Bulls point guard Cameron Payne is set to make his season debut Thursday against the 76ers after foot surgery sidelined him for nearly two-thirds of the season. He’ll back up Kris Dunn. Payne, 23, who had a second surgery on his right foot in September, played three games with the Windy City Bulls before he was recalled last week. He showed some promise, averaging 21 points, four assists and four rebounds with the Bulls’ G League affiliate, but he still has a lot to prove. Once considered general manager Gar Forman’s “point guard of the future,” Payne only shot 33.3 percent from the field in the 11 games he played for the Bulls last season.
