Vonleh tested positive for COVID-19 on Monday and will be waived by the Bulls, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports.
Vonleh was not with the team for Sunday's preseason game in Houston, and even as a free agent he'll begin a mandatory 10-day quarantine. The 2014 lottery pick is yet to find a permanent home in the NBA, having spent time with the Bulls, Blazers, Knicks, Nuggets, Timberwolves and Bulls again within the last three years alone. Once he's cleared to return, he'll look to sign on with another team or potentially survey his options overseas.
Vonleh (undisclosed) will not play Sunday against the Rockets, Rob Schaefer of NBC Sports Chicago reports.
The Bulls' official injury report simply states that Vonleh is "not with the team," so it's unclear if the reserve big man will miss any additional time. In Friday's preseason opener, Vonleh was one of the bright spots for Chicago, finishing with 12 points, eight rebounds and a block in 12 minutes off the bench.
Vonleh agreed to a one-year contract with the Bulls on Thursday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Vonleh continues to bounce around the league. He's actually played for Chicago before, seeing 19.0 minutes per game with the Bulls in the second half of 2017-18. This time around, it's unlikely the 25-year-old will see that type of workload.
Vonleh finished with zero points (0-1 FG) in three minutes during Friday's 124-87 Game 3 loss to the Jazz.
Vonleh saw the lowest allotment of minutes among the 13 Nuggets who saw the floor in this one. He hasn't been a consistent part of the rotation since January and appeared in only three regular-season games following the restart, with this game representing his first playoff action.
Vonleh (ankle) is not listed on the Nuggets' injury report ahead of Saturday's game against the Cavaliers.

Vonleh (ankle) will not play Sunday against Toronto, Keith Smith of Yahoo Sports reports.
Vonleh was questionable coming in, but a sprained right ankle will keep him sidelined. Vohleh has appeared in just three games since Jan. 15 -- spending time with both Minnesota an Denver in that span.
Vonleh (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's action against the Raptors, Harrison Wind of TheDNVR.com reports.
Vonleh didn't take the court Friday due to the injury. However, he isn't a significant part of coach Michael Malone's rotation, so his availability shouldn't affect things too much.
Vonleh is questionable for Friday's game against the Clippers due to a right ankle sprain.
Vonleh logged just two minutes in Tuesday's matchup with the Pistons, so it's unclear as to when he suffered the injury. He likely wouldn't have much of a role in the rotation even if he is given the green light Friday night.
Vonleh was traded to the Nuggets on Tuesday as part of a four-team deal including the Timberwolves, Hawks and Rockets, Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic reports.
Robert Covington will head to Houston and Clint Capela to Atlanta as the headliners of the trade, with at least nine other players and draft picks also on the move. Vonleh averaged 4.1 points and 4.0 rebounds over 12.0 minutes with the Timberwolves in 29 games, though he hasn't seen game action since Jan. 15. He could fill a depth role in the frontcourt for the Nuggets, though he's unlikely to fill a significant role in the rotation.
Vonleh (coach's decision) didn't see the floor Monday in the Timberwolves' 113-109 loss to the Kings.
Vonleh hasn't been used in any of the Timberwolves' last nine games and looks to be behind all of Karl-Anthony Towns, Robert Covington, Gorgui Dieng, Jordan Bell and Naz Reid among the team's big men. Covington is a prime candidate to be traded ahead of Thursday's deadline, though player like Bell, Keita Bates-Diop and Kelan Martin seem more likely than Vonleh to benefit from any transaction.
Vonleh (back) played eight minutes off the bench and finished with four points (2-3 FG), three rebounds and one block in Sunday's 118-103 win over the Cavaliers.
Vonleh returned to action after missing the previous three games due to the back injury. He served as the backup to Gorgui Dieng and fared well in his limited minutes, but Vonleh may find himself on the outside of coach Ryan Saunders' rotation once Karl-Anthony Towns (knee) rejoins the Wolves' frontcourt mix.
Vonleh (back) will be available Sunday against the Cavs.
