Report: Denzel Valentine to miss 2 weeks due to ankle injury
Chicago Bulls rookie Denzel Valentine will miss at least two weeks following a left ankle sprain suffered in Monday’s 93-91 preseason loss against the Milwaukee Bucks, head coach Fred Hoiberg told ESPN’s Nick Friedell.
Valentine played 11 minutes and went 2-for-5 shooting while dishing out two assists and grabbing one rebound.
The forward played a well-rounded game and is expected to be an important contributor off the bench due to his court vision and playmaking ability.
Bulls are running a lot of stuff through Denzel Valentine. He looks like he'll be a big contributor off the bench this year. #SampleSize
