Zach LaVine is unlikely to be on the court when the Chicago Bulls visit the Boston Celtics on Saturday night.

The Bulls' All-Star wing exited Friday night's game vs. the Golden State Warriors with a left knee injury. ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports "there's initial confidence" the injury isn't serious, and LaVine will undergo an MRI on Saturday.

LaVine being out would be a huge break for Boston. The 26-year-old is averaging 25.6 points and shooting 49.1% from the floor through 37 games.

Chicago currently owns a 27-12 record and the top spot in the Eastern Conference.

Celtics vs. Bulls is scheduled for an 8:30 p.m. ET tip-off Saturday at TD Garden.
