Chicago Bulls guard Zach LaVine underwent an MRI on Tuesday, which revealed a left thumb injury, sources told ESPN.
The injury is on his opposite hand and had been bothering him as he entered the Bulls’ 111-108 win against the Toronto Raptors on Monday night.
The team decided to have his thumb checked after the game, but the injury is not expected to worsen if LaVine continues to play.
So far, the injury does not appear to have affected LaVine’s performance. He still leads the Bulls, who are on their first 4-0 start since the 1996-1997 season, in scoring, averaging 25.5 points per game while shooting 50% from the field and 44% from the triple.
The Bulls host the New York Knicks Thursday night at the United Center.
LaVine’s injury was first reported by The Athletic.
