Bulls' Doug McDermott: Ruled out for Wednesday

McDermott (concussion) has been ruled out of Wednesday's game against the Lakers, Vincent Goodwill of CSN Chicago reports.

Wednesday's absence will mark the seventh straight game on the sidelines for McDermott, who just can't shake his lingering concussion symptoms and remains in the league-mandated protocol. He'll need to go through a controlled practice before ultimately being cleared, so once that happens, he should be considered on the brink of a return. His next shot to take the court will be Friday against the Cavaliers. Look for Nikola Mirotic and Denzel Valentine to be the main beneficiaries of McDermott's absence.
