“Lately it’s going well. I’m practicing with the team,” Dunleavy said. “I’m closer, feeling a lot better. Hope to be out there soon.” “Soon” is a relative term, as he would only say he expects to be on the floor in February, but Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg said Dunleavy will go through a contact practice Tuesday and will travel on the west coast trip that begins Thursday. “(We’ll) kind of put him in a controlled type situation with some of the guys and coaches,” Hoiberg said. “Get him out running our stuff in a controlled scrimmage type way. He will travel on this trip and hopefully practice with our team.”

Bulls forward Mike Dunleavy Jr. is planning to see two specialists this week after he had a setback in his recovery from offseason back surgery. Coach Fred Hoiberg said Monday that Dunleavy is going to stop his on-court work and focus on rehabbing the injury for about two weeks. “He was really sore when we went out on the West Coast,” Hoiberg said. “And he had upped his activity level quite a bit. And it quieted down a lot, which I think is a good sign, these last couple of days when he’s had inactivity. Now it’s a matter of getting those muscles strengthened in the back and in the core and like I said, go out, see a specialist and put a plan together and hopefully get him back out there.”

Toronto Raptors head coach Dwane Casey said Tuesday that he has plans to give DeMar DeRozan more time at point guard during the 2017-18 season. “We got to have a better mentality of ball movement, man movement and spacing,” Casey said on Wednesday while on The Andrew Walker Show on Sportsnet 590 The FAN.
Casey also said that he’s not going to shy away from allowing DeRozan to create in the mid-range in iso situations, knowing it helps him draw fouls. But the focus is clear: the Raptors are looking to create more ball movement. “Everyone and their brother knows we want better ball movement,” said Casey.
Brett Dawson: Lot of questions about Dakari Johnson’s role. He’ll be 15th man. Your 15th man doesn’t play much. Still likely will spend some time w/ Blue. Johnson is an inexpensive guy who has grown a ton as a player, and the Thunder likes him. This is the logical next step for him.
Trail Blazers teammates Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum have been trying to sell Carmelo Anthony on joining Portland in a potential trade. They see Anthony as a missing piece to a team that was the No. 8 seed in a now-stacked Western Conference. Lillard went as far as to imply that Anthony joining Portland would make the Blazers at Golden State’s level or better.
The Warriors swept the Trail Blazers (easily) in the first round of the NBA playoffs last season. With that in mind, Draymond Green had himself a good laugh upon hearing of Lillard’s comments.

The Lakers met with free-agent guard Ian Clark for 45 minutes on Thursday afternoon, according to a league source familiar with the situation.The Lakers have expressed interest in Clark in recent weeks for various reasons, but no offer was made.
The Lakers view the 26-year-old Clark as a good mentor for rookie point guard Lonzo Ball after helping the Warriors win the 2017 NBA championship. After only playing four years in the NBA, Clark still could further cement his career with the Lakers should he have a productive season.
