The night had already started badly for Chicago, heavily beaten against the Warriors, when Zach LaVine grimaced after grabbing a rebound early in the first quarter.
Hit in the left knee, he then went to the locker room and did not return to the meeting. He is already forfeited for tonight’s game in Boston since he did not travel with the rest of the team and he will undergo additional examinations during the day.
His coach confided after the meeting that the former Wolves showman felt recurring pain in his knee.
“The MRI will tell a lot more once it has been examined,” said Billy Donovan. « I don’t want to speculate. He fell a bit oddly, and he’s feeling some discomfort there right now and the medical staff want to take a look at it. He didn’t feel able to come back. »
Precisely, the MRI revealed no lesion according to NBC Chicago, and these are pains that appear from time to time since he had surgery. The staff and the player should jointly determine if a rest period is necessary. He will miss the next two trips, against the Celtics and Grizzlies, and the Bulls have indicated he will be reviewed again next week.
