Just over a week ago Chicago Bulls center Nikola Vucevic entered the NBA’s health and safety protocols. It was confirmed by the Bulls that at a minimum he would miss 5 games during the 10 day period. This will be the sixth game that Vucevic will miss.
According to reports now, Nikola Vucevic will miss more time including tonight’s contest against the New York Knicks. The last time the Knicks were in town the Bulls fell short in a toughly fought 104-103 loss. One of the key focus points the Knicks had was utilizing their bigs against an undersized Bulls roster. Missing the 7′ 0″ Vucevic will only magnify this weakness for the Bulls.
