Bulls Luol Deng says he lost 15 pounds

Officially, Luol Deng is listed as day-to-day by Tom Thibodeau and the Chicago Bulls. He was back at the Bulls practice facility on Thursday.

But he said he has lost 15 pounds though this medical ordeal which was much worse than the flu that was originally announced and he didnt look like a guy who could play, or contribute a whole lot if he did.

His entire interview is below, but here is the money quote via Aggrey Sam of CSNChicago.com.

I tried to shoot a little bit and I struggled. I couldnt do it. Well see, he said after the Bulls practice Thursday afternoon at the Berto Center. I want to play, but I dont know what I can do. I havent done anything. It really sucks.

Its really my first day out of the house and out of the hospital. I havent really left my bed much or done much, the NBAs back-to-back minutes-per-game leader added. Im weak and I have headaches; when Im moving around a lot, my headache increases. Thats really the main thing.
