Luol Deng played all but 63 seconds of Great Britain’s 95-75 loss to Russia on Sunday.

Deng is playing for Britain despite a torn ligament in his left wrist.

"The wrist is great," Deng said. "I'm not thinking about it. I'm just playing out there. These games are helping me. So far, I've had no trouble. For those who say I only drive right, I drove left a couple times (Sunday)."

Britain faces an uphill battle in its bid to escape the five-game preliminary round.

"We're the underdog, and it's definitely difficult," Deng said. "It's a different game. It's exhausting. It's definitely different than playing with Derrick (Rose). But it really helps my game also. I get to handle the ball, play pick-and-roll. Saying all that, I just try to do whatever I can to help us win."
