Creighton got some good news to kick off the day, as the injury that Doug McDermott suffered to his shoulder in Tuesday’s win at DePaul was determined not to be serious.

He underwent an MRI on Wednesday. That MRI showed that he sprained a joint in his left shoulder, according to a report from Gary Parrish of It’s not serious, and the soon-to-be three-time all-american should be in the lineup on Sunday against Xavier.

The Bluejays are still playing the waiting game, however.

McDermott wasn’t the only guy that got hurt last night. Sixth-year senior point guard and leader Grant Gibbs was on crutches after the game after hurting his right knee. The results of his MRI are not yet known.

    Interesting…usually MRI results being “negative” means no tears or structural problems found. Which is a positive thing. This headline made me nervous for CU. But I guess it is a positive…confusing.
