Analysis: LaVine had said this summer he hoped to play in the opener, but that seemed somewhat unrealistic considering he tore his ACL in February. He's expected to need nine months off before playing again, and the Bulls will not rush back the young potential star. LaVine likely won't play until November at the earliest and maybe not until December.
