• Otto Porter Jr.
    SF, Chicago Bulls

    Reinforcements could be on the way for the Bulls shortly following the All-Star break, as Jim Boylen is encouraged by the progress of Otto Porter Jr. and Wendell Carter Jr.

    Both Porter Jr., who has not played since November because of a fractured left foot, and Carter, out since Jan. 6th because of a high right ankle sprain, have made visible signs of progress, walking without a boot and participating in shooting drills this week. Boylen was hesitant to place any exact expectations on either, but he was hopeful they could return to practice shortly after the break. Expectations should be lowered because both guys have struggled to remain healthy but their return could give managers a strong boost for the fantasy playoffs.
