This afternoon, K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reported that Bulls’ forward Thaddeus Young will miss the preseason opener against the Rockets tonight with a lower left leg infection.
This comes as a surprise as Young’s name was being floated around as the starting small forward tonight and he spoke to the media via Zoom after this morning’s shootaround. While it is a preseason game, Chandler Hutchison and rookie Patrick Williams will likely take on the extra minutes.
Currently, there is no time table for Young’s return.
