The Chicago Bulls may be without their best player tonight as they take on the Charlotte Hornets.
According to the NBA’s latest official injury report, the Bulls have listed LaVine as “questionable” with an undisclosed illness.
Ugh. Zach LaVine listed as QUESTIONABLE with an illness on the latest injury report.
The guy is known to play through what he can, so I have to imagine he feels pretty crummy if he isn't on the court tonight.

We’ve grown used to seeing LaVine play through most bumps and bruises, so I’d lean toward believing he convinces the team to let him suit up tonight. However, if he does take a seat on the bench, it would feel like a significant absence against a Hornets team that sits right behind the Bulls in the East standings.
Charlotte currently scores more points per game than any other team in the league while also holding the NBA’s 6th-most efficient offense. So there is no question LaVine’s scoring ability could be pivotal in walking away with a victory later tonight.
Anyway, hope you feel better soon, Zach!
