Coach Fred Hoiberg said Zach LaVine (knee) could be cleared for contact in two weeks.
LaVine is on track to be cleared or contact in two weeks.“He feels great. He’s been going through all of our 5-on-0 stuff, has been doing everything in practice with the exception of contact. That’s the last hurdle. We’ll need a good couple of weeks to get him ready.’’ Although this is good news, the young guard is still a ways away from returning to the court. His projected return is late December and despite possibly taking contact in two weeks that timetable could still ring true. The 22-year-old is worth stashing on your IR spot, but be wary of minutes restrictions and nights off when he does return.
