According to Joe Cowley of the Chicago Sun-Times, Chicago Bulls’ forward Chandler Hutchison will be out for quite some time.

Hutchison has experienced a rough go of things in the league ever since the Bulls selected him with the 22nd pick in the 2018 NBA Draft. He’s battled injuries, inconsistent playing time, and COVID-19 during his stint in Chicago. Over three seasons, Hutchison has only appeared in 79 games for the Bulls.

Given the vague nature of this report, it’s hard to speculate the reason behind Hutchison’s absence. As outlined in the excerpt below, Billy Donovan did not go into specifics about the conversations he’s had with Hutchison. Whatever the case may be, this new development certainly won’t help Hutchison’s potential trade value since he’s sitting out and has not consistently appeared in games for the Bulls.

Whatever the issue is, it’s unfortunate for both sides. Hutchison most likely wanted to work himself into the rotation and surely Artūras Karnišovas, Marc Eversley, and Billy Donovan wanted to evaluate as much talent on the roster they could.
