Chicago Bulls forward Javonte Green will undergo an arthroscopic debridement of his right knee Wednesday, the team announced Tuesday afternoon.
Green will be reevaluated in approximately two weeks and, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the team is hopeful he’ll be able to return to the lineup in about a month.
Coincidentally, the procedure Green is set to undergo is the same one Lonzo Ball had in September.
Green has suited up for just six games since he injured his knee against Golden State on December 2. Though he’s averaging just 5.9 points, 0.8 steals, and 0.7 blocks in 16 minutes per game, Green owns the second-best plus-minus on the team behind fellow defensive spark plug Alex Caruso.
In more inspiring news, DeMar DeRozan is listed as questionable ahead of the team’s tilt with Washington Wednesday. DeRozan strained his right quad in the third quarter on Monday’s loss to the Celtics.
If DeRozan is unable to go, it’ll be his first absence of the season and just his seventh since debuting with the Bulls last season.
The Wizards, meanwhile, have their own issues with Bradley Beal (left hamstring strain) set to miss his third-straight contest and the trio of Daniel Gafford (right ankle sprain), Corey Kispert (lower back soreness) and Kristaps Porzingis (right rib contusion) listed as “questionable” on the latest injury report.
