CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago Bulls hope to decide on a return date for guard Zach LaVine early next week.
LaVine will travel with the team to games at Dallas and Indiana on Friday and Saturday (Saturday and Sunday, PHL time). Coach Fred Hoiberg says the two-time slam dunk champion will meet with doctors, trainers, management and coaches after the Bulls return home.
LaVine averaged 18.9 points in 47 games for Minnesota last season before tearing the ACL in his left knee. The Bulls acquired him along with Kris Dunn and Lauri Markkanen in the trade that sent Jimmy Butler to the Timberwolves.
Hoiberg spoke before Wednesday’s (Thursday, PHL time) matchup with Toronto. The Bulls’ first home game after the upcoming trip is against Houston on Monday (Tuesday, PHL time).
