Chandler Hutchison Set to Return vs. Boston
The Chicago Bulls forward could return tonight vs. the Boston Celtics.
Finally, the Bulls will be adding some much-added wing depth to the rotation tonight as Chandler Hutchison will suit up at the United Center. Hutch has battled injuries throughout his young career so far, but he does bring a defensive presence and size the Bulls need. Since Otto Porter Jr. and Chandler Hutchison went out with injuries, the Bulls have been starting 6’4 Kris Dunn. Dunn has done a decent job, but since he’s usually tasked with guarding the other team’s best player or a bigger offensive player, he finds himself in foul trouble often.
Hopefully, this go around Hutch can stay healthy and show why the Bulls took him with the 22nd pick in the 2018 NBA Draft. Hutch appeared in one game for the Windy City Bulls G-League team and didn’t disappoint. Though he did not shoot the ball well, he showed explosiveness and was tenacious on defense.
With the Chicago Bulls playing the Boston Celtics tonight, Hutch will be much needed. Boston has true size in their lineup with Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown. Putting a good defender like Hutch on those guys can help the Bulls chances for a W. He may not be able to stop them, but hopefully he can bother them.
