Daniel Gafford made a strong impression in 22 minutes vs. the Wizards on Thursday, hitting 7-of-8 shots for 15 points, five rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block.
He was only averaging 11.7 minutes entering Thursday, and that doesn't include a DNP-CD vs. the Warriors. Hopefully that changes after tonight with Gafford giving the Bulls a spark off the bench with Lauri Markkanen (health and safety protocols) away from the team. "I really appreciate him staying ready and being professional as a young player," coach Billy Donovan said. "I thought he was a presence defensively at the rim and offensively on the finishes. I thought he played really really well." Wendell Carter Jr. played through a hip injury tonight so we're keeping an eye on Gafford for a lot of reasons. For his career, Gafford blocks 3.3 shots per 36 minutes. Dec 31 8:47 pm (EST)
