Luol Deng participated in part of Thursday's practice at the Berto Center and may play limited minutes Friday night when the Bulls play the Washington Wizards on the road.
"There is a chance," coach Vinny Del Negro said of Deng playing. "I want to see how sore he is [Friday] and see how he feels and we'll figure that out as we go.
"I thought he looked good [in practice]. He moved pretty good. He's still a little tentative, you can see, and he probably doesn't have a lot of confidence in it. But he was moving out there and he was moving."
Deng has missed 11 games with a strained right calf.
