Wendell Carter Jr. (sprained thumb) is day-to-day and hopes to play on Saturday.
It's been quite the whirlwind for Carter, who was initially expecting to miss 6-to-8 weeks. The Bulls should take it very slowly with their rookie but it doesn't sound like he'll miss much time in the near future unless he reports more pain in his thumb. WCJ suiting up on Saturday isn't a lock by any means, but fantasy owners shouldn't plan on being without him for long.
