2012 NBA All-Star Game: Bulls Forward Luol Deng Suffers Minor Injury In 1st Quarter

That is the same wrist in which Deng tore a ligament back in January; that injury forced him to sit out for seven games, so the precautions taken Sunday night certainly are understandable. He logged a little over five minutes in the All-Star game and finished 0-2 from the field with one assist.
