Hutchison (toe) has been ruled out for the remainder of the season.
A broken toe will keep the rookie out for the remainder of the year. He'll finish his first season having played in 44 games, averaging 5.2 points and 4.2 rebounds in 20.3 minutes.
Hutchison (toe) is expected to remain sidelined for two more weeks, Mike McGraw of the Chicago Daily Herald reports.
While Hutchison is slowly making his way back from a broken right toe, he'll require at least two more weeks of rehab before the Bulls even consider getting him back into game action. He's currently looking at a return in late March, assuming he doesn't suffer any additional setbacks.
Hutchison (toe) is increasing his on-court activity but remains without a firm timetable, KC Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Hutchison was observed going through sprints and conditioning drills during Wednesday's shootaround, but the Bulls have neglected to offer anything in the way of a firm return timeline. The rookie first-rounder hasn't played since fracturing his toe on Jan. 25, but he figures to be back in the mix sometime in early-to-mid March. Prior to the injury, Hutchison had started his last 11 games -- averaging 29.2 MPG in that span -- but the Bulls have made some roster changes in the interim, so what role he'll step back into down the stretch remains to be seen.
Coach Jim Boylen said Wednesday that Hutchison (toe) remains without a definitive timeline for a return, K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Coming out of the All-Star break, Hutchison was able to shed the walking boot that had been protecting the fractured sesamoid bone in his right foot, but doctors have yet to clear the rookie to resume on-court work. At this stage, Hutchison is probably safe to rule out for the rest of February, and a clear target date probably won't be known until he's able to take contact in practice.
Hutchison (toe) is expected to be confined to a walking boot for up to four weeks and will be re-examined after the All-Star break.
Hutchison has officially been diagnosed with an acute injury to a sesamoid bone in his right foot, which will knock him out of game action for an extended period of time. The 22nd overall pick in the June draft, Hutchison has started the past 11 games for Chicago, averaging 8.2 points and 6.4 rebounds across 29.2 minutes. Coach Jim Boylen will be faced with the task of finding a replacement small forward. Jabari Parker, Wayne Selden and Shaquille Harrison are all candidates to fill minutes at the position.
