Report: Kris Dunn out for two weeks with dislocated finger

Kris Dunn

Chicago Bulls point guard Kris Dunn is likely done this preseason. Furthermore, his status for opening day appears to be in jeopardy also after he dislocated his finger during the Bulls’ 114-101 win over the Milwaukee Bucks Friday.

Dunn hurt his finger while contesting a dunk attempt by Bucks guard Sterling Brown. According to Vincent Goodwill of NBC Sports, Kris Dunn then made his way to the locker room, where team physicians attended to his injury. Dunn’s teammates found the image of the guard’s finger pretty grotesque when he turned around to the bench leading Goodwill to say that he thinks Dunn’s injury could be serious.

Bulls head coach Fred Hoiberg would’ve preferred fielding questions about how Chicago pulled off a victory, but was left answering inquiries about Dunn’s status and expected return.

Drafted fifth overall last year by the Minnesota Timberwolves, Kris Dunn mostly spent his time in the shadows of Ricky Rubio, playing just 17.1 minutes and averaging 3.8 points and 2.4 assists per game in 2016-17.

Dunn was traded by Minnesota to the Bulls along with Zach Lavine and Lauri Markkanen in exchange for a package that included Jimmy Butler.
