Default Luol Deng possibly out for the rest of the season.

I just saw on the Bulls pregame that Luol Deng aggravated his calf injury and will be out for another 2-3 weeks. I feel bad for this guy, he just can't stay healthy.


This has been an unlucky season for us injury wise and there's not much you can do but keep playing hard.

Bummer. Once Luol gets a taste of the bench, he can't get enough. Maybe this is the Bulls in tank mode now?

I really wouldn't mind if Deng doesn't come back next season.

I agree. It's like...why risk anymore injury when we can regroup next year and have a realistic shot at going to the 2nd round in the playoffs with a FA addition and internal improvements.

At this point, if they move Luol Deng, I wouldn't feel the least bit bad about it. Hopefully, they will stop drafting Duke players. They never pan out in the pro's man for real.

Are they cursed or something?

If it isn't injuries, it's dumb decisions or them not living up to the hype.

Look at the Duke players they've drafted:

Jay Williams ended his career by crashing his motorcycle, not to mention the fact that those things are prohibited in their contracts.

Elton Brand, nothing but a black hole, did nothing to make his teammates better and had all the hype as the next great Bull and never lived up to it, now he is often injured and is nowhere near the level he came in at.

Chris Duhon probably the best player they drafted from that school, could never find a spot in the rotation and is now playing in NY.

Luol Deng Often injured and we never see him at the end of the season anymore. Has a ton of potential, but I fear he will be a bust with a huge contract that he isn't earning.

So can they please stop drafting from this school?

We can go deeper.

Danny Ferry came in with all the hype as the next great thing and was going to lead Cleveland to a championship, he wound up often injured, and rode the bench in S.A. to a title.

Christian Leattner (sp?) Was the new golden boy, even got selected to the Dream Team (over Zeke & Shaq), go to the league and fizzled quick.

Grant Hill Was probably the best player Duke ever produced, he got injured and was never the same, all the potential he had was wasted, he's playing well in Phoenix, but he is 36 years old and is going to be retiring soon and hasn't led any team to the promised land.

Bobby Hurley Injured himself in a crash soon after being drafted by Sacremento, played a couple of seasons and was gone.

Cherokee parks Played briefly and was never heard from again.

Antonio Lang Played briefly and was never heard from again.

Jeff Caple Did he even make it to the league?

Trajon Langdon (sp?) Played briefly and was never heard from again.

Shane Battier Only solid player that is contributing to a team and hasn't been injured much of his career.

J. J. Reddick Can't even get off the bench in Orlando and when he does get in, he usually stinks up the joint. And they made videos teaching his shooting form. He was the ACC all-time leading scorer, until Tyler Hansbrough passed his last year.

There are a ton more, but I'm not going into all of that.

I'll do you one better though. Name me ONE Duke player that led his team or was a MAJOR factor in a team winning a title.
