Following the warning the Chicago Bulls received from the National Basketball Association about resting healthy players, they have responded by making it known that they will give more playing time again to their veterans.

"After the All-Star break, we had communication with the league office about Robin and Justin's roles", said Paxson, per ESPN's Nick Fridell.

The Chicago Bulls have allegedly been deliberately losing games to increase their chances of receiving a high draft pick. The NBA has reacted similarly in the past when contenders rest multiple healthy players on the night of a national TV game. It is engaging in a race to the bottom with other teams trying to position themselves for the NBA Draft lottery.

The Bulls have lost 14 of their past 17 games and publicly stated in mid-February that they would begin sitting Lopez and Holiday.

But Bulls Executive Vice President Bill Paxson says they and the league did talk things over. Lopez was averaging 25.5 minutes per game for the Bulls before the All-Star break, but has not taken the court for the team since.

That appears to be true: The Bulls plan to play Lopez and Holiday "more extensively" for "the remainder of the season", Yahoo Sports' Shams Charania reported Tuesday, citing league sources.

In Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island, there were also small decreases of less than 10 percent. The latest data shows that in 2016 opioid-related deaths increased 55 percent to 64,000 deaths in the U.S.

One day later, commissioner Adam Silver sent a memo to all 30 teams the content of which made it very clear that the league would not stand any kind of tanking.

So that's that. On the season, the Bulls are 21-42-making them the fourth-worst team out east.
