Chicago Bulls guard Zach LaVine is having a career year, but a knee injury could hold him back.

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, LaVine is heading to Los Angeles this week to meet with a specialist to further discuss and gain an evaluation on his knee.

Despite this setback, LaVine is planning on participating in the All-Star Game in Cleveland next Sunday.

LaVine has missed three of the Bulls’ last six games, including their last game Thursday against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Last month against the Portland Trail Blazers, LaVine scored 20 points in a 130-116 win.

In 47 games this season, LaVine is averaging 24.6 points per game with 4.9 rebounds and 4.5 assists. The Bulls are expected to make their first playoff appearance since 2017.

They hold a 36-21 record, sitting just one game back of the Miami Heat for the top spot in the Eastern Conference standings.
