Chicago Bulls center Wendell Carter Jr. has had surgery to repair an abdominal muscle injury. The Bulls said the rehabilitation from the Tuesday procedure in Philadelphia is six to eight weeks. They expect him to be ready for the start of training camp. The 6-foot-10 Carter showed promise last season after being drafted with the No. 7 overall pick, averaging 10.3 points and seven rebounds in 44 games before a season-ending left thumb injury.

It’s been widely reported that the Bulls are open to re-signing Lopez and Lopez told me before a road game in Orlando that he’s open to re-signing. That said, I do think it’s more likely that Lopez is gone. He wants, and deserves, to play. And if healthy, Markkanen and Carter are going to play a lot. Yes, you need at least a three- and possibly four-man rotation for the power forward and center. However, Boylen also has talked about trying Markkanen at center and Porter at power forward in some smaller lineups. … So if it’s not Lopez, look for similarly-minded veterans to be added in free agency.

Listen​ up, Bulls​ fans.​ There’s​ a song​ you should hear. You won’t understand it​ unless you’re​ among​ the five​ million​ people​​ in the world fluent in Finnish. But that’s OK. The beat bangs and the chorus is canny. “The chorus is fire,” Bulls center Wendell Carter Jr. said. It’s a song about Lauri Markkanen. The song is titled “Lauri.” It’s a spirited three-minute Finnish rap track composed as an ode to the second-year Bulls forward and Finland native. Just know the chorus will soon be stuck in your head. “Lauri, Lauri, Lauri Markkanen!”
