Chicago Bulls point guard Michael Carter-Williams has a bone chip in his left wrist and will be re-evaluated in two weeks.
Carter-Williams visited with team doctors Wednesday, and a CT scan revealed the small bone chip.
Carter-Williams, who Branden Albert Authentic Womens Jersey has been out since injuring his left knee (bone bruise) and wrist in a win over the Brooklyn Nets on Oct. 31, is wearing a cast on his left arm, instead of the brace he had been wearing since the injury occurred. On Friday, the team estimated he will miss four to six weeks from the date he suffered the injury.
On Friday, Westbrook’s triple-double brought back statistical memories of one by Robertson (whose record of 181 career triple-doubles is safe … for now). Saturday’s could be hooked to Magic Johnson. Westbrook and Johnson are the only players in NBA history to have a 15-assist triple-double on consecutive days.
Westbrook has 15 career 30-point triple-doubles, passing Michael Jordan Brandon Doughty Authentic Womens Jersey for the second-most such games over the past 30 seasons. LeBron James has the most with 20.
It’s Westbrook’s fourth game this season with at least 30 points, 15 rounds and 10 assists. The only player with more in a season, per research by the Elias Sports Bureau, is Oscar Robertson, who had 10 in the 1961-1962 season.
More via Elias research: Westbrook is the first player to have at least 36 points, 18 assists and 12 rebounds since Robertson had 42, 18 and 15 in a 152-132 win against the Philadelphia Warriors. Also notable from that game: Wilt Chamberlain scored 65 points in a losing effort.
Asked to assess where his team is after Friday’s game against the Spurs, Stevens said, “We are playing better. I don’t know exactly where to put [the Spurs] on the spectrum of where we ultimately need to be, but we’re getting better.”
His players clearly yearn to play with the coolness and confidence the Spurs displayed late in a hostile environment.
