The Toronto Raptors' issues with the coronavirus have worsened, prompting the NBA to call off their game scheduled for Sunday night against the Chicago Bulls. The league said the Raptors are dealing with positive test results, without disclosing how many, and that combined with ongoing contact tracing issues meant they would not have the league-required eight players available to play. Toronto played Friday without head coach Nick Nurse, several other assistants and staffers and starting forward Pascal Siakam because of virus-related issues.
Chicago led by 16 points, but was outscored 32-16 in the fourth quarter, a period that began with Phoenix going on a 9-0 run. The loss would end Chicago’s three-game win streak, leaving “the locker room hurting,” according to Donovan. Coby White summed it up best: “We were all hurt.
The Chicago Bulls have lost 12 games in a row to Toronto and they will be out to change that Sunday night when they visit the Raptors in Tampa, Fla. The Bulls' consecutive losses to the Raptors have been evenly split between home and away. The Bulls lost 106-97 at home to the Phoenix Suns on Friday night to end their three-game winning streak.
