A return at the end of the February would be just in line with his original timetable of four-to-six weeks that was given at the end of January when Markkanen initially sustained his injury. Markkanen has struggled in his his third year as a pro, regressing in just about every statistical category. That being said, the Bulls haven't had a fully healthy lineup since the season started, so news that Markkanen, Otto Porter Jr., and Wendell Carter Jr. could all returning around the same time is exciting. Hopefully being able to have better spacing on the floor with a fully healthy lineup with allow Markkanen to make the strides that Bulls fans and fantasy owners expected prior to this season.
