Scott Agness: Doug McDermott (right knee bruise) will NOT play tonight vs Bulls. T.J. McConnell starts. It happened in the first half of Saturday’s win in Atlanta. He played 20mins in the second half, including the entire 4Q. An MRI returned “clean,” Nate Bjorkgren said.
J. Michael Falgoust: It's not official but Bjorkgren says "I think he'll play" about McDermott, who didn't return last game with back soreness #PacersSixers

J. Michael Falgoust: Matthews is in tonight but McMillan won’t reveal if he’s starting until 6:30. McDermott (ribs) is IN #PacersHornets
Dwain Price: An injured Doug McDermott dressed for Tuesday's game vs. PHX, but only because he didn't have a suit to wear. "With the (2/8) trade I left all my stuff back in New York and the suit didn't quite make it. I'll get the moving trucks and I'll have the suits ready for next time."
Tim Cato: Doug McDermott is not available for the Mavericks tonight, but he “will dress because he doesn’t have a sports coat,” says Carlisle.
Fred Katz: Doug McDermott (left knee soreness) is not with the team in Minny. Officially out for tomorrow night.
McDermott felt good. He figured he would be exiting the NBA's concussion protocol shortly and returning to trying to space the floor for teammates like Jimmy Butler and Dwyane Wade. The specialist put him through a battery of tests. "And then I got into the cab to get home and I just completely lost my head," McDermott said. "I didn't know where I was in Chicago. I finally got back to my place and just had a crazy headache. That's when I was like, 'Dang, this will take longer than I thought.' It was a real low point."
"There are still times it takes me a little bit to think of a play. That's something the specialist told me would take a little bit of time," McDermott said. "Coaches are aware of that when we go through walk-through and stuff. I may be a little slow. But I feel good. I've been sleeping good, no headaches."
Nick Friedell: Bulls say Doug McDermott (concussion protocol) has been cleared to play Friday night vs. New York Knicks. http://es.pn/2f2xInJ
Nick Friedell: Bulls are awaiting MRI results on Michael Carter-Williams' sprained left knee. Doug McDermott is in the league's concussion protocol -- but Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg is hopeful McDermott will be able to play Wednesday vs. Boston.
Doug McDermott underwent an MRI on his injured right knee Tuesday, and the Bulls listed the second-year forward as day to day with a strain. McDermott had a portion of his right meniscus removed in December 2014. There is no plan for a second surgery. "It's not in the joint," coach Fred Hoiberg said when asked about the possibility of a scope.
KC Johnson: Bulls PR said McDermott has a strained right knee, not a sprain. Considered day-to-day for now.

“One of the best players to ever play the game,’’ Antetokounmpo said after the Bucks fell into a 3-2 hole by blowing a 17-point lead. “He’s the best player in the world right now. We got to beat him as a team and make him make tough shots. And hopefully he’s going to miss. If coach wants to double him, we’ll double him”
Malika Andrews: Steve Nash said it “probably wasn’t ideal” for Kevin Durant to play all 48 minutes, adding: “but if he didn’t play 48, we probably weren’t winning tonight…. he was unbelievable to be able to handle that load.”
