Wednesday’s matchup between the Bulls and Raptors have gotten postponed, the Raptors do not meet the minimum amount of eight players to be available to play against Chicago. Another game that was postponed by the NBA today was Thursday’s matchup between Brooklyn and Portland due to Brooklyn’s COVID-19 outbreak and not having eight players available for their matchup.

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, today, Toronto found out forward OG Anunoby has entered the NBA’s health and safety protocols. That puts the Raptors at eight players in the protocols, including Fred VanVleet, Pascal Siakam, Scottie Barnes, Precious Achiuwa, Malachi Flynn, Gary Trent Jr, and Dalano Banton.

The Raptors will have postponed their second game already this week. Toronto was supposed to host the Orlando Magic last Monday. But the NBA postponed that matchup because of Magic players entering the NBA’s health and safety protocols. The Raptors will have a total of three games postponed so far this season including now two matchups against the Bulls.

Chicago had to deal with their COVID-19 outbreak last week, which caused the NBA to postpone the Bulls matchups last Tuesday against Detroit and last Thursday against Toronto. The Bulls had almost everyone on their team enter the NBA’s protocols, including superstars DeMar DeRozan and Zach Lavine. Devon Dotson was the latest Bull to enter the NBA’s protocols yesterday. Lavine was doubtful to play against the Raptors tonight.

Final Thoughts

The Bulls Get Almost Their Full Roster By Sunday

Chicago would have been happy to get on the court but they must wait until Sunday. Zach Lavine and others in the protocol should play on Sunday against Indiana. Alex Caruso will now have time to rest his foot before Sunday’s game as well, but will be out for another week. The Bulls will have back-to-back games against Atlanta on Monday on the road and Wednesday at home.
