The Chicago Bulls asked the NBA to postpone their upcoming game against the Detroit Pistons on Tuesday. The NBA has not made a decision on this matter yet.

The Bulls have nine players in the NBA's health and safety protocols. Zach LaVine, DeMar DeRozan, Matt Thomas, Coby White, Derrick Jones Jr., Troy Brown Jr., Stanley Johnson, Ayo Dosunmu, and Javonte Green. The Bulls only have nine eligible players to suit up if a game is played Tuesday against the Pistons.

There is obviously a huge issue league-wide dealing with COVID-19. 22 players from the league are out, and as previously mentioned, nine from the Bulls alone. If the NBA is to continue on, it could prove to be detrimental for the Bulls. A 10-day postponement would be beneficial for the Bulls as they look to get healthy after COVID-19 ravaged the locker room.
