Jerian Grant won the starting job out of camp largely because Kris Dunn dislocated his left index finger midway through the preseason. After an embarrassing 101-69 loss on Saturday to the Thunder, Bulls’ coach Fred Hoiberg might be ready to pull the plug on Jerian Grant. Last season, Hoiberg emphasized Grant’s ability to spread the floor, but he’ll enter the game on Wednesday in Miami as a career 29 percent three-point shooter. Dunn, knocked for his inability to shoot from outside, is also a career 29 percent shooter from three-point range. This is a situation to monitor but both guards are projected to have season-long value.
Update: Hoiberg says Jerian Grant is still the starting point guard.
