The Bulls might have Zach LaVine and Javonte Green available to play Monday when they visit Oklahoma City.

Bulls coach Billy Donovan said before Sunday's game the two players would fly to Oklahoma and meet the team. LaVine missed his fifth game with left knee soreness.

 

"He's been on the floor working out the last few days," Donovan said of LaVine. "He's doing well. I spoke to him yesterday for a little bit. He'll fly to Oklahoma City with Javonte and probably be reevaluated to see if those guys are able to play.

"Everything this morning went well with their work. We'll see how they're doing tomorrow, but there's a possibility both those guys could be available."

Green last played on Dec. 31 and has been out with an adductor strain. He was the Bulls' usual starter at power forward before getting hurt. Two-way player Tyler Cook got his second straight start Sunday.
