PLAYERS: Luol Deng
TEAMS: Chicago Bulls
As yesterday’s Game 4 approached, Chicago Bulls forward Luol Deng and guard Kirk Hinrich continued to hold the label of unlikely to play. This proved correct, as both players were once again sidelined by their ailments.While he continues to recover from illness that sapped him of 15 pounds, Deng took a step toward returning by being active for last night’s contest. While he was active, he was still listed as unlikely to play, and he ultimately didn’t see time during the Bulls’ Game 4 loss to the Miami Heat.Deng has been out since the first round of the playoffs after complication stemming from a spinal tap. He’s been hospitalized and onlyrecently returned to the team. Being active was a good sign, but Deng is still expected to be sidelined for the remainder of the series.Hinrich was not active, as he continues to recover from his badly bruised calf. He was recently seen working out on the treadmill, but he hasn’t been able to do much running at all since suffering his injury. He’s been said to have a long way to go in his recovery, so it’s also likely that he’ll be out for the remainder of the playoffs.Follow @hoopsinjurynews

I blame the Bulls for the slander Rose is taking right now. If they would have handled this public relations aspect of this properly, people would have just assumed Rose was still legitimately hurt. Now, everyone knows that the only thing wrong with Rose is mentally he isn’t ready to play and they are jumping all over him for it. As long as it isn’t malicious, I think it is fair...

Nate Robinson Guarantees a Bulls Win; Derrick Rose Going to Sit This One Out

Wouldn’t it be cool if Derrick Rose seeing his team looking defeated and ready to surrender, took off his Brooks Brothers suit and went into battle with them? The Captain going down with the ship so to speak?  I doubt he could hurt his knee in one game right?  It would be symbolic that he is back and next season he will be a forced to be reckoned with. Yeah, that isn’t happening...

Bulls’ Nate Robinson suffers shoulder injury

The Chicago Bulls struggled in general during Game 4’s loss to the Miami Heat, but this was especially the case for guard Nate Robinson.
