Last month, Luol Deng announced he will be the face of Great Britain's basketball team in this summer's Olympic games. It was a promise he made that could affect his upcoming season with the Bulls.

In an interview with the Chicago Tribune's K.C. Johnson, Deng said he is committed to the Olympics and hasn't decided whether he will opt for surgery on his left wrist that has been giving him problems for the majority of the season. Deng reported he's gotten used to playing with the injury and has learned to play more with his affected hand.

Deng first returned to the court on Feb. 4 after sustaining the tear in his wrist. If he does decide to have surgery after the Olympics, he will miss the start of the upcoming NBA season.

That means he and Rose would both be out. Yikes.
