LaVine enters protocols as Bulls face eliminationon April 26, 2022 at 6:11 pm

Chicago Bulls guard Zach LaVine has entered the NBA’s health and safety protocols on Tuesday and will be listed as questionable for Game 5 on Wednesday as the team faces elimination, coach Billy Donovan said.

Bulls coach Billy Donovan said LaVine was not feeling great Tuesday morning and will not travel with the team to Milwaukee later in the day. LaVine will have to go through more testing, which will give the Bulls more clarity on his status for Game 5.

LaVine is averaging 19.3 points in four postseason games against the Milwaukee Bucks, who have a 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven first-round Eastern Conference playoff series.

This will be the third time that LaVine has entered the league’s protocols, following stints in December and at the end of the 2020-21 season.

Game 5 is Wednesday night in Milwaukee.
