Zach LaVine is questionable for the Bulls’ Friday night game against San Antonio Spurs, the team announced
Chicago Bulls’ guard, Zach Lavine is questionable to play on Friday against the San Antonio Spurs due to left knee injury management.
Since a series of rigorous, post-preseason practices caused a flare-up of discomfort in the knee, Head Coach, Billy Donovan has stressed that the Bulls will manage LaVine’s work load carefully for the foreseeable future.
Bulls list Zach LaVine questionable (left knee injury management) for Friday’s game in San Antonio, the front end of a back-to-back.— K.C. Johnson (@KCJHoop) October 27, 2022
The two-time All Star missed the Bulls’ first two games of the season due to knee maintenance, but was available for the last three matchups and averaged 23.3 points, 3.7 rebounds and 3.7 assists in 31.7 minutes per game.
His status is uncertain for the first half of the team’s back-to-back set, while Alex Caruso and Coby White should see increased work if LaVine is held out.
Should LaVine miss the contest, it will be his third absence of the season, and the second to come on the front end of a back-to-back.
The Bulls have two additional back-to-backs in the near future — Nov. 1 and 2 against the Nets (road) and Hornets (home), and Nov. 6 and 7 against the Raptors (first road, second home).
Chicago enter the game against Spurs with a 3-2 record, 2-1 with LaVine and 1-1 without him.
