Chicago Bulls forward DeMar DeRozan was aggravated following his team's loss in Boston on Monday, but not about his quad injury. DeRozan was forced to leave the game with a right quad injury that he suffered in the third quarter.
“I thought I tripped, but I guess apparently I tripped over nothing but the parquet floor,’’ DeRozan sarcastically said about what he felt was a missed call by the officials.
The Bulls star admitted he's been dealing with quad soreness for "like, eight games", but that he hoped it wouldn't cause him to miss a game for the first time this season.
“I feel fine other than it being real irritated, nothing too crazy,’’ DeRozan said. “It’s just in that spot that when moving, you just need that to simmer down. We’ll see how I feel (Tuesday).’’
