Wendell Carter Jr. is planning to undergo surgery on his left thumb on Monday, according to Shams Charania.
WCJ is expected to miss 8-to-12 weeks, ending his rookie season. He showed flashes of his two-way ability, but will miss out on a lot of crucial development time after the Bulls move on from Robin Lopez. Bobby Portis and Lauri Markkanen should get more run at center, while the Bulls will likely showcase Lopez before trading him or buying him out. Cristiano Felicio could see some playing time as well.
