it's obvious that he's still hurt. Deng in makes us just good enough to justify not tanking... that's what I meant to get across.
Do you think he is going to try to force himself to play through the injury again because the front office did not want him playing in the Olympics? I could see that happening; "they" were pretty vocal in their disapproval about his Olympic play. I would not doubt if he feels like he needs to do something for them in return.
It is difficult to say... but I think I would prefer Deng have the surgery and really give Butler the chance to build his game experience.
