Zach LaVine and Alex Caruso are no longer listed on the Chicago Bulls’ injury report and will be in uniform for game one of the team’s first-round playoff series against Milwaukee Sunday.

LaVine (left knee) sat out the regular season finale last Sunday while Caruso (back), ironically, hasn’t played since the Bulls’ 21-point loss to the Bucks on April 5.

Both LaVine and Caruso opined this week about how their respective time off has done their bodies some good. That’s a welcome sign ahead of a series that calls for every available Bull to be at their best.
