CHICAGO -- Chicago Bulls forward Luol Deng got elbowed in the teeth by the Philadelphia 76ers' Spencer Hawes late in Thursday's win but he said he did not suffer a concussion.

Deng said he will be re-evaluated Friday and is expecting a trip to the dentist.

"They're loose," he said of his bottom teeth. "Kind of out of position. We'll figure it out (Friday)."

Deng had 12 points and eight rebounds in almost 42 minutes. He admitted that he was still in pain as he got dressed to leave the United Center late Thursday night.

"I got a really bad headache," he said. "No concussion. Just a bad headache, a bad hit. I'll probably be in more pain in the morning."
