Chicago Bulls guard Zach LaVine’s MRI scan on Tuesday revealed a sprained left thumb. However, the All-Star player plans to push through the injury.

“I think right now it’s just trying to figure out how to manage the pain and keep it safe,” LaVine said Wednesday. “Then going forward, I’ll get more information on it if I plan on playing with it. You know me, I try to play through everything. If I’m able to, I will. If not we’ll see how it goes.”

According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, the 26-year-old injured his non-shooting thumb following Monday’s win over the Toronto Raptors.

“That will be the medical and Zach sitting down and talking, figuring out what he thinks is best and what the pain is like and how much he can tolerate and what he can do,” Bulls coach Billy Donovan said. I think those are things Zach and the medical staff will communicate and talk about — certainly after today’s practice and probably after [Thursday’s] shootaround.”

The Bulls will play Thursday night at home against the New York Knicks, then host the Utah Jazz on Saturday.
