According to the Chicago Bulls, center Nikola Vučević is questionable for Monday's game due to illness.

Vučević, as well as the new look Bulls, have been firing on all cylinders through their first three games. With a perfect 3-0 record, the Bulls look to make it four straight to begin the season with a win against the Raptors in Toronto. If Vučević is unable to go, a smaller lineup may be the go-to route for the Bulls on Monday. That said, the big center's absence would also mean more minutes for players such as Tony Bradley, Alize Johnson, Javonte Green, and Derrick Jones Jr.

Vučević is off to a sensational start in 2021-22, averaging a double-double through three games. The Montenegro native is currently averaging 13.3 PPG, 12.7 RPG, and 4.0 APG to start the season. With a now loaded roster, averaging a double-double is exactly what the Bulls need from their big center. Ideally, Vučević will suit up in Toronto on Monday, but if not, the team's depth will have to come through to make up for his absence.
