The NBA has announced that Friday's Chicago Bulls vs. Milwaukee Bucks matchup will air on ESPN. This game will replace the original Friday night ESPN matchup of the Washington Wizards vs. the Toronto Raptors.
Chicago is currently in the midst of a four-game losing streak. They are currently without several key players such as Zach LaVine, Lonzo Ball, Alex Caruso, and Javonte Green. However, the Bulls do play a game Wednesday night against the Cleveland Cavaliers in which they can hopefully turn their luck around.
It's an exciting matchup. Friday will mark the first meeting between the Bulls and Bucks this season. Milwaukee is the reigning NBA and Central Division Champions. The Bulls currently sit atop the Eastern Conference with Milwaukee in hot pursuit only two games back.
No announcements for this game have been made public yet by the Bulls. They could still be short-handed come Friday. Though Alex Caruso is nearing a return, Zach LaVine and Lonzo Ball's statuses remain up in the air.
