Chicago Bulls center Luke Kornet suffered a recent injury in practice that has turned out to essentially be season-ending.
Kornet sustained a left foot and ankle injury during February 21 Bulls practice. Subsequent testing revealed that he has a severe ankle sprain and fracture of his fifth metatarsal.
He is estimated to be out 6-to-8 weeks. The final Bulls game of the regular season is around seven weeks from now.
In 15.5 minutes per game this season, Kornet is averaging 6.0 points.
The Bulls are 20-39 this season and have lost nine of their last 10 games.
