Williams was the fourth overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft. He had a solid rookie season, averaging 9.2 points and 4.6 rebounds per game.
Before the start of the 2021-22 regular season, Chicago made many upgrades to its roster, acquiring DeMar DeRozan and Lonzo Ball among others.
Williams had been expected to play a key role for the team in this year’s campaign. Unfortunately, he was only able to play five games this season before undergoing surgery.
His return could not come at a better time for Chicago. The Bulls are currently reeling, having lost eight of their past 10 games. They are currently fifth in the Eastern Conference with a 41-29 record.
