Chicago Bulls guard Michael Carter-Williams, who is in his first season with the team after coming over from the Milwaukee Bucks in exchange for guard Tony Snell, will be available to play Saturday night against the Los Angeles Clippers after missing the last three games with a knee injury.
MCW is back. Morrow, Canaan inactives.

Carter-Williams, who has had an up and down season with the Bulls, spending some time out of the rotation completely, was starting before injuring his knee. It is not yet known whether he will start tonight or if guard Jerian Grant will continue to start. The 2014 Rookie of the Year has only played in 27 of the Bulls’ 61 games this season, and is averaging 8.1 points, 2.6 assists and 4.6 rebounds per game while shooting 39 percent from the field.
Chicago went 2-1 in Carter-Williams’ absence, including strong wins over the defending champion Cleveland Cavaliers, and the team with the league’s best record, the Golden State Warriors.
