    Wendell Carter Jr. has been dealing with a sprain in his left thumb but is listed as available a day in advance of Friday's matchup vs. the Heat.

    It is encouraging to see WCJ available a day in advance of game-time as he has been listed as probable ahead of the last few contests. It appears that the young big man has put his injury woes behind him and is currently on pace to produce top top 125/120 per-game value. Although he has consistently found himself on the injury report, he has yet to miss a game this season.

    Wendell Carter Jr. played well in a tough matchup against Andre Drummond, posting 12 points on 3-of-7 shooting with 15 rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 33 minutes.

    WCJ is a top-120 value on the season, but has the tools to pull that needle closer to top-75 before the 2019-20 dust settles. Consider floating a buy-low offer right now.

    Wendell Carter Jr. (left thumb sprain) is available to play against the Pistons on Wednesday.

    Carter has only put up top-120/125 value in 9/8 cat leagues to begin the year as the defensive potential he showed as a rookie has yet to arrive. Carter has some competition brewing at the five-spot after Daniel Gafford busted out for 21 points in 20 minutes in Monday's loss to the Bucks.

    Wendell Carter Jr. racked up 18 points, grabbed 14 rebounds and added two assists on Saturday vs. the Nets.

    WCJ struggled with fouls again as he fouled out, with some fouls coming from reaching in on guards. He still managed to play 37 minutes and was perfect from the line, going 8-of-8. He didn't have any defensive stats tonight but is usually good for a block every game.

    Wendell Carter Jr. (left thumb sprain) played 21 minutes on Thursday and scored 14 points (6-of-7 from the field) and pulled down six boards.

    There were no defensive counters in this contest for WCJ who also managed to foul out in this game. He has otherwise generally improved in his sophomore campaign. If he can bump closer to two defensive stats a game, we're looking at a definite top-100 player.

    Wendell Carter Jr. (left thumb sprain) will play on Thursday against the Bucks.

    WCJ has been struggling with his steals rate and FT% which is dragging down his value but he was at 79.5% on free throws last year and 0.6 steals per game in less playing time in his 2018 rookie year, so he should be able regress to the mean.

    PG, Chicago Bulls

    Zach LaVine (right ankle sprain) is officially probable to face the Bucks on Thursday.

    LaVine got some ankle treatment today and isn't expected to miss any time, and the official designation matches up with that vibe. Wendell Carter Jr., who hasn't been truly injured since the offseason, is also listed as probable with a left thumb sprain. He'll be good to go.

    Wendell Carter Jr. recorded a 17-point, 12-rebound double-double for the Bulls and nothing else in Tuesday's 120-102 win over the Knicks.

    WCJ's lack of blocks tonight was a downer but the takeaway tonight is that the big man was healthy enough to put in 35 minutes in this game. The stats will follow. For now, we're just happy to see Carter stay healthy and on the floor.

    Wendell Carter Jr. (left thumb sprain) is available to play against the Knicks on Tuesday.

    Carter's injury designation is getting a bit redundant as he continues to play through his thumb sprain. We will continue to update his status per usual.

    Wendell Carter Jr. (left thumb sprain) is probable for Tuesday's game.

    Carter had a strong performance on Saturday, so there's not much need for worry here as he should be closer to full strength.

    C, Chicago Bulls

    Wendell Carter Jr. (left thumb sprain) scored 13 points and grabbed a career-high 16 rebounds to go with two assists and two blocks in Saturday's loss to the Rockets.

    WCJ was efficient and effective for the Bulls tonight as he converted 5-of-9 of his shots from the field and 3-of-3 from the charity line. The 16 rebounds is an indication of his improved rebounding as he has increased his input by almost two rebounds per game since last season. His stat line was a bit muted as the Bulls conceded early in the fourth quarter and sat some of their starters.

    Wendell Carter Jr. (left thumb sprain) is being listed as available for Saturday's game versus the Bulls.

    WCJ has been playing through his thumb issue for the past few games and it does not seem like something that will keep him off of the court. WCJ will look to bounce back after fouling out in only 13 minutes of play on Wednesday.

    Wendell Carter Jr. (left thumb sprain) is listed as probable to face Houston on Saturday.

    Although Carter has played through the injury for three games now, he is still being listed on the injury report. He will look to get back on track after fouling out in only 13 minutes in Wednesday's game but has otherwise put up late-round standard league value with 12.8 points, 8.8 rebounds and 1.1 blocks in 26.7 minutes through nine games. He should only get more comfortable as the season progresses.

    Wendell Carter Jr. had a terrible time on Wednesday, fouling out after just 13 minutes on the court.

    Carter had two points, two rebounds and two blocks, which more or less saved this from being a total waste. He's been playing through a left thumb sprain but it hasn't affected his play. WCJ is currently returning top-140 value, so the buy-low window remains wide open for one of the league's most talented young players.

    Wendell Carter Jr. (left thumb sprain) is probable to take on the Hawks on Wednesday.

    Despite the fact that WCJ has been on the injury report for what seems like the entirety of the regular season thus far, he has played and started all eight games for the Bulls so far. We should expect the same on Wednesday as he has a juicy matchup against the Hawks who will be without John Collins (suspension).
