Acting head coach Chris Fleming said Bulls kept their traveling party small for this quick, two-game trip. So don’t expect any of players in protocols to play vs. Wizards on Saturday. None traveled. – 2:49 PM

In two games against the Pacers @Zach LaVine is shooting 52% avg 24 ppg . @Nikola Vucevic is averaging 16pts and 15 rebounds against Indiana. This will be DeMar DeRozan’s 36th career game against Indiana. For Nikola, his 32nd game against the blue and gold. – 2:24 PM

📅 On this day in 2020, the @Washington Wizards Russell Westbrook had 22 points, 10 rebounds, and 11 assists in a loss to the Bulls.

It was clear in preseason this would be a fun team. And it has yet to disappoint. They’re appointment television, no matter what. This season, they are the show.
