Bulls rookie Chandler Hutchison to have fractured right toe re-evaluated in 2 weeks

Chandler Hutchison, Bulls

Chicago Bulls rookie small forward Chandler Hutchison will have his fractured right toe re-evaluated in two weeks, according to Adrian Wojnarowski and Malika Andrews of ESPN.

Chandler Hutchison suffered the injury on Friday at home against the LA Clippers. The 22-year-old played for 41 minutes and finished with 12 points and 12 rebounds versus the Clippers.

The Bulls fell to the Clippers, though, losing by a final score of 106-101.

Chicago drafted Hutchison with the 22nd overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft out of Boise State University. In 44 games this season, Hutchison is averaging 5.2 points and 4.2 rebounds per contest while shooting 45.9 percent from the field and 60.5 percent from the free-throw line.

Injuries and losing have been the two constant themes with the Bulls this season. Chicago is 11-38 on the year, 13th place in the Eastern Conference. Zach LaVine, Lauri Markkanen, Kris Dunn and Bobby Portis have all missed extended time due to injuries, and we can now add Hutchison to the list.

Rookie big man Wendell Carter Jr. recently underwent left thumb surgery and will likely miss the rest of the season.

Chicago has the second-worst offense in the NBA, as the team is only averaging 101.1 points per game.
