At one point in this season, the Chicago Bulls were the number one seed in the East.
In fact, it looked like they could go all the way to the NBA Finals.
Things have changed and while the Bulls are still quite good, their future prospects are a bit more unpredictable.
Chicago is now the fifth seed with a record of 42-29.
They have been far less consistent lately and have lost three of their last seven games.
And now they’re possibly losing one of their star players.
Zach LaVine has landed back on Bulls’ injury report, listed as questionable vs. Bucks with left knee soreness/injury management.

It is being reported that Zach LaVine is now questionable for Tuesday night’s game against the reigning champs, the Milwaukee Bucks.
This is due to left knee soreness as well as injury management.
Does this mean more rough times are ahead for the Bulls?
Heading To The Playoffs
Make no mistake: the Bulls are definitely going to be in the playoffs.
But it remains to be seen if they will be just as consequential as people expected when the postseason begins.
They have been suffering from injuries left and right lately.
Between LaVine, Alex Caruso, and Lonzo Ball, it seems like most of the big players on the team have been sidelined for a considerable amount of time.
That has got them in a bit of a hole and means they will have to come together in a huge way if they want to climb out of it.
It’s important to remember that the competition in the East is very tough this year, meaning it won’t be a cakewalk for any team.
If the Bulls can’t stay healthy and consistent, their season will be nearing its end soon.
