Chicago Bulls guard C.J. Watson sprained his left elbow in the fourth quarter of last night’s game big win in the home opener versus the Memphis Grizzlies.

He was evaluated by Bulls head team physician Dr. Brian Cole and Dr. Greg Nicholson of Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush.

Watson will undergo an MRI today and his status will be determined once all medical information has been gathered. If you think Derrick Rose was playing heavy minutes and carrying this team before- that will only increase now.

Watson isn’t the most important player on the Bulls’ Bench Mobb, but he is a vital player in relation to the Rose, the reigning MVP. If this injury is indeed serious, look for the Bulls to sign someone.
