Doug McDermott has entered the league’s concussion protocol after being hit in the head during Monday’s game against the Nets.
It seems to be a standard procedure for the Bulls reserve swingman. He is hopeful to be back for the game on Wednesday versus the Celtics but that seems unlikely given the history of the league’s protocol and the time it takes for a player to return to action. With McDermott expected to miss time, Nikola Mirotic could see a slight increase in minutes.
