Unfortunately for Bulls fans, that wont be happening.
Even if Deng was to have suited up tonight, given his illness, it was unlikely he’d have seen the floor for more than a handful of minutes. His status for Game 4 is still up in the air, though, it’s expected that if he does attempt to play, his minutes will be heavily reduced.
For guard Kirk Hinrich, the former Jayhawk remains sidelined with a calf injury after two MRI results proved to be inconclusive. Like Deng, he also remains questionable for Game 4 as he’s struggling to walk, let alone actually take the floor at the current moment.
The Bulls and Heat will tip off their Game 3 matchup tonight in the Windy City at 8:00 PM Eastern. The series is currently tied at one game a piece.
