All-Star weekend has served as a welcome respite for Derrick Rose and Luol Deng, who barely have been questioned about their various injuries.

"You had to bring that up, didn't you?" Deng said, jokingly.

Deng averaged 38.3 minutes in the 10 games he played after missing seven with the torn ligament in his left wrist that he suffered on Jan. 21 against Charlotte. Deng decided to avoid surgery and play through the pain, making treatment part of his daily routine.

"As long as I have something I can manage, I'll be fine," he said.
