Bulls Provide Update on Zach LaVine Knee Injury


Some good news and some "meh" news for Chicago Bulls fans today. Zach LaVine had an MRI on his knee this morning, after injuring it during last night's game against Golden State. The results showed no structural damage, no major injury. However, they will "proceed with caution" and he will be re-evaluated next week.

LaVine has had stiffnees in the knee, so the Bulls, and LaVine, will take no chances, and be cautious with his return. In fact, the knee has flared up on him occasionally ever since he underwent ACL surgery in 2017.

A timeline for his return will be determined after they give it a few days to settle down. The Bulls are saying he isn't expected to miss significant time. Chicago plays tonight in Boston, and Monday in Memphis; safe to say LaVine will miss those two games. Their next contest is Wednesday at home against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The 26-year-old has paired with DeMar DeRozan to help lead the Bulls into contender status this season, sitting atop the Eastern Conference at 27-13. LaVine is averaging 24.9 points, 4.8 rebounds, 4.2 assists, and 41.2% shooting from three-point range.
