Jason Jackson

Brian Forte hits @Luol Deng with a T simply because he was tired of listening … so ridiculous #HEATLive

Ira Winderman

Now Luol Deng with a T after Spoelstra also argued with referees. This is not about officiating. Hawks free throw to follow after break.

Chris Vivlamore

Goran Dragic and Luol Deng scoreless in first half for Heat. #ATLHawks

Ira Winderman

Luol Deng with six first-half turnovers, and scoreless.

Heat now up to 12 turnovers. Looks like Deng, who is out, will go scoreless in first half.

New #Heat starting lineup: Goran Dragic, Dwyane Wade, Henry Walker, Luol Deng, Hassan Whiteside.

Jason Jackson

The @Miami Heat are going 2 have 2 fight 2 keep the @Luol Deng perfection going (9-0 when Deng scores 20 or more pts this season) #HEATLive

Ira Winderman

With Deng still in, have to wonder whether there is any Beasley left.

Ira Winderman

Heat 82, Pelicans 73 going into fourth. Deng with 20, Dragic 18. No Beasley yet in second half.

Ira Winderman

Deng has picked up defensive assignment on Gordon, so Wade on Pondexter.

Jason Calmes

Heat 9-0 when Deng scores more than 20 points. (15 at the half.)

Pelicans 54, Heat 54 at half. Deng with 15, Dragic with 14 for Heat. Beasley with seven on 3 of 6. Wade four points, two fouls.

Joseph Goodman

Luol Deng with 13 points, 4 of 5 shooting. Heat on an 8-0 run. Heat 46, P'cans 39 4:13 2Q.

Beasley to bench. Deng back in.

Jimmy Smith

Tonight's #Heat starters: Deng, Haslem, Whiteside, Wade, Dragic.

Terrific read from @WallaceNBA_ESPN on ex-Great Britain international Luol Deng espn.go.com/nba/story/_/pa…

Ira Winderman

Luol Deng said he was not required to enter NBA concussion protocol after taking blow Wednesday, but said his neck still is sore.

Amin Elhassan

If you haven't read this in-depth profile of @Luol Deng by @WallaceNBA_ESPN, take the time to do so. Excellent read es.pn/1LRInJJ

Chad Ford

Brilliant piece by @WallaceNBA_ESPN : Luol Deng's path of righteousness es.pn/1LRInJJ

Ira Winderman

Beasley genuinely excited about this possibility. Said he understood no room for him with Deng, McRoberts and Granger in offseason.

Ira Winderman

As Erik Spoelstra simplifies, game gets easier for Heat's Luol Deng bit.ly/1zKUUab

ICYMI: Luol Deng 'almost in tears' over Derrick Rose's injury bit.ly/1DbeyNO

Jason Jackson

I have a great team RT @ChefNickC: @Jason Jackson man inside the heat is so good. Watching the Deng and McRoberts episodes. Props. Great TV.

Jason Jackson

Only thing I have in common w a jinx is the letter "J" 😅RT @ISilva07: @Jason Jackson Luol (cont) tl.gd/nirtt6

Joseph Goodman

The Heat famously is 9-0 when Luol Deng scores 20 or more points. He had 21 tonight, including 13 in the third quarter.

Joe Cowley

OK....that was ugly. Trade Luol! Oh wait.

Barry Jackson

Down 7 with 45 sec. left in regulation,Heat wins 93-90 in OT in Orlando. Deng 21; Whiteside 15,13. Walker 2 huge threes final 22 sec. of 4th

Jason Lieser

Down 84-79 w/ :25.1 left, #Heat trying to win this with Dragic, Mario Chalmers, Wade, Deng and Henry Walker. Whiteside on bench.

Joseph Goodman

Deng about to check in. Guessing I was wrong about the whole trainer thing.

Joseph Goodman

Spoelstra tried to send Luol Deng into the game and I think the Heat's trainer nixed the idea.

Jason Lieser

Luol Deng is ready to come back in whenever the Heat say go.

Jason Lieser

Deng keeps rubbing the back of his neck and rolling his head around, but he looks like he's going to try to come back in tonight.

Jason Lieser

Deng (head/neck) seems generally OK. Did not go to the locker room.

Joseph Goodman

Anyway, Luol Deng is in some pain. Holding a bag of ice to the back of his neck.

Jason Lieser

Deng did something to his neck.

Joseph Goodman

Luol Deng hit on the back of his head. Coming out of the game.

Jason Lieser

Looked like head/neck injury for Deng. Keeps blinking.

Ira Winderman

Heat 61, Magic 61 going into fourth. Deng a scoring machine, with 21 to lead Heat.
