Chicago Bulls point guard Coby White will miss Sunday afternoon’s game against the visiting Brooklyn Nets after being placed in the NBA’s COVID-19 health and safety protocols.

“For him, he’s just got a test right now that they’re looking deeper into,” coach Billy Donovan said before the game. “We’ll probably find out more in the next 24-48 hours.”

White, 21, is averaging 14.8 points, 4.6 assists and 4.5 rebounds in 45 games (36 starts) in his second NBA season.
