Bulls All-Star Enters Health and Safety Protocols

When it rains, it pours. Unfortunately for the Chicago Bulls, the string of bad luck just keeps on coming. K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports reports that All-Star Zach LaVine has entered health and safety protocols.

The Bulls just cannot catch a break, can they? They already lost Lonzo Ball for the rest of the season earlier this year due to a torn meniscus. 

Alex Caruso entered concussion protocols after getting hit in the face in Game 4 versus the Milwaukee Bucks. His status is still up in the air for Game 5. 

And now, the straw that could break the Bulls' back this season, their All-Star guard expected to be out for a must-win on Wednesday.

Chicago is on the brink of elimination after they lost in consecutive blowouts to the defending champions. 

The Bulls have not found an answer for the Bucks since they won Game 2 in Milwaukee. Over these last two games, Chicago has lost by a combined 54 points. 

The Bucks have locked up the Bulls offensively. In its three losses, Chicago has averaged just 87.3 points and has been held to just 36.7 percent shooting from the field.

With LaVine's status for the series likely done, he finishes his first ever postseason with averages of 19.3 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 6.0 assists, on 42.9 percent shooting.
