League sources told ESPN and the Chicago Sun-Times that LaVine is expected to miss multiple games after entering the league's COVID-19 protocols. The team hopes that LaVine will be out for only a few days, but the Bulls are scheduled to play five games in the next seven days.
Chicago's postseason hopes have taken a hit lately, as the Bulls have dropped four consecutive games to slip to 22-32 this season. The Bulls are currently 10th in the Eastern Conference and hold the final spot in the play-in tournament with 18 games left in the regular season.
LaVine was named to his first All-Star Game this season. The 26-year-old guard is averaging career highs in points (27.5), assists (5.1) and rebounds (5.1) in the 2020-21 campaign.
