That’s some sprained right ankle David Nwaba suffered.

“It’s still not fully healed,” the Bulls guard admitted Saturday.

Sprained Nov. 4, the ankle proved healthy enough for Nwaba to return Friday after missing 12 games with an active stint at both ends that featured nine points, nine rebounds and six assists in a 107-106 loss to the Kings.

“It was probably one of my worst sprains,” Nwaba said. “I didn’t think I’d be out for this long. I was hoping to be out a week at most. For me to be out four weeks, it’s been an issue. I’m going to bounce back.”

That’s been the story of Nwaba’s career. Undrafted in 2016 out of Cal Poly, Nwaba split time between the Lakers and G League last season. He is paying dividends for the Bulls after they took a low-risk flier by claiming him off waivers last summer.

“I’m using this as an opportunity for me to grow as an individual,” the 6-foot-4 Nwaba said. “It’s an opportunity for all of us by competing.”

Nwaba, 24, had earned a starting spot before his ankle injury, hearing his name called three times. Now he’s coming off the bench and projects to remain doing so, particularly with Zach LaVine returning at some point.

“It’s just about staying aggressive and playing my game,” Nwaba said. “I try to bring energy. Whether I start or come off the bench, it doesn’t make any difference to me.”
