Lauri Markkanen started "controlled contact" portions of practice and coach Fred Hoiberg said he could be cleared for full contact as soon as next week if there are no setbacks.
"Controlled contact" basically means with the coaching staff but it's a good sign Hoiberg is already talking about Markkanen being cleared for full contact. Owners stashing him just have to hold on a little longer before we see Makkanen and his mid-round talent back on the court.
