What’s the buzz on Twitter?

KC Johnson @KCJHoop
Zach LaVine said he called DeMar DeRozan right after the game: “Let him know we got his back. Fingers crossed for his test tomorrow. He’s in good spirits, feeling good. Definitely called him just to say what up to him and celebrate the win with him.” – 11:19 PM

Zach LaVine says he called DeMar DeRozan immediately after the game to celebrate the win and check in on his teammate. He said DeMar was in “good spirits” after going into COVID protocol earlier today.
“Fingers crossed for his test tomorrow.” – 11:09 PM

Not many people expected the shorthanded Bulls to do what they’re doing to the visiting Denver Nuggets tonight.
With 6:01 left to play, the Bulls lead the Nuggets 98-83.
The Bulls are missing DeMar DeRozan, Alex Caruso, Coby White, Javonte Green and Patrick Williams. – 10:06 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
As soon as it’s confirmed that at least four Hornets have a positive COVID test, they can use a Hardship spot to add a 16th player to their roster.
Same scenario for the Bulls when/if it is confirmed DeMar DeRozan has a positive COVID test.
Once healthy, 16th spot goes away. – 6:37 PM
Jamal Collier @JamalCollier
So Bulls tonight vs Nuggets are without:
-DeMar DeRozan (health and safety)
-Alex Caruso (right hamstring strain)
-Coby White (health and safety)
-Javonte Green (health and safety) – 6:34 PM
Darnell Mayberry @DarnellMayberry
It’s unclear at this time whether DeMar DeRozan will travel to Cleveland with the Bulls tomorrow for Wednesday’s game, Bulls coach Billy Donovan says. – 6:27 PM
KC Johnson @KCJHoop
DeMar DeRozan participated in shootaround. His test result came back in afternoon. Again, Donovan doesn’t yet know if it’s a positive test or not. Just that DeRozan landed in health and safety protocols.
Donovan said Bulls are now testing more than once a day. – 6:25 PM
Julia Poe @byjuliapoe
DeMar DeRozan is out for tonight’s Chicago Bulls game in COVID-19 protocol.
Billy Donovan says he is awaiting further test results to confirm if this is a false positive or not. If that result is maintained, he would be the third positive Bulls player in the last week. – 6:20 PM
Joe Cowley @JCowleyHoops
Billy Donovan has more Covid issues – hello DeMar DeRozan. – 6:19 PM
Bobby Marks @BobbyMarks42
If DeMar DeRozan is confirmed to test positive for COVID-19, Chicago would be eligible to apply for a hardship exception and sign a 16th player.
– Patrick Williams (extended injury)
– Coby White (health/safety)
– Javonte Green (health/safety)
– DeMar DeRozan (health/safety) – 6:19 PM
KC Johnson @KCJHoop

Getting tonight’s #Nuggets game to the 4th quarter with a chance to beat the Bulls is one thing. Dealing with the most lethal closing-quarter duo in the NBA once you get there, is another. Breaking down Zach Lavine and DeMar DeRozan in the clutch instagram.com/tv/CXIG9bOFvqL…2:56 PM
Darnell Mayberry @DarnellMayberry
Zach LaVine and DeMar DeRozan as the league’s best duo, Lonzo Ball’s strange 3-ball, Brooklyn’s best pizza, a lost cellphone and a near murder in broad daylight…
Nuggets from my notebook from the Bulls’ two-game trip to New York.

More on this storyline

Michael Singer: Billy Donovan said he hasn’t heard any talk about a league suspension/pause given the surging COVID cases. Said the question is always if or what the number would need to be for a team to have too few players to compete. Reiterated he hasn’t heard that talk. -via Twitter @msinger / December 6, 2021
