Coby White is getting closer to a comeback | NBA
Like Pascal Siakam, Coby White went to the pool table last June for an operation on his left shoulder. If the interior of the Raptors has just returned, for the leader of the Bulls on the other hand, we will have to wait a little longer.
But clearly, according to Billy Donovan, we are getting closer to a return to competition since he trained with contact, in five-on-five, with only a few players and members of the staff, this Sunday.
« He gets closer and closer, to the point where he can fully train », announces the Chicago coach to NBC Sports. “He can play with contact and I would like to see him against the other players. He is very, very close to a return to training. He trusts his shoulder. It is powerful enough to handle contact now. «
No date has yet been given, but Billy Donovan has made it clear that he intends to take Coby White with him for the “road trip” to the West of the Bulls in the coming days. It starts on November 12 at Golden State and then ends on November 19 in Denver, after matches in Los Angeles, to face the two local franchises, and Portland.
What does the coach expect from his playmaker, now a substitute (as in his first season) after the arrival of Lonzo Ball this summer?
« He will bring a shot, especially when leaving the bench », announces the technician. “We will have additional shooting among the replacements. Having one more scorer gives this group a boost. After that, I don’t know what it will look like because he missed the whole of the summer, the training camp, a lot of training and now matches. I want him to bring his qualities to creation and be aggressive. «
