Luol Deng SF MIA 10 Days

Deng scored 12 points (5-10 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-4 FT) and added three rebounds in 26 minutes of action on Wednesday.

After putting up a great performance on Tuesday, the team came out flat on Wednesday and Deng was no exception. He only contributed in points and rebounds for counting stats, but he did manage to shoot 50 percent from the field. He missed his only three point shot attempt.

Deng scored 23 points (9-12 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 2-4 FT) and added four rebounds, three assists, one steal and two blocks in 34 minutes of action on Tuesday against the Suns.

This is the best line Deng has put up in quite some time. In the last two weeks, prior to this game, Deng's highest scoring night was 13 points against the Grizzlies. This was a nice bounce back game and as long as he can stay healthy he will continue to play solid fantasy games.

Deng (hand) will start Sunday's game against the Grizzlies.

Deng did not play Friday due to a bruised right hand, but he was back at practice Saturday and will take the court as the starting small forward. The veteran has struggled of late, scoring just 14 combined points (2-10 FG) over his last two contests.

Deng (hand) is considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Grizzlies.

Deng is still nursing a bruised right hand, which kept him out of Friday's loss to the Bucks. He'll likely test it out during shootaround, and a final call on his status likely won't come until just before game time. Josh McRoberts (illness) is also considered questionable, so the Heat may be shorthanded on the wing.

Deng (hand) returned to practice Saturday.

Deng was officially listed as active for Friday's matchup against the Bucks, but ended up not playing in the contest. Consider him a game-time decision for Sunday's game against Memphis, but even if he does suit up, it may be in a limited capacity.

Deng (hand) did not play Friday against Milwaukee.

Deng was active for the game, but would only have been used in an emergency situation. He was limited in practice earlier in the week. His situation will need to be monitored to see whether he will play Sunday against the Grizzlies.

Deng (hand) is officially listed as active for Friday's game against the Bucks, despite earlier reports that he would not play.

The Heat originally had Deng not playing Friday and his official designation as active doesn't mean that he'll necessarily take the court. Even so, he'll be an option for coach Erik Spoelstra if needed.

Deng (hand) will not play Friday against the Bucks.

As expected, Deng will miss his second game of the season and should be considered day-to-day moving forward. His next opportunity to get on the court will be against the Grizzlies on Sunday.

Deng (hand) is likely to miss time due to his bruised hand, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.

Deng had X-rays on the hand that came back negative, but he was unable to undergo an MRI due to the continued swelling. "I wish it would have made more improvement today than [Wednesday], but there's still some swelling in it," Deng said. "But we'll see. I'm still going to take it day by day, try to be back as quick as I can." Deng sustained the injury against the Hawks on Wednesday and did not play in the second half. He said he's going to "give it a couple days," which would imply that he'll miss Friday's game against Milwaukee. However, the team is yet to officially rule him out, so there is still a chance he could take the court. After the Milwaukee game, the Heat play again Sunday in Memphis.

Deng (hand) was limited during Thursday's practice.

Deng was forced out of Wednesday's game with a bruised hand, and the injury was severe enough that he underwent a precautionary X-ray. The swingman is presumably still dealing with significant discomfort, so he should be considered questionable for Friday's meeting with Milwaukee.
