According to the latest Sam Smith:
Luol Deng has been cleared for basketball workouts and to begin playing
in the next week or two. Reports are his stress fracture is healed, and
everyone is holding their breath that it doesn't develop again. No one
can be truly sure until Deng begins to play. Chicago attorney Herb
Rudoy of Interperformances with associate Ronald Shade are now
representing Deng after his former agent who negotiated his big deal
with the Bulls, Jason Levien, joined the Kings front office. Deng
likely would require surgery if the fracture reappears.
Well it's certainly great news if Deng's stress fracture is finally healed. Hopefully, he can now workout without limitations, and we'll get to see how good Luol really looks this summer. The fear, of course, is the return of the injury once he pushes himself, but if it's fully healed then it shouldn't be a big issue.
However, I've noted in the past that I've heard Deng isn't 100% healthy though that was based on older updates that this could easily supercede. What concerns me is this article seems to hedge as well. He's been cleared for full basketball activity, but he can begin playing in the next week or two? If he's cleared why can't he begin playing today or at the time of his clearing? Maybe I'm over analyzing the semantics of the article, but it almost sounds like he's cleared, but they're still waiting.
Plenty of other speculation about Boozer (my take is very similar to Sam's, get the guy for a year, not long term), and some other review information on Summer League etc..
