On Wednesday, Nov. 23, Michael Carter-Williams was examined again by a Bulls hand specialist, John Fernandez. The following is a statement from Dr. Fernandez and Bulls Team Physician Dr. Brian Cole.
“Michael still has a significant amount of wrist swelling. A new MRI and CT scan were ordered with findings consistent with a significant wrist sprain as initially diagnosed. The CT scan identified a small "bone chip" consistent with the initial injury mechanism. The course of treatment remains the same, including immobilization and rest until symptoms permit play (4-6 week estimate). His cast will be removed and the wrist will be reassessed by Dr. Fernandez for symptom improvement in two weeks."
Carter-Williams originally suffered the injury on Oct. 31 at Brooklyn.
