Felicio suffered the injury while falling during practice Monday. An initial X-ray didn't reveal a break, but a followup CT scan did, Boylen said. Felicio will undergo an MRI on Wednesday, after which the Bulls expect to have more certainty on his recovery timeline. 

"I'm very disappointed for him," Boylen said.

Felicio, 27, hadn't yet appeared in any of the Bulls' first 10 games, drawing an inactive designation in each game. He's in the third season of a four-year, $32-million contract that he signed in July 2017. He has been disappointing since signing the deal and averaged just 4.0 points and 3.6 rebounds in 12.4 minutes in 60 games last season. 

Felicio was buried on the depth chart this season after the Bulls' additions of Thad Young and Luke Kornet in free agency this past summer. The Bulls also drafted center Daniel Gafford in the second round in June.
