Top Zach LaVine News

  • Bulls' Zach LaVine: Undergoes surgery

    LaVine underwent season-ending surgery on his right foot Thursday, Will Gottlieb of AllCHGO.com reports.

    LaVine's need for a procedure was announced last week, and Bulls Vice President of Basketball Operations Arturas Karnisovas said Thursday that the 28-year-old remains on a recovery timetable of 4-to-6 months following his procedure. LaVine wasn't traded by Chicago ahead of Thursday's trade deadline, which wasn't particularly surprising given his limited trade value due to his season-ending injury. He'll now shift his focus toward his lengthy recovery process, but it seems likely that he'll be ready to return to the court for training camp ahead of the 2024-25 season.

  • Bulls' Zach LaVine: Getting surgery, out for season

    The Bulls announced Saturday that LaVine will undergo season-ending surgery on his right foot next week and will require 4-to-6 months of recovery time.

    Though he had healed from an ankle sprain that plagued him earlier in the season, LaVine hadn't played since Jan. 18 due to the foot injury. After sitting out for the past two and a half weeks, however, LaVine hadn't made enough notable progress in his recovery from the foot injury, prompting the Bulls to send him in for surgery. LaVine's upcoming surgery likely ends any potential trade discussions centering around the 28-year-old leading up to next Thursday's trade deadline, and he'll wrap up his 10th NBA season with averages of 19.5 points, 5.2 rebounds, 3.9 assists, 2.4 three-pointers, 0.8 steals and 0.3 blocks in 34.9 minutes per game over 25 appearances on 45.2 percent shooting from the field and 85.4 percent shooting from the free-throw line. With LaVine out of the picture for the rest of the 2023-24 season, Coby White, DeMar DeRozan and Nikola Vucevic should continue to dominate the usage on offense, while supporting players such as Ayo Dosunmu and Alex Caruso will continue to see heavy minutes in the starting five.

  • Bulls' Zach LaVine: Out at least another week

    Coach Billy Donovan said Friday that LaVine (foot) will miss at least another week of game action, K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    Donovan said that LaVine's right ankle sprain has healed, but the 28-year-old is dealing with discomfort in his right foot, the same issue that forced him to miss 17 games earlier this season. As a result, LaVine will be unavailable for at least three more matchups. Ayo Dosunmu should continue to see additional playing time while LaVine is sidelined.

  • Bulls' Zach LaVine: Out another week

    LaVine (ankle) will miss at least another week of action, Joe Cowley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    LaVine has been sidelined since spraining his right ankle back on Jan. 18, but his right foot is also bothering him and is related to a previous issue. Coach Billy Donovan said LaVine would be re-evaluated in another week, meaning the earliest he could see the floor is Feb. 3 against the Kings. Ayo Dosunmu has averaged 30.0 minutes over his last three games and will likely continue to see an uptick in playing time.

  • Bulls' Zach LaVine: Out 1-to-2 weeks

    LaVine is expected to miss 1-to-2 weeks after undergoing an MRI on his sprained right ankle Friday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    LaVine suffered this injury during Thursday's 116-110 win over the Raptors, and based on the 1-to-2-week estimated recovery timeline, he'll miss at least the next three games. While LaVine is sidelined, DeMar DeRozan, Coby White and Nikola Vucevic should absorb most of the usage, while supporting players such as Alex Caruso, Ayo Dosunmu and Patrick Williams (ankle) could have higher minutes ceilings.

  • Bulls' Zach LaVine: Unlikely to play Saturday

    LaVine is doubtful for Saturday's game against the Grizzlies due to a right ankle sprain.

    LaVine sustained an ankle injury Thursday and will likely miss at least one game after being diagnosed with a sprain. Patrick Williams (ankle) and Ayo Dosunmu (shoulder) are candidates to take on increased roles against Memphis.

  • Bulls' Zach LaVine: Dealing with ankle issue

    LaVine left Thursday's game against the Raptors for a second time with a right ankle issue and never returned, K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reports. He finished with eight points (3-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three assists and two rebounds across 24 minutes.

    LaVine rolled his ankle at the beginning of the third quarter, but he briefly returned to the game before checking out for good with 7:23 remaining in the fourth quarter. He clearly looked uncomfortable after the initial injury, and it's possible he could miss some time. For now, LaVine should be considered questionable for Saturday against the Grizzlies. Patrick Williams and Ayo Dosunmu would likely take on larger roles if LaVine ends up sitting Saturday.

  • Bulls' Zach LaVine: Tweaks ankle Thursday

    LaVine appeared to tweak his right ankle during Thursday's game against the Raptors and went to the locker room, Mike McGraw of the Chicago Daily Herald reports.

    LaVine was driving to the basket and rolled his right ankle pretty good. He limped straight to the locker room with 10:39 left in the third quarter and wasn't putting much weight on the injured ankle. The Bulls haven't released anything official, so LaVine should be considered questionable to return.

  • Bulls' Zach LaVine: Available to return

    LaVine (ankle) is available to return to Thursday's game against the Raptors, Darnell Mayberry of The Athletic reports.

    LaVine rolled his ankle with 10:39 left in the third quarter and limped to the locker room in discomfort, but the TNT broadcast announced that he would be available to return after just a few minutes. For now, it appears that he's going to be fine.
