The NBA’s desired return to normalcy has been postponed.

The Bulls’ mounting coronavirus issues finally reached a tipping point with a 10th player entering the health-and-safety protocols.

NBA release:

The Chicago Bulls’ next two games – Tuesday, Dec. 14 against the Detroit Pistons and Thursday, Dec. 16 at Toronto – have been postponed. Ten Bulls players, along with additional staff members, are currently in the NBA’s Health and Safety Protocols.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN:

The Bulls have at least eight players available – the minimum required to play. But that has not been a hard rule.

Hopefully, everyone in Chicago recovers quickly and smoothly.
