The NBA announced Monday that the next two Chicago Bulls games will be postponed. The Chicago Department of Public Health stepped in, which helped sway the NBA's decision.
The Bulls were slated to take on the Detroit Pistons Tuesday in Chicago. With 10 players now in the NBA's health and safety protocols, the game will be rescheduled. The next game to be moved is Thursday's matchup against the Raptors in Toronto.
Fans and media alike have been calling for the NBA to step in and postpone these games. The Bulls are down to eight players that can dress if they were to play Tuesday. An article released earlier highlights all the Bulls players who have been affected by COVID-19.
If no more games are postponed, the Bulls will take on the Los Angeles Lakers this upcoming Sunday at the United Center. The last game they played was Saturday night's loss to the Miami Heat. That will give the Bulls eight days between playing games to get healthy and ready for their next matchup.
