Bulls’ LaVine on track to be cleared to practice Monday

Zach LaVine is taking more contact in practice as each day passes.

Chicago Bulls shooting guard Zach LaVine, who is rehabbing a torn ACL, is on track to be cleared for his first contact practice of the year on Monday.

The Bulls acquired LaVine over the summer in the Jimmy Butler trade from the Minnesota Timberwolves.

LaVine has career averages of 13.7 points in 206 games played. He was putting up 18.9 points per game before he injured his knee last year with the Timberwolves.
