The last thing the Bulls need right now is another serious injury, but it appears that's precisely what happened Friday night during a 90-77 loss to the Miami Heat.
Luol Deng suffered a sprained left ankle early in the third quarter and did not return. He left American Airlines Arena on crutches and definitely won't play Saturday night in Atlanta. He said afterward the injury was severe and he could be sidelined for two weeks.
Drew Gooden is already out with a sprained right ankle and Kirk Hinrich, of course, has been sidelined since November with a torn thumb ligament.
