    Luol Deng has signed with the Bulls so he can retire with the organization.

    Deng spent nine seasons with the Bulls, so it's fitting that he hangs it up with Chicago. A former two-way force, Deng was a key member of some talented Bulls teams and was widely regarded to be a quality individual off the court.

    Luol Deng (sore left Achilles) sat out Wednesday's season finale against the Nuggets.

    Deng's signing under the Thibs regime elicited some chuckles but it ended up being much ado about nothing. The veteran only logged 22 appearances this year and sat out the final 21 games of the season due to left Achilles soreness. He was around the top-250 on a per-game basis and deep-league owners were able to capitalize on that a little bit since pretty much all of his run came in one big stretch in February, but Deng could be looking at the end of the line.

    Luol Deng (sore left Achilles) has been ruled out of Tuesday's game with the Raptors.

    Deng last played on February 27 and the Wolves have yet to just rule him out for the season, though that's what's happening.

    Luol Deng (sore left Achilles) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Mavs.

    Deng hasn't played since February 27, so we are very likely not to see him for the rest of the season. At age 33, Deng obviously has no incentive to rush back for the eliminated Wolves.

    Luol Deng (sore left Achilles) has been ruled out of Saturday's matchup with the Sixers.

    The Wolves would save us all some time by just shutting him down. This will be game No. 15 on the sidelines for the veteran, who is not a fantasy option.

    Luol Deng (sore left Achilles) will not play against the Warriors on Friday.

    Deng will miss his 14th straight game on Friday. There isn't much value to take away for fantasy purposes.

    Luol Deng (sore left Achilles) will miss Tuesday's game against the Clippers.

    Deng's been out for multiple weeks now and while the Wolves haven't shut him down officially, that looks like where we're headed.

    Luol Deng (sore left Achilles) has been ruled out for Thursday against the Hornets.

    There's no need to pay attention to Deng in any fantasy leagues at this point, as available minutes should be going to Keita Bates-Diop even if Deng can get healthy again.

    Luol Deng (left Achillies soreness) is out for Tuesday's game vs. GSW.

    Keita Bates-Diop should continue seeing the 25.1 mpg he has averaged the last two weeks. Deng is running out of time to return this season and can be ignored for fantasy purposes.

    Luol Deng (left Achilles soreness) is doubtful for Tuesday's game vs. the Warriors.

    Keita Bates-Diop should continue to get the backup wing time he got on Sunday, playing 17 minutes with low usage.

    Deng has missed over a week of action now and does not need to be monitored in fantasy leagues.

    Luol Deng (sore left Achilles) will not play on Thursday.

    The Wolves haven't said anything about when Deng might be back but there's not much reason to keep monitoring his status in fantasy. He had fleeting value when Andrew Wiggins was out but Keita Bates-Diop might've taken that role over the last week.

    Luol Deng (sore left Achilles) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Nuggets.

    With rookie Keita Bates-Diop playing well, there's no reason for the Wolves to play Deng heavy minutes even when he does return. He's not on the fantasy radar.

    Luol Deng (sore left Achilles) is out on Sunday against the Knicks.

    With Deng, Andrew Wiggins (quad), Karl-Anthony Towns (knee) and Robert Covington (knee) all out, Keita Bates-Diop, Anthony Tolliver, Dario Saric and Taj Gibson will be very active in this game.
