Bulls' Zach LaVine: Undergoing scope in coming weeks
LaVine (knee) will undergo a scope procedure on his left knee in the coming weeks, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
This isn't unexpected news, as it was known that LaVine would likely need surgery during the offseason, but it hadn't been confirmed until Thursday. He began dealing with the issue in December, and his numbers began trailing off as a result. That said, he was still able to make a second straight All-Star game and appear in 67 games. LaVine is an unrestricted free agent this summer, which will soon become the bigger storyline assuming everything goes as planned with his knee surgery.... See More ... See Less
Bulls' Zach LaVine: Headed for knee scope
LaVine (COVID-19 protocols) is expected to undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left knee during the offseason, Joe Cowley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Though LaVine's entry into the NBA's health and safety protocols Tuesday resulted in him sitting out the Bulls' season-ending loss Wednesday in Game 5 of the team's first-round series with the Bucks, it was lingering discomfort in his left knee that hampered him for most of the second half of the campaign. LaVine wasn't forced to miss extensive time because of the knee issue, which first cropped up in December. LaVine's defensive efficiency suffered as a result of the injury, and his offensive numbers also trended down after a promising start to the season. After the calendar flipped to January, LaVine averaged 23.0 points and 2.15 three-pointers on 45.3 percent shooting from the field and 37 percent shooting from downtown; prior to that, he averaged 26.0 points and 3.0 triples while shooting 50 and 41 percent from the field and distance, respectively. According to Cowley, LaVine's knee problem isn't considered degenerative, and an arthroscopic procedure should put him back to full strength well in advance of training camp in the fall. LaVine is ticketed for unrestricted free agency and will still be well-positioned to land a long-term deal north of $100 million.... See More ... See Less
Bulls' Zach LaVine: Not available for Game 5
LaVine (COVID-19 health and safety protocols) has been ruled out for Wednesday's Game 5 matchup with the Bucks in Milwaukee.
LaVine's absence comes as little surprise after he entered the protocols Tuesday, presumably as a result of testing positive for the virus. The 27-year-old was previously in the protocols in December for 11 days, but it's unclear if his bout with the virus is as severe this time around. In any case, LaVine will be hard-pressed to make it back for a potential Game 6 on Friday in Chicago, should the Bulls pull out an upset on the road in Game 5 to extend the series. In addition to LaVine, the Bulls will also be without Alex Caruso (concussion) for Game 5, which likely puts Ayo Dosunmu and Coby White in line to handle huge roles out of the backcourt....

Bulls' Zach LaVine: Enters COVID-19 protocols
LaVine entered the NBA's health and safety protocols Tuesday and will likely be sidelined for Wednesday's Game 5 in Milwaukee, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
On it's own, this is obviously a huge blow for Chicago, who faces elimination, but the Bulls could also be without Alex Caruso (concussion) and have already lost Lonzo Ball (knee) for the season, so youngsters Coby White and Ayo Dosunmu will likely both play critical roles during Game 5. As for LaVine, it's his third time landing in the league's protocols over the last two seasons, and he was sidelined for multiple games on each occasion, so if the Bulls force a Game 6, their All-Star swingman would likely remain out, though he hasn't even been ruled out for Game 5 yet and is officially listed as questionable. While White, Dosunmu and others are expected to have increased roles, the Bulls presumably will lean heavily on DeMar DeRozan in LaVine's likely absence.... See More ... See Less
Bulls' Zach LaVine: Scores 24 but Bulls fall in Game 4
LaVine finished Sunday's 119-95 loss to the Bucks with 24 points (8-18 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 6-6 FT), five rebounds and 13 assists in 42 minutes.
While the Bulls were able to steal Game 2 in Milwaukee, they've now dropped each of the subsequent two contests in blowout fashion. Individually, it was a bounceback effort for LaVine, who had just 15 points in Game 3, but on the whole it's been a relatively unimpressive series. LaVine and the Bulls will look to stave off elimination in Game 5 on Wednesday back in Milwaukee.... See More ... See Less
Bulls' Zach LaVine: Limited impact in loss Friday
LaVine racked up 15 points (6-13 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 1-1 FT), five rebounds, five assists and one steal in 31 minutes during Friday's 111-81 loss to Milwaukee.
LaVine has reached the 20-point mark just once in the current series against the Bucks and has struggled to cope with Milwaukee's physicality. His offensive contributions are huge for Chicago since he averaged 24.4 points per game during the regular season, but he hasn't been able to deliver so far in the current series. The Bulls need more from him to get past the first round.... See More ... See Less
Bulls' Zach LaVine: Scores 20 points in win
LaVine posted 20 points (7-13 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), one rebound, three assists and one steal across 43 minutes during Wednesday's 114-110 win over the Bucks.
LaVine was one of three Bulls to finish with 20-plus points in the contest, though he trailed significantly behind leading scorer DeMar DeRozan (41 points). The veteran guard shot 7-for-13 from the field in the win, which was a significant improvement over his 6-for-19 mark in Game 1. LaVine wasn't as effective on the boards, however, grabbing just one rebound Wednesday after snatching 10 boards in the first game of the series.... See More ... See Less
Bulls' Zach LaVine: Scores 18 with 10 boards
LaVine closed Sunday's 93-86 loss to Milwaukee with 18 points (6-19 FG, 2-10 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 10 rebounds, three assists, one block and one steal over 37 minutes.
LaVine salvaged a decent fantasy line, but it never felt like he truly settled in after Chicago fell behind early and struggled from the field throughout the night. LaVine, Nikola Vucevic (9-27 FG) and DeMar DeRozan (6-25 FG) combined to hit only 21 of their 71 field-goal attempts and went 4-of-22 from beyond the arc. LaVine will look to bounce back in Game 2 on Wednesday night before the series shifts to Chicago.... See More ... See Less
Bulls' Zach LaVine: Won't play in finale
LaVine (knee) is out Sunday against the Timberwolves.
Unsurprisingly, LaVine, DeMar DeRozan (rest) and Nikola Vucevic (rest) will not play in the finale with the No. 6 seed locked up. Plenty of bench players will see massively expanded roles.... See More ... See Less
Bulls' Zach LaVine: Scores 23 despite knee issues
LaVine registered 23 points (9-15 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT), four rebounds and seven assists in 30 minutes during Friday's 133-117 loss to the Hornets.
LaVine has been dealing with a knee issue for quite a while now, and while the injury has been affecting his explosiveness, that wasn't noticeable Friday since he registered at least 20 points for the eighth time over his last 10 appearances. While he's put up 23.6 points, 4.1 assists and 3.6 rebounds per game over that 10-game sample, it's also worth noting that those figures are a small downgrade compared to what he's done over the course of the entire regular season.With only one game left in the regular season, the Bulls could choose to rest him up so he can be close to full strength come playoff time....

Bulls' Zach LaVine: Available against Hornets
LaVine (knee) is available for Friday's game against the Hornets, Joe Cowley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
LaVine has been dealing with left knee discomfort recently, but he'll be able to play through the issue once again Friday. The 27-year-old has averaged 20.4 points, 3.8 rebounds and 3.0 assists in 34.6 minutes per game across his last five appearances.... See More ... See Less
Bulls' Zach LaVine: Expects to play Friday
LaVine (knee) is listed as probable Friday against Charlotte.
LaVine continues to deal with some discomfort in his left knee, but there's been no indication that he plans to miss time with the playoffs approaching. While he did sit out Tuesday against Milwaukee on the front end of a back-to-back, LaVine was back in action for Wednesday's loss to the Celtics. He finished that game with only seven points on 2-of-9 shooting in 27 minutes of action.... See More ... See Less
Bulls' Zach LaVine: Ice-cold shot in loss
LaVine supplied seven points (2-9 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT), two rebounds, four assists and one block across 27 minutes during Wednesday's 117-94 loss to the Celtics.
LaVine suffered through one of his worst shooting performances of the season in Wednesday's loss. The normally accurate guard laid a goose egg beyond the arc and only connected on two shots overall.... See More ... See Less
