Another day, another MCL sprain for the Bulls. Tuesday, we found out Kris Dunn would miss 4-6 weeks. Wednesday night, Bobby Portis suffered the same injury and received the same prognosis. Save for Zach LaVine, it won’t be a pretty first couple months for the Bulls.
I’m extra bummed because next Friday will be my first game of the year, and I was all set to rock my new Crazy Eyes t-shirt that Bobby markets and sells himself. I can still wear it, right? Show Bobby the fans haven’t forgotten his hustle. Bulls @ Charlotte tonight. John Paxson said on the Score this morning that Chandler Hutchison might start at power forward. So, I’m sure Jabari is ticked. They really must feel strongly about Parker in that reserve role. Or they don’t want him getting used to a starting spot, then benching him when Lauri returns. I do like watching rookies develop and I liked how Hutch played the other night. Take advantage of the opportunity, rook. Go Bulls.
