Chicago Bulls forward Luol Deng tweeted that the viral flu that forced him to miss Game 6 against the Brooklyn Nets on Thursday got worse on Friday, causing him to make another trip to the emergency room, ESPNChicago.com reported.
It remains uncertain whether he will play in Saturday's Game 7 against the Nets.
"It really upsets me that everyone thinks I would miss a game bc of the flu. I've played a lot of games w the flu in my career," Deng tweeted Friday afternoon, according to ESPNChicago.com.
Deng also tweeted that he was taken to the emergency room Wednesday, and his symptoms indicated he might have meningitis, which required a spinal tap.
"As a result of the spinal tap I suffered the worst headache I've ever experienced and been the weakest I've ever felt," Deng tweeted.
"Yesterday I was unable to walk or even get out of bed. I made it to the UC and was sent home. (Friday) morning my symptoms worsened."
Deng tweeted later: "Now I'm back in the ER where I may have to spend the night... I want my teammates and Bulls fans to know I would NEVER miss a game bc of flu. If I'm medically cleared I will fly to NY to be with my team and try to win game 7."
Also, Bulls said guard Kirk Hinrich is questionable for Game 7 because of a bruised left calf. Hee will be a game-time decision.
