DALLAS, TX — As if the Bulls needed any more bad luck, tonight’s contest in Dallas could prove to be such.

With 8:36 to play in the third quarter of tonight’s matchup with Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks, Bulls’ center Wendell Carter Jr. was escorted to the locker room by the team’s training staff with an apparent ankle injury.

After rolling his ankle on his way down from a shot attempt in the paint and being helped off of the floor in obvious pain, Carter Jr. was taken to the locker room in a wheelchair.

UPDATE: According to the Chicago Bulls, Carter’s X-Rays came back negative, but he was ruled out for the remainder of tonight’s game.

This is a developing story, and we will update this story with more details as they become available.
