Wendell Carter Jr. hoping to return after All-Star break, still believes Bulls can make playoffs

CHICAGO — Bulls center Wendell Carter Jr. has been out with a right ankle injury since Jan. 6, and that injury is keeping him out of Friday night’s Rising Stars Challenge at the United Center.

However, Carter is hoping he’ll be back when the Bulls return to the court after the All-Star break on Thursday against the Hornets.

“I’m definitely feeling a lot better,” Carter said at his Rising Stars Challenge media session at Wintrust Arena on Friday morning. I’m continuously doing rehab and therapy on the ankle every day, so I’m just trying to get it feeling right.
