According to Bulls head coach Billy Donovan, the Bulls will be without Zach LaVine, Coby White, and Garrett Temple against the Suns.
Coby White missed Monday night’s game against Golden State due to neck spasms. As for Temple, he left Monday’s game with an apparent hamstring injury.
There were reports that Zach LaVine was battling an ankle injury but attempting to play through it. After Monday, it seems the Bulls’ star guard needs a night off to let the ankle heal.
The Bulls starting five will look very different tonight without LaVine, and the bench is thin without White and Temple. LaVine’s injury kicks Patrick Williams to shooting guard, with Thaddeus Young moving to small forward. Lauri Markkanen will get the start at power forward with Nikola Vucevic and Tomas Satoransky starting at center and point guard, respectively, just as they did on Monday night.
