Luol Deng's MRI revealed that he has a severe contusion in his left wrist, but nothing broken. What that basically means is he has a really deep and painful bruise, but no fracture. That is a good thing for the Miami Heat.

Deng said on Wednesday that if nothing was wrong with it and it was just pain, he would play Game 6 against the Toronto Raptors.

We don't know how affective or comfortable he will be, but the Heat need as many bodies as they can while they are without Hassan Whiteside. Whiteside has no update as Spoelstra said all he expects him to do tomorrow is rest and rehab.
