Bulls Reportedly Will Receive Permission from the State to Resume Use of the Advocate Center

Chicago Bulls

Today, the Governor of Illinois noted that his state is the only one so far to satisfy the initial reopening metrics as laid out by the White House.

Obviously that hasn’t stopped other states from aggressively opening up, but it certainly feels like an important moment in Illinois’ process as it relates to sports. Surely guys can start working out at facilities now, right?

Right:

As noted today by Marc Stein, the vast majority of NBA teams had received permission to start these kinds of workouts, so it’s nice to see that the Bulls will be joining that group on Friday, and doing so safely.

As for how the voluntary workouts fit into a return timeline, while much is still up in the air, you’d roughly be looking at something more official on the training side not kicking off until July:

With only a small portion of the regular season to finish (if at all), and the ability to punt the start of next season to December or January, the NBA still has plenty of time to work out their return schedule. In the meantime, Bulls players will be able to get back to training at the Advocate Center, if they choose.
