It could be another two weeks, or three on the far side, but we’ll be seeing Zach LaVine on the court in a Bulls uniform soon. The ACL tear in his left knee is in the rearview. The back spasms that lately have limited his practice time have subsided. Next time the Bulls practice, coach Fred Hoiberg said Wednesday, LaVine will get after it with his teammates like a guy who’s debut is fast approaching. So: What’ll it mean for LaVine’s teammates if — no, when — the smooth-scoring, high-flying guard claims a spot in the starting lineup? “I have some ideas,” Hoiberg said, divulging little else. It would seem the candidates to grab some bench are perimeter players Justin Holiday, who has started 29 of 30 games this season, and Denzel Valentine, who has started the last 18 contests.
With Zach LaVine nearly back, who will become the next sitting Bull?
