Chicago: Operation and long absence for Patrick Williams

It’s a blow to the Chicago Bulls and their coach Billy Donovan. Beyond the narrow loss conceded last night against the New York Knicks, their first since the start of the season (103-104), the Illinois franchise has lost an element of its workforce for several months. Gone in contact in the air with the pivot of the Knicks Mitchell Robinson, Patrick Williams is badly landed on the floor, his left wrist violently hitting the ground. The Chicago winger then had to immediately leave the field in order to take exams, the results of which were absolutely nothing to reassure. Indeed, according to information from ESPN reporter Adrian Wojnarowski, the Bulls will not be able to count on the services of Patrick Williams for the remainder of the regular season, which will end next April.

Donovan hopes Williams will return for playoffs

These examinations brought to light an unusual, if not rare injury. The Bulls winger suffers from a perilunar carpal dislocation, an injury that will require an operation scheduled in a very short time. However, this injury could pose a problem for Patrick Williams in the future since it can cause functional problems. Fourth choice of the Draft in 2020 and very promising element of the Chicago Bulls workforce especially in terms of defensive tasks, the native of Charlotte saw a terrible halt with this injury which will remove him from the field for more long months and with the possibility of never recovering all of his faculties. Billy Donovan, for his part, remains hopeful of recovering his protégé in time for the play-offs, if the Bulls manage to maintain their momentum and validate their ticket for the end of the season.
