The Chicago Bulls reported Tuesday that guard Jack Lavin underwent successful arthroscopic surgery on his left knee.

Lavin, who suffered occasional knee pain during the 2021-22 season, completed the procedure at the Cedars-Sinai Kerlan-Jobe Institute in Los Angeles.

Levin missed several games in January and February before meeting with an expert in Los Angeles and being medically cleared to return to court. He was named an All-Star for the second consecutive season and averaged 24.4 points, 4.6 rebounds and 4.5 assists in 67 games.

Chicago made the playoffs as the No. 6 pick at the Eastern Conference, but missed the fifth and final game of the first round series against Milwaukee after LaVine entered the COVID-19 health and safety protocol.

LaVine, 27, is a pending uncontrolled free agent for the first time in her eight-year NBA career. He averaged 13.7 points in three seasons (2014-17) with the Minnesota Timberwolves, but in his five seasons with the Bulls he averaged 24.4 points, 4.7 rebounds and 4.4 assists while shooting 46.8 percent overall and 38.9 percent from 3-points.
