Zach LaVine and the Chicago Bulls will be playing against Chet Holmgren and the Oklahoma City Thunder tonight. As Bulls fans should be aware, their team hasn’t gotten off to a very good start this NBA season. At the moment, the Bulls hold a record of 5 wins and 12 losses. That gives them the 12th position in the Eastern Conference.
The Chicago Bulls will be taking on the OKC Thunder tonight, a team that has gotten off to a much better start in comparison. The Thunder currently have a record of 10 wins and 4 losses, giving them the 3rd position in the Western Conference.
As the Bulls and Thunder get ready to face off, let us take a closer look at the injury reports and expected starting lineups. Moreover, we can also find a prediction for this game between the Chicago Bulls and Oklahoma City Thunder.
Zach LaVine is listed as probable for the Chicago Bulls vs Oklahoma City Thunder game tonight
Bulls fans will be disappointed to hear that LaVine does not look completely healthy for this game. According to the injury reports, Zach is listed as probable for this game due to the fact that he is currently dealing with a foot injury. Not having him on the court will certainly hurt the Bulls since he is arguably their best player.
In the event that LaVine does not play, the rest of the Chicago Bulls roster will have to step up to the occasion and get this win against the OKC Thunder. That said, here are the complete injury reports and expected starting lineups for both sides.

The OKC Thunder are favored over the Bulls tonight
There is no denying that getting Chet Holmgren back has taken the OKC Thunder to the next level. Although the team was unable to even make the playoffs last season, they currently hold a record of 10 wins and 4 losses and are one of the best teams in the Western Conference.
