However, the Heat’s struggles have not made Deng want out. “I’ve had no issues,” he said. “My whole thing this year has been trying to get it right. It’s never been that I’m unhappy. Just because there are trade rumors– I’m not the one asking for a trade… I’m not the one starting the rumors or whatever’s going on. I know just as much as you, honestly.” Palm Beach Post

No deal is imminent, sources said, but it has become clear the Grizzlies are intent on upgrading their wing rotation. The teams behind third-place Memphis (25-10) in the Western Conference standings already have made notable in-season additions -- such as Dallas (Rajon Rondo) and Houston (Corey Brewer and Josh Smith) -- and Oklahoma City has yet to move into playoff position.

Deng said before Sunday's game that it wasn't difficult for him watching his former team, and said that he "had to move on," but it was clear from all parties involved that Sunday's affair was a little different because of the circumstances. "I think it's always going to be strange for me facing the Bulls," Deng admitted. "Obviously because it's Chicago, but just the guys on the team. It's still really the same guys. You just got Boozer, Boozer's gone, now it's Gasol instead. But most of the guys it's still really the same faces. It's more than a game with those guys. So when I see them it's friends, it's family, it's guys that I've done a lot with. [They] know a lot about me, I know a lot about them." ESPN.com

Norris Cole and forward Luol Deng moved a step closer to returning to the court. Both were able to complete Saturday's practice, a day before the Heat faces the Memphis Grizzlies at FedEx Forum. "I'm feeling better, a lot better," Cole said. "I was able to go through more practice. I felt good. We'll see what happens (Sunday)." South Florida Sun-Sentinel

Bosh delivered the dagger — a 3-pointer 1:23 from the end that brought that 11-point lead. He credited Chalmers, who credited coach Erik Spoelstra, who credited everybody — including three rookies (James Ennis, Shabazz Napier and Andre Dawkins) who played together. Miami, on the tail end of a back-to-back, was without Dwyane Wade (hamstring), Luol Deng (wrist) and Josh McRoberts (foot). “We’re going to put the ball in [Chalmers’] hands sometimes, especially late in the game and especially with guys out. We were relying on him a bit and he came through,” said Bosh, who had a key offensive rebound that led to his own jumper, Chalmers assisting, to ignite the key 9-2 streak. New York Post

Miami forward Luol Deng sustained a hard hit to the arm in the second quarter of Tuesday’s 108-91 loss to the Rockets and might miss time. Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said after the game he was unsure whether Deng will be available when Miami visits the Hornets on Wednesday. “He’s not going to make any excuses for it, but he got whacked on the arm and you could see he just wasn’t quite the same in terms of being able to lift his arm and play normal,” Spoelstra said.
