Michael Carter-Williams was invisible during Sunday's home loss, going scoreless with one assist and no other stats in eight minutes of action.
Isaiah Canaan was the only Bulls PG to have any success tonight, and as a result he got the lion's share of the minutes (34). Chicago also went briefly to a Jimmy Butler/Dwyane Wade backcourt, which is something we could see more of in Game 5 on Wednesday. Fred Hoiberg played 11 guys tonight, but despite the backcourt problems Denzel Valentine wasn't one of them. Apr 23 - 9:39 PM

Michael Carter-Williams scored two points with three rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and three turnovers in 23 minutes against the Celtics on Friday.

The Bulls missed Rajon Rondo (thumb, wrist) in a big way. Surprisingly, they didn't go with too many no-PG combos until late in the game, but that may change considering how much MCW and Jerian Grant held them back. Plus, coach Fred Hoiberg even played Carter-Williams and Grant next to each other on occasion. MCW probably shouldn't play more than 20 minutes.

Michael Carter-Williams scored nine points with two rebounds, four assists, one steal and three blocks in 27 minutes on Saturday.

Rajon Rondo didn't have his best game, so coach Fred Hoiberg went away from the seasoned vet in this game. While he did soak up the majority of the PG minutes, Carter-Williams did not get any SG minutes in this game. He's not worth owning right now.

Michael Carter-Williams will be the backup point guard on Friday against the Wizards.

That should mean Denzel Valentine will get most of the backup wing minutes. Carter-Williams isn't really worth using in fantasy, especially while Rajon Rondo is actually playing well.
Mar 17 - 5:38 PM

Michael Carter-Williams played 13 minutes with seven points, two rebounds, one assist, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer against the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

If Dwyane Wade (elbow) is going to miss time, MCW is likely going to be getting more minutes. On the other hand, Rajon Rondo finally getting it together means Carter-Williams won't play minutes at the point. Plus, he'll likely have to split minutes with Denzel Valentine. He's not really an add here.
Mar 15 - 11:16 PM

Michael Carter-Williams was the first guard off the bench on Friday with four points, two rebounds, three assists, one steal and one turnover in 19 minutes.

He was the first guard off the bench on a very head-scratching night for the Bulls. If you're thinking about trying to figure out this point guard rotation in Chicago, don't do it. Go buy a Rubik's Cube instead or something. Carter-Williams is not worth owning right now.
Mar 10 - 10:34 PM

Michael Carter-Williams (knee) picked up a DNP-CD on Saturday vs. the Clippers.

He was "available" to play on Saturday, but he's simply not in the rotation right now as the Bulls are using three other point guards. We're taking him off the injury report and you should drop him if you haven't already.
Mar 4 - 11:31 PM

Michael Carter-Williams (knee) is available to play against the Clippers on Saturday.

While he is available, he's not a lock to play. The Bulls have most of their wing depth and MCW is currently the No. 4 point guard on the depth chart. Leave Carter-Williams on the waiver wire.
Mar 4 - 6:52 PM

Michael Carter-Williams (knee) will be a game-time decision on Saturday vs. the Clippers.

Carter-Williams, who has missed three straight games, will "see how he feels after warmups," according to coach Fred Hoiberg. However, even if MCW is available to play, he may not see any court time. With Jerian Grant, Rajon Rondo and Cam Payne all fighting for point guard minutes, Carter-Williams may now find himself on the outside of the rotation looking in.
Mar 4 - 12:38 PM

Michael Carter-Williams (knee) will not play against the Warriors on Thursday.

He did go through a full practice on Wednesday, but the Bulls will keep him out. It's not a lock that MCW is even in the rotation because coach Fred Hoiberg wants to keep Rajon Rondo in the mix while also giving minutes to their young guys.
Mar 2 - 6:19 PM

Michael Carter-Williams (knee) is a game-time call on Thursday vs. the Warriors.

MCW looks like the fourth-string PG right now behind Cameron Payne, Rajon Rondo and Jerian Grant. There's a chance that he could be waived, but there's not enough upside here to consider stashing him in standard leagues. Even if he's available, he may not see the floor.

Michael Carter-Williams (knee) went through a full practice on Wednesday.

His status is still unclear for Thursday against the Warriors. MCW's role is even more unclear with Rajon Rondo playing well and the Bulls wanting to give minutes to Cameron Payne. Carter-Williams can remain on the wire just about everywhere.
Mar 1 - 2:36 PM

The Bulls reportedly are considering waiving Michael Carter-Williams or Isaiah Canaan in order to free up the logjam at the point guard position.

Interestingly, the Bulls reportedly will not be waiving Rajon Rondo, as they feel he's a fit with the second unit and they believe they'll be able to use his contract as a trade chip during the offseason. MCW probably won't have much fantasy value regardless of where he winds up, and the same can be said for Canaan.

Michael Carter-Williams (patellar tendinitis) did not practice on Monday and will miss Tuesday's game vs. Denver.

He still has some pain in his knee and doesn't have a timetable to return right now. With MCW expected to miss more time, Cameron Payne will get a chance to earn a larger role and Denzel Valentine will continue to be relevant in deeper leagues. MCW is a drop candidate in most leagues.
Feb 27 - 1:43 PM

Michael Carter-Williams (patellar tendinitis) is not with the team and will not play Saturday vs. the Cavs.

Despite starting on Friday night, MCW played just eight minutes. This injury may have been a reason for his lack of playing time and production. Either way, Carter-Williams is averaging just 5.5 points and 2.7 assists over the Bulls last six games, five of which he started. If you were looking for an excuse to cut him lose, this latest injury should be it. With MCW out, Cameron Payne, making his Bulls debut, and Denzel Valentine should see additional minutes.
