The Chicago Bulls guard Zach LaVine is set to be out of action for at least a week after he incurred a right ankle sprain, the team announced. Bulls coach Billy Donovan explained that he is unsure of how long it will take for the guard to recover.
“I don’t know what it’s going to end up being. It’s going to be how he responds,” Donovan explained. “certainly has swelling in his ankle. That’s pretty clear. Like I said, he’s dealt with this before. I don’t want to put a timeline on him.” He remains a doubt for the Bulls road games against the Phoenix Suns, Los Angeles Lakers, and Portland Trail Blazers.
LaVine was injured during the third quarter of the Bulls’ 110-116 win over the Toronto Raptors on Thursday night. He checked himself out of the game immediately afterward. While he returned during the fourth quarter, LaVine checked out yet again after just two minutes of play.
