Who out of this Chicago Bulls young core in the third year of the rebuild loses most by the halting of NBA action for at least 30 days?
In the midst of the fourth day without NBA action, fans of the Chicago Bulls might be starting to get restless. Pretty much every major phase of the sports world (barring a few events here and there) are on lockdown due to all the global novel coronavirus precautions. Each of the major sports leagues domestically are on hiatus at the moment, including the NHL, NBA, MLS, and MLB.
The Bulls saw their season put on hiatus after beating the Cleveland Cavaliers at home on March 10 at the United Center by the final score of 108-103. Then the team would wind up flying back from Florida before they were able to take on the Orlando Magic on the road, which was a game that was scheduled for March 12.
With the Bulls season now placed on paused, thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic precautions, they currently sit with a record of 22-43 through their first 65 games of the 2019-20 regular season. They were well out of the playoff picture when the NBA put its season on hiatus, so they likely won’t have much to play for the rest of the way if there are more games before the end of the 2019-20 campaign.
If nothing else, this hiatus on the season will at least let a few Bulls players with a rather fuzzy injury history of late get healthier and rest up if there are any more games to be played. It was just within the last couple weeks that the Bulls started getting healthier in the first place.
Here’s a look into the three players that lose most from the Chicago Bulls with the NBA putting its season on hiatus amid the COVID-19 scare.
