Bulls Lose as Luol Deng Sits With a Strained Hamstring

We've talked about ti before, but the Chicago Bulls are the poster children for this site.  They have had more injuries than just about any other NBA team this season.  Luol Deng is another Bulls' player to add to the list of time lost due to injuries.  Last night, he sat out the Bulls game against the Memphis Grizzlies with a strained hamstring.

According to Vaughn McLure of the Chicago Tribune, Deng is listed as day-to-day, but the Bulls' forward would not comment on how long he thought it would be before he returned to the court.  This is the first time injuries have kept Deng out of an entire game this season, but he has certainly dealt with his fair share of bumps and bruises.


The Bulls, despite all the injuries they've dealt with, have managed to maintain a solid record in the Eastern Conference.  And with Derrick Rose slated to return in the coming weeks, the team could surge toward the playoffs.  As it stands now, the Bulls are 23-16 and in fifth place in the Eastern Conference.

Deng has been a key player for Chicago in Rose's absence.  This season he has averaged 17.4 points per game and 6.4 rebounds per game.  Those numbers are slightly up from his career averages of 16.1 and 6.4.
