Bulls Jones helped off with knee injury vs. Nets

CHICAGO — Bulls forward Derrick Jones Jr. had to be helped to the locker room during Wednesday’s game against the Brooklyn Nets after landing awkwardly on his right leg 36 seconds into the game.

The Bulls announced Jones would not return for the remainder of the game due to a right knee injury.

Jones had been in Chicago’s starting lineup the past six games while filling in for Javonte Green, who has been sidelined with a strained groin. Jones is averaging 6.5 points and 3.5 rebounds while shooting 58% in his first season with Chicago.

The Bulls are also missing guard Alex Caruso, who was still in the league’s health and safety protocols before Wednesday’s game. Coach Billy Donovan also did not expect him to play in Friday’s game against the Golden State Warriors.
