Description: Heat forward Luol Deng is dealing wityh a thigh issue and missed the morning shootaround.
Insight: Deng should be considered questionable. While averaging 14.6 ppg, 5.0 rpg, 1.9 apg, 1.0 spg, we thought he would give up more after Chris Bosh was sidelined.

Insight: Deng finished a team-high 21 points, along with seven boards, two assists, one 3-pointer, and one steal. He will have to continue to step up with Chris Bosh sidelined the rest of the season.

Description: Heat forward Luol Deng led the team in scoring with 29 points as Miami defeated Philadelphia, 119-108, on Monday.
Insight: Deng hit 4-of-5 3-pointers and shot an incredible 11-for-14 from the field overall. Deng should continue to see more shot opportunities without Chris Bosh in the lineup, but don't expect him to have this kind of shooting night again.
 
2/3/2015 1:04:00 PM
Description: Heat forward Luol Deng participated in the team's shootaround on Tuesday and is expected to play versus the Pistons.
Insight: This is great news. Deng has missed the last three games with a calf injury. He should go back in lineups immediately if he suits up. Check back tonight to confirm his return.
 
2/2/2015 11:39:00 AM
Description: Heat forward Luol Deng (calf) has missed the past three games, but is probable for Tuesday's game against Detroit.

Description: Heat forward Luol Deng missed Tuesday and Friday's game due to a sore calf and has just been downgraded to out for Sunday's game against Boston.
Insight: With Dwyane Wade sidelined, it was a chance for Deng to post big offensive numbers. Danny Granger will get the start.
 
2/1/2015 10:43:00 AM
Description: Heat forward Luol Deng missed Tuesday and Friday's game due to a sore calf and is still questionable for Sunday's game against Boston.
Insight: With Dwyane Wade sidelined, it's a chance for Deng to post big offensive numbers if he can get out on the court. Danny granger would start if Deng can't play again.
 
1/29/2015 3:05:00 PM
Description: Heat forward Luol Deng missed Tuesday's game a sore left calf and has already been ruled out for Friday versus Dallas.

Insight: Danny Granger will likely start, with James Ennis seeing an increased role as well. Consider Deng day-to-day.
 
1/27/2015 1:36:00 PM
Description: Heat forward Luol Deng is doubtful for Tuesday's game against Milwaukee due to a sore left calf.
Insight: Deng missed the morning shootaround and will be a game-time decision at best. Too bad as he's played well in his last two games, including a 15-point, 10 rebound game versus Chicago on Sunday. Danny Granger would see more time if Deng is a no-go.

Cold1/9/2015 9:38:00 AM
Description: Heat forward Luol Deng had a rare off night shooting, going just 3-of-11 against Portland.
Insight: Deng is shooting 50 percent on the season, but perhaps all the trade rumors have effected his shot over the past couple of games. He's averaging 14.1 ppg, 4.8 rpg, 1.8 apg, 1.2 spg, but his fantasy value could change with a new team.
