Chuck's Daily Check In - 10.2.2019
Chuck Shares Updates from Day 1 of Training Camp along with News from around the NBA
The leading story line of the day at the Advocate Training Center was delivered by Head Coach Jim Boylen:
"In practice, Wendell Carter sprained his left ankle. As of this moment there's no swelling, little soreness. We expect him to be day to day. Daniel Gafford, right elbow hyperextension. We'll evaluate him further as the day goes on and see how that feels." - Coach Boylen
Day 2 on Wednesday... What to look for: Coach Boylen and his staff will run different sets and looks as their goal is to establish combinations on the floor to match their strengths and chemistry.
Tomas Satoransky on joining the Bulls and Head Coach Jim Boylen: "It's a lot of energy there. He runs up and down talking to each player. I love this type of communication when the coach is with you."
