SW Plastics 2016 Insert Deflection

I am running SolidWorks Plastics 2016 Premium and had a question about insert overmold simulation. We are looking to overmold a tube with a rod sticking out the end and want to know how much the inserts will deflect due to injection pressure hitting them from the side. Does the software have the ability to calculate the deflection or does it only show warp due to mold stresses?
