After missing the past 27 games with a left wrist injury, Bulls guard Michael Carter-Williams will return Monday night against the Pacers at the United Center.
Carter-Williams has been out since taking a hard fall in a game on Oct. 31. He suffered what the team first called a sprained left wrist and left bone bruise. While the knee got better on the expected timetable, the wrist injury lingered, with bone chips being discovered.
“Carter-Williams won’t have any minutes restrictions because he’s stayed in good shape and been able to do a lot of activity as the wrist was in the final stages of healing up,” coach Fred Holberg said.
In other injury news, wing Doug McDermott is out Monday for the Bulls with a shin injury. It’s a “game-to-game” situation, Hoiberg said.
“He’s having trouble pushing off,” Hoiberg said.
