The NBA season, as well as the rest of the sports world, has come to a screeching halt. Here’s the status of the Chicago Bulls are as the hiatus begins.

Well, at least Coby White cracked the Chicago Bulls starting lineup, right?

Now that the NBA pounded the pause button on the regular-season schedule after Rudy Gobert‘s positive diagnosis of the coronavirus, we’re all in a strange holding pattern, with no games coming for at least 30 days and possibly longer.

For Chicago, there won’t be any games played at the United Center until at least May 1, meaning there will certainly be plenty of downtime for the foreseeable future.

That gives us all plenty of time to dive into the team’s current state of affairs and the direction the Bulls are heading in. We probably won’t need that much time, since a quick glance at Chicago’s win-loss record clearly shows that the team has been very bad this season, but alas, here we are.

As it stands now, John Paxson and Gar Forman sit atop basketball operations, Jim Boylen is still charged with developing this roster into winners and yes, Coby White is finally an NBA starter.

As for the rest of the franchise, the Chicago Bulls and their 22-43 record might welcome this unexpected break as a time to lick their wounds, get healthy and perhaps eventually prepare to play the remaining 17 games on their schedule.

Here are three thoughts on the team as it heads into the hiatus.
