2018 Fantasy Outlook
Carter comes in at 6-foot-10 and 251 pounds with a nearly a 7-foot-5 wingspan, providing some size at center for the Bulls alongside Lauri Markkanen. Though Carter lacks elite athleticism, his versatility gives him plenty of upside. The rookie can finish in the pick-and-roll, catch-and-shoot threes, work in the post and make good passes. He was also an impressive rebounder at Duke, posting 13.5 boards per 40 minutes. Defensively, Carter's size should help him hold his own in the post, while his quick feet and long arms could help him make switches on the perimeter. He looked more than comfortable during five summer league tilts, averaging 14.6 points, 9.4 rebounds, 3.4 combined blocks/steals and 1.6 assists while shooting 55.1 percent from the field and going 3-of-7 from beyond the arc. Carter also contributed to the overall success of the team, ending up with a plus-31.8 net rating. It’s unclear if he'll be the team’s starting center from Day 1, but it would be surprising if he doesn't at least split time at the position with Robin Lopez. Read Past Outlooks

Carter will miss the rest of the season due to a left thumb injury.
ANALYSIS
Carter, who hasn't played since January 17th, is officially done for the season according to the Bulls. It appears as if the team is airing on the side of caution with their young center as his recovery, to this point, has gone according to plan. While his absence has been a short-term setback for the young team, Carter is on track to be ready for the beginning of the 2019-20 season.
