Despite suffering their own issues with the positive tests and contact tracing, the Bulls have so far not been at fault for any of their postponements. The previously pushed back games against the Celtics and Grizzlies were due to neither team having enough active players available to play.
The Bulls will now have some additional rest before their first prime time, nationally broadcasted game of the season on Friday against the Philadelphia 76ers.
