Vonleh was on an unguaranteed contract. The Bulls already had 15 players with guaranteed salaries. The regular-season roster limit is 15 players on standard contracts.
So, Vonleh was likely getting waived, regardless.
Still, this is an unfortunate way for his longshot regular-season roster push to end. Hopefully, he recovers quickly and smoothly.
This situation is distinctive with Chicago waiving Vonleh. But teams handling coronavirus diagnoses is an ongoing concern.
