Bulls to be without star Zach LaVine in home game against Sixers

As the Philadelphia 76ers wrap up their quick two-game road trip with a matchup against the Chicago Bulls on Sunday, they will face a Bulls team that has beaten two of their best players — spelling trouble for Philadelphia given their losses to undermanned teams could.

The Bulls were already without Lonzo Ball due to his surgery, but now Chicago is without star Zach LaVine due to back spasms. LaVine averages 24.7 points, 4.8 rebounds and 4.3 assists on the season as he is a big reason behind Chicago’s successful season.

Without LaVine in the lineup, the Bulls will likely turn to Troy Brown Jr., who started in the previous game he missed for Chicago.

With Ball and LaVine out, the Sixers will focus on DeMar DeRozan and Nikola Vucevic to get the job done. Before everyone starts chalking this up as a win, it’s important to remember the teams the Sixers lost to. You must be ready for a fight in this one from the Windy City.
