a strong candidate to start at center and see plenty of action, and Lauri Markkanen could find himself playing small-ball five as well. Gafford will likely make for a DFS flier, as he's averaging 13.2 points, 6.2 rebounds, 3.3 blocks, 1.3 assists and 1.0 steals per 36 minutes in 55 career games. Notably, Markkanen and Zach LaVine see six percent usage increases with Carter off the court as well.
Carter (thigh) is doubtful for Friday's game against the Hornets, Cody Westerlund of 670TheScore.com reports.
Carter departed Wednesday's practice with a bruised thigh, which is likely to keep him out Friday. Assuming Carter is out, Daniel Gafford should start at center and see plenty of action, and Lauri Markkanen could find himself playing small-ball five as well. Gafford will likely make for a DFS flier, as he's averaging 13.2 points, 6.2 rebounds, 3.3 blocks, 1.3 assists and 1.0 steals per 36 minutes in 55 career games. Notably, Lauri Markkanen and Zach LaVine see six percent usage increases with Carter off the court.
Carter departed Wednesday's practice due to a bruised thigh, KC Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.
It's unclear whether this issue could threaten Carter's status for Friday's game against the Hornets, but he should be considered questionable until further notice. In his last outing, Monday against Houston, Carter posted 10 points, eight rebounds, one assist and one steal in 21 minutes.
Carter registered 16 points (6-9 FG, 4-5 FT), 11 rebounds, two assists and three blocks across 33 minutes in Friday's overtime loss against the Thunder.
Carter got off to a slow start to the season with 15 points combined over his first two games, but he has bounced back quickly and is emerging as a reliable presence on both ends of the court. Carter has posted four double-doubles already and has scored in double digits in all but one of his last 10 games, averaging 14.2 points and 8.5 rebounds during that span.
Carter totaled 23 points (9-15 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 5-6 FT), seven rebounds and three assists in a loss to the Lakers on Friday.
Carter was limited to 25 minutes in the loss but still managed to tally his season high in points. He wasn't as aggressive on the boards as in his previous contest, when he grabbed 17 rebounds against Sacramento, but Carter's seven rebounds were nonetheless a nice complement to his scoring. The third-year center out of Duke is posting per-game averages of 12.9 points, 8.1 boards and 2.8 assists on the campaign.
Carter amassed 11 points (4-9 FG, 3-4 FT), 17 rebounds and four assists in 30 minutes during Wednesday's 128-124 loss to Sacramento.
Carter hauled in a career-high 17 boards Wednesday, notching a double-double in what was one of his better performances this season. He is beginning to find his place in the NBA and the fact he has a coach who appears to know how to use him correctly, certainly works in his favor. Carter is not going to put up huge scoring numbers on a nightly basis but the rebounding is solid and he will typically put up some sort of contribution on the defensive end.
Carter recorded 13 points (4-9 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 5-6 FT), five assists, three rebounds, one block and one steal during a 111-108 win in Portland on Tuesday.
The 21-year-old is averaging 11.9 points and 7.1 rebounds through eight games -- not too dissimilar to last year's 11.3 points and 9.4 boards per game. Carter's been fairly consistent, so he should at least be serviceable in deeper leagues when healthy.
Carter scored 16 points (7-11 FG, 1-1 3PT, 1-2 FT) to go along with five rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block across 23 minutes in Thursday's win over the Wizards.
Carter exited the game briefly with a hip injury early in the fourth quarter but managed to return. Despite the depressed minutes total, he scored a season-best 16 points and knocked down only his second three-point shot of the campaign. Carter also saw an uptick in his defensive stats, a positive development after he came into the game with only two blocks and no steals.
Carter (hip) returned to Thursday's game several minutes after leaving the contest, Rob Schaefer of NBC Sports Chicago reports.
Carter suffered an apparent left hip injury early in the fourth quarter, but he returned to the game soon after leaving the court. Given his quick return, it's unlikely that the issue will impact his availability going forward.
Carter left Thursday's game against the Wizards with an apparent left hip injury, K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reports.
Carter came off the court early in the fourth quarter Thursday and was clutching his left hip as he left the game. He was replaced by Daniel Gafford, and it's not yet clear whether Carter could return over the final few minutes of the contest.
Carter registered 22 points (8-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 5-8 FT), 13 rebounds and four assists across 31 minutes in Sunday's loss against the Warriors.
Carter had two below-average performances to start the season, failing to reach the 30-minute mark or the 10-point plateau in each of those games, but he came out of nowhere to post a strong performance -- and his first double-double of the season -- in Sunday's loss. Carter averaged 11.3 points per game in 2019-20, and that kind of production is more in line with the expectations on his shoulders, so it's hard to imagine Carter scoring close to 20 points on a nightly basis. Either way, he will try to build off Sunday's performance when the Bulls take on the Wizards on the road Tuesday.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
