New Bulls GM Marc Eversley told the media that Kris Dunn didn't participate in the Bulls' minicamp because he is still "not healthy" as he continues to recover from an MCL injury that he suffered on January 31.
Dunn is a restricted free agent this offseason and definitely improved his stock in 2019-20 by proving that he can play multiple positions on the court and does not need to be pigeon-holed into the point guard position. He should garner some interest around the league and it will be interesting to see how much money the Bulls' new management is willing to invest in the 26-year-old.

Kris Dunn has elected to sit out the Bulls' upcoming three-week voluntary offseason program.
This comes as no surprise given Dunn's upcoming free-agency. His 2019-20 season ended prematurely due to a knee injury and while he appears to be fully recovered, he does not want to risk injury before deciding on a team for next season. Dunn remains one of the elite on-ball defenders in the league and is sure to warrant the attention of multiple teams over the coming months. He finished the season as a top-90 asset in 9-cat formats and should he land in a favorable situation, he could make for a sneaky late-round flyer type.

Even though Kris Dunn forfeited his starting job at the point for the Bulls, he still managed to average 7.3 points, 3.6 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 2.0 steals, good for 98/88 value in 8/9-cat formats.
Dunn filled in the void at the small forward position after Otto Porter Jr. and Denzel Valentine went down with injuries. He made 32 starts and was a key piece of a young Bulls team that tried to make a push for the playoffs. Still, the defensive minded guard struggled with his 3-point shot making just 0.6 triples per game on a career-low .259 percent and it’s uncertain where he ends up next year as he is a restricted free agent.

Jovan Buha of The Athletic writes that there have been multiple rumors connecting the Clippers with impending free agent Kris Dunn.
Dunn would only add to the Clippers' collection of outstanding defensive talent, though he may be hunting for a role closer to the starting lineup in a perfect world. He's currently shelved by a right MCL sprain that was initially expected to sideline him for the entire season. No matter where Dunn ends up, it's going to take a perfect set of circumstances for him to produce worthwhile numbers outside of the steals category.

Jim Boylen confirmed to reporters on Tuesday that Kris Dunn (knee) will miss the remainder of the season.
This was the expectation after the Bulls gave Dunn a 4-6 week timetable not too long ago. If you haven't already, it is time to move on from Dunn. Otto Porter Jr. is back and is already having a minute increase, so owners should look to see if he is still available on the waiver wire.

Tomas Satoransky was solid in his 33 minutes on Thursday as the Bulls fell for the seventh time in a row, scoring 12 points to go with six rebounds and eight assists.
Sato had a nice line, but he lacks the exciting explosiveness to make him more than a late middle-round value in fantasy. He should continue to produce top-100 value as long as Kris Dunn is on the shelf, but he's not going to win anyone a league.

In a recent mailbag, K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports said he believes the Bulls have a "good chance" of bringing back impending RFA Kris Dunn.
Dunn had emerged as a starter on the wing this season thanks to Otto Porter's injury, and was actually turning in a top-100 season for fantasy GMs thanks to 2.0 steals per contest. He may miss the rest of the season thanks to a right MCL sprain, which could cost him some serious dollars in free agency, though the Bulls are on the inside track when it comes to retaining his services. There aren't many teams with cap space this summer and Dunn, a non-shooter whose value comes from excellent defense, may not be well-rounded enough to attract attention from the teams with spending money this summer. Whatever happens, it's been a strong year from Dunn, who looked to be on the outs in Chicago.

The Bulls announced this morning that Kris Dunn will continue his current rehabilitation program of his medial collateral ligament sprain for the next 4-6 weeks before progressing to functional training.
A determination will be made at that time if additional treatment is required so it’s not certain that Dunn will be able to return to action this year. He is now a drop in standard leagues and the Bulls will rely on Tomas Satoransky and Coby White for the foreseeable future.

According to reports, there is a growing expectation within the Bulls organization that Kris Dunn may miss the remainder of the season due to his right knee MCL sprain.
Nothing is certain at the moment, but fantasy owners should prepare for the possibility that Dunn will be shut down. He has dealt with a lot of swelling and the Bulls are now five games behind the Magic, who currently hold the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. Coby White could see steady minutes at guard the rest of the way, but he has only shot 37 percent from the field this season.

Chandler Hutchison will start on Thursday vs. the Pelicans despite dealing with some soreness in his right shoulder.
Hutchison could be in line for an increased role on Thursday with Denzel Valentine and Kris Dunn both out. He has not done enough to enter the standard league conversation.

Chandler Hutchison (right shoulder soreness), Ryan Arcidiacono (right elbow discomfort) and Tomáš Satoranský (left ankle soreness) are all listed as probable ahead of Thursday's tilt vs. the Pelicans.
The Bulls have been very thorough with their injury reporting so far this season. It would come as a shock if any of these three players don't play on Thursday. Sato should be rostered in standard leagues while Hutchison is on the fringes but should see an increased workload with Denzel Valentine and Kris Dunn sidelined. Arcidiacono is not currently on the fantasy radar.

The Bulls announced this morning that Kris Dunn will be reexamined following an initial two-week phase of immobilization and physical therapy.
Dunn injured his knee on Friday against the Nets and he underwent an MRI which confirmed the initial diagnosis of a medial collateral ligament sprain. Chandler Hutchison is the next man up while Coby White, Ryan Arcidiacono and Denzel Valentine should also see a few more minutes. With fantasy playoffs rapidly approaching, owners will have to make a tough decision on whether to hold or drop Dunn.

Kris Dunn has been diagnosed with a sprained MCL and the Bulls have not established a timeline for his return.
It didn't look great when Dunn went down, and he shouldn't be expected back for multiple weeks. Although he's been a middle-round option this season, almost all of that comes from his elite steals (2.0), so fantasy GMs will have a tough call when it comes to holding vs. dropping. Ryan Arcidiacono figures to get more work, and Chandler Hutchison will rejoin the starting five in the small forward spot that Dunn has taken over this season.

Kris Dunn (right knee) is being listed as out for Sunday's game versus the Raptors.
Dunn will not travel with the team and stay back in Chicago to undergo further testing. He looks to be looking at a lengthy absence, but it may be wise to hold him until we receive the diagnosis.

Kris Dunn (right knee) will head back to Chicago for further tests and is not expected to play on Sunday.
Dunn got hurt at the outset of Friday's game and it didn't look great. He's been a huge lift to Chicago's surprisingly competent defense and is one of the league's best thieves with 2.7 steals per game, so fantasy GMs who have been enjoying his top-90 value so far this year should look for alternatives. Ryan Arcidiacono started the second half in his place and might be an add if you need some assists.
