Sunday's game between the Toronto Raptors and the Chicago Bulls has been postponed due to COVID-19 health and safety protocols, the team announced.

The Raptors are dealing with multiple positive tests, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic, and due to ongoing contact tracing the team does not have the minimum eight players available to play. 

Pascal Siakam had already been ruled out for the upcoming week after he did not suit up against the Houston Rockets. Additionally, the Raptors also have six coaches including Nick Nurse in isolation, which led to assistant coach Sergio Scariolo earning his first NBA victory on Friday against the Rockets.

It's unclear who tested positive, how many players and staff were exposed, or how many additional games will be postponed. The Raptors were slated to play Detroit on Tuesday and Boston on Thursday before heading into the All-Star break. Toronto is already due to play eight sets of back-to-backs in the second half of the season, which was scheduled to begin March 11 against the Atlanta Hawks.
