In the first half of the Creighton Bluejays’ huge victory over the DePaul Blue Demons on Tuesday night, All-American Doug McDermott suffered an obvious shoulder injury, which he played with the rest of the way through with noticeable discomfort.
There is some good news, though. According to Gary Parrish of CBS, McDermott underwent an MRI on the banged-up shoulder and the results came back in Creighton’s and McDermott’s favor.
Results from Doug McDermott’s MRI are back. Sprained joint. Nothing serious. Should play Sunday vs. Xavier, a source told @CBSSports.

In helping lead the Bluejays to their current 13-2 record, McDermott has set himself up rather nicely as a potential Player of the Year candidate, averaging 24.3 points per game and 7.3 rebounds.
Should also be noted that while the McDermott news is good as he’ll have the time to rest up before they play Xavier on Sunday, they had another player suffer a set back on Tuesday when Grant Gibbs went down with a knee injury. The team is still waiting on Gibbs’ MRI results.
