Thibodeau: Deng Unlikely to Need Surgery
Chicago Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said Friday he does not think Luol Deng will need surgery on his left wrist, and he expects the All-Star forward to be in camp on time after he represents the United Kingdom in the Olympics.
“He’s feeling a lot better; his wrist is a lot stronger,” Thibodeau said on “The Waddle & Silvy Show” on ESPN 1000. “I think it’s going to work out well.”
When asked if Deng would have surgery, Thibodeau said: “No, I don’t think so. The way it is right now, he’s going to play in those (Olympic) Games, he’s going to come back and continue his training. He said his wrist is feeling a lot better.”
When asked if Deng should be in camp on time, Thibodeau said: “I believe so.”
