What does Lonzo Ball’s injury mean for the Chicago Bulls to enter a new season

Contracting Lonzo Ball, Alex Caruso and DeMar DeRozan ahead of the start of the 2021-22 season, and pairing them with the likes of Zach LaVine and Nikola Vucevic, the Chicago Bulls have risen from a low-profile team in the Eastern Conference to one that can rival the best of the best.

After finishing 46-36, the Bulls finished off their best record since the 2014-15 season and made the playoffs for the first time since 2017, but injuries limited their chances of being true contenders in the tournament, particularly due to the fact that only the Lonzo Ball played in 35 matches.
