An MRI taken Saturday morning at Mayo Clinic by Minnesota Timberwolves Orthopedic Surgeon Dr. Diane Dahm revealed that Wolves guard Zach LaVine has a torn ACL in his left knee. LaVine, who will have surgery at a to-be-determined date, will miss the remainder of the season.

Pray up for my teammate and brother @ZachLaVine I know he will come back stronger then ever! 🙏
