The injury bug didn’t take long to strike the Bulls roster. Denzel Valentine has tweaked his Hamstring, according to K.C. Johnson.
While Valentine hopes to practice Saturday, it sounds like he will be out for the first two preseason games.
Valentine is no stranger to the injured list and specifically hamstring problems. Hopefully the time off after a quick ramp-up will help him get back into the rotation for the last two preseason games.
Denzel only played about half the 2019-20 season due to hamstring and ankle ailments. After receiving a qualifying offer from the Bulls, fans were hoping he would show improvement with the extended time off, due to the pandemic, to heal his recurring injuries and be at the peak of his game for the start of the season.
