The Chicago Bulls have gotten even more unfortunate news with the COVID-19 protocols and this might be the worst one yet. Their star player Zach LaVine is now joining eight other players in the league’s COVID-19 protocol.

At this point, the league needs to make sure that the Bulls do not play any games because there is clearly an outbreak within the organization and if they want to stop it from spreading to other teams and allow the Bulls to get fully healthy, their games must be stopped.

It is unfair to the Bulls organization and the rest of the league that they’re going to be without nine players. The league always states that their biggest concern and biggest mission is to make sure that their players are safe. Putting a team out there who could potentially have the virus is the last thing from safe and the league needs to take action on that.

Losing Zach LaVine is not going to be easy, but it already wasn’t for this Bulls team. He has been playing like one of the best players in basketball all season long as he’s averaging 26 points per game. It’s unfortunate for Chicago because, before this whole COVID-19 outbreak, they were playing great basketball and were showing the league that they are going to be a team to not mess around with come playoff time. Hopefully, things can get sorted out in Chicago and they will be back and playing basketball sometime soon.
