The Chicago Bulls expect guard Michael Carter-Williams to miss 4-6 weeks because of a bruised left knee and sprained left wrist.
The team said Tuesday that an MRI showed no structural damage.
Carter-Williams took a hard fall contesting a layup in the second quarter of Monday's win at Brooklyn. Acquired in a trade with Milwaukee on Oct. 17, he is averaging 4.0 points.
The Syracuse product was the 2014 Rookie of the Year after being drafted 11th overall by Philadelphia and was traded to Milwaukee during the 2014-15 season.
>>Pacers Storm Back, Beat Lakers 
Paul George scored 30 points, including Indiana's final 12 of the game to rally the Pacers to a 115-108 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers.
The Lakers trailed by as many as 16 points, but rallied and had their final lead at 108-107 before George put it away.
George made consecutive 18-foot jumpers for a 111-108 lead, then followed through on the opposite end of the floor with the biggest defensive rebound of the game. The Lakers' Jordan Clarkson missed an almost uncontested layup, and it was George who came down with the rebound, sending him to the free throw line to close out the contest.
Monta Ellis had 17 points and CJ Miles scored 16 for the Pacers. Thaddeus Young finished with 14.
Lou Williams scored 19 points for the Lakers and Clarkson had 15.
The Pacers travels to Milwaukee on Wednesday.
