Chandler Hutchison Sidelined Until All-Star Break

Bulls rookie Chandler Hutchison won’t play again until after the All-Star break because of an injury to his right foot, the team announced on its website.

Hutchison has been diagnosed with an acute injury to a sesamoid bone that he suffered in Wednesday’s game. He will wear a walking boot for the next two to four weeks, and his condition will be re-evaluated during the break.

The 22nd player taken in this year’s draft, Hutchison has appeared in 44 games, starting 14, and is averaging 5.2 points and 4.2 rebounds in about 20 minutes per night. His absence may open more playing time for Jabari Parker, whom the Bulls would like to trade before the February 7 deadline.

    More injuries for these baby Bulls, WOW. Never seen anything like it. Carter, Markannen, Dunn, Portis have ALL/WILL missed significant time this year. Start Jabari at the 3, increase his trade value I guess.
