Doug McDermott, who obviously doesn't have same injury history as Rose, was on active roster 5 weeks, 2 days after similar scope procedure.

KC Johnson

Thibodeau putting in McDermott.

KC Johnson

No McDermott in 1st half after logging just 4:16, 6:31 and 5:25 last 3 games. Likely drop out of rotation when Butler, Rose return.

Bill Simmons

Bulls let Korver and Asik go for nothing, traded 2 top-20 firsts for McDermott and gave away Deng for nothing in-season. Just sayin'.

Vincent Goodwill

If McDermott is gonna be out there, you might as well run some stuff for him.

Nick Friedell

Up to this point in year, McDermott's rookie season has been defined by 2 things. 1. Knee injury 2. Missing the open looks he got in college

KC Johnson

Thibodeau said he pulled McDermott in 2nd because of a bad matchup and rode him over Dunleavy in 4th to reward group that made run.

Chuck Swirsky

Niko and McDermott =17 off the bench

KC Johnson

McDermott scored 10 points in 5 minutes and got pulled. Thibodeau must really dislike his defense.

Rick Bonnell

Doug McDermott has scored 10 points in four minutes. Let the McDermott-vs.-Vonleh debate commence...

Vincent Goodwill

With the NCAA’s going on, maybe McDermott is acting like he’s in college again…drained another triple. 10

Vincent Goodwill

Even McDermott getting some rhythm on the floor. hit a three and cutting to the basket

Josh Newman

When Doug McDermott was here last year, the entire state of Nebraska came to Gotham. Now? Not so much.

Joe Cowley

Aaron Brooks was my "Pick to Click.'' The Mayor Joe Grube had McDermott and Stony had Noah. He did.

Bob Cooney

Doug McDermott has seven points off the bench for the Bulls. Those are the only points the Bulls have off the bench. #Sixers.

Joe Cowley

Remember last week when we all thought McDermott was ready to explode? That was awesome.

Vincent Goodwill

Pau Gasol with 19 and 6, Nikola with 12…and the shorthanded Bulls bench has no scoring aside from McDermott. Thus, 51-49 deficit

Sam Smith

Back to back McDermott baskets put Bulls ahead 29-26; must feel like summer league again seeing all those familiar faces from Vegas

Chuck Swirsky

McDermott with two quick fgs Bulls 29-26

Hinrich, Mohammed, Gasol, Snell and McDermott on the floor. Yep.

Nazr Mohammed at 5 now, with Hinrich and McDermott next up at the scorer’s table

That's McDermott's first 3-pointer since Feb. 7. Had missed his previous 4 attempts.

37-28 Spurs- McDermott's 3--1st fg outside the paint in 11min

Joe Cowley

Thibs just gave McBuckets an ear full.

Nick Friedell

McDermott, with both shoes on, comes back into the game. Meanwhile, the Bulls offense needs a jolt. 5 turnovers and plenty of poor sets.

Joe Cowley

McBuckets back after figuring out his shoe problem.

Nick Friedell

Snell comes back into the game for McDermott after McDermott couldn't get his shoe back on in time. Rough minute for the rook.

Sam Smith

McDermott has to sub out after losing his shoe; unclear if Madonna told him to do so as she did with Rodman

Vincent Goodwill

McDermott comes in, then comes out after losing his shoe

Joe Cowley

Shoeless McBuckets now sitting.

KC Johnson

McDermott leaves game with shoe malfunction.

Shoeless McBuckets on the court.

McDermott: "Frustrating missing so much time, then not playing well to have a game like this; wasn’t perfect, but something I can build off.
