The status of DeMar DeRozan's injury has been disclosed by the Bulls

Injury: Quadriceps

Status: Active

UPDATE (Jan. 19): DeMar DeRozan (quadriceps) is not listed on the game day injury report for Thursday’s contest in Paris against the Pistons.

After missing three straight games with a quadriceps injury, it’s not surprising that DeRozan is not on the injury report because he practiced Monday and said afterwards that he expects to play Thursday.

UPDATE (Jan. 16): DeRozan is official out for the Bulls.

UPDATE: DeRozan’s status for Sunday’s game against the Warriors is up in the air due to a quad injury.
The good news for the Bulls is that the quad strain does not appear to be too serious, so he should be back on the court soon.

Since DeRozan has been out with a quad strain and missed the previous two games while recovering, his status for Sunday’s game is currently unknown.

The NBA injury report has DeRozan as “questionable” for Wednesday’s game against the Washington Wizards.

If DeMar DeRozan is unable to play on Wednesday, he will be able to return to the lineup in time for Friday’s game against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Good news is that the five-time All-Star probably won’t be out for too long with the injury he suffered, but bad news is that he probably won’t play in that game.

On Sunday, Stephen Curry and the rest of the NBA champion Golden State Warriors will visit the NBA regular season champion Chicago Bulls. The Bulls want to make a statement with a win. Hopes are high that DeRozan will be able to play in the much-anticipated match.

In the event that Alex Caruso misses another game, he will likely be given another chance to start for the team. If he were to miss a third game, this would happen.
