“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.”
Vincent Goodwill: Fred Hoiberg said Joakim Noah underwent successful shoulder surgery this morning. And Mike Dunleavy has done non-contact drills for 2 days

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.”

Redick will be a free agent after this season. Griffin and Paul are signed through 2017-2018, but both have opt-out clauses that would allow them to become free agents this summer. Jordan and Crawford are signed through 2018-2019, but Crawford is 37. “I think the more time you’re together, the more impatient you kind of become,” Crawford said Wednesday. “You feel like time is kind of passing by.”
“I think we’re very confident, but there’s a different swagger that teams like Golden State and Cleveland have, teams that advance far every year,” guard Austin Rivers said. “We have a bunch of guys who want to get there, and who are close … we’re not there yet, but we can get there.”

Ever since the Lakers hired Walton in the 2016 offseason after serving as an assistant coach with the Golden State Warriors for the previous two years, Walton said Buss has “been incredible” as she has offered support as they talked in person or via text message. “As a coaching staff, it’s really nice to hear and know,” Walton said. “We can do things that we feel are best for the team and not have to worry for now at least if we’re a part of that future. It’s very comforting to coach that way.”
“It’s a tough spot to be in with the people that hire you aren’t here anymore. Even before that happened, I always had a good relationship with her and have had random talks with her before any of that went down,” Walton said of Jeanie Buss. “She was great with the vision she had, what she saw and the way she sees things playing out. That made it a little easier even before we had official talks after all that stuff went down.”
