It looks like the Chicago Bulls will be without Zach LaVine and Lonzo Ball for the foreseeable future. Head coach Billy Donovan said neither player will travel on the team’s upcoming three-game road trip.
Zach LaVine tweaked his knee last Friday against the Warriors attempting to grab a rebound. Luckily, his MRI results came back clean and the star guard has no structural damage in his knee. Still, LaVine has missed the Bulls’ last two games. On the season, LaVine is averaging 24.9 PPG, 4.8 RPG, and 4.2 APG. He is shooting 49% from the field and 41% from downtown.
Lonzo Ball has also missed the team’s last two games due to a knee injury. According to K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago, Ball will change the treatment he’s been receiving to see if his knee will respond better. On the year, Ball is averaging 13 PPG, 5.4 RPG, and 5.1 APG. He is shooting 42% from the field and three-point range.
When the Bulls travel to Milwaukee, Orlando, and Oklahoma City, both players will stay back in Chicago to continue treatment as they work through their injuries.
