Zach LaVine Returns from 11 Month Absence Tonight Against the Pistons
As Zach LaVine returns to the NBA court on Saturday, he will be wearing a different jersey than the last time you saw him play.
The Chicago Bulls guard injured his ACL with the Minnesota Timberwolves a year ago and was eventually traded to Chicago as part of the Jimmy Butler deal.
LaVine was a fan favorite in Minnesota as his high flying dunks always got the fans to their feet and his improvement from year to year made him one of the games bright young stars.
Now a Chicago Bull, LaVine looks to carve out the same kind of response from his new fan base as he returns to the court against the Pistons on Saturday.
It will be his first NBA game in 11 months and the Bulls are ecstatic to get another young talent into the rotation as they try and find their identity as a team.
Although the Bulls have played better as of late, they are still 7 games out of the final spot in the Eastern Conference playoffs.
