The Bulls have spent much of the regular season dealing with adversity.
Whether it was injuries, players entering the health and safety protocols like it was a turnstile, or even a very memorable flagrant-2 that derailed the year more than the Bulls were willing to admit, it’s seemingly been one thing after another.
The gut punches didn’t stop coming on Tuesday.
Just before the afternoon practice ended and the Bulls headed up to Milwaukee, the team announced that All-Star Zach LaVine had entered the health and safety protocols for the coronavirus, putting his availability for Game 5 highly in doubt.
It was the second time this season LaVine was in the protocol, and the third time in the last year.
This comes after Alex Carusogoing in the concussion protocol on Monday. He remains day-to-day for Game 5.
