Deng will not suit up tonight against the Lakers

Injuries hit both teams. Tonight’s matchup against the Bulls won’t feature Turiaf or Deng:

ESPN: Deng, who finished with 10 points and seven rebounds in 27 minutes, was ruled out of the second half of the Bulls’ L.A. double header — Sunday’s meeting with Kobe Bryant and the Lakers — and does not expect to play against the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday.

“I’m not going to play tomorrow or Tuesday,” said Deng, who will be examined by team doctors and possibly undergo an MRI scan on his back Sunday. “I would think I’m out until Saturday [against the New York Knicks].
