Further testing on Wendell Carter Jr.'s thumb revealed that his UCL is intact and that his thumb is sprained, meaning he could be listed as day-to-day rather than week-to-week.
It sounds like the Bulls have dodged a major bullet here, as a previous report of gamekeeper's thumb could've left him with a 4-to-6 week timetable. Carter remains someone to hold in all fantasy leagues though this does have the looks of a situation that could become frustrating very quickly. Bobby Portis is still worth adding in all formats while the rest of the Chicago frontcourt loses most of its appeal in deeper leagues.
