Chicago Bulls fans are sick of talking about injuries. Every player on the Bulls roster has at some point missed time this season. Some due to injury, some due to COVID-19, or both. With the recent injuries to Alex Caruso, Lonzo Ball, and Derrick Jones Jr., it seems this injury saga will never end. But Bulls fans did get a bit of a morale boost this morning. Joe Cowley from the Chicago Sun-Times reports that Patrick Williams could see some regular-season action before playing in the postseason.

Having Patrick Williams back before the end of the season would obviously be welcome news. Given the state of the roster, the Bulls need all the help they can get. It is important to remember that Williams underwent surgery to repair a dislocated left wrist that he injured during a game in November. At the time, the Bulls ruled out Williams for the rest of the season. This is the first inkling of information that gives a glimmer of hope.

The Bulls' 2020 first-round draft pick has not had a chance to build off a decent rookie season in which he averaged 9.2 PPG and 4.6 RPG on 48% shooting. He appeared in only five games this season before the wrist injury.
