Williams, 20, was the fourth overall pick in the 2020 draft.

In 81 games with the Bulls, Williams has averaged 9.1 points, 4.4 rebounds, and 1.3 assists on 49/39/74 shooting splits.

The Bulls will be at a major disadvantage without Williams – and will likely need to run three guards in the starting lineup to make up for his absence.

We’re a little bit smaller at that position and we’ve played smaller there … but when you lose a guy like that that can guard a lot of different positions and has got the strength and size to deal with post-up players, like Patrick does, it definitely hurts,” Bulls’ head coach Billy Donovan said Friday, via ESPN.

The Bulls will look to get back on track on Saturday in a 8PM EST matchup against the San Antonio Spurs.
