It's never a good thing when there are more ice bags on the floor than sweaty jerseys and unrolled tape, especially with the postseason in sight. But this is the reality of Bulls basketball these days, and forward Luol Deng seems to be the latest poster child.

Deng has been fighting through a torn ligament in his left wrist for most of the year, and the injury seems to be winning. Deng played nearly 45 minutes in the Bulls' overtime win against the Detroit Pistons on Sunday but was 1-for-8 from the field, scoring two points.

Coach Tom Thibodeau was asked if he's concerned about resting Deng or at least keeping an eye on his minutes down the stretch.
