Luol Deng is scheduled to undergo a CT scan Wednesday on his right tibia contusion after sources said he received a second opinion from outside the Bullsorganization that hasn't ruled out a stress fracture.After Deng missed the second half of Saturday's victory over Houston, Bulls officials said X-rays showed a possible season-ending stress fracture.
Vinny Del Negro initially declined to shed insight into his portion of the conversation with general manager John Paxson regarding Derrick Rose's fourth-quarter playing time.
"That's between us," Del Negro said. "We talk all the time."
Asked a second time, Del Negro responded.
"I'll make decisions on the team on what I see fit for players and when they should play and when they don't," Del Negro said. "I know my players better than anybody. Derrick is going to be out there in the fourth quarter. Everyone is going to be held accountable defensively.
"If I feel there's an advantage for us to do certain things in the fourth quarter, those are the decisions I have to make as the head coach. And I'll make them."
