The Chicago Bulls are limping to the finish line of their season, and it appears that several key players will remain out of the mix when the team returns to the court Saturday.
The Bulls, who currently have the fourth-worst record in the NBA at 21-55, only have six games remaining on their schedule, including tomorrow’s showdown with the Toronto Raptors.
For that game, the Bulls will be without point guard Kris Dunn, as he deals with a back injury that has kept him out of action for the last few days. Otto Porter Jr. is also going to miss the game against Toronto, as he battles through a shoulder injury.
Zach LaVine, who hasn’t played since Mar. 18 against the Phoenix Suns, is still listed as doubtful, according to head coach Jim Boylen.

The Bulls have been struggling in a big way of late, losing 10 of their last 13 games as injuries have wreaked havoc on their lineup. Lauri Markkanen has already been ruled out for the remainder of the season due to fatigue, and with six games in the final 12 days of the regular season, it wouldn’t be surprising to see the team slow-play other injuries to their key players.
Tip-off between the Bulls and Raptors is set for 7 p.m. at the United Center Saturday night.
