CHICAGO (WGN) – With a host of players currently on the NBA’s health and safety protocol for COVID-19, the NBA is giving the Chicago Bulls a chance to stay healthy over the next few days.

The NBA confirmed Monday that the Bulls’ Tuesday game against the Detroit Pistons at United Center along with their road game on Thursday against the Toronto Raptors have been postponed due to multiple COVID-19 cases on the team.

Currently, ten players are within the league’s health and safety protocol along with staff, including Alize Johnson, who was added Monday morning.

Despite the ongoing COVID-19 issues, the Bulls have continued to play, losing their last two games with a roster decimated by positive virus tests.

As of Monday, DeMar DeRozan, Zach LaVine, Coby White, Ayo Dosunmu, Troy Brown Jr., Derrick Jones Jr., Javonte Green, Matt Thomas and Stanley Johnson along with Alize Johnson have joined the COVID-19 protocol.

Nikola Vucevic was forced to miss more than a week due to a positive COVID-19 test in November before the larger outbreak began.
