Los Angeles Lakers head coach Frank Vogel has entered the NBA’s health and safety protocols, the team announced Sunday morning.
David Fizdale will coach the team for Sunday night’s game in Chicago, which will be the Bulls‘ first since a COVID-19 outbreak on the team led to the postponement of their last two games.
In addition to Vogel, Lakers swingman Kent Bazemore has also entered the protocols. Bazemore joins teammates Avery Bradley, Talen Horton-Tucker, Dwight Howard, Malik Monk, Kendrick Nunn and Austin Reaves in the league’s health and safety protocols.
The Lakers are also without Anthony Davis, who will miss about four weeks with an MCL sprain in his left knee.
