    Heat's Luol Deng: Scores 15 points in team-high 40 minutes Sunday

    Deng had 15 points (5-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-5 FT), eight rebounds, and one assist in 40 minutes during the Heat's 100-93 loss to the Clippers on Sunday. Deng has been playing well lately, averaging 14.4 points, 5.2 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 1.2 threes, 0.8 steals, and 0.2 blocks in 32 minutes per game over the last five contests. He is turning 31 in April, but he has seen 30 minutes or more in every month during the 2015-16 campaign. This was only the second time this season he has seen 40 minutes or more, but Deng remains an integral part of the Heat's starting five even though he is posting career-lows in almost every statistical category.

    Heat's Luol Deng: Starting to turn the corner with 17 points Tuesday

    Deng finished with 17 points (7-13 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), eight rebounds and three assists during 29 minutes in Tuesday's 115-102 loss to the Rockets. Over his past three games, Deng is averaging 16.7 points and 6.3 rebounds while hitting two three-pointers in each of those contests. The Heat haven't seen much production from their bench -- and it won't get better with Tyler Johnson out -- which has led to Deng being asked to do more on offense. As a result of this Deng's shooting percentage lately (46.6) has looked closer to his career average (45.7).

    Heat's Luol Deng: Logs 31 minutes in return

    Deng played 31 minutes and finished with nine points (4-11 FG, 1-2 3Pt), four rebounds, one steal, and one block in his return to the court in Monday's 89-84 win over the Bulls. Deng missed just one game after suffering a scratch to his eye in last week's loss to the Wizards. His return was vital for a Heat squad that continues to deal with a litany of injuries throughout the roster, and Deng should continue to regularly play more than 30 minutes per game until the team gets a little healthier.

    Heat's Luol Deng: Upgraded to probable

    Deng (eye) has been upgraded to probable for Monday's game against Chicago, Jason Lieser of the Palm Beach Post reports. Barring a setback, it looks like Deng is set to return Monday, as he'll go through warmups with the intent to play. The veteran has been cleared, medically, and coach Erik Spoelstra spoke Monday morning as if he's full expecting Deng to be available. "He's been given the green light," Spoelstra said. "Having him back plugs a lot of holes for us."

    Heat's Luol Deng: Questionable for Monday

    Deng (eye) is questionable for Monday's matchup with the Bulls, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. Deng is one of eight players that has been listed on the injury report Sunday. He was forced to sit out of Friday's loss to the Raptors after being poked in the eye in Wednesday's loss to the Wizards. If Deng is held out, look for Justise Winslow to grab the start.

    Heat's Luol Deng: Out against Toronto

    Deng (eye) will not participate in Friday's contest against the Raptors, Ethan J. Skolnick of the Miami Herald reports. Deng left Wednesday's matchup against the Wizards early as he was poked in his right eye. The small forward is one out of six players on Miami that will be sidelined due to injury against Toronto on Friday. Assuming he recovers, Deng will likely make an appearance in Monday's tilt against Chicago.

    Heat's Luol Deng: Questionable for Friday

Deng was forced to leave Wednesday's loss to the Wizards after beign poked in the eye by Kelly Oubre. With Josh McRoberts ruled out and Hassan Whiteside listed as questionable, the Heat frontcourt could be limited to Chris Bosh, Udonis Haslem, and Jarnell Stokes. If Deng is ruled out, expect rookie Justise Winslow to start in his place.

    Heat's Luol Deng: Forced to leave with eye injury

    Deng was forced to leave Wednesday's game against the Wizards with an eye injury, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. Deng suffered the injury in the fourth quarter of a blowout, so it's unclear if it's anything serious or if they just kept him out to play it safe. We'll monitor his status, but until we hear more, consider him questionable for Friday's game against Toronto.

    Heat's Luol Deng: Double-doubles Monday against Warriors

    Deng delivered 14 points (6-12 FG, 2-3 3Pt), 10 rebounds, and two assists in 33 minutes during the Heat's 111-103 loss to the Warriors on Monday. Deng grabbed a season-high 10 rebounds with Hassan Whiteside (knee) ruled out on Monday and the Heat opting to go small by replacing him with Justice Winslow. During the last five games, Deng is averaging 9.2 points (39.5 FG, 25.0 3Pt, 92.9 FT), 5.2 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 0.4 steals, and 0.2 blocks in 31 minutes per appearance. His numbers on the year aren't much better, and 30-year-old forward is clearly on the back end of his career. However, nights like Monday show that he is still capable of filling up a box score every once in a while.

    Heat's Luol Deng: Falls short of 10 points for fourth time in five games

    Deng scored six points (2-8 FG, 2-7 3Pt) to go with four assists and two boards over 34 minutes in Tuesday's 99-90 overtime loss to the Grizzlies. Deng has provided fewer than 10 points in four of his last five games, an unfortunate byproduct of him regularly ranking as the fourth or fifth option offensively whenever he's on the court. His modest season averages of 10.2 points, 4.3 rebounds, 1.5 assists, and one steal to go long with a 42.7 percent mark from the field barely make him worthy of a roster spot in deep leagues.
