Chicago Bulls guard Zach LaVine will have his left knee injury re-evaluated early next week after an MRI revealed no significant structural damage, the Bulls announced.

LaVine is experiencing stiffness in his knee, according to The Athletic's Shams Charania. He's not expected to miss significant time.

The All-Star exited Friday's loss to the Golden State Warriors just three minutes into the first quarter and didn't return. He had zero points.

LaVine ranks 11th in the NBA in scoring at 24.9 points per game.

Chicago (27-13) holds a one-game lead over the Miami Heat for the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference.
