Chicago Bulls lose Lonzo Ball to covid-19 protocols
Chicago Bulls were deaklt a new blow at the weekend when Lonzo Ball had to enter coronavirus protocols and missed Sunday's win against the Pacers.
Lonzo Ball joined the long list of Chicago Bulls players to enter the NBA's health and safety protocols and was forced to sit out Sunday's game against the Indiana Pacers.
The Bulls clinch their third consecutive win, beating the Pacers 113-105 but Ball, Tony Bradley, Alfonzo McKinnie and coach Billy Donovan remain out for another 10 days at least until they return two negative covid-19 tests.
The 24-year-old guard is the 13th man on the Bulls roster to enter the protocols this month. Three of Chicago's matches were postponed in December due to the squad being so severely depleted.
Zach LaVine and DeMar DeRozan have since been given the green light to return, while Ayo Dosunmu, Matt Thomas, Alize Johnson, Devon Dotson, Coby White and Javonte Green have also cleared protocols.
