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 is out with left knee soreness, per the Thunder.
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.”

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.

“John Havlicek is one of the most accomplished players in Boston Celtics history, and the face of many of the franchise’s signature moments,’’ the Celtics said in a statement. “John was kind and considerate, humble and gracious. He was a champion in every sense, and as we join his family, friends, and fans in mourning his loss, we are thankful for all the joy and inspiration he brought to us.’’
Mark Murphy: Bob Cousy and Tom Heinsohn confirm that John Havlicek has passed after a long bout with Parkinson’s Disease. Heinsohn: “A great athlete. The sad part is what he endured the last couple of years.”
Chris Forsberg: Tommy Heinsohn on John Havlicek: “He’s still the all-time leading scorer, isn’t he, with the Celtics? And justifiably so. He gets lost in the brouhaha over the [eras around him]… He became a total star.”
Orlando Magic president of operations Jeff Weltman said Thursday the franchise wants to bring back leading scorer and rebounder Nikola Vucevic, who is set to hit free agency. Weltman added a caveat: the All-Star center will have numerous suitors.
“Bringing Vooch back is a priority,” Weltman said. “That being said, Vooch is going to have a lot of teams who will make him a priority for them, too. We will meet with his representatives at the appropriate time. Hopefully we can get something done. It’s the NBA, and I always say there’s a lot of real estate between the intentions and what gets done.”
