Bulls Guard Valentine Out 3-4 Weeks After Ankle Scope

Chicago Bulls guard Denzel Valentine had an up-and-down rookie year. He received sporadic playing time throughout the year, often finding himself completely out of head coach Fred Hoibergs rotation. With the season over, hes facing nearly a month of rehab on the ankle he sprained twice during the season.

The 23-year-old Valentine was drafted No. 14 overall by the Bulls in the 2016 NBA Draft after four seasons at Michigan State. Despite the prevailing opinion on Valentine being that hes not fast or athletic enough to be a point guard in the NBA, the Bulls loved the guard for his stat-stuffing season season. In his final year under Tom Izzo, Valentine averaged 19.2 points, 7.8 assists, and 7.5 rebounds per game.
