Chicago Bulls forward Luol Deng missed Game 6 due to the viral flu, and his case had worsened as of yesterday afternoon. This has Deng doubtful to appear in today’s Game 7 matchup against the Brooklyn Nets, according to ESPN Chicago.Deng’s condition got so bad yesterday that he was taken to the emergency room."It really upsets me that everyone thinks I would miss a game bc of the flu. I've played a lot of games w the flu in my career," Deng tweeted Friday afternoon.Deng was in the hospital Wednesday to undergo a spinal tap to check for meningitis. He returned home after the procedure, but he was sent back to the ER yesterday when his symptoms worsened. He relayed his last few days to Twitter followers."As a result of the spinal tap I suffered the worst headache I've ever experienced and been the weakest I've ever felt," Deng tweeted. "Yesterday I was unable to walk or even get out of bed. I made it to the UC and was sent home. (Friday) morning my symptoms worsened."Deng added that if he’s medically cleared to play, he’s planning on getting on a plane and joining his teammates in New York. It now appears the Bulls could be without Deng and Kirk Hinrich – who’s listed as a game-time decision – while Nate Robinson and Taj Gibson were also battling the flu through Game 6.Follow @hoopsinjurynews
