WASHINGTON (AP) - Cleveland Cavaliers forward Luol Deng was a late scratch from Friday night’s game against the Washington Wizards because of flu-like symptoms.

Deng, who was acquired by Cleveland from Chicago on Jan. 7, is the team’s second-leading scorer with a 15.3 points per game average in 14 games since the trade.

Kyrie Irving, the Cavaliers‘ leading scorer, missed Friday’s shootaround because of illness, but he is in the starting lineup.
