Okay, this needs to stop now. COVID-19 is running rampant in the Chicago Bulls locker room. The latest two players to enter health and safety protocols? Ayo Dosunmu and newcomer Stanley Johnson.
It's can't all be bad news, right? On a positive note, Alex Caruso will return from his hamstring injury. Caruso has missed the last two games but will be available tonight against Miami.
As for the two absences, Ayo Dosunmu has been balling in Caruso's absence and has been a key rotational player. Stanley Johnson joined the team via the hardship waiver this week to help the Bulls with manpower. When he entered the mix, the Bulls had five players in the NBA's health and safety protocols. Johnson hasn't appeared in a game for the Bulls yet. He is currently on a 10-day contract.
This news doesn't bode well for the short-handed Bulls. They now have seven players unavailable due to COVID-19 protocols. Someone please, for the love of all that is holy, put Zach LaVine in a bubble so he remains unaffected.
