(WSCR) The eight-game winning streak may not have been the only thing broken with the Magic’s win over the Bulls on Thursday night.
After the game, Luol Deng, who has been playing with a torn ligament in his wrist, admitted he may need to reevaluate the status of his injured left hand.
“I hate talking about my wrist, but I’m going to talk with the medical staff and Thibs,” Deng told the Chicago Tribune. “The past few games, it has escalated a little bit. We have to kind of bring it down again. I’ve been trying to avoid it and everything but it’s a tough one.”
Still, Deng was adamant that he would not undergo surgery to repair the damage.
“I said it from the start: I’m not taking that route,” he said. “Mostly it’s going to be rest. It’s definitely better than when I first did it and when I first came back. But there was a period of time when it felt great. The last few games, the pain is kind of high again. I have to control it and monitor it.
“I just have to find ways to adjust my game. I’ve proved I can play with it. Some days it’s going to feel great. Some days it’s going to feel terrible. We just have to bring it down.”
