CHICAGO (AP) -Chicago Bulls forward Luol Deng left Saturday night's game against the Houston Rockets with a bruised tibia.
It was not immediately clear when or how Deng, the Bulls' fourth-leading scorer, was injured. He played 15 minutes in the first half, scoring six points, but did not start the third quarter.
Losing Deng would be a major blow to the Bulls, who are trying to grab the final seed in the Eastern Conference.
