Bulls Center Daniel Gafford Out With Dislocated Thumb

Gafford had been filling in for Wendell Carter Jr. in recent games

The injury hits just keep coming for the Chicago Bulls, as rookie Daniel Gafford is dealing with a right thumb injury.

According to a press release from the Bulls, Gafford is expected to miss 2-to-4 weeks due to a dislocated right thumb:

Gafford had been starting at center for the Bulls after center Wendell Carter Jr. went down earlier this month with a severe right ankle sprain. That injury will likely keep Carter out of the mix through the All-Star break.

The Bulls are also without small forward Otto Porter Jr., who has been out since early November with a foot injury.

The Bulls are currently in 11th place in the Eastern Conference, four and a half games behind the Brooklyn Nets for the eighth and final playoff spot in the conference.
