Bulls’ Kris Dunn focusing on staying healthy for 2019-20 season
Kris Dunn of the Chicago Bulls has never played a full season in his three years as a pro. In fact, the number of games he’s played for a season has dwindled from 78 games to 52 to 46. As such, the main priority for the 2019-20 season is to stay healthy. This is key for his ultimate mission of helping the Bulls turn things around.
“The biggest thing for me is just staying healthy,” Dunn said, per Darnell Mayberry of The Athletic. “Just be there for my team and go out there and play my butt off.”
“You can say it’s fluke (injuries). You can say it’s part of the game,” Dunn said. “I think I’ve made some changes to be able to take care of my body even more this year. We’ll see what happens.”
To achieve this, the 25-year-old revealed that he’s changed his diet. He doesn’t eat fast food anymore. And even at home, he takes time to stretch the muscles of his worn-out body.
“I’m eating way better,” Dunn said. “My friends make fun of me now because I’m eating better. I’m not doing fast food or any of that. Going home and taking care of my body even more; stretching at night. They call it the Normatec. Using the Normatec. Getting ready. Just doing all the little things I can to be able to be ready for the season.”
Hopefully, this mindset and lifestyle change will be for the better. Dunn has proven that when he’s healthy and presented with an opportunity, he will seize it and showcase what he’s got.
