Zach LaVine is not done well. He recently visited a specialist for his left knee problems, who reassured him by giving him the go-ahead to continue playing; however, he himself admits that at the moment (this season) he will not be one hundred percent.
«My knee is not one hundred percent. Thats the reality. But… can I still go out there and contribute? I can still do it, but it’s something I’ll have to deal with until the end of the season. I may not be perfect, but I, at 80 percent, 70 percent, whatever, I’m still one of the best players in the NBA; so in the same way I will be one of the best on the court when we play », he expresses to the media.
Asked if there was any risk when playing, the Bulls guard explains that if there were any such problem he would not play; the point is that the discomfort is limited to pain and some mobility problem, something that he simply hopes to deal with as best as possible.
“We don’t know how we’re going to address it exactly, but it will be something like a periodic cure. It makes me feel better at times, makes me feel comfortable playing and ultimately allows me to be effective on the pitch. Then, when the season is over, I’ll take care of whatever is necessary », he comments before admitting that there is a possibility of an operation. “It’s going to be a discussion that my doctor and I have.”
summer free agent
So is. After not signing an extension with Chicago, Zach LaVine will be an unrestricted free agent this summer. He recently commented that he hopes to get what he deserves, but what he doesn’t plan to do is stop now to be physically fit then. His first objective is to give it all this course; what he comes after will be seen.
“I have a great responsibility here with the team, my teammates, my coaches and the city of Chicago. I take a lot of pride in that. It means something to me. I hope that people understand that I will not put myself first. I’m not going to sign my contract right now. I’m not a free agent until the end of the season. So until then, I’m focused on the season », he ends.
