The NBA announced Sunday morning that the matchup between the Chicago Bulls and Toronto Raptors has been postponed in accordance with the league’s Health and Safety Protocols.

The game was scheduled to take place at Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida, but positive test results and ongoing contact tracing within the Raptors was going to leave Toronto without the league-required eight available players to proceed. Coming into Sunday, Pascal Siakam had been ruled out due to the protocols.

This is the third Bulls game to be postponed this season. It is the Raptors’ third game to be postponed. A makeup date has not been announced. The Raptors were without head coach Nick Nurse, five members of the coaching staff and Siakam in a win over the Rockets on Friday.
