Zach LaVine has suffered a torn ACL in his left knee.
The Minnesota Timberwolves announced that an MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) taken on Saturday at Mayo Clinic by Team Orthopedic Surgeon Dr. Diane Dahm revealed the injury. LaVine, who will have surgery at a to-be-determined date, will miss the remainder of the season.
The injury occurred during last night’s 116-108 loss to the Detroit Pistons.
In 47 games this season, LaVine averaged 18.9 points, 3.4 rebounds and 3.0 assists in 37.2 minutes per game. In his third NBA season, LaVine holds career averages of 13.7 points, 2.9 rebounds and 3.2 assists in 206 games.
