Zach LaVine injury update: Bulls star leaves Friday's game with knee injury

The Chicago Bulls are awaiting the results of a test on Zach LaVine’s knee after he left the Bulls’ game against the Warriors with 8:28 left in the first quarter.

According to The Athletic’s Shams Charania, LaVine will not return with what he describes as a left knee injury.

In 37 games, LaVine is averaging 25.6 points, 4.9 rebounds and 4.3 assists on .491/.412/.872 shooting ranges. The Bulls sit in first place in the Eastern Conference but will have to fight to retain the top spot as Miami, Brooklyn and Milwaukee are all breathing down their necks.

What is Zach LaVine’s injury?

LaVine appeared to be injured just three minutes into Friday’s game against Golden State. With the Warriors ready to get the ball in with 8:28 left in the first quarter, LaVine intentionally fouled Stephen Curry and headed straight for the Bulls locker room.

How long will Zach LaVine be out?

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Bulls are confident the injury is not serious and that LaVine will not miss an extended period.

Under that schedule, Lillard could miss between 19 and 25 games and his potential return could depend on where the Blazers sit in the standings when he’s ready.

There may have been initial concerns about the injury considering LaVine tore his ACL in the same knee in 2017 as a member of the Minnesota Timberwolves.
