The Chicago Bulls announced today that forward Wendell Carter Jr. will be sidelined for at least a month due to a severe right quad contusion.

Carter Jr. suffered the injury in practice on January 20th and has been absent from the lineup ever since. According to Rob Schaefer of NBC Sports Chicago, the injury took place on a “freak collision” between Carter Jr. and Denzel Valentine.

Head coach Billy Donovan did not lay out a specific plan on how the Bulls will replace Carter Jr. in the lineup, but it will likely be by committee. Daniel Gafford has been starting in his place as of late, so the Bulls will need him, Lauri Markkanen, and Thaddeus Young to step up their play at the 5-spot.
