Hutchison (lower leg) will not play in Monday's game against the Nuggets.
It's unclear when, exactly, Hutchison picked up the injury, but he has not been a factor in the rotation since the first week of the regular season. The Boise State product has appeared in only two games since the start of January.
The Bulls list Hutchison (personal) as out for Friday's game against the Suns with a right lower leg contusion.
Bulls head coach Billy Donovan previously said Feb. 8 that Hutchison would be away from the team indefinitely to address a personal matter, but the NBA's official injury report now attributes the forward's absence to a health-related concern. The team has yet to provide an update on when Hutchison might be ready to play, but he hasn't been a part of Donovan's rotation even when at full strength.
Bulls head coach Billy Donovan said Hutchison won't play Monday against the Wizards due to a personal matter, and the forward is considered out indefinitely, Cody Westerlund of 670TheScore.com reports. "It's apparent he's going to be out for some time," Donovan said.
Hutchison hasn't been a part of the Bulls' rotation since rejoining the team in late January after a three-week absence following his positive COVID-19 test. His absence shouldn't affect how Donovan doles out the minutes among Chicago's forwards.
Hutchison (COVID-19) went unused off the bench Friday in the Bulls' 123-110 loss to the Hornets.
Hutchison and Tomas Satoransky both suited up Friday for the first time in more than three weeks after the two were sidelined following positive COVID-19 tests. While Satoransky cracked the rotation as the team's backup point guard, Hutchison didn't see any action while head coach Billy Donovan turned to Lauri Markkanen, Patrick Williams, Otto Porter and Thaddeus Young to fill all the minutes at either forward spot. Hutchison's path to a regular rotation role will only become more blocked once the Bulls get starting center Wendell Carter (thigh) back.
Hutchison (COVID-19 protocols) is not listed on the injury report for Friday's game against the Hornets.
Hutchison appears to have cleared the league's health and safety protocols after he hadn't played since Dec. 29. He has averaged 13.0 minutes per game in his four games played so far this year, averaging just 3.3 points.
Hutchison (COVID-19 protocol) went through practice Wednesday and is on track to play in Friday's game against the Hornets, KC Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Due to the league's health and safety protocols, the wing hasn't played since Dec. 29, missing a string of 10 contests. His return to practice Wednesday is a major step in the right direction, though; barring a setback, he'll likely be available off the bench Friday.
Hutchison (COVID-19 protocols) is listed as out for Monday's game against Houston.
Hutchison hasn't been available since Dec. 29, and he'll now have to wait until at least Friday (at Charlotte) to potentially make his return to action.
Hutchison (COVID-19) has been cleared to re-enter the Bulls' building for some shooting and other work but will not join the team for the next two games in Oklahoma City and Dallas, Rob Schaefer of NBC Sports Chicago reports.
It's good news that Hutchison is seemingly feeling fine after his COVID-19 diagnosis and that he's close to returning. Still, we'll have to wait until Monday's game against the Rockets in Chicago to potentially see Hutchison take the court.
Hutchison (COVID-19 health and safety protocols) is expected to miss the Bulls' four-game road trip that begins Tuesday in Portland, Mike McGraw of the Chicago Daily Herald reports.
Specifically, head coach Billy Donovan noted that Lauri Markkanen and Ryan Arcidiacono -- who haven't tested positive for COVID-19 but are ruled out through contact tracing -- were unlikely to join the team for the road trip. Reading between the lines, it can be inferred that Hutchison and Tomas Satoransky -- who are both known to have tested positive for the virus -- will also miss the road trip, and likely additional games to follow while they recover. Hutchison's continued absence has been cushioned by the recent return of Thaddeus Young, who has stepped in to absorb backup minutes at the forward spots behind Otto Porter and Patrick Williams.
Coach Billy Donovan revealed Friday that Hutchison has tested positive for COVID-19, Darnell Mayberry of The Athletic reports.
Hutchison was ruled out Thursday and Friday due to health and safety protocols, but Donovan revealed that he has tested positive for COVID-19. It's unclear whether he's experiencing symptoms, and a timetable for his return hasn't yet been established.
Hutchison will miss Thursday's game against the Wizards due to health and safety protocols, Rob Schaefer of NBC Sports Chicago reports. He's expected to miss Friday's game against the Bucks as well.
Hutchison, Lauri Markkanen, Tomas Satoransky and Ryan Arcidiacono are all out for the next two games due to health and safety protocols. They could return Sunday against the Mavericks.
Bulls head coach Billy Donovan confirmed Sunday that Hutchison (shoulder) is healthy and available for the start of training camp, Cody Westerlund of 670TheScore.com reports.
Donovan noted that Garrett Temple, who recently tested positive for COVID-19, is the only Bulls player sidelined to begin camp. Hutchison's second NBA season came to an end in Feb. 11, when he aggravated a right shoulder injury that later required surgery. Now healthy again, Hutchison will be competing with rookie first-round pick Patrick Williams and veteran Thaddeus Young for a spot on the second unit behind projected starting forwards Otto Porter and Lauri Markkanen.
Hutchison (shoulder) noted that his surgically repaired shoulder feels "great," K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reports.
Hutchison also mentioned that his offseason workouts have focused on shooting and ballhandling. Over his first two seasons in the league, the forward is averaging 6.2 points across 19.8 minutes on 45.8 percent shooting from the field, 29.5 percent from three and 59.5 percent from the free-throw line. He appears to be in line to back up Otto Porter at small forward, though Garrett Temple and rookie Patrick Williams could see minutes there as well.
Hutchison (shoulder) will undergo arthroscopic surgery Tuesday to treat the acromioclavicular joint injury of his right shoulder. He will be out 12-16 weeks, which effectively ends his season.
Hutchison suffered the sprained shoulder in late November, appearing in just 19 contests since the injury. Ultimately, it wasn't healing as hoped, and he'll undergo surgery to address the issue. Given the recovery timetable, Hutchison should be 100 percent healthy by the time next season's training camp comes around.
Bulls coach Jim Boylen acknowledged Sunday that Hutchison (shoulder) is in a "holding pattern" in his recovery from injury and could miss the rest of the season, Chuck Swirsky of the Bulls Radio Network reports.
Hutchison will be sidelined for a ninth straight game Sunday in Brooklyn, a result of the sprained right shoulder he sustained shortly before the All-Star break. According to K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago, Hutchison said he recently received a cortisone shot to address the shoulder injury and was hopeful would be ready to resume basketball activities by mid-March, but the injection apparently hasn't had the desired effect. The Bulls still plan to re-evaluate Hutchison within the next week or two, but if the second-year forward still hasn't made meaningful progress, he may require arthroscopic surgery to address the injury. The 2018 first-round pick has made just 72 appearances through his first two seasons with the Bulls.

Hutchison received a cortisone shot to his right shoulder but remains without a timetable for his return, K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reports.
Hutchison missed the final game before the All-Star break due to the injury and seems unlikely to play in the near future, as coach Jim Boylen indicated it's more serious than a day-to-day injury. Shaquille Harrison could see increased run while he remains sidelined.
