Luol Deng Injury: Bulls Forward Will Meet With Team To Discuss Olympics

Chicago Bulls forward Luol Deng has maintained that he plans to play in the 2012 Summer Olympics despite his wrist injury. The Bulls have not prohibited him from doing so, but they naturally have concerns. According to general manager Gar Forman, they're going to sit down with Deng in the near future and hash out all of his options.

"We're going to sit down with Luol some time in the next week," Forman said Tuesday afternoon. "Obviously, the season ended, and we've had Derrick (Rose) and his (knee surgery) over the weekend. Our biggest concern for Luol -- and I know the Bulls' fans concern and Luol's concern -- is his health. We haven't had a chance to sit down with him at length, but we will in the next week and go from there."
