SOUTH Norwood basketball superstar Luol Deng is in hospital in the United States with suspected meningitis. The Chicago Bulls star missed the sixth game of his team's NBA play-off series on Thursday night. A flu virus has disrupted the Bulls camp but the 28-year-old took to Twitter to say his condition was more serious. He tweeted: "It really upsets me that everyone thinks I would miss a game because of the flu. My symptoms indicate I may have meningitis. "On Wednesday I was taken to the Emergency Room and in order to play on Thursday I was required 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. "Yesterday I was unable to walk or even get out of bed. I made it to the United Center and was sent home. On Friday morning my symptoms worsened. "Now I'm back in the ER where I may have to spend the night. I want my team-mates and Bulls fans to know I would never miss a game because of flu. "If I'm medically cleared I will fly to New York to be with my team and try and win Game Seven." The Bulls lost to Brooklyn Nets on Thursday to level the series 3-3. The deciding game will be played on Saturday. Deng, whose family still live in Croydon, is one of the NBA's biggest starts. He captained Great Britain at London 2012.
