Chicago Bulls guard Coby White underwent successful surgery on his left shoulder today, the team announced.
The surgery repaired damage from an injury sustained this past weekend while he engaged in basketball activities away from the team.
He will be re-evaluated in four months, which is right before the start of the 2021-22 regular season and after training camp begins.
White, 21, played 69 out of 72 games this season and averaged 15.1 points, 4.1 rebounds and 4.8 assists per game while shooting 41.8 percent from the field and 35.9 percent from three-point.
“It was up-and-down for him this year,” Bulls coach Billy Donovan told reporters about White at the end-of-season media availability last month. “But I’ve always said this about him, he’s got great resolve. He’s got resiliency, and he’s got great bounce-back ability. After the trade was over with, I think he kind of found his footing and played really good basketball for us.”
