Bulls’ Zach LaVine May Not Return Until January

Published

on

The Chicago Bulls may be without Zach LaVine for far longer than they initially expected him to be out of action.

LaVine appears likely to return from his ACL injury in January rather than December, according to K.C. Johnson of The Chicago Tribune and Joe Cowley of The Chicago Sun-Times.

“The big thing is he needs to string together a good 10 days of practice to where he’s not going every other day,” Bulls head coach Fred Hoiberg said of LaVine.

“I would say the next 10 days is not going to happen. He’s still going to be on the every other day program at least for another 10 days to two weeks, and then we’ll take it from there as far as getting him consecutive-day workouts, and then get him back shortly after that.”

When LaVine does make his official debut with Chicago, he will start off by playing about 12 to 18 minutes per night, Hoiberg said.

The Chicago Bulls have undergone some big changes throughout the course of the 2018-2019 season, from the departure of Fred Hoiberg as head coach, to some drama under new head coach Jim Boylen.

Boylen has worked in a new offensive system, which has Dunn playing a different role to suit their new, traditional half court offense.

Dunn, has remained positive despite the changes.

“Nah. I think I got good listening skills,” Dunn said, according to K.C. Johnson of The Chicago Tribune. “I just listen to what coaches want me to do. I’m never one to disobey Coach’s rules.”

“There have been games where it worked. And there have been games where it’s on us to make shots. We’ve been getting good looks. We’ve been getting downhill from the offense. So it’s on us.”
