Zach LaVine in Health and Safety Protocols, Bulls Say

The Bulls announced that they would be playing Game 5 without Zach LaVine, who has entered the NBA’s Health and Safety protocols.

The Bulls are down 3-1 to the defending champion Bucks.

LaVine has emerged as a go-to option for the Bulls, averaging 24.4 points, 4.6 rebounds, and 4.5 assists per game on 47.6 percent shooting from the field and 38.9 percent from long distance. Through the first round, LaVine has put up 19.3 points per game.

Without LaVine in the lineup, the Bulls will have to rely on DeMar DeRozan and Nikola Vucevic to anchor the Bulls.
