M.S. Boyer and J. Valade, who cover the Cavaliers at Cleveland.com, tweeted the following on Deng's status.
Luol Deng will miss #Cavs season finale Wednesday with sore back, Mike Brown said.In a game that means nothing in the standings, expect several reserves to get significant minutes. Alonzo Gee and Matthew Dellavedova should see significant playing time in Deng's absence. Gee had 11 points, seven rebounds and three assists in 20 minutes. Dellavedova come off the bench and scored 10 points in 32 minutes.

Deng, a 10-year veteran out of Duke, will finish the 2013-2014 season with an average of 16 points and 5.7 rebounds per game, which nearly matches his career averages in points and rebounds. Deng has played all but 40 of his 677 NBA games with the Chicago Bulls.
