Description: Heat player Luol Deng will be one of the best rebounders and passers at the small forward position this season.
Insight: Deng takes on LeBron James' role in Miami, and he should be among the league leaders in minutes played, rebounds and assists, especially for small forwards. The Heat could also ask Deng to score a lot if Dwyane Wade goes down with an injury.

Description: According to Mary Schmitt Boyer of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Cavs forward Luol Deng will start Sunday against New York.

3/22/2014 4:59:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers forward Luol Deng (ankle) will miss his third straight game Saturday against the Rockets, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
Insight: Deng's sprained ankle has come at a terrible time for Cleveland, who is also playing without Kyrie Irving (biceps) and C.J. Miles (ankle). Alonzo Gee has been starting in Deng's place but doesn't offer much fantasy value. Dion Waiters will continue to be the biggest beneficiary of the injuries.
