An MRI revealed that DeMar DeRozan has a Grade 1 thigh strain, the Chicago Bulls announced on Tuesday.
DeRozan revealed that he had been bothered by the thigh for over a month.
Billy Donovan downplayed the seriousness of the injury.
“I don’t think it’s significant. But we’ll see how he progresses and how he feels. He knows his body well. He’s always very conscientious about taking care of it. We hope with treatment and how diligent he is, he’ll progress,” said Donovan.
DeRozan was not ruled out for Thursday’s game against the Bucks.
