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.
