Chicago Bulls star undergoes season-ending surgery


Zach LaVine is recovering from a foot injury that sidelined the Bulls star as trade rumors swirl around his potential departure from Chicago.

We’re following all LaVine-related news.

February 8: Zach LaVine has season-ending right foot surgery

The team announced LaVine late last week. He will undergo surgery after he and his agency, Klutch Sports Group, consulted with the team and outside medical personnel. The two-time All-Star is expected to be sidelined for four to six months.

His decision to undergo surgery eliminated the Bulls’ chances of trading him before Thursday’s deadline and created longer-term questions for the team.

“I think we have a great relationship with Zach, a great relationship with his representation at Rich Paul,” said Arturas Karnisovas, vice president of basketball operations. “I think we always work together and I think his thoughts are always about the team. He’s trying to win. And when he’s healthy, he’s trying to win.”

He said the Bulls were “better with Zach on the team.”

LaVine, who will turn 29 in March, missed 17 games from November 30 to January 3 due to inflammation in his right foot. The Bulls, who had a slow start to the season, went 10-7 without him.

January 19: LaVine is out at least a week with a right ankle injury

LaVine’s return to the court lasted only six games before hitting a hitch. The guard sprained his ankle in Thursday’s win over the home team Toronto Raptors and will be sidelined for at least a week, according to Bulls PR.

That means he will miss Saturday’s home game against the Memphis Grizzlies and could miss all of next week’s away games against the Phoenix Suns, Los Angeles and Portland Trail Blazers.
