A day after the Bulls had their Tuesday and Thursday games canceled, the NBA has moved the start time of Sunday's game. The Bulls were originally slated to play the Lakers at 2:30 PM CST on Sunday. Tip-off will now take place at 7:00 PM CST.

This schedule alteration will allow the Bulls more time to get healthy and receive results from additional COVID-19 tests. According to KC Johnson, the team should have a handful of players coming off the COVID list soon.

With Zach LaVine being one of the latest Bulls sidelined, DeMar DeRozan will need to be ready to go. DeRozan scored a season-high 38 points at Crypto.com Arena back in November. The Bulls won the game 121-103. Even with these players returning, it will still be an uphill battle.
