The band’s (slowly) getting back together. DeMar DeRozan, Coby White, and Javonte Green will be available to play for the Bulls against the Lakers on Sunday, according to K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports.

The trio exited health and safety protocols this week but their status for the team’s first game since Dec. 11 had yet to be determined.

DeRozan, White, and Green will give the Bulls (17-10), who’ve dropped their last two contests, a much-needed shot in the arm.

Derrick Jones Jr. also cleared health and safety protocols, but he has a "50/50 chance" to play Sunday. He is currently undergoing return to competition reconditioning.

The list of Bulls yet to clear health and safety protocols is down to six players. That list includes Matt Thomas, Zach LaVine, Troy Brown Jr., Alize Johnson, Ayo Dosunmu, and Stanley Johnson.

Billy Donovan told reporters he doesn’t expect Dosunmu, LaVine, Brown Jr., or Johnson back until after Christmas.
