Injury Update: Luol deng likely to return tonight

New, comments

Luol Deng has missed the last 6 games for the Miami Heat, but should be available for tonight's game against the Hornets.

It's hard to tell how much they've missed him, but they will welcome him back soon. Luol Deng has missed the last six games for the Miami Heat, leaving rookie Justise Winslow with plenty more minutes and Gerald Green a starting spot. It's also meant spot minutes for Josh Richardson.

But tonight, Deng expects to return from a hamstring injury that has had him out for a while.

Luol's return will bring back another layer of defense and switches that the Heat need. With a small road trip to Charlotte and then on to Indianapolis on Friday night, his return will be valuable.
