Lauri Markkanen has been cleared by team doctors for full contact in practice.

“Lauri is excited, his teammates are excited and certainly his coaches are excited,’’ Fred Hoiberg said.

Markkanen injured his right elbow the first week of camp.

“Yeah, the plan for Lauri is to have a full-contact practice with no limitations [on Tuesday],’’ Hoiberg said. “It’s going to be a day-by-day situation. If he has soreness, we’ll obviously scale back, but if he keeps making progress, we can keep getting him out on the floor soon.’’

Markkanen could return in time for Chicago's game on Dec. 4.
