The questions surrounding Bulls forward Patrick Williams continued on Wednesday, and coach Billy Donovan had some very interesting comments, including pointing out the innate aggressiveness already of Dalen Terry compared to Williams.

Bulls will ramp up minutes for starters throughout preseason schedule, Billy Donovan says. Expect shorter stints tonight, not guys’ normal rotation. Donovan will check in with players at half and gauge how they’re feeling – 7:56 PM

@rob_schaef
Billy Donovan says pregame that Bulls will try out different guys at point guard spot throughout preseason. Again mentions Goran Dragic, Ayo Dosunmu, Coby White and Alex Caruso — but noted he’s comfortable with most anyone bringing ball up – 7:53 PM

Bulls first-round pick Dalen Terry going through his first pregame routine.
Terry said at the team’s morning shootaround he didn’t feel like he was playing his first NBA game tonight.

Media dining has been raised from $8 to $11 … because nothing screams old melons, mystery meat and a starch like the Bulls. Hey Bulls, internet still free? Asking for a friend. pic.twitter.com/mYwAV4KSHE7:35 PM

The one strength Bulls rookie Dalen Terry showed throughout training camp? His willingness to do whatever was asked. That will continue, even if it means some G-League stints to get minutes in the regular season.

Willie Green says Brandon Ingram (left fifth toe soreness) and CJ McCollum (right ankle soreness) are both game-time decisions for tonight’s preseason opener against the Chicago Bulls.
“Probably not” for BI but more of a true game-time decision for CJ. – 2:07 PM

The 2022-23 GM Survey lacks hype. That’s fine. New Orleans should provide it.
