“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.”

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.
Storyline: Carmelo Anthony Trade?
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.
