CHICAGO, May 4 (UPI) -- The Chicago Bulls said star forward Luol Deng remained hospitalized due to flu-like symptoms and would miss Saturday's decisive playoff game at Brooklyn.

Deng remained in Chicago after sitting out Thursday's Game 6 against the Nets and did not accompany the team to New York for Game 7.

The Chicago Tribune said Deng developed complications after undergoing a spinal tap this week.

Deng averaged 13.8 points, 7.6 rebounds and 3.8 assists in the first five games of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals series against the Nets.
