Chicago Bulls Lose Key Player To Knee Injury For Another Month

More injury troubles for the Chicago Bulls, as they've now lost a key wing player for a more extended period due to a knee injury. 

The Bulls have announced that Javonte Green will undergo "an arthroscopic debridement of his right knee", and while they say he'll be re-evaluated in about two weeks, NBA Insider Adrian Wojnarowski reports that they hope to get the shooting guard/small forward back in about a month. 

Green has already missed 10 of the last 13 games due to the knee issue, and 13 of the last 19 games. Hopefully this procedure will get his knee right. 

The 29-year-old is averaging 5.9 points and 2.9 rebounds in 16 minutes per night in his 28 games. He's shooting 38.2% from long-range. 

His hustle off the bench has been a key on the defensive end, as Green has been among the NBA’s deflection leaders this season. 

It's another frustrating knee injury for the Bulls, who of course are without Lonzo Ball for the last full calendar year due to his knee woes, and also have seen Zach LaVine dealing with knee problems at times.
