More on this storyline

KC Johnson: Coby White, Javonte Green and DeMar DeRozan are available vs. Lakers, per Bulls PR. -via Twitter @KCJHoop / December 18, 2021

Tim Bontemps: The Celtics now say Brodric Thomas is in the health and safety protocols. That’s six players in the last 48 hours. Boston is down eight players for tonight’s game, including Dennis Schroder and Romeo Langford. -via Twitter @TimBontemps / December 18, 2021

Kristian Winfield: Got some clarity from the Nets: Kyrie Irving would not have entered the health and safety protocols if he was merely testing to return to the team. He has returned a positive or inconclusive test, which requires 5 days of consecutive negative tests for unvaccinated players. -via Twitter @Krisplashed / December 18, 2021
