It’s an unfortunate situation for the rookie. An ACL is a bad injury to have when you’re trying to impress an NBA staff while on a two-way contract.
Lewis was trying to make the Bulls as a potential backup for Bulls forward Patrick Williams. The injury is another setback for a team that missed many minutes of playing time last season with hurt bodies.
Lewis was productive for the Marquette Golden Eagles in college. He averaged 16.8 points per game and 1.1 steals per game last season for Marquette.
