The Chicago Bulls aren’t being very forthcoming with the details regarding how long Luol Deng will be out. All we know is that his left wrist has a torn ligament. Per CSN Chicago (and SLAM’s) Aggrey Sam: “[Luol Deng] and Taj [Gibson] out today. Lu has torn ligament in his left wrist. Won’t have surgery. Week-to-week. ‘Out for a while,’ according to [head coach Tom Thibodeau.] Deng said that the pain in his wrist has decreased but his return will depend on how much he can manage it. He is officially week-to-week. The forward is averaging 15.9 points per game this season.”
