Luol Deng Playing With a Broken Thumb

by December 22, 2009

Luol is one tough SOB: “Before the game Monday against the Sacramento Kings, the Bulls revealed that forward Luol Deng has played with a fractured left thumb for about a week. ‘He hurt it in practice, I think right before the Lakers game [on Dec. 15],’ Bulls coach Vinny Del Negro said. ‘It’s been bothering him a little bit, but he’s been able to fight through it.’ The injury is on Deng’s off hand, allowing him to play through it.”
