Broadcasters in Toronto will miss at least two games due to their potential exposure to COVID19. 

Thursday’s NBA match between the Toronto Raptors and Chicago has been postponed due to the outbreak of COVID 19 in the Bulls. 

The NBA announced on Monday that the Bulls will postpone at least the next two games, including Tuesday’s Toronto game and a home game against Detroit. 

According to the League, there are currently 10 Bulls players and additional staff in the NBA’s Health and Safety Protocol. Bulls Star Zach LaVine and backup striker Troy Brown Jr. were included in Sunday’s COVID 19 log, with striker Alize Johnson joining on Monday.

They will be joining major goal scorers DeMar DeRozan, Matt Thomas, Coby White, Javonte Green, Derrick Jones Jr., Ayo Dosunmu, and the recently signed Stanley Johnson.

Raptors broadcast stopped due to possible exposure 

Toronto Raptors may have been exposed to COVID19, club television duo Matt Devlin and Jack Armstrong may have to be away from the team. 

According to a statement from the team, Devlin and Armstrong will miss at least two games because they may have contacted someone outside the organization who tested positive for COVID19. “As a result, and with great care, Matt Devlin and Jack Armstrong decided to leave work for a while and monitor themselves,” the statement said. 

“This action is not required by the NBA, but we are particularly aware of the examples Matt and Jack have set up for so many people across the country and are grateful for their consideration and responsibility. ” 

The Paul Jones and Leorautins broadcast team will handle today’s match against Sacramento Kings at TSN.

 Tuesday’s street game with Brooklyn Nets will be called remotely from Toronto by Sportsnet’s Eric Smith and Amy Audibert.
