The Chicago Bulls might be without three of their key players again in another contest against a Western Conference elite.
According to the Bulls more recent injury report, Zach LaVine, Coby White, and Garrett Temple are all still dealing with their respective ailments. Temple suffered a hamstring injury two minutes into the Bulls contest against the Golden State Warriors earlier this week, and he will now miss his second-straight game.
Meanwhile, LaVine’s sprained ankle caused him to miss his first game of the season on Wednesday night. The Bulls had him listed as questionable prior to that matchup, and he remains with that designation ahead of tonight’s meeting with the Jazz.
#Bulls' latest injury report for tonight:
Zach LaVine (ankle) — questionable
Coby White (neck) — questionable
Garrett Temple (hamstring) — out

Coby White is the other needed scorer that missed time this week. When he sat out the Bulls battle with the Suns due to a sore neck, it makes his first-ever missed game of his young NBA career. The team still has White listed as questionable for tonight with a sore neck, an injury that he told reporters is “progressing.”
White also seemed to hint that the pain stems from nothing more than a wonky night of sleep. I’m sure many of us can relate.
Coby White said he's "progressing" but doesn't yet know if he'll play vs. Jazz. White has missed the last two games with a stiff neck. They're the first NBA games he has missed. Said he doesn't know how he suffered the injury or what happened. Woke up with pain. "It was strange."
