Chicago Bulls Zach LaVine Out For The Year With Foot Injury Amid NBA

Chicago Bulls shooting guard Zach LaVine will be out for the rest of the season due to surgery on his foot injury. The decision was made after discussions with the Bulls’ medical team, LaVine, and Klutch Sports Group.

LaVine, 28, will have surgery next week and is expected to be sidelined for four to six months. Bulls coach Billy Donovan explained that LaVine chose surgery to address ongoing discomfort in his right foot, as he felt he couldn’t play at his best and contribute effectively.

After recovering from a right ankle sprain in January, Zach LaVine faced a return of the discomfort he experienced in December, which led to him missing 17 consecutive games. The decision to opt for surgery wasn’t made solely by the team but involved discussions with various experts to explore different opinions.

With Zach LaVine and Lonzo Ball both out due to injury, Chicago is without its starting backcourt for the rest of the season. Ball is sidelined for a second consecutive season with a knee injury. The duo, together making over $65 million this season, leaves a significant gap in the team.

Donovan expressed sympathy for Zach LaVine, acknowledging his strong desire to play and contribute to the team. LaVine, in the second season of a five-year, $215 million contract, had been averaging 19.5 points, 5.2 rebounds, and 3.9 assists in 25 games this season.

Currently, the Bulls are 23-26, ranking ninth in the Eastern Conference. They are set to host the Sacramento Kings on Saturday night.
