Luol Deng tweets about his health situationPosted by Inside Hoops
Deng sent a series of messages via Twitter on Friday afternoon, explaining and updating his health status:
“It really upsets me that everyone thinks I would miss a game (because) of the flu. I’ve played a lot of games with the flu in my career.
“On Wed I was taken to the ER and my symptoms indicated I may have meningitis. In order to play on Thurs I was required to undergo a spinal tap.
“As a result of the spinal tap I suffered the worst headache I’ve ever experienced and been the weakest I’ve ever felt.
“Yesterday I was unable to walk or even get out of bed. I made it to the UC and was sent home. This morning my symptoms worsened.
“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 (because) of flu.
“If I’m medically cleared I will fly to NY to be with my team and try to win game 7.”
