Zach LaVine (knee), who took part in his first full-contact practice Monday following February surgery to repair his ACL, suggested that he's hopeful to make his Bulls and season debut in mid-to-late December, Sam Smith of the Bulls' official site reports. "It should be [mid or late December]," LaVine said when asked about the return timeline Monday. "That's what I'm going for. As long as I'm progressing and I'm doing what I need to on the court, this thing could go fast and I could be out there playing with the guys. My jumping and my athleticism are good. All my strength numbers are there. [I've] been out of basketball – contact wise – for nine months, and that's not going to come back in two or three practices. I have to get my timing down. I've been doing everything from dunking to running. Only thing I hadn't been cleared for was contact. I've been pushing it as much as I can."
