Deng Tweets He’s ‘Back In The ER’

(CBS) Things keep getting worse for the depleted Bulls.

As the team prepares to take on the Nets in a crucial Game 7 in Brooklyn, they’ll do so without the services of Luol Deng, who tweeted he was “back in the ER” after undergoing a spinal tap Thursday.

On Friday, Deng fired off a series of tweets defending himself from those questioning his toughness and commitment.

“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.”

“On Wed I was taken to the ER and my symptoms indicated I may have meningitis.”

“As a result of the spinal tap I suffered the worst headache I’ve ever experienced and been the weakest I’ve ever felt.”

“Now I’m back in the ER where I may have to spend the night… I want my teammates and Bulls fans to know I would NEVER miss a game bc of flu.”

“If I’m medically cleared I will fly to NY to be with my team and try to win game 7.”

The Bulls will also likely be without Kirk Hinrich and Derrick Rose on Saturday.
