Wendell Carter Jr. News
Chicago Bulls center Wendell Carter Jr. had a very productive outing in a 133-126 overtime win over the Timberwolves. Carter delivered a 17-10 line for his second straight double-double, adding two assists, two steals, two blocks, and a triple in 32 minutes. The 21-year-old has generally been playing well this season- though he's been pretty special in the last two games. Carter has averaged 17.5 points, 11.5 rebounds, 2.0 blocks, and 2.0 steals per game while shooting 63.6 percent from the field in his last two contests, both Bulls' wins. He'll get a tough test on Friday against Deandre Ayton and the Suns. Ayton ranks fourth in the NBA with 11.9 rebounds per game this year.
Chicago Bulls center Wendell Carter Jr. scored 18 points on 8-for-14 shooting in Monday's game against the Houston Rockets. In addition, he grabbed 13 rebounds and blocked three shots. Carter also posted one assist and two steals. He'll play the Timberwolves on Wednesday, who allow opponents to grab the sixth-most rebounds in the NBA while scoring the seventh-most points per game. With Minnesota also going through a coaching change this week, we could see the perfect storm of conditions for a strong game for Chicago. But with this being the first time Carter had double-digit rebounds since January 15th, Carter might not be the best Bull to target in DFS in that matchup.
Chicago Bulls center Wendell Carter Jr. is reportedly going to be kept around 20 minutes per game, according to head coach Billy Donovan. He doesn't have a strict minutes limit on Carter, but wants to be cautious with the young big man. Last game, Carter finished with 11 points and nine rebounds through 21 minutes of play. His conditioning is a work in progress, but fantasy managers who were patient with Carter are finally getting some positive results.
Chicago Bulls center Wendell Carter Jr. (quad) was able to practice in full Sunday, an indication that he is close to getting back into game action. Carter has been out since Jan. 18 due to a significant right quad injury. Prior to going down, he had scored in double figures in seven straight games, having logged four double-doubles on the year. Daniel Gafford would figure to return to the second unit upon Carter's return, which could come as soon as Monday versus Indiana if all breaks right. Fantasy managers will want to check back for a status update on the Bulls' big man who can be added off the waiver wire in most season-long formats once he officially gets the green light to return.
