Chandler Hutchison suffers hamstring strain, will be ‘re-evaluated regularly'


A second Bulls sophomore has suffered an offseason injury.

The team announced Thursday that small forward Chandler Hutchison suffered a left hamstring strain while working out. An MRI confirmed the diagnosis, and Hutchison "will be reevaluated regularly as he progresses through his rehabilitation," according to a press release.

It's yet another setback for the 23rd pick in last year's draft, who suffered a season-ending broken toe in late January and played in just 44 games. He finished his rookie season averaging 5.2 points and 4.2 rebounds while shooting 45.9% from the field.

It's also a blow to the Bulls' wing depth, even if the injury appears to be minor and with training camp still three weeks away.

Hutchison is currently penciled in behind Otto Porter on the small forward depth chart, but there's not much behind him. The Bulls have four centers and four point guards on their roster.
