(Reuters) - Chicago Bulls' rookie forward Doug McDermott will undergo surgery on his right knee, the team announced on Friday. McDermott, who was the 11th overall pick in the last NBA Draft, has missed the past five games with the ailment and will require an arthroscopic procedure. McDermott was expected to provide the Bulls with premier perimeter shooting but has averaged just 3.2 points per game. No timetable is set for his return.
