It’s going to be a frustrating rude owners. No back to backs and prob a min. Restriction for a month that sits at 15/20 Min. Per.  By the all star maybe those restrictions are gone but before than your going to have to keep your expectations in check and set it pretty low imo.

I have those exact same players. I’m planning on holding and streaming one spot. 

 

I’m thinking AD can be back soon.

I've got Wall, Conley, THJ, LaVine and one IR between them. I'm exploring trade scenarios, but all of my opponents are dragging bodies too and not interested.

 

With a 4 win cushion, I might wait it out too and see who comes back first (Wall?).

Smh the Bulls need to unleash this guy already. He has had no setbacks why push back his date 

 

because the team is hot garbage and he is prob. going to be the franchise player so yea taking extreme caution is the way to go with a guy coming off tearing his acl on a bottom barrel team. They don't care about your fantasy team.

With how soft these generation of players are today, it's hard to envision lavine playing in any back to backs. and I think he will be on a strict minutes restriction for the first month or 2. Bulls are in tank mode

 

The ignorance of these kind of statements never ceases to amaze me.  He will be worked in slowly but that's not his decision.  It's the decision of the medical staff and the bigger picture (tanking) of the franchise.

Lol nor am I expecting them or did I insinuate that I wish they would care about this game I play in my spare time. I played ball all through college so I fully understand how injuries and timelines function. Which is why I made that statement because it’s not like they would be rushing him back seeing as mid/late December with no setbacks has been his timeline since this whole thing started. Fantasy aside, as someone who is in the Chicago area and is interested in how Lavine will play as the main guy I of course am ready to see him in game action, as I’m sure he is as well. Especially with all the wild injuries this NBA season has had it would be nice to see a young stud like him back out there.

Lavine wants to play again this season - they won't hold him out if he's completely back health-wise.

 

 

Not only that, but the Bulls FO needs to see what they have in this guy and how he mixes with their other young talent, so they can make decisions.

 

This dude isn't Steph Curry, so people can lick my sack with their "he won't play back to backs" rofl.

 

Wiggins and Towns showed they still have a long way to go when playing next to vets, and LaVine is no KAT or Embiid in terms superstar potential.

 

LaVine is playing on a team full of garbage and Lauri Markannen, along with a marshmallow coach, they need some signs that his ceiling isn't "3rd or 4th best player on a contender", before handing the keys to him.

It's not 1985, ACL reconstruction sucks but it's not nearly as big of a deal as it used to be. Who knows how they'll handle him, obviously carefully, but not playing back to backs seems like overkill and not playing this season seems insane.
