Luol Deng was knocked out of Wednesday’s Game 5 against the Raptors during the second half and did not return due to a left wrist injury.
X-rays taken were inconclusive as the injuries continue to pile up on both sides. If Deng misses time then look for the Heat to bump everybody a slot over and the current rotation players will be maxed out for the most part, with Gerald Green (four points, one rebound, 10 minutes) and Tyler Johnson (six points, four assists, 13 minutes) filling in the gaps.
Deng said he'll play if nothing serious on MRI per @IraHeatBeat

Deng said he was injured in the first half when he braced himself after tripping over a camerman. Said swelling prevented staying in.

Luol Deng basically says his ability to play in Game 6 will have nothing to do with pain. Says it all depends on doctor clearance #Heat
