|English: Luol Deng playing with the Chicago Bulls (Photo credit: Wikipedia)|
Chicago Bulls small forward Luol Deng sprained his right ankle in the first quarter of Tuesday night's 120-97 loss to the Houston Rockets.
Deng stayed in the game after the injury, which we don't recommend, and played 36 minutes. He was seen limping badly (hence why you should leave the game when the injury occurred) out of the United Center.
Afterwards he said, "We'll see. I twisted my ankle in the first quarter. We'll see how it feels."
Deng should have been taken out of the game- the Bulls were already down 35 points in the second half and there was no coming back from that kind of deficit.
He has already been suffering with a strained muscle in his left shoulder, as well as a torn ligament in his wrist since he decided not to have surgery this summer on the injury. Deng has not missed a game this season, and is averaging 18 points and 8 rebounds per game.
