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.

Espn injury list have only Tatum,Thompson and both Williams out from covid protocol. My problem is why Silver let Bulls play 7 games without 4 players and canceling games for other teams. I want equality in those type of decisions. To answer your question i cannot watch these kind of games anymore. Mainly watching only Bulls because i still have little passion about them.

Brown, Green and Ojeleye are also in COVID protocol and were ruled out for that postponed Heat game. There might be more guys now, who knows. Marcus Smart is dealing with an injury too. At some point it’s just too much.

Nobody wants to see more of that Sixers Nuggets game last week, right?

Feels to me the league's contact tracing protocols are too severe, especially given that its likely a lot of people whom are forced to sit out are already likely immune. Would be interesting if they were able to do antibody tests and exclude people from contact tracing that show immunity.

They should be considered essential. They are essential to my mental health.

They should be considered essential workers and get immunized. They are essential to my mental health.

Optimistically, this helps from a return from COVID perspective as well as giving Coby some time for his ankle to heal-up...he looked gimpy in Clips game.

The Bulls still had a healthy 8-9 man rotation, the Celtics have 7-8 guys not available.

This. Under the circumstances teams should be able to carry more players. Especially with this condensed schedule where fatigue and ultimately injury is going to be more of a factor.

Bogut said players are permitted two (random) guests per hotel room. If true that's the dumbest thing I've heard in awhile.

With that said, I'm glad our guys get a breather and chance to regroup. They've been playing heavy minutes in games down to the wire. Hopefully they'll be at close to full strength on Friday.

NHL allowed teams to use ''taxi squad'' named rotation which are players who travel with the team
but playing time is not guaranteed and allowing that taxi squad in NBA would be good idea
because that would help all teams to play all games as planned
so why not NBA cannot even try or test that.

I'm always thought that Gary Bettman is most idiotic commissioner in North American sport.
But now it shows that Adam Silver isn't better than Bettman.
What a goddamn joke.

I don’t think the bubble is practical but they should definitely expand the rosters so that any team has the ability to dress the appropriate number of players in any given game. With the G League that shouldn’t be a problem. Canceling games like this isn’t sustainable.

Yeah I thought about the G-League, but aren't they playing their season at the Disney World bubble this year?

Hope they use the extra time off this week working on the defense, especially the perimeter and defending the 3 point shots. If they can just get to league average with that kind of offense (even a slight dip), we might have something here.

I don't think so. If the NFL/MLB powered through their respective seasons NBA is going to do the same. too much $$ at stake and honestly there haven't been nearly enough cancelled games where they'd need to be discussing that yet.

**** Kyrie though and other guys not taking this seriously. Super selfish to fans like us/all of the other people who depend on the league to run for paychecks.

I wouldn't mind teams that don't have a sufficient number of players simply forfeiting the game, as in soccer.

But whatever, hope we use it as an opportunity for rest and coaching.

Well weak teams with 7 guys were forced to play I am pretty sure the Bulls will too.
But celtics are the elite so they will never play at a disadvantage. its rigged.

Every team has had 8 players but Philly chose not to play Mike Scott after upgrading him to available and left Ben Simmons off of the injury report, there was no rigging just incompetence from Philly.

Exactly. This isn’t any kind of conspiracy theory against the Bulls or anyone else. Philly played it stupidly and it backfired.
