The Chicago Bulls‘ G League affiliate, the Windy City Bulls, have postponed games on Dec. 11 and 12 in accordance with the league’s health and safety protocols, the G League announced Saturday.
According to a release, positive COVID-19 tests within Windy City left the team with less than the league-required minimum of eight players for Saturday and Sunday’s scheduled matchups against the Sioux Falls Skyforce.
Both games were to take place at the Windy City Bulls’ home arena (the NOW Arena) in Hoffman Estates, and will be rescheduled at a later date.
In Ayo Dosunmu and Stanley Johnson, the big-league Bulls saw their sixth and seventh players in the last 11 days enter the NBA’s health and safety protocols hours before Saturday’s game against the Heat in Miami. There is no evidence of Windy City and the Bulls’ situations being related or a result of cross-contamination.
