2019 Fantasy Outlook
A sophomore out of Arkansas, Gafford landed on the Bulls with the 38th overall pick in the 2019 Draft. Last season, the 6-foot-11, 233-pound center was voted onto the First Team All-SEC (Coaches) and SEC All-Defensive Team. He started all 32 of his appearances, averaging 16.9 points on 66.0 percent shooting, 8.7 rebounds and 2.0 blocks. In five summer league appearances, Gafford kept up those numbers, averaging 13.8 points on 68.3 percent shooting, 7.8 rebounds and 2.8 blocks across 24.9 minutes. After Wendell Carter Jr., the Bulls' No. 2 center spot seems to be up for grabs, with Gafford competing against Luke Kornet and Cristiano Felicio. There's a strong chance Gafford will be able to secure the reserve center role, and he could have fantasy relevance in deep leagues as a result. That said, it's unlikely he contributes outside of field-goal percentage, rebounding and shot-blocking. Read Past Outlooks

Facing multi-week absence

Thumb
January 15, 2020
Gafford is expected to miss 2-to-4 weeks with a dislocated right thumb, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
The rookie second-round pick suffered the injury less than two minutes into the first quarter of Wednesday's game against the Wizards and immediately went to the locker room. It's a tough blow for the Bulls, who are already without center Wendell Carter (ankle) for the next month. Luke Kornet, Thaddeus Young and Chandler Hutchison could all see increased frontcourt minutes while Gafford is sidelined.
