Chicago Bulls' Zach LaVine Suffers Ligament Tear

Chicago Bulls Zach LaVine is going to try and tough it out this season. The star guard has suffered a torn ligament on his non-shooting hand and won't be going for surgery any time soon. LaVine is determined to play through the injury.

It's a small tear for LaVine in his thumb according to reports. The Bulls are off to their best start since 1996 and look like a contender out of the Eastern Conference early on this season. The additions of Lonzo Ball and DeMar DeRozan are paying off and the chemistry is building in the Windy City.

The 26-year-old LaVine is building off his first all-star season and looks like he's developing into a superstar in this league. So far he's averaged 25.5 ppg, 5.3 rpg, 4.8 apg, while shooting 44.4% from deep.

While it's been an easy road so far for the Bulls, their schedule gets really tough over the next few weeks. The team is scheduled to play 12 of their next 13 games against playoff teams and the other game is against the Golden State Warriors. Let's see how LaVine's hand holds up against some of the league's best.
