Bulls guard Kris Dunn out vs. Grizzlies on Wednesday

Kris Dunn

The Chicago Bulls host the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday, and the team will be without starting point guard Kris Dunn.

Dunn suffered a back injury on Monday against the Milwaukee Bucks after landing hard on his rear. The guard didn’t practice on Tuesday.

Kris Dunn is in his second season with the Bulls. The 24-year-old is averaging 11.7 points, 4.2 rebounds and 6.5 assists per game while shooting 43.4 percent from the field, 33.9 percent from beyond the arc and 78.4 percent from the free-throw line.

All signs point toward the Bulls starting Ryan Arcidiacono in place of Dunn against the Grizzlies. Chicago is 13-44 on the season, 13th place in the Eastern Conference standings.

It’s been a tough season so far Kris Dunn. He hasn’t taken the next step and has dealt with multiple injuries this season. Dunn was acquired by the Bulls from the Minnesota Timberwolves in the Jimmy Butler trade.

There are some in Chicago who don’t believe Dunn is the point guard of the future and he hasn’t done anything this season on the court to prove that he is.

At best, Kris Dunn is a backup point guard who can play good defense and run an offense. He can’t really score the ball that well, though, and in today’s NBA, your point guard has to be able to score.
