Bulls' Zach LaVine (knee) ahead of schedule, could be ready for training camp
Chicago Bulls guard Zach LaVine (knee) say's he is ahead of schedule in recovery from knee surgery and could be ready for training camp, per Marc J. Spears of ESPN.
LaVine tore his ACL in early February, leaving him with an 8-to-12 month recovery timetable. While he may feel ready to participate in training camp come September, that would be only seven months after the injury. The Bulls are likely to take it slow with LaVine's return to the court but are glad to hear their potential franchise star is feeling good without any setbacks.
Before his injury, LaVine was averaging 18.9 points, 3.4 rebounds, 3.0 assists, and 2.6 three-pointers in 37.2 minutes per game. Despite the excellent counting stats, the third-year guard posted a -1.0 nERD rating, ranking him 300th among the 486 NBA players.
