(670 The Score) Bulls guard Coby White underwent left shoulder surgery Thursday, the team announced.
White suffered damage to his shoulder while engaging in basketball activities away from the team last weekend. He’s set to be re-evaluated in four months, the Bulls said, a timeline that would fall in the middle of training camp and which means White could miss the start of the season.
After the NBA schedule was adjusted because of the pandemic this past season, training camps are set to open on their usual schedule in late September next season. The NBA regular season is set to begin Oct. 19, the Athletic reported.
White, 21, is a key piece of the Bulls’ future after a strong finish to this past season. White averaged 15.1 points and 4.8 assists while shooting 35.9% from 3-point range in 69 games, which included 54 starts. White has been durable in his two-year NBA career, missing just three total games.
Head team physician Dr. Brian Cole of Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush performed the operation on White.
