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.
