LaVine, Brown Jr. in protocol amid Bulls outbreak

The Chicago Bulls‘ team-wide COVID-19 outbreak continued to spread further on Sunday, when Zach LaVine and Troy Brown Jr. entered the NBA’s health and safety protocols, sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Their additions brings the Bulls’ total to nine players in the league’s COVID-19 protocols since the start of the month.

LaVine and Brown Jr. join DeMar DeRozan, Coby White, Javonte Green, Matt Thomas, Ayo Dosunmu and Stanley Johnson as players all sidelined right now. Bulls broadcasters Stacey King and Bill Wennington are also at home in isolation due to the league’s protocols.

The Bulls do not play again until they host the Detroit Pistons on Tuesday night, but Chicago currently has nine players available on its roster and both White and Green will be eligible to rejoin the team this week. The NBA used an eight-player minimum as a threshold before postponing games during team outbreaks last season.
