Complications from a Spinal Tap never sounds good. Luol Deng is a tough basketball player, it would take a lot for him to miss games in the playoffs, but this sounds very serious.
Deng tweeted on Thursday that he was taken to the emergency room on Wednesday and his symptoms indicated he might have meningitis, requiring him to undergo 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.”
Fans need to ease up on players missing games because of illness. It is different that Derrick Rose’s knee, don’t want anyone’s life put in danger on the court.
