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


Status: Active

UPDATE (Apr. 14):

Demar DeRozan will play against the Heat on Friday.

UPDATE (Apr. 07):

Due to rest, DeMar DeRozan is questionable for Friday’s game against the Mavericks.

With the Bulls locked into the 10th seed in the Eastern Conference, it’s not surprising that they’re thinking about resting some of their key players for the Play-In.

UPDATE (Apr. 05):

Demar DeRozan will play against the Bucks on Wednesday.

UPDATE (Mar. 29):

In Monday’s 124-112 loss to the Clippers, Demar DeRozan played 33 minutes and recorded 21 points (8-16 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT), seven assists, five rebounds, and two steals.

Despite dealing with a quad strain, DeRozan played well in both games of a back-to-back set on Monday.

UPDATE (Mar. 27):

In 36 minutes on Sunday, Demar DeRozan finished with 17 points (7-13 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six rebounds, 10 assists, and one block in the Bulls’ 118-108 victory over the Lakers.

DeRozan returned from a minor quad strain he suffered on Friday to post his third double-double in as many games.

Over 10 healthy games in March, the veteran forward has been a rock for the Bulls’ playoff push, averaging 26.7 points, 6.1 rebounds, 5.8 assists, 1.7 steals, and 1.4 threes.

UPDATE (Mar. 26):

DeRozan (quadriceps) told K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago, “everything’s a go” for Sunday’s game against the Lakers.

DeRozan sat out on Friday due to a strained right quad, but he’ll be ready to go for Sunday’s game in Los Angeles, the first of a back-to-back.

UPDATE (Mar. 24):

Due to an injury to his quadriceps, DeRozan might not be able to play against the Trail Blazers on Friday.

DeRozan had to leave Wednesday’s game against Philadelphia because he hurt his right quadriceps.

It’s still not clear if he’ll be able to play on Friday on the road. The same problem kept him out of five games in January and February, but the Bulls are still trying to make it into the play-in tournament.

Chicago could use more of Javonte Green (knee) and Derrick Jones if he can’t play on Friday.

UPDATE (Mar. 23):

Demar DeRozan suffered a right quad strain and will not return to Wednesday’s game, K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

Now, he should be considered questionable at best for Friday’s game in Portland. The good news is that DeRozan was able to walk off the court under his own power.

UPDATE (Mar. 22):

DeMar DeRozan played all 46 minutes and finished with 25 points (10-22 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 5-6 FT), 8 rebounds, 3 steals, 2 assists, and 1 block during Monday’s 109-105 double-overtime win over the 76ers.

The 33-year-old forward has scored more than 20 points in five straight games and eight of nine in March, averaging 27.8 points, 6.1 boards, 5.3 assists, 1.9 steals and 1.3 threes on the month while shooting 52.7 percent from the floor and a surprising 44.4 percent (12-for-27) from long distance.

UPDATE (Mar. 20):

Saturday night’s 113-99 victory over the Heat was a huge one for the Bulls.

The Bulls were led by DeMar DeRozan, who played a season-high 41 minutes and contributed 24 points (10-15 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 5 rebounds, 10 assists, and 3 steals.

UPDATE (Mar. 18):

On Friday, in a 139-131 double-overtime victory over the Timberwolves, DeRozan scored 49 points (15-25 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 17-18 FT), grabbed 14 rebounds, dished out 4 assists, and swiped 3 steals in 52 minutes of action.

DeRozan’s 49 points are the most he’s ever scored in a single season and the third-most he’s ever scored in a single game in his entire professional career.

UPDATE (Mar. 17):

Wed. night, Toronto lost 117-114 to Sacramento despite DeRozan scoring 33 points (10-20 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 9-11 FT) in 40 minutes. His stat line includes three boards, three dimes, and two pick-offs.

DeRozan scored his most points for the Bulls since January 7 on Wednesday, but it wasn’t enough as Sacramento won by a single point in the game’s final seconds.

The veteran forward’s offensive confidence has been dwindling as of late. Yet he’s been a consistent scorer as of late, averaging 23.4 points on 52/42/77 percent shooting in his last nine games.
