Wednesday Game Between Raptors And Bulls Postponed

The NBA has postponed Wednesday night's game between the Chicago Bulls and Toronto Raptors. This is the second game that has been postponed today, as the Brooklyn Nets vs. Portland Trail Blazers contest for Thursday night has been as well.

Although fans never jump for joy when games are postponed, this was a necessity at the end of the day. The Raptors were not able to play the minimum of eight players required. Although they signed replacement players, at least one of them may be on their way to COVID-19 protocol. 

Before this, the Raptors already had seven players in protocol. That alone is troubling, but four more players from their roster are out for non-COVID reasons as well. 

Interestingly, this is the second game between the Bulls and Raptors to be postponed this week. Thus, these teams now will have to reschedule two contests before season's end. 

Alas, it's a shame that the game had to be postponed, as it was expected to be an entertaining one. The Bulls currently sport a 19-10 record and are second in the Eastern Conference, while the Raptors are 14-15 and 10th in the East.
