News broke later last night that Chicago Bulls rookie forward Doug McDermott will miss a projected 6-8 weeks following arthroscopic knee surgery on Saturday at Chicago’s Rush Hospital. McDermott underwent surgery for a minor minces tear that was inside his right knee.

Per Chicago Tribune writer K.C. Johnson, McDermott left the facility without crutches and is expected to make a full recovery. Leading up to the surgery, he did not play in Bulls previous five games. This season, he has played in 17 games  averaging 11 minutes and three points. The highly-profiled rookie has had some struggles adjusting to the faster pace of the NBA game after averaging nearly 27 points in his senior season.

Despite the struggles, McDermott has impressed his teammates, as well as coaches and staff, with his work ethic and will most likely do the same once he officially returns.
