Michael Carter-Williams will start over Rajon Rondo on Saturday against the Bucks.
Rondo was benched for the second half in Friday’s game. It’s unknown what kind of role he will have off the bench for Saturday’s game. He is too valuable to cut loose until we see if this move is a long term one. MCW has appeared in the Bulls last three games and played 27 minutes after Rondo was benched on Friday and finished with 12 points and eight boards. We can expect similar numbers for him tonight with a few more assists.
Hoiberg said this is strictly a basketball decision and that he met with Rondo, who was professional about benching.
