Is it possible they’ll start to edit their schedule at some point to still try and get some games in?

Have the Bulls play the Pelicans tomorrow and the Mavs and Celtics play a makeup game against each other at a later date.

The only real issue I’d see here is travel and the teams upcoming schedule, am I missing another big issue?

They need to let teams expand the roster to maybe a few more 2-way contracts. Maybe even consider bringing back the bubble.

I was hoping we can beat up on a lesser celtics team but im kinda glad the game is postponed.

Had a rough road trip with injuries and guys out due to health and safety, now we can get in rest and recovery with practice and film time, get Lauri, Archi back with the team, hopefuly Otto will be ready by Friday, which is our next game.

If Lauri, Archi and Otto ready for Friday we can go on a run and win some games

This is getting pretty bad, I reckon the league will have to cut the season shorter than 72 games.

Regular season bubble is 100% unrealistic. Larger roster size might help - but even then you have the issue that players in the same team come to contact with each other and bigger rosters may simply mean more players having to isolate due to the covid protocol.

They should expand rosters to 20 players.

Yup. Make the last 5 minimum only - maybe even non-guaranteed - but even the NFL had an expanded practice squad with extra ability to protect and call-up, etc.

Heck, maybe allow each team to have 7 man "practice squads"... (but maybe that generally practice separately) - with the ability to call players up as needed.

They need to allow teams to call players up, this is only going to get worse once teams interact more & more with each other, and at an exponential rate. This postponement strategy won't work once a 1/3rd of the league is in this situation.

I'm sure we'll see at least a few nobodies have big games and maybe even launch their career.

They have only released the first half of their schedule so far. So the NBA can just reschedule it into the second half of the season to make it up.

This actually benefits the Bulls big time, they have had a rough schedule to start the season and now get a rare 4 days off to rest up and get some much needed practice time in. In a year where they have been making noticeable improvements, I look forward to see what improvements this team might make now with some extra practice time to work on things.

This was seen a mile away. I doubt if the Celtics will play any games this week.

Remember when we last saw Lauri and Sato play NBA basketball? Way back in 2020?

Time to just shut the league down for a bit.

Nba is rigged league. So it is okay for Bulls to just played 7 games with 4 players and with them our west trip would have gone 3-1 not 1-3, but cry babies Celtics lose 5 players with Brown,Smart,Teague,Theiss,Ojele,Pritchards,Nesmith,Green,Fall still available and their game is canceled. Refs robbed us Gsw and Clippers game and Nba steal Kings and Lakers game from us. This season is irregular imo.

They're probably going to be forced to shut down the season at some point. I wouldn't be opposed to just seeing a March Madness-style single elimination tourney in a bubble with all 30 teams.

Multiple players on your list are actually not available, but I guess I won’t change your mind on this.

Why do people who believe this crazy stuff still follow the NBA? I don’t get it.
