Luol Deng returns to Heat lineup after missing six games

For the last six games, the Heat have been without Luol Deng, who has battled a strained left hamstring. Miami has gone 3-3 in those games and currently sits at second place in the Eastern Conference. Wednesday night in Charlotte, Deng will return to the Heat, although his minutes will be monitored.

Via Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald:

The Heat have been starting Gerald Green in Deng’s place while also giving 28 minutes a night to rookie Justise Winslow, who has shown some things on the defensive end of the floor. It remains to be seen how the rotation will shake out as Deng works his way back, but having him in the lineup will absolutely help the Heat.
