Bulls' Hamilton, Deng expected back vs. Wizards

The SportsXchange

Chicago Bulls guard Richard Hamilton and forward Luol Deng are expected to play Saturday night against the Washington Wizards, ESPN Chicago reported.

Hamilton has been out the past 12 games with a left foot injury and Deng injured his right ankle Tuesday against the Houston Rockets.

"(Hamilton) went through shootaround, everything is good so far," coach Tom Thibodeau said Saturday morning. "If there aren't any problems, he'll go."

Thibodeau also said that Deng should be ready as well.

Marco Belinelli has started in Hamilton's place and averaged 15 points per game, but Thibodeau did not say who would start against the Wizards.
