Cristiano Felicio, who has yet to land on the active roster this season, broke his right wrist after falling in Monday's practice, according to coach Jim Boylen. The Bulls' coach said Felicio will miss four to eight weeks with the injury.

"We had the X-ray. It did not show up on the X-ray. Then we had the CT scan and it showed up on the CT scan," Boylen said. "We're going to do an MRI (Wednesday) just to let them give us a little more certainty on maybe how much separation there is in there and how much time it will be."

Felicio is in the third season of a four-year $32 million deal. He has played sparingly the past two seasons. Boylen said Felicio told him he didn't think anything of the initial pain from the fall but it started throbbing overnight.

"I'm very disappointed for him," Boylen said. "Hopefully we can get him back soon."
