The Chicago Bulls' next two games have been postponed due to the COVID-19 outbreak within the team, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported.

Tuesday's (Dec. 14) home matchup against the Detroit Pistons and Thursday's (Dec. 16) road bout against the Toronto Raptors will be rescheduled at a later date.

As of Monday morning, 10 Bulls players had entered the NBA's health and safety protocols since December 1.

Coby White, Javonte Green, DeMar DeRozan, Matt Thomas, Derrick Jones Jr., Ayo Dosunmu, Stanley Johnson, Zach LaVine and Troy Brown Jr., and Alize Johnson remain sidelined.

While White and Green have passed their required 10 days in protocols, their statuses for Tuesday's game were unclear at the time of postponement.

The Bulls had only eight players available for the Pistons game - precisely the league minimum required to field a team, and thus, hold a game. 

The NBA postponed 31 games due to COVID-19 during the 2020-21 season. These are the first two postponements of 2021-22. 

The next game on the Bulls' schedule is now a home matchup against the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday, December 19. The Bulls' protocol-affected players will need to stay in protocols for 10 days, or return two negative PCR tests within a 24-hour span, then clear cardiac screening to be eligible to return.
