Zach Lavine gets injured in the first quarter
Zach Lavine left the game early with an apparent knee injury in the first 5 mins of the game. He got an offensive rebound and he came back down with it. Zach didn’t have any awkward landing but as got the ball out on the baseline, he started limping. He left the game immediately and headed straight to the locker room and did not return for the rest of the game.

Chicago Bulls guard Zach LaVine will get an MRI on his left knee Saturday, but there’s initial confidence that he hasn’t suffered a serious injury, sources tell ESPN. It was described as “discomfort” and erring on side of caution with MRI tomorrow.
