As the teams who are swirling around the bottom of the NBA toilet bowl fight with each other to get to the bottom the fastest, more of their players will suddenly need “rest” or have “injury issues”. For the Chicago Bulls, who need to get inside the top 5-6 draft picks in the worst way, and a healthy dose of Zach LaVine on the court could be a major impediment to that end.
Luckily for them he does not play in both ends of a back-to-back and that will be the out for holding him out tonight against Brooklyn.
Bulls’ plan with Zach LaVine remains the same. He will not play in both ends of a back to back. Bulls next back-to-back is Monday and Tuesday against Brooklyn and Charlotte.
