ASK IRA: Should Gerald Green as a starter be explored?

  November 28, 2015 Q: Here are my top three reasons why Gerald Green should be the starter over Luol Deng (contingent on him playing defense like he did against Carmelo Anthony): 1) Adds athleticism, especially on the break which helps Goran Dragic's game. 2) Better 3-point threat, which gives...

Heat, vs. Knicks, will get another taste of life without Luol Deng

Luol Deng is the forgotten man in the Heat's starting lineup. Heat fans don't devote as much energy -- and Heat media don't devote as many column inches -- to the Heat small forward as to the other four players,...

Deng misses second consecutive game, out vs. Knicks due to hamstring

Although he said he has made strides with his balky left hamstring, Miami Heat forward Luol Deng opted Friday to sit out against the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden. "We decided this morning," Deng said at the midday shootaround. "We've just got to keep taking it day by day, like I said...

Luol Deng discusses his hamstring issue

Luol Deng says he will be smart when it comes to the pesky hamstring issue that developed over the weekend.

Hamstring finally takes Luol Deng out of Heat lineup

It's not in Luol Deng's nature to take his foot off the gas. So when he had to do it late in Monday night's victory over the New York Knicks, it became apparent that sitting out Wednesday night's game against the Detroit Pistons at the Palace of Auburn Hills was the logical next step. For now,...

Whiteside (illness), Deng (tight left hamstring) make trip to Detroit; Heat reassign Stokes to D-League

The bug that's been going around the Heat locker room finally caught up to Hassan Whiteside. The center missed Tuesday's practice, but still made the flight to Detroit with his teammates. Forward Luol Deng (tight left hamstring) was held out...

Hamstring has Heat's Luol Deng in doubt against Knicks

Forward Luol Deng will be a game-time decision for Monday's game against the New York Knicks at AmericanAirlines Arena due to a sore left hamstring. Deng, who has appeared in each of the Heat's first 12 games, was injured during the third quarter of Saturday's home victory over the Philadelphia...

Deng (tight left hamstring) will be a game-time decision for Heat vs. Knicks

Luol Deng has played through pain before. If he suits up tonight against the Knicks he'll probably do so again. The 12-year veteran forward has been dealing with a tight left hamstring that's been bothering him since the third quarter...

Can the Chicago Bulls keep their streakbusters rep?

The Warriors have started the season 13-0, 3 away from the all-time record to start a season and potentially on their way to a season-long record exceeding that of the '96 Bulls. You know what that means... The Bulls have a history. 3/27/2013 - Ending the Miami Heat's 27-game winning streak The Bulls, playing a season without Derrick Rose, and in this game without Joakim Noah, took down Miami at the height of their powers. It involved a fantastic defensive effort from the combination of Jimmy Butler and Luol Deng, and included a game with a lot of crazy memorable plays and...

Luol Deng stepping up in weight class for Heat in first quarters

Luol Deng isn't a power forward, but he has been playing as one during the first quarter of the Miami Heat's recent games. As part of the effort to get first-round pick Justise Winslow on the court more often, the Heat's first substitution generally has been Winslow entering at small forward for...

Is it time to start resting Dwyane Wade?

With his recent performances, could it be time for Spoelstra to start sitting Wade for rest purposes? With a Thursday night game against the Kings looming, the Heat stand at 6-4 on the season. Before the game against the Timberwolves, we (Yes. I say "we". I'm one of those.) had yet to allow an opposing team to score 100 points in a game this year. As highlighted in Nicolas Meichel's article on the five takeaways from the first ten games, Goran Dragic has not been the same All-NBA performer we paid him to be and Hassan Whiteside has shown to not be a one year wonder. Luol Deng and Chris...

Lakers Highlights: Julius Randle bowls into the Heat's defense for the and-1 finish

And the pins go down. Julius Randle's first step is the lightning of his game, but he brings the thunder when he's banging bodies in the paint. He goes right through Luol Deng for the and-one finish here, taking him off the dribble straight to the bucket: There are professional bowlers, but he's a professional bowling ball at this point. Get out of the way, pins.

How elite of a defender is 19-year-old Heat rookie Justise Winslow? Numbers say very elite

Justise Winslow is only seven games into his NBA career, but the 19-year-old is already doing things for the Miami Heat on defense beyond his years. On most nights, after Luol Deng or other starters go to the bench, Winslow...

Justise Winslow, already a fourth quarter mainstay

Eight different players played for the Heat in its 90-87 loss to Indiana on Friday. Luol Deng was not one of them. That's the first time that has happened this season, but probably won't be the last. Not with the...
