The Chicago Bulls announced that Zach LaVine is questionable for tonight's game against the Milwaukee Bucks. LaVine is still battling left knee issues stemming from a January injury in a loss to the Golden State Warriors.

The Bulls downgraded LaVine from probable to questionable this morning. Chicago is locked into the NBA playoffs currently but still has a chance to improve its seeding. Owning the fifth seed, the Bulls are also only two games away from falling to the seventh seed, which is an NBA Play-In Tournament slot. If LaVine misses any of the Bulls' four remaining games, the team will have a hard time recording a strong finish to the regular season.

On the season, Zach LaVine is averaging 24.7 PPG, 4.6 RPG, and 4.5 APG while shooting 47% from the field and 39% from downtown. Since suffering the knee injury, his numbers have dipped compared to his hot start to the 2021-22 campaign. At one point, it looked like LaVine was a lock for an All-NBA Team selection. If he was selected, he would have been eligible for the NBA "super-max" contract.

With that scenario now most likely out the window, LaVine is still trying to battle through his knee issues and reach the playoffs for the first time in his eight-year career. The Chicago Bulls are 8-5 this season without LaVine in the lineup. In the final stretch of regular-season action, the Bulls will surely need him on the court to be competitive.
