Season probably over for Patrick Williams… | NBA

Five small games and then go. After contact in the air with Mitchell Robinson last night, Patrick Williams landed on his wrist and the Chicago winger had to leave his comrades behind.

The fault of the pivot of the Knicks, to prevent his opponent from dunking, had been penalized with a flagrant fault, but the penalty is much heavier for the Bulls.

ESPN announces that Patrick Williams suffers from a perilunary carpal dislocation, an extremely rare problem which can have serious functional problems. As a result, the winger is likely to miss the rest of the campaign, with Billy Donovan clarifying that a return to the playoffs may be on the cards, at best.

The franchise for its part announced that its player had been operated, speaking of a period of four to six months in stride to recover. But this kind of injury takes a long time to be fully forgotten.

For the 4th choice of the 2020 Draft, it is a terrible blow, when he had to assume a role of essential defensive stabilizer, as a strong winger, in the Illinois troop for his second season in the NBA.

“It will be a challenge, there is no doubt about it”, commented Billy Donovan, the coach of the Bulls. “We are a bit small at this position (strong winger) and we played small in this position… and when you also lose a guy like him, who can defend in a lot of different positions and who has the strength and size to face players who work low, like Patrick can. do, it really hurts. “
