The Chicago Bulls have just provided a key update on the injury of star shooting guard Zach LaVine with regard to the knee injury that may have somewhat hindered him this past season. The team waited until the offseason to address the problem and it now sounds like everything is going according to plan.
According to an official report posted on NBA.com, LaVine's surgery on Tuesday went on without a hitch:
Chicago Bulls guard Zach LaVine underwent successful left knee arthroscopic surgery on Tuesday May 24th at the Cedars-Sinai Kerlan-Jobe Institute in Los Angeles. LaVine is expected to make a full recovery.
This is undeniably great news for both LaVine and the Bulls. The objective now is to get the All-Star two-guard back to rehab and have him ready to go for the start of the 2021-22 season.
This isn't the only reason why the Bulls star has been making headlines of late. With free agency looming, LaVine has been linked to a sensational move to the Los Angeles Lakers in the summer. The 27-year-old himself has decided to stoke the flame by saying how he has “always been a big fan” of the Lakers — not exactly the type of statement you'd like to hear if you're a Bulls fan.
