LaVine (quadriceps) is expected to participate Sunday in a televised H-O-R-S-E shooting competition between NBA and WNBA players and recent NBA alumni, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. All eight players taking part in the competition will film their shot attempts at indoor or outdoor locations at home, with LaVine set to take on retired NBA legend Paul Pierce in a first-round matchup. LaVine missed the Bulls' final five games before the NBA suspended its season March 12 due to the coronavirus pandemic, but his involvement in this weekend's event suggests he's healthy now after having more than a month off to recover from the quad injury.
LaVine (quad) is doubtful for Thursday's contest against the Magic. As expected, LaVine will probably need some more time to recover from his strained left quad, which has kept him out since Mar. 2. Assuming he's out Thursday, his next chance to play arrives Saturday against the Heat.
LaVine (quadriceps) said after putting in a workout Tuesday that he feels "good" and hopes to return to game action within the next week or so, Cody Westerlund of 670TheScore.com reports. LaVine was idle for Tuesday's 108-103 win over the Cavaliers, marking his fifth consecutive absence on account of a left quad strain. While he seems to be encouraged by his progress, the fact that LaVine didn't describe his recovery timeline in terms of games suggests that he's probably unlikely to play in the Bulls' next contest Thursday in Orlando. A more official update on his status for that game should arrive later Wednesday, when the Bulls release their newest injury report.
LaVine (quad) has been ruled out of Tuesday's game against the Cavs, Darnell Mayberry of The Athletic reports. It'll be the fifth straight absence for LaVine, who was initially hoping to get back on the floor Tuesday night. He'll miss at least one more game, however, with his sights now set on a potential return Thursday in Orlando. The Bulls appear poised to start Coby White and Denzel Valentine in the backcourt Tuesday, with Tomas Satoransky shifting to the bench.
Coach Jim Boylen said that LaVine (quadriceps) won't play in Sunday's game against the Nets, K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reports. After missing three straight games with a left quad strain, LaVine was able to go through portions of Saturday's practice, prompting the Bulls to upgrade him to questionable for Sunday. The Bulls apparently want to see the star guard go through a full workout before clearing him to play however, so LaVine looks like he'll have to wait until at least Tuesday's game against the Cavaliers before returning to action. LaVine's continued absence should open up another start on the wing for Denzel Valentine.
