 LaVine underwent successful arthroscopic surgery on his left knee Tuesday.

The Scoop:As expected, the All-Star guard had offseason surgery to address a knee issue that lingered for the majority of the 2021-22 campaign. LaVine is an unrestricted free agent this summer after posting his fourth straight season with at least 23.0 points, 4.0 rebounds and 4.0 assists per game. He's expected to have plenty of suitors in free agency, but he hasn't ruled out a return to Chicago yet.

Zach LaVine: Undergoing scope in coming weeks
LaVine (knee) will undergo a scope procedure on his left knee in the coming weeks, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

The Scoop: This isn't unexpected news, as it was known that LaVine would likely need surgery during the offseason, but it hadn't been confirmed until Thursday. He began dealing with the issue in December, and his numbers began trailing off as a result. That said, he was still able to make a second straight All-Star game and appear in 67 games. LaVine is an unrestricted free agent this summer, which will soon become the bigger storyline assuming everything goes as planned with his knee surgery.

Zach LaVine: Headed for knee scope
LaVine (COVID-19 protocols) is expected to undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left knee during the offseason, Joe Cowley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

The Scoop: Though LaVine's entry into the NBA's health and safety protocols Tuesday resulted in him sitting out the Bulls' season-ending loss Wednesday in Game 5 of the team's first-round series with the Bucks, it was lingering discomfort in his left knee that hampered him for most of the second half of the campaign. LaVine wasn't forced to miss extensive time because of the knee issue, which first cropped up in December. LaVine's defensive efficiency suffered as a result of the injury, and his offensive numbers also trended down after a promising start to the season. After the calendar flipped to January, LaVine averaged 23.0 points and 2.15 three-pointers on 45.3 percent shooting from the field and 37 percent shooting from downtown; prior to that, he averaged 26.0 points and 3.0 triples while shooting 50 and 41 percent from the field and distance, respectively. According to Cowley, LaVine's knee problem isn't considered degenerative, and an arthroscopic procedure should put him back to full strength well in advance of training camp in the fall. LaVine is ticketed for unrestricted free agency and will still be well-positioned to land a long-term deal north of $100 million.

Zach LaVine: Not available for Game 5
LaVine (COVID-19 health and safety protocols) has been ruled out for Wednesday's Game 5 matchup with the Bucks in Milwaukee.

The Scoop: LaVine's absence comes as little surprise after he entered the protocols Tuesday, presumably as a result of testing positive for the virus. The 27-year-old was previously in the protocols in December for 11 days, but it's unclear if his bout with the virus is as severe this time around. In any case, LaVine will be hard-pressed to make it back for a potential Game 6 on Friday in Chicago, should the Bulls pull out an upset on the road in Game 5 to extend the series. In addition to LaVine, the Bulls will also be without Alex Caruso (concussion) for Game 5, which likely puts Ayo Dosunmu and Coby White in line to handle huge roles out of the backcourt.

Zach LaVine: Enters COVID-19 protocols
LaVine entered the NBA's health and safety protocols Tuesday and will likely be sidelined for Wednesday's Game 5 in Milwaukee, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

The Scoop: On it's own, this is obviously a huge blow for Chicago, who faces elimination, but the Bulls could also be without Alex Caruso (concussion) and have already lost Lonzo Ball (knee) for the season, so youngsters Coby White and Ayo Dosunmu will likely both play critical roles during Game 5. As for LaVine, it's his third time landing in the league's protocols over the last two seasons, and he was sidelined for multiple games on each occasion, so if the Bulls force a Game 6, their All-Star swingman would likely remain out, though he hasn't even been ruled out for Game 5 yet and is officially listed as questionable. While White, Dosunmu and others are expected to have increased roles, the Bulls presumably will lean heavily on DeMar DeRozan in LaVine's likely absence.
