It looks like the Chicago Bulls may once again have to face the Miami Heat without starters Luol Deng and Kirk Hinrich. As of last night, Deng still wasn't in Miami, and he's not going to suit up for the Bulls, while Hinrich continues to be doubtful due to his severe calf injury, according to K.C. Johnson of The Chicago Tribune.Didn't get reception in Bulls' swank hotel so late w/ this: Deng not in Miami, out for Game 2. Hinrich doubtful. #Bulls— K.C Johnson (@KCJHoop) May 7, 2013 Deng didn't travel with the team has he remains incapacitated after receiving a spinal tap last week. The procedure resulted in spinal leakage which caused Deng to experience migraine headaches and general disorientation. He had reportedly recovered to an extend over the weekend, but he was back in the hospital on Sunday and watched Game 1 from a hospital bed.Hinrich continues to be hampered by a calf injury that occurred during the Bulls' first-round series against the Brooklyn Nets. He sustained the injury when he took a charge from Nets point guard Deron Williams. He's doubtful to play yet again, and it appears the calf will keep him out of at least one more contest.Even without Deng and Hinrich in Game 1, the Bulls were able to defeat the heavily favored Heat. This happened in large part to the huge performances by Nate Robinson and Jimmy Butler.Follow @hoopsinjurynews
