Kris Dunn made his season debut after his personal absence (birth of child) on Monday and hit just 4-of-13 shots and a 3-pointer for nine points, four rebounds, seven assists and four turnovers in 30 minutes.
He wasn't great, but the boards and assists were helpful. This was Game 1 for Dunn and he'll be better than this on most nights. Look for him to have a little more success against Kemba Walker and the Hornets on Wednesday. Oct 22 - 11:31 PM

Date:

Kris Dunn (personal) will start and will not have a minutes limit in his regular-season debut on Monday against the Mavericks.

Dunn missed the first two games of the year to be there for the birth of his son, but he's rejoined the team, and his return to the starting five should coincide with Cameron Payne returning to the second-unit and irrelevancy in all leagues. Feel free to get Dunn active.
Oct 22 - 7:01 PM

Kris Dunn has been away from the team due to the birth of his son but he's expected to join the Bulls in Dallas before Monday's game.

Dunn will miss shootaround, but is still expected to be in the lineup come gametime. Cameron Payne will likely head back to the bench with Dunn back in the fold, which is a welcomed sight for Bulls fans. Ryan Arcidiacono will move back to the third point guard role. Get Dunn back in your lineups.
Oct 20 - 6:24 PM

Kris Dunn (personal) has been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. the Pistons but will rejoin the team for Monday's game vs. Dallas.

Dunn is on the east coast with his family following the birth of his son. The good news is that he will make his season debut on Monday night. Cameron Payne will start Saturday vs. Detroit. Payne also started Thursday's game but logged just 21 minutes. Ryan Arcidiacono played 28 minutes off the bench.
Oct 20 - 12:54 PM

Kris Dunn (personal) has not yet rejoined the Bulls and his status for Saturday's game vs. Detroit is undetermined.

Dunn is away from the team following the birth of his son and it is unclear if he will join the Bulls in time to suit up for Saturday's contest. Coach Fred Hoiberg said he is unsure who will start at point guard if Dunn is unavailable. Cameron Payne started in Thursday's season opener but logged just 21 minutes. Ryan Arcidianco played 28 minutes off the bench. This is a situation to avoid until Dunn returns.
Oct 19 - 1:57 PM

Kris Dunn (personal) will not suit up for Thursday's season opener against the 76ers, and Cameron Payne will draw the start in his place.

It's unclear exactly why Dunn will be away from the team tonight, but hopefully, he'll be able to get back in time for Saturday's game against the Pistons. Cameron Payne can be hit-or-miss, but he should be looking at quality minutes tonight, which puts him on the radar as a potential punt play in DFS. Tyler Ulis or Ryan Arcidiacono should also see minutes tonight with Dunn unavailable.

Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg has had high praise for his point guard, Kris Dunn.

Over the Bulls first two preseason contests, Dunn is averaging 11.0 points, 6.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 21.3 minutes, while shooting a scorching 61.5 percent from the floor, 50 percent from downtown and 100 percent from the FT line. "I look at the way Kris has handled everything since he got back (to Chicago) in September full time, he's just been a rock star," said Hoiberg. "He's been coming in every day to work with a great approach and we've loved what we've seen out of him early on in the season." Dunn's fantasy value is on the rise with Lauri Markkanen (right elbow) sidelined to start the season.
Oct 6 - 11:35 AM

Kris Dunn notched 12 points, eight rebounds, three assists and two blocks in 23 minutes vs. New Orleans on Sunday.

Dunn's season ended with a toe injury last year, but that was partly a precaution from a team with no incentive to win games. The toe isn't a concern and tonight's performance should also silence offseason chatter about Chicago being displeased with his workout regimen. It's just one game, but fantasy owners have another reason to be pleased -- Dunn was unusually efficient with 5-of-7 FGs and 2-of-2 FTs.
Sep 30 - 9:46 PM

Bulls associate head coach Jim Boylen dismissed reports that the team wasn't pleased with Kris Dunn's offseason workout regimen.

The Chicago Sun-Times reported in June that due to concerns about Dunn's offseason effort, "the idea of the Bulls selecting a point guard in the NBA Draft ... is back in play." They ultimately drafted Wendell Carter Jr. and Chandler Hutchison, of course, which undermines any perceived discontent with Dunn. "I don’t know how that [rumor] got generated," Boylen said. "[Dunn] has always done everything we’ve asked him to do." Dunn's turf-toe injury has had plenty of time to heal and he heads into training camp as the clear-cut starting PG.
Aug 29 - 8:36 PM

The Bulls coaching staff and front office "have been less than impressed" with Kris Dunn’s early summer work habits so far, according to Joe Cowley of the Chicago Sun Times.

First, we have to add that this report comes from someone who hasn't exactly been kind to the Bulls over the years, so keep that in mind. Plus, President John Paxson said Dunn will return as the starting point guard back in April. That aside, this is interesting to hear at this point of the year, and maybe Dunn missing so much time late in the year has influenced the Bulls front office. Dunn should still be considered the heavy favorite to start on opening night, but don't be shocked if the Bulls go with another PG at No. 7 in the draft.
Jun 8 - 7:30 PM

Vice President of Basketball Operations John Paxson said Kris Dunn will return as the starting point guard.

"I feel really good about going into the next season with [Kris] Dunn as our starter and [Cameron] Payne as our backup." There was no mention of third-string PG Jerian Grant. Dunn has his flaws offensively, but his first season in Chicago was a success. He averaged 13.6 points, 6.3 assists, 4.2 rebounds, 2.0 steals, 0.6 blocks, 1.1 triples and 2.5 turnovers in 43 starts, and if he improves his shot selection, his jumper and his ball security, Dunn will have a lot of intrigue as a mid-round pick.
Apr 12 - 12:22 PM

Kris Dunn (toe) will not play again this season.

We're surprised it took the Bulls this long to announce that his season is over. The Bulls were super cautious with Dunn and hopefully this injury doesn't linger into the offseason. He appears to be locked in as the Bulls point guard of the future and had a nice bounce-back season with averages of 13.6 points, 6.3 assists, 4.2 rebounds, 2.0 steals, 0.6 blocks, 1.1 triples and 2.5 turnovers in 43 starts.
Apr 2 - 1:11 PM

Kris Dunn (toe) is listed as out for Friday against the Magic.

It's starting to feel like his season is... Dunn. Jokes aside, hopefully his toe injury isn't going to affect him outside of this season or off the court.

Mar 30 - 2:14 PM

Kris Dunn (toe) remains out for Thursday night against the Heat.

He doesn't have a timetable and it's possible he's out for the season. It's Cameron Payne time again with Jerian Grant likely to back him up.
Mar 29 - 5:29 PM

Kris Dunn (toe) will not play on Tuesday vs. the Rockets.

He remains without a timetable to return and may not see the floor again this season. Dunn is making progress and exercised on an elliptical machine on Saturday in his walking boot, but the Bulls would love to be cautious and improve their draft position at the same time. Cameron Payne is locked in as the starting PG for Chicago's 4-game week.
