2022-2023 Season Preview
Led by All-Star guard Zach LaVine, the Bulls have a talented core of young players that should continue to improve. LaVine is coming off a career-best season in which he averaged 28.8 points per game. He will be joined by fellow All-Stars DeMar DeRozan and Nikola Vučević once again to provide a dynamic offense. An intriguing group of young players highlighted by Patrick Williams and Ayo Dosunmu will be counted on to bolster Chicago’s starting lineup.
The biggest question facing the Bulls is how they will respond to the continuing injury of Lonzo Ball. Will Alex Caruso and Ayo Dosunmube enough to replace him? Can Coby White develop into a top tier 6th man? When exactly will Lonzo Ball be healthy enough to return to action? How Coach Billy Donovan and Chicago’s front office will go a long way in ensuring the Bulls can contend for a deep playoff run.
