Wendell Carter Jr. (thigh) ruled out Friday

Wendell Carter Jr. (thigh) will not suit up Friday night against the Hornets

Fantasy Impact

Carter will miss his first game of the season with the injury. His absence will open up some extra minutes and usage in the frontcourt for Lauri Markkanen, Thaddeus Young, and Daniel Gafford.

Wendell Carter, Jr. (thigh) doubtful for Friday's game at Charlotte

After injuring his thigh during practice on Wednesday, Bulls center Wendell Carter, Jr. is being listed as doubtful for Friday's game against the Hornets.

Fantasy Impact

The good news is that WCJ is traveling with the team, suggesting the injury is relatively minor. Carter, Jr. should be considered questionable for Saturday's game against the Lakers. Daniel Gafford will likely see increased playing time in Carter's absence.

Wendell Carter Jr. (thigh) exits practice early with injury

Bulls center Wendell Carter Jr. left Tuesday's practice early after suffering a bruised thigh.

Fantasy Impact

While it doesn't sound like the injury is overly serious, he should be considered questionable for Friday's game against the Hornets. Daniel Gafford would be the biggest beneficiary if Carter was forced to sit.

Wendell Carter Jr. has quiet night as Bulls secure win over Rockets

Wendell Carter Jr. logged 10 points (4-7 FG, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, one assist, and one steal in Monday's 120-125 win over the Rockets.

Fantasy Impact

We're 14 games into the season and Carter has only logged 20 points in two outings. His lack of offensive game really limits his ceiling, although he offers a pretty solid floor. He's averaging 12.8 points, 8.0 rebounds, and 2.4 assists. He's seeing a 1.5 point per game increase from last season but his rebounds per game have dropped by 1.4.

Wendell Carter Jr. swipes seven steals against Mavericks in win

Wendell Carter Jr. logged 12 points (3-7 FG, 1-1 3PT, 5-8 FT), seven rebounds, five steals, an assist, and a block in Sunday's win against the Mavericks.

Fantasy Impact

Carter crushed his previous career-high of three steals on Sunday while stuffing the statsheet. He has been hot and cold this season but his averages of 13.1 points, 8.1 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 0.7 blocks, and 0.4 steals make him worth consideration as a starter every night in most fantasy leagues.
