Bulls’ Kris Dunn and Otto Porter Jr. ruled out vs. Bucks

Kris Dunn, Otto Porter Jr., Bulls

The Chicago Bulls will be shorthanded for their game against the Milwaukee Bucks, as the team ruled out Kris Dunn and Otto Porter Jr.

According to Cody Westerlund of 670 The Score,  Dunn is dealing with migraine issues while Porter Jr. has a leg injury.

With the absences, Ryan Arcidiacono and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot are expected to slide into the starting lineup for Chicago. The injuries will also likely bump Antonio Blakeney into the rotation for the game.

Otto Porter Jr. had to leave Saturday’s win over the Boston Celtics in the second quarter with what has been diagnosed as a lower left leg strain. In six games for the Bulls so far, the former Washington Wizards swingman is averaging 17.8 points and 5.2 rebounds.

On the other hand, Bulls coach Jim Boylen called Dunn’s migraine “severe” and said the guard isn’t a lock to be ready to play by Wednesday when they travel to take on the Memphis Grizzlies.

Kris Dunn has been cold recently, averaging just 4.7 points on 28.0 percent shooting over his last four games.

The Bulls are on a roll and have won three straight games. They are up against the league-leading Bucks that have won four straight, though the Milwaukee team will be without All-Star Giannis Antetokounmpo who is dealing with a right knee soreness.
